Five words, five words is all it would take.
Five words to change your heart and mind.
In the heat of the sun I know you’re the only one.
You still can’t hold yourself together
.

Alone... Alone... all alone
You have this conversation to satisfy your most intimate inner thoughts.
Then you bite your lip when it matters most.
A shade of red in sight.
Can you taste the blood?
Taste it on your lips.

Rip the seam then I’ll show you,
How the strings become the stitches in your mouth.
In your silence we are louder.
When the strings become the stitches in your mouth.

Your growing imagination preparing you for what your heart requires to say.
Then you bite your lip when it matters most.
A shade of red in sight.
Can you taste the blood?
Taste it on your lips.

Rip the seam then I’ll show you,
How the strings become the stitches in your mouth.
In your silence we are louder.
When the strings become the stitches in your mouth.

Five words, repeating over in your head.
That’s all you ever have to do.
Five words. Is it really that hard to say?
You’re worth more than this
You’re worth more than this.

Rip the seam then I’ll show you,
How the strings become the stitches in your mouth.
In your silence we are louder.
When the strings become the stitches in your mouth.

Rip the seam then I’ll show you,
How the strings become the stitches in your mouth.
In your silence we are louder.
When the strings become the stitches in your mouth.

    It is about seeing a loved one doing something that is hurting them;drinking too much,drugs,etc etc and not saying anything to them about it.The song is saying we should tell them they are worth more than this.

    I don't understand it! ♠ I think it's about the process we're through when we want to say somethong but it becomes so hard to say. But well it's kind of difficult.

    Speak up for the lost. Speak up for those who cannot. Sometimes we stay back and just follow the crowd as if we are too embarrassed, as if speaking up about what is right will make us unpopular or uncool. We all could use a little encouragement sometimes and who knows all it might take is for someone to speak up. If that's you than by all means do it!

    I interpret this song to be about how a person feels lost and lacks in self confidence. This could be; not having the assertiveness to be themselves or not being able to express their feelings and/or opinions in a manner in which they usually would.

    "Alone...alone" Being alone - negative consequence of the way you conduct yourself.

    "How the strings become the stitches in your mouth" - possible connotation of puppet strings and feeling manipulated by others around you, causing you to feel insecure and in turn not being able to express important emotions/feelings/opinions etc.

    "Your growing imagination preparing you for what your heart requires to say" - trying to comprehend how to articulate your thoughts and emotions but feeling overwhelmed at the same time.

    "You're worth more than this" - you know you deserve better.

    I'm not saying this is 100% dead on, everyone interprets things differently, which in turn is the beauty of it.
