Tattered & Torn Lyrics

Kill Me
Something aches
Bad things slither
My floors are burning down
And I can't find a window

This is medieval
This is cerebral
Suffocated
Melodramatic

Driven to the verge of
I make you my enemy
The nerves you sever
Can serve you better

In the blink of an eye
In the space of a second
Open my wrists
Give me my lessons

(Tearing myself apart) from the things that make me hurt
(Tearing myself apart) from the things that make me hurt
(Tearing myself apart) from the things that make me hurt
(Tearing myself apart) from the things that make me hurt
(Tearing myself apart) from the things that make me hurt
(Tearing myself apart) from the things that make me hurt
(Tearing myself apart) from the things that make me hurt
(Tearing myself apart) from the things that make me hurt

Tattered & Torn Meanings

This song is about a suicidal mate finding his strength to get rid of a strong negative pain. In the first version, he is in at the rock bottom without any hope , no matter how hard he tries to find a window, or a way out, he can't. The second version is about the description of this emotionally negative thought and its intensity. The third version is about the suicide act attempt... "Driven to the verge of..." then this sentence is suddenly interrupted by somebody else that came up in his mind, the person who driven him to feel all this emotional suffering. Then, from here to the end of the song is about overcome this suicidal condition. In the fourth version is about the acceptance of the pain as a weapon and strength and use it against this emotional enemy. He realizes he needs to be strong, the pain makes him stronger even if somebody open his wrists. The final verse is about the recovery, getting rid of all kind of suffering as if he is tearing all shitty parts apart from him.

A different tone, in this overall bizarre and first seen (at least back then) album. Ιntroverted and self-destructive lyrics, down tempo creepy sounds. This one has to do with one hurting himself, to ease the pain. Mentally or physically.
