    I believe the song is about a person who's going through rough times (either drug related or depression, it's kind of a *insert problem here* sorta song). The person wants to get better and back to the person he used to be, and despite how much others help, he just can't seem to get better. The song mostly harps on the bad habit(s) or problem(s) you just can't get rid of no matter how much you try (hence the song name atrophy, you're staying the same instead of getting better).

    I feel that this song is about a person that is in shock at first (from some sort of atrophy diagnosis) and tried to take their life (time you bled) and is spiraling through depression, which is why he states to "return to days... " then they go to a hospital and they give them everything they need to live for a while, but their memory is cloudy due to the medicine. Then the person telling the story is in love with this person and begging for them to come back at the end and knows that no amount of money they gives to the hospital can bring this person back to them.
