And "See they can trigger me, but they'll never figure me out."

Tone is the attitude a poet (or singer) takes toward their subject. An attitude the singer takes in this song is the feeling of helplessness. The song being called "Irresistable" shows that the singer is literally unable to resist the person who is hurting them. Another example of helplessness is in the line "Like a moth getting trapped in the light by fixation". This reference is to the way, just like a moth to the light, he has no choice and is drawn to her. Another attitude that the singer has in this song is the feeling of depression. An example of this is in the line, "cut me to the bone, nothing left to leave behind". This line shows that he has had everything taken away from him and she doesn't care.

Some poetic techniques used in this song are: Simile - "You ought to keep me concealed just like I was a weapon". This simile helps the reader/listener to realise that he is a bad/dangerous person in this situation. Imagery - "I'm gonna get you to burst just like you were a bubble". This line puts a representation of a picture in the reader/listeners mind of what will happen. Repetition - "another way, another way, another way you hurt me, baby". The singer has chosen to repeat this not only to make it catchy, but also to emphasise she hurt him repeatedly in many different ways. She continues to hurt him over and over. Rhyme Scheme - The rhyme scheme in the first stanza is as follows: A-A-B-B-C-C-D-D. Alliteration - "Try to say live, live and let live" This line has 4 words starting with the letter "l". Assonance - Assonance is a line which has words with the same vowel sound in them. An example in this song is the line "I didn't come for a fight but I will fight til the end". The words "I" and "fight" are both repeated twice giving the "I" sound four times. The words "didn't", "will" and "til" all have the same sound too.

So don't you sit upon the shoreline
And say you're satisfied
Choose to chance the rapids
And dare to dance the tide
This part of the poem is talking about not just sitting there and doing nothing but getting up to do something about making your goal come true. The line "Choose to chance the rapids" to me means that life might not always run smoothly sometimes you get set backs and have to start again. You need to keep following your goal and continue to go with the flow until you get what you want.
