This Time Imperfect


I cannot leave here, I cannot stay, Forever haunted, more than afraid. Asphyxiate on words I would say, I'm drawn to a blackened sky as I turn blue. There are no flowers, no not this time, There'll be no angels gracing the lines, Just these stark words, I find. I'd show a smile, but i'm too weak, I'd share with you could I only speak, Just how much this, hurts me. I cannot stay here, I cannot leave, Just like all I loved, I make believe. Imagine heart, I disappear, seems, No one will appear, here and make me real. There are no flowers, no not this time, There'll be no angels gracing the lines, Just these stark words, I find. I'd show a smile, but i'm too weak, I'd share with you could I only speak, Just how much this, hurts me. I'd tell you how it haunts me, I'd tell you how it haunts me, (cuts through my day, and sinks into my dreams.) I'd tell you how it haunts me, (cuts through my day, and sinks into my dreams.) You don't care that it haunts me. Oh, There are no flowers, no not this time, There'll be no angels gracing the lines, Just these stark words, I find. I'd show a smile, but i'm too weak, I'd share with you could I only speak, Just how much this, hurts me. Just how much this, hurts me. Just how much you...

Deep deep song, most don't understand the meaning to. It begins with "I cannot leave here I cannot stay, forever haunted more than afraid. Asphyxiate on words I would say, i'm drawn to a blackened sky as I turn blue." I tihnk this symbolizes him in a relationship in which his significant other had died. He is choking on what he wants to say to express his sorrys, and can't say them. Thus turning Blue and being drawn to a blackened sky which symbolizes him in a really hurt state. The chorus is "There are no flowers, no not this time, there'll be no angels gracing the lines, just these dark words I find. I'd show a smile, but i'm too weak, i'd share with you could I only speak just how much this hurts me." He is now mourning over her death, explaining he cannot offer flowers to fix it, and that the Angels aren't going to come for him next any time soon. Now once again, he's talking to God about how much he's hurt over the loss, saying that he can't even speak, he's weak, and deeply hurt God took her. The song then proceeds to talk about how he no longer feels real anymore, and how he is make believe in the eyes of God. And then wishes his lost one would appear and make him real. Then the chorus hits again. Same meaning. He then talks to God about how much the loss Haunts him by cutting into his day and sinking into his dreams, and proceeds to say God doesn't care he's haunted all. Then once again the chorus. But it ends with "Just how much you." Once again directed toward God hurting him. This song can have 2 meanings, a 1 on 1 bad relationship and Davey singing to her. Or a 1 on 1 death relationship and Davey singing to God. Either way works.

Its about death...I used to think its about war but its about being murdered. He says he cannot stay and he cannot leave. He cant stay because his soul will leave he stays because his body will stay....he also to weak to smile or speak and is hurt the end kinda hurts that he knew whoever murdered him....I think its more like emotionally murdered but like always my meaning are theories and shouldn't be taken serious.
