Leave My Body Lyrics
I'm gonna be released from behind these lines
And I don't care whether I live or die
And I'm losing blood, I'm gonna leave my bones
And I don't want your heart it leaves me cold
I don't want your future
I don't need your...

I think it's about going to heaven, she's gonna be released from behind these lines and she doesn't care if she lives or does, she is going to leave her lover because he leaves her cold, she doesn't need the birds or clouds, she's moving up to higher ground, or heaven, but she's worried that her actions could sentence her to an eternity of damnation.

I have interpreted it as a song about suicide. Leaving one's own body is a metaphor for killing oneself. Most of the lyrics are clichés that people say when trying to convince the other person that suicide is not the best option, but she denies them. She doesn't want a future and can't stand her own past; She finds both day and night unnecessary; love doesn't captivate her, neither do the little things such as birds. Moving up to higher ground means going to heaven. The very beggining implies that she is already in the process of killing herself, and the echoes in the end are how death feels according to the author's interpretation.
