Breaking Benjamin – You lyrics

My hands are broken
And time is going on and on, it goes forever (how long)
So I got high and lived all that life that I have taken all for granted

[Chorus:]
Promise me you'll try
To leave it all behind,
'Cause I've elected hell
Lying to myself
Why have I gone blind?
Live another life

You, You

The only way out
Is letting your guard down and never die forgotten (I know)
Forgive me, my love
I stand here all alone, and I can see the bottom

[Chorus:]
Promise me you'll try
To leave it all behind
'Cause I've elected hell
Lying to myself
Why have I gone blind?
Live another life

You, You
You, You
You, You
You, You

    Hmm. I always interpreted it about drugs. Not just cause he says he got high.
    "The only way out is letting your guard down and never die forgotten." the only way to get like out of drugs and that stuff is to allow people to help you. And you have to be prepared for people to hold it over you for the rest of your life and possible even afterwards hence "never die forgotten."
    "Forgive me my love, I stand here all alone and i can see the bottom" obviously someone he cares about knows what he is doing so he apologizes. But he knows where his problem is going to take him and he's not dragging anyone but himself down.
    And overall he doesn't want her to get involved and just to quit while she can. I may be wrong, I may be right. There is obviously more than one way to interpret it.
