Under this crushing wait, I'm sinking
It never goes away, the thinking
Echoes in empty rooms decaying
Alone to face the rest of me

So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now[x4]

What the hell is wrong with me?
Why am I torturing myself?
Inhaling all these memories
Like a breath of fire sent from hell

Lead in my gut, not in my spine
I feel distracted all the time
Well lucky me I'm finally all alone
I'll miss you

So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now[x4]

What the hell is wrong with me?
Why am I torturing myself?
Fixated on these memories
Like a prisoner inside a cell

Lead in my gut, not in my spine
I feel distracted all the time
Well lucky me I'm finally all alone
I'll miss you

So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now[x4]

With nothing useful to say and no one listen to it
Filling the deep with the pain, I slowly sink into it
Considering questionable things to try to get me through it
I've tried to push it away but I always give into it
Longer for taste of the rain that finally helps subdue it
And washes this all away

Under this crushing wait, I'm sinking
It never goes away, the thinking
Echoes in empty rooms are saying
Time to erase the rest of me

So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now [until the end]

    To me, it seems as if he is missing someone or something that used to be a big part of his life and he's trying to cope with the loss. He realizes that he's wasted time missing that someone or something asking himself

    "what the hell is wrong with me? Why am i torturing myself? "

    And after all of the pain and loss he's felt, he decides that he is better off without that someone or something and removes any thoughts that would connect him to that someone or something, which he refers to as sentiment.

    "so long sentiment it doesn't matter now. "

    And the repetition of this line is him convincing himself that the words are true.
