Sending shivers right down your spine
It's something that you're prone to so divine
You were better at lies (I was never surprised)
At the way that it felt
Now feel the blade (I was always insane)
But you're the one that needs help

(Quick! ) We have the ransom
Tell me how that you can swim when ropes are wrapped around your limbs
(Below! ) There's no more chances
So tell me now that you can swim when ropes are wrapped around your limbs

Breathing slowly never worked for me
I cut the throat of betrayal to watch him bleed
A poetic sonnet passion that I scream to the sky
I'm tearing up I feel your love don't leave me behind
A poetic sonnet passion that I scream to the sky
I'm tearing up I feel your love please don't leave me behind

The smell of vanity it went away
I followed streetlights till I wound up at your place
We traced our veins (we bled for days)
The currents strong enough tonight
I can taste any more
It lasted on my tongue
You weren't strong enough to say

(Quick! ) We have the ransom
Tell me how that you can swim when ropes are wrapped around your limbs
(Below! ) There's no more chances
So tell me now that you can swim when ropes are wrapped around your limbs

Grab my heart
Take this down
With your soul
And bury it in the ground
Go

I talked to you today
I heard the tremble in your voice cradle the fall
I know you'll never change so please just hold on
I know it's hard for you
It's hard to understand betrayal within
There is a fine line between betrayal (betrayal) and your friends

Tell me how that you can swim when ropes are wrapped around your limbs
(Quick! ) We have the ransom
So tell me how that you can swim when ropes are wrapped around your limbs

    i think that it meant that he broke up with his girlfriend over something, and he realized that hes lost without her and he cuts himself to deal with the depression of losing her, then he finally gets up the courage to talk to her and beg for her to come back but she wont come back

    I think it is about losing his love to someone else and the anger that consumes him.
    'tell how that you can swim when ropes are wrapped around you limbs' makes me think the girl he lost angered him.
    'i cut the throat of betrayal to watch it bleed' makes me think he knew who ever the girl he lost was with.
    'a poetic sonnet passion that i scream to the sky' makes me think he still loves the girl but is angry she has left him.
    the rest i think is not with the girl, but with another person, trying to get over her.
    and then the last part is i think his words to the girl he lost.
