I spend my life
Becoming invisible
It's hard to maintain
And it's hard to get by
I don't recall
Fight or flight setting in
I have no introduction
I just breath it in like the air
And there's nothing to remember
There is nothing to remember

I owe you nothing
That's all I've got for you
And you'll borrow nothing
That's what you expect of me
So send me a lot
Out of thin sailors knots
And I fear underneath
Your radiant thoughts
My footsteps now
They will echo loudly
All I owe, all I owe
Strides I spend to the finish line
All I owe, all I owe
Strides I spend to the finish line
I'll give you those

You told me something
That scared me to death
Don't take me home
I can't face that yet
I'm ashamed that I'm barely human
And I'm ashamed that
I don't have a heart you can break

I'm just action
And at other times reaction

All I owe, all I owe
Strides I spend to the finish line
All I owe, all I owe
Strides I spend to the finish line
I'll give you those
Just don't make me go home
Give me something to remember
Give me something to remember
Give me something to remember

    In hunger games perspective (since its from the soundtrack), it sounds like katniss talk thinking about what she wants to say to peeta on the way home when she finds out he really does love her. She is cold because so many people have let her down( i'm ashamed that i'm barely human
    And i'm ashamed that
    I don't have a heart you can break
    I'm just action and at other times reaction)
    She doesn't want to go home and face gale either. (don't take me home
    I can't face that yet)

    They also realize they are just hurting the people around them and have become cold by protecting themselves and putting up walls.

    Someone coming to terms with who they are and have become, maybe they thought the path they were on was the right one but they start to reflect and realize its not who they should be
