Album: Louder NowReleased: 2006Charted:
This song is about a failing relationship where the two are still together but feel distanced and somewhat angry. "New head filled up with smoke" probably refers to the phrase of one's head smoking because of anger. "Veins all tangled close" also implies anger. "We lay together, but not too close" means that while they are still together, they have separation because of the fights they have had. The lyric, "I want to bring you down so badly" refers to how the guy wants to end everything with his girlfriend and tell her off completely and break her down emotionally.
Vocalist Adam Lazzara explained the song's meaning to Kerrang!: "I was trying to point out how, even though love can be beautiful, there's also a sadistic side to it too. I didn't think my lyrics were any good at first. Looking back at the situation I was writing about now, I think I hit the nail on the head."
