Bury all your secrets in my skin
Come away with innocence and leave me with my sins
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage

So if you love me let me go
And run away before I know
My heart is just too dark to care
I can't destroy what isn?t there

Deliver me into my fate
If I'm alone I cannot hate
I don't deserve to have you
Ooh, my smile was taken long ago
If I can change I hope I never know

I still press your letters to my lips
And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss
I couldn't face a life without your lights
But all of that was ripped apart when you refused to

So save your breath, I will not hear
I think I made it very clear
You couldn't hate enough to love
Is that supposed to be enough?

I only wish you weren't my friend
Then I could hurt you in the end
I never claimed to be a saint
Ooh, my own was banished long ago
It took the death of hope to let you go

So break yourself against my stones
And spit your pity in my soul
You never needed any help
You sold me out to save yourself

And I won't listen to your shame
You ran away, you're all the same
Angels lie to keep control
Ooh, my love was punished long ago
If you still care don't ever let me know
If you still care don't ever let me know

Even as stated in an interview with Corey, the lyrics are self explainatory. Its not about drugs (no clue where you get that), but about a relationship. Watch the music video as it portrays a woman of whom he refers to. This song has helped me overcome a similar situation after my love left me after several years, and for no real reason. Only the infamous words of, "we can't be together."

Reminds me of someone I will always love. She may have hurt me more than anyone, but I will always love her

This is what my life would have felt like if my wife had left me, instead of pushing me off meth, and saving my life and my family..... Grow up morons, and realize....

This song makes me think about the guy I was madly in love with. Its sad to know now that he'll never feel the same way and probably never talk to me again..

Oohhhh, another internet coward hiding behind their keyboard. You may have received an education, but you sound pretty insecure to me. Trolling the internet for self worth!!!
