I see problems down the line
I know that I’m right.
There was a dirt upon your hands
doing the same mistake twice
making the same mistake twice

Come on over and be so caught up
its not about compromising.

I see problems down the line
I know that I’m right
I see darkness down the line
I know its hard to fight.
There was a dirt upon your hands
doing the same mistake twice
making the same mistake twice.

Come on over
be so caught up its all about compromise.

I see problems down the line
I know that I’m right.

Don’t let the darkness eat you up (8x)

    He is living life, as we all do, and finds himself making the same mistakes twice, even though he knows the problems are coming. He sees the problems down the line and still he makes the same mistakes again. I think he wants everyone to know that even though you make the same mistakes over and over again you can't allow the darkness of the mistakes engulf you.

    I personally think that what he is trying to portray is a relationship; and the woman has cheated on him, and he needs no convincing he is positive about it because this isn't the first time:
    there was a dirt upon your hands
    doing the same mistake twice
    making the same mistake twice
    But I think he is forgiving her, and being the bigger person by wanting to talk about it (come on over, be so caught up its all about compromise) and he is telling her to not worry, that things will work out (dont let the darkness eat you up)

    Veo los problemas fuera de control
    se que estoy en lo cierto
    hay una montaña de basura sobre tus manos
    cometiendo los mismos errores dos veces
    creando los mismo errores dos veces
    regresa y quédate muy atrapado (no muy seguro)
    no se trata de comprometerce

    Veo los problemas fuera de control
    se que estoy en lo cierto
    veo la oscuridad fuera de control
    se que es dificil luchar
    hay una montaña de basura sobre tus manos
    cometiendo los mismos errores dos veces
    creando los mismos errores dos veces

    Regresa y quédate muy atrapado todo se trata de compromiso..

    Veo los problemas fuera de control
    se que estoy en lo cierto

    No dejes que la oscuridad te chupe...
