It's so depressing how you wag your tounge
And name with words as you please
I'm second guessing you're the chosen one
Think you can cure my disease

You wear out and lay claim to my mind
Get out, I'm begging you, please!

You're so excited to breathe
You've got me on my knees
Betray desire for need
But I'm giving up
Yeah, I'm giving up

As a confession you reach for your gun
And cry a hole in my sleeve
It's over-rated kissing you for fun
Now all I taste is the sleaze

You wear out and lay claim to my mind
Get out, I'm begging you, please!

You're so excited to breathe
You've got me on my knees
Betray desire for need
But I'm giving up
Yeah, I'm giving up
You're so excited to breathe
You've got me on my knees
Betray desire for need
But I'm giving up
Yeah, I'm giving up

You've got me right where you want me
You've got me feeling so small
You've got me right where you want me
But... but I will deliver myself!

But I will deliver myself!

You wear out and lay claim to my mind
Get out, I'm begging you, please!

You're so excited to breathe
You've got me on my knees
Betray desire for need
But I'm giving up
Yeah, I'm giving up
You're so excited to breathe
You've got me on my knees
Betray desire for need
But I'm giving up
Yeah, I'm giving up

But I will deliver myself!

    To me this song means that you want them to need and want you but they just keep stabbing you in the back and finally you just say im done. I dont need you anymore.

    I think it's when you are so in love with someone that they start taking over all you are ... And when you start seeing who they really are you just want to get out but you love them so much that you can't get rid of the mere thought of them... Even if it is getting you so down you can't help it ...

    The one that you think you desperately need turns out to be only using you. Thats how i hear it personally
