The Amity Affliction – Chasing Ghosts lyrics

Will they remember my name when I'm gone,
(When they know what I did was so fucking wrong)
Put the steel to my wrist, lost the breath in my chest,
(Just to forget all the wrongs I had left)
I took the exit, left my friends in the gutter,
(Left my life right behind me, left myself, left it all)
Left myself, left it all, not a falter, not a stutter
Not a note, and now
(There's nothing at all)

Are you at all haunted by memories past?
Are you ready to make this one breath your last?
Is your chest so heavy you're ready to leave,
Or are you just hoping that someone will grieve?

And now we roll on...
I'm gone now, I don't remember much,
I just know that
I would have been better off if I had stayed, spoken to a friend,
(Let my heart keep on beating and not given it all up)
For the grave, for the grave
There's no one on the other side, there's nothing more than what I had.
(There's no ghost left to haunt you so you know I'm still here)
Just the end of my life, nothing left here at all.
(There's no memories here, just the regrets of the dead)
Please don't follow my footsteps - cherish all you have left.

Are you at all haunted by memories past?
Are you ready to make this one breath your last?
Is your chest so heavy you're ready to leave?
Or are you just hoping that someone will grieve?

There's no one there on the other side,
(There's no one there on the other side)
There's nothing more than what I had.
(There's no ghost left to haunt you)

There's no, there's no memories here
Just the regrets of the dead
Please don't follow in my footsteps
Cherish all you have left.

There's no memories here (memories here)
Just the regrets of the dead (regrets of the dead)
Please don't follow in my footsteps (my footsteps)
Cherish all you have left.

Are you at all haunted by memories past?
Are you ready to make this one breath your last?
Is your chest so heavy you're ready to leave?
Or are you just hoping that someone will grieve?

Are you at all haunted by memories past?
Are you ready to make this one breath your last?
Is your chest so heavy you're ready to leave?
Or are you just hoping that someone will grieve?

    This song is about how this guy thought about how he or someone close to him has thought about taking their life and when he says "there are no memories here just regrets of the dead" he is saying that no one remembers the good times they just remember the life that was taken from them. He says not to follow in his footsteps and to cherish all you have left he is saying don't end your life because people will miss you. He is saying that even though if you end your life you may not be haunted by the "ghosts" of your past and your life but the people will be haunted by your "ghost" because you took away your life.
