    From what I can tell, it's about dealing with either addiction or another psychological problem. "come on in, take a seat, tell me how you feel this week" sounds like it is referring to someone going to their weekly appointment with their therapist. "all these feelings left around you, hold you down so you can't break through" is pretty self explanatory; they need to break free from their problem, but their emotions are holding them back. "it's a trap, so son't ask" could be their inner self telling them not to seek help (i have that problem, as do most people I know who have problems. "it don't burn, it don't bleed, still it cuts you at the knees" could be talking about how it can keep them from doing something they want or from reaching their full potential, even though there's nothing outside of themself getting in the way. "i made you, dressed and trained you" could be taking about how a problem like this can really change how they are. Depending on what the problem is, it can make you paranoid, it can make you afraid of just about everything, you could start to avoid something you used to love because it could trigger something, you could start ignoring friends and family, you could become angry, you could start stealing or doing other illegal things, ect. "you can't kill me with kindness, you know i don't buy it" could be taking about how people try to help the person, but nothing seems to work.
