The No Seatbelt Song Lyrics
And me fresh out of rope,
Please ignore the lisp,
I never meant to sound like this.
So take me and break me,
And make me strong like you,
I'll be forever grateful to, this and you.
It's only you,...

The relationship is winding away and the guy is becoming desperate because he can't accept this. Even though they are still together, he loves her more than she loves him and he really wants to fix the problems in the relationship. He is crying out for her to let him fix everything and for her to love him.

This song is about how he wants to be close to god and hang onto his faith in god.
"So take me and break me
And make me strong like you
I'll be FOREVER grateful to this and you" - please forgive me god and i'll be forever thanful
"Fix me to a chain around your neck
And wear me like a nickel" - Don't let go of me god
"Even new wine served in old skins cheapens the taste" - Mark 2:21 “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. Otherwise, the new piece will pull away from the old, making the tear worse. 22 And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.”

It's probably not about God but it reminds me of how I feel when I come crawling to God on my hands and knees, bloody and battered.
"I shot the pilot, now I'm begging you to fly this for me.
I'm here for you to use, broken and bruised.
Do you understand?
It's only you, beautiful.
Or don't want anyone.
If I can choose, it's only you."
I shot the pilot - Self must die, now begging God to manage my life, that I'm here for Him to use, even though I'm broken and bruised. It's only you Jesus. I don't want anyone. If I can choose, it's only you.

I think It's about a girl dumping him and what he's thinking at the time, he's whole life has just crashed down around him and he has no idea what to do. He's begging her not to do this but realises that nothing he can do will change her mind "So fine, I'll leave".

I think this song is about a claustraphobic, perhaps even abusive relationship.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
This song talks about
-how he loves her
(Its only you, beautiful, I don't want anyone, if I can choose, its only you)
-he always wants to be with her
(Fix me to a chain around your neck, and wear me like a nickel)
-how he wants her to love him, or even just use him
(I'm here for you to use, broken and bruised)
