Today my past has come alive to eat
All of the guts that I use to just keep my feet
Moving left and right as my legs shake like trees
Oh how i curse the heavens for not taking me

Goddam! This whole mess that's me
I don't trust myself (i'm in way too deep)
And every night i erase the day with the strongest drinks they'll give to me

I awake much to my dismay to find that i'm still staring at the same ceiling
I just wish once that i could get this right
And have the angels from the south take me at night

Goddam! This whole mess that's me
I don't trust myself (i'm in way too deep)
And every night i erase the day with the strongest drinks they'll give to me

All i have is meaningless
And all i found is nothingness
In this self-loathing sickness
(2x)

Goddam! This whole mess that's me
I don't trust myself (I'm in way too deep)
And every night I erase the day with the strongest drinks they'll give to me

And all I have is meaningless
And all I found is nothingness

    This song is clearly about suicide, self-harm and self-loathe in general. I guess the "poetical self", the "narrator" talks about how he wishes for his dead and how much he hates his whole existence.
    The voice tells how he tries pretty much every single night to kill himself but he is unable to do so. Even though most people think suicide is usually achieved at first that is untrue and lots of people every year survive suicide attempts. In the song, just like in real life, the suicidal person feels even worse when he discovers he is not dead.
    Overall, the lyrics are quite dark and depressive but it is a song extremely relatable by people who are considering or have tried killing themselves. Not a song to cheer you up but a song to see you are not alone even in such extreme situation.
