Was I just your surrogate? Was I your revenge? I... Have... No regrets... Yet I... Have... No regrets...
You'll wish we never took this ride... You made me do this, you made me do this, you made me I wish I was afraid of suicide, Long ago before I died We should never be this high I wish I was afraid of suicide
Once was I... Made of glass, Long ago, before I cracked... Once was I... Made of glass, Long ago... Before I cracked... You made me do this
I just can't forget The blood, The stitches, The bite marks, The kisses, The glass memories reflecting back The suffocating block, Ill milk of regret Just smile and breathe, Dad we never mattered it anyway Smile and breathe, Dad we never mattered anyway
You'll wish we never took this..
I'm starving, I'm starving... I'm starving for affection Your heart is made of ash And you were just a face to me, A sacrificial lamb Rejection, Revenge Deception, Dimense I might be going down in flames,
But you will burn with me You'll wish we never took this ride
I just can't forget The blood, The stitches, The bite marks, The kisses, The glass memories reflecting back The suffocating black, I'll milk of regret Just smile and breathe, Tell them, we never mattered anyway
...No one will know
This is the perfect place To hide the crime and burn the remains... I was so naive I refused to feed Waiting for you to notice me I was so naive I refused to feed Waiting for you...
Like a lovesick anorexic
I just can't forget The love you twisted The lies you enlisted The killers quietly beat me down I hope you drown in this shit milk or regret I won't fucking forget!
I hope you drown while you're world is burning down I hope you drown while you're world is burning down
...The whole world is burning ...Your whole world is burning ...Your whole world is burning ...Your whole world is burning down

Jeffrey from Rosemead, CaCould this song express regret for liking some part of the early abuse (as lotheful it is to me) and then reflecting that confusing irony of innocense stolen and the depths of exploration? A tragedy for sure , but she manages to make a kick ass song to battle its poisons... this surely sets you more free from the abyss.
Mike from Evansville, InShe did indeed write this about what her father put her through as a child. Although, like most music, people can interpret it different ways and most of its content could also easily be applied to any domestic abuse one has suffered, whether it be at the hands of a drug-addicted parent or a psycho ex. Nonetheless, this is a truly great song. Very powerful and expressive. I cannot relate to it myself but it gives me deeper empathy for people who can.
Chris from Philadelphia, PaThere is no way this is about an ex boyfriend. Anyone who has ever listened to her music/poetry knows its about her dad.
Filthee from Crackville, CoActually,I do think it's about her dad.
Filthee from Crackville, CoIt may have a little to do with her dad.I always thought it was about her ex girlfriend.
Ana from Monroe, AfghanistanI thought it was about her dad Idk thats just my opinion
