I've got a candle,
And I've got a spoon
I live in a hallway with no doors and no rooms
Under the windowsill they all were found
A touch of concrete within the doorway
Without a sound

Someone save me if you will
And take away all these pills
And please just save me, if you can
From my blasphemy in my wasteland

How did I get here
And what went wrong
Couldn't handle forgiveness
Now I'm far beyond gone
And I can hardly remember the look of my own eyes
How could I love this
A life so dishonest
It made me compromise


Someone save me if you will
And take away all these pills
And please just save me, if you can
From my blasphemy in my wasteland

Jump in the water
Jump in with me
Jump on the altar
Lay down with me
My hardest question to answer is why

Someone save me if you will
And take away all these pills
And please just save me, if you can
From my blasphemy in my wasteland

Someone save me
Someone save me
Somebody save me
Somebody save me
Please don't erase me

    this dude wants someone to save him, because he cannot save himself. he wants to stop and become pure and "wash away his sins" so to speak. he knows that he cant do it by himself so he's askin' for help and for someone so save him from himself.

    The person is reaching out for help he knows hes drowning and cant save himself. its way bigger than he is yet he is still aware that it aint right. He wants badley to break away someone reach for him before he drowns.
