Before you let me fall,
Kill me so I don't feel it at all
And Push my body up against the wall
And pick your poison
'Cause everything feels wrong
And I don't know where I belong

Take me for granted
Make me feel used
Leave me in pieces
Misery is company
Cuz I know that it's real
I've learned to love the pain
'Cause that's the only way that I know how to feel

Maybe it's a phase
Maybe I'll break out of it someday
Maybe this is just my twisted fate
I always feel like everything is wrong
And I don't know where I belong

Take me for granted
Make me feel used
Leave me in pieces
Misery is company
'Cause I know that it's real
I've learned to love the pain
'Cause that's the only way that I know how

To feel your arms around my neck
I'm suffocating with regret from all the wasted hours spent
Believing I was never meant
To touch the face of something real
These so-called 'scars' will never heal
And I put down a deal
'Cause that's the only way that I know how to feel

Take me for granted
Make me feel used
Leave me in pieces
Broken and bruised

Take me for granted
Make me a promise that you'll never keep
I'm fallin' to pieces
Misery is company
'Causei know that it's real
I've learned to love the pain
Cuz that's the only way that I know how to feel

I know how to feel...
You're the only way that I know how to feel

    It is-through my eyes- about only ever really feeling pain. The beggining sounds like he was being dumped, like he was saying "kill me before you say it so it won't hurt me" ya know? And how he doesn't care if he hurts, cause he's never really felt much else and how everything is wrong. He wants to be at least woven into someone's life somehow, so he wants to be used or taken for granted. About how his scars won't heel but he may grow out of them, and they're all from one person in particular, and he wants said person to never leave him or hurt him again, but it's already happened so much that it doesn't really hurt because he's used to the pain, but he want her so bad and it actually does hurt no matter what he hates to admit it and that reminds me of myself and my exboyfriend really bad and well, yeah.
    But that's just me.

    I guess the meaning of this song is the reality of the feeling of giving up on how you feel about someone. To give up on someone who you love/like deeply hurts and denying it will only make you hurt and grasps how love can hurt. And just wanting that feeling to have that someone return your love would be too much to handle because at the same time your hurting.
