I'm stuck in this bed you made
Alone with a sinking feeling
I saw through the words you said
To the secrets you'd been keeping
It's written upon your face
All the lies how they cut so deeply
You can't get enough you take and take and take and never say

No, you gotta get it inside
You push it back down
You push it back down
No, you'll never get it inside
Push it back down
Blackout
Blood in your eye

You say that it's not your fault
And swear that I am mistaken
You said it's not what it seems
No remorse for the trust you're breaking
You run but then back you fall
Suffocate from the mess your making
You can't get enough you take and take and take and take
Fuck it, are you listening?

No, you gotta get it inside
You push it back down
You push it back down
No, you'll never get it inside
Push it back down
You push it back down
No, you gotta get it inside
You push it back down
You push it back down
No you'll never get it inside
Push it back down
Blackout
Blood in your eye

Floating down
As colors fill the light
We look up from the ground
In fields of paper-white
And floating up
You passed us in the night
A future gazing out
A past to overwrite
So come down
Far below
We've been waiting to collect the things you know
Come down
Far below
We've been waiting to collect what you've let go
Come down, oh
Come down, oh
Come down, oh
Come down, oh
Come down, oh

    I maybe wrong but I think he's talking to someone who has done a great deal of emotional damage. Angry, hurt and distressed as they are denying the things they have done. Denying the pain and destruction they have caused and cowardly hiding behind lies and redirecting the blame back to him when its not his blame to take. He has suffered enough and has a voice and wants this person to recognise the pain he caused. The person has taken so much and by trying to cover up his secrets and creating more lies and has created more pain and chaos to the already devastated writer by disreguarding the pain he has caused him. I read it how it relates to me. I was abused for years as a child and when I spoke up as an adult, my abuser lied and created more heartache and distress to me.

    I had a friend that I thought was a friend. She was my best friend's bf. Couple of nights ago she cheated on him, and when I told him she started lying about it to everyone saying that nothing happened, when I had blatantly seen everything that she had done with my own eyes. This song really fills that emotion of being lied about and being told that I'm the one that's making things up.
