This one's of you taking your pills
Sometimes forget and that's okay I guess
This one's of me at my sisters wedding day

All my faces
They all were wasted

You're barely breathing I know
What if it's starting to show?
And I know it won't ever change but it hurts the same

This one's of me throwing up for you
And I'm paler still, and that's the way you wanted it
This one's of you, certain of cancer

And all my faces
They all were wasted on feeling small
You're barely breathing, I know
And now it's starting to show
And I know it won't ever change, but it hurts the same


Yeah

A fever broke somewhere behind July
And remember how I weighed 135
And we collide

All my faces
They all were wasted on feeling small
You're barely breathing, I know
And now it's starting to show
And I know it won't ever change, but it hurts the same

This one's of me, losing more weight
And feeling afraid

    Actually I believe it is literally about "feeling small." If my memory serves me correctly Josh (along with his drug addiction) fought with anorexia; he was bulimic. From what I can tell, the song vents out the regret and guilt of his own "selfishness."
    He's spent so much time and effort on becoming "thin" that he's missing out on the more important things in life. (I'm not sure how true this is to his personal life) but the protagonist of the song spent their own sister's wedding worrying about their image instead of enjoying the moment. And now that they've realized that there are more important things in life, it's too late (the sister is dying from cancer).
    Through it all the sad fact remains that the mentality isn't gone, the protagonist still feels the need to lose weight.
