Some lyric analysis:
"I'm sowing the seeds I take for granted" - He gets what he gives based on what he does to other people.
"Caught under wheels roll" - He can't stop abusing or being abused.
"Feed me a cure" - He is asking for help.
The point of the song is, don't abuse unless you can take the abuse, or don't dish out what you can't take. (thanks, Anthony - Wichita, KS, for above 2)
