(Verse 1)
Lips bleed from the rings,
All these little bruises, the little things,
That provoke the segregation.
Lead the separation.
Cage and clip the wings.
Little noises, the little screams,
That stop the operation.
Conscious amputation.

(Chorus 1)
Just do what you do,
What you do, what you did to me.
Now I'm stuck in between a rock and nowhere,
With nothing,
With no one.
Just do what you do,
What you do, what you've done to me.
Draw the chalk line around the scene, it's over,
Now it's all over.

(Verse 2)
Like a heart that's lost it's beat.
A little boy, that softly weeps,
Overwhelmed with emotion,
Views burns through explosion.
Lost the forest through the trees
Little whispers, the little dreams,
That sparked the recollection.
Constant suffocation.

(Chorus 2)
Just do what you do,
What you do, what you did to me.
Now I'm stuck in between a rock and nowhere,
With nothing,
With no one.
Just do what you do,
What you do, what you've done to me.
Draw the chalk line around the scene, it's over,
Now it's all over.

(Bridge 1)
I can feel my life is changing,
Changing.
I can feel my heart is jaded,
Jaded.

Left the sticks,
Left the stones,
Words don't hurt,
Mend the bones.
I can feel my life is changing.

(Chorus 3)
Just do what you do,
What you do, what you did to me.
Now I'm stuck in between a rock and nowhere,
With nothing,
With no one.
Just do what you do,
What you do, what you've done to me.
Draw the chalk line around the scene, it's over,
Now it's all over.

(Ending/Bridge 2)
Erase the past and leave the pain,
Cleanse the wounds and forget the name.
Lost the will, ran far away,
So it's all over.

Spread the ash and fill the grave,
Lost the tongue and make my way.
Do what you do and go away,
Now it's all over.

    Awesome song. If you relate it to you and yourself - then for me it means doing the same thing over and over again... Not getting anywhere... Till our lives are over. Its a great reminder for me to step up and change!!!

Thank you samantha hobbs i love you very much

    The meaning is about a boy that was abused as a child and now he grows up with similar desires. He has the conscience to know better and is faced between keeping his secret or suicide.
