The Leaving Song


Walked away, heard them say "Poison hearts will never change, walk away again" Turned away in disgrace Felt the chill upon my face cooling from within. It's hard to notice gleaming from the sky When you're staring at the cracks. It's hard to notice what is passing by with eyes lowered. You... walked away, heard them say "Poisoned hearts will never change, walk away again" All the cracks, they lead right to me. And all the cracks will crawl right through me. All the cracks, they lead right to me. And all the cracks will crawl right through me, and I fell apart. As I... walked away, heard them say "Poisoned hearts will never change" Walked away again. Turned away in disgrace. Felt the chill upon my face cooling from within.

Leaving song is about being different and being tormented for it.

Ok yes, I think part I is about being tormented about being different, and when different, everything being your fault. This is proven with "All the cracks they lead right to me, and all the crack will crawl right through me." That's basically the proof right there, that everything's his fault, because he's different.

I read your meanings of this song, but I have to disagree to the point. I don't think that this has as much to do with external forces as you think. I think that this is an inner struggle, one that has gone on long enough to "cool from within". To be cold to the looks of others and to be unfeeling about your own outlook. "All the cracks" - The problems in my life lead directly to me, I am the cause of my own problems. I know this but I will still turn others away, even if they are trying to help.. Keeping your head lowered and not facing your fears because you have locked them all up into a place where feelings don't matter anymore. It's about knowing your own problems, but shutting them up and turning from others even those who are trying to help.
