Can't you hear me screaming, once again?
Voices you can't hear
Because you are consumed and incontent
With everlasting greed

Don't you see me on my hands and knees?
Begging and bleeding
You're smiling as you bite the hand that feeds
But will you never see?

Always wanting what your eyes can't see
Needing what your arms can't reach
Thinking you are in need
Always hearing what your ears can't hear
Feeling what your hands can't touch
Thinking you're incomplete

(Enough)
It was,
Never enough that I gave to you
All of the horror that you've put me through
(Never enough)
How can I make up my mind this time?
This is where I will draw the line

Sacrificed my life to be with you
Why did you leave me?
There's nothing more from me you can consume
Cause you are incomplete

Always wanting what your eyes can't see
Needing what your arms can't reach
Thinking you are in need
Always hearing what your ears can't hear
Feeling what your hands can't touch
Thinking you're incomplete

(Enough)
It was,
Never enough that I gave to you
All of the horror that you've put me through
(Never enough)
How can I make up my mind this time?
This is where I will draw the line

Everlasting need
Would you please?
Answer me and
Make me complete

Everlasting greed
Would you please?
Set me free
Fulfill all my needs and make me complete

(Enough)
It was,
Never enough that I gave to you
All of the horror that you've put me through
(Never enough)
How can I make up my mind this time?
This is where I will draw the line

Never again will I be with you
No promise eternal carrying us through
I finally made up my mind this time
This is the end, I've drawn the line
Never enough to devour your greed

    Wow, this song resonates in marrow. It a classic break-up song, where a partner has had enough of a partner self-indulgences. I see post referring to greed as major meaning in the song. However, this song doesn't easily get relinquished to that type-casting. It's about conceit, hubris and narcissism. Only, in a seif-absorb mind does a person fail to see the trees from the forest, or see devout devotion of those who care for them. So, as her needs are not being met, she begging for the man tha drew her for the first place. She constantly get burns, denigrated, mistreated, and debased by the person she upheld. What esperates this little tale of woe, is the acts of infidelity and disrespect. Also it become apparent that her attempts to appease him are failing, because he ingores her for some grander scheme. The gets consummated by the narrator ditching her incorrigible fiancee, and becoming emancipated.
