I should've seen all the signs all around me
But I was comfortable inside these wounds
So go ahead and take another piece of me now
While we all bow down to you

You tear me down and then you pick me up
You take it all and still it's not enough
You try to tell me you can heal me
But I'm still bleeding
And you will be the death of me

How can you help my affliction
If you're the sickness and not the cure
Too long I've faked this addiction
Another sacrifice to make us pure

You tear me down and then you pick me up
You take it all and still it's not enough
You try to tell me you can heal me
But I'm still bleeding
And you will be the death of me

You tear me down and then you pick me up
You take it all and still it's not enough
You try to tell me you can heal me
But I'm still bleeding
And you will be the death of me

I won't forget
I cannot forget this
I won't forget
I'll never forget this [x4]

I know I can never prove this illusion
You aren't the one that I thought you were
And so I learned to embrace this delusion
The line that separates us starts to blur

You tear me down and then you pick me up
You take it all and still it's not enough
You try to tell me you can heal me
But I'm still bleeding
And you will be the death of me
And you will be the death of me

I won't forget
I cannot forget this
And you will be the death of me

    He is talking about how we all have two sides to us. Our good side, and our bad or sinful side. No matter how hard we try, we can't keep our sinful side held back. Unless we ask for God's help, it really will be the death of us. Great Song ^.^

    Red is not a fraud, the have songs like "hymn for the missing" and a huge amount of religious undertones to their songs, just because jesus isn't in the lyrics every two seconds doesn't mean they aren't christian. They make their music this was to reach people who might not be christian yet, to give them an understanding of our god in a way that means something to them. Not everyone speaks the language of "normal" christian music, some speak the language of rock.

    This is one of my favorite Red songs. He's talking about we all have two sides to ourselves. Our good side and our bad side. Its hard to always be good to do the right thing. In the end it will be the death of you
