Where should I start
Disjointed heart
I've got no commitment
To my own flesh and blood
Left all alone
Far from my home
No one to hear me, to heal my ill heart, I

Keep it locked up inside

Cannot express
To the point I've regressed
If...

    Where should I start
    Disjointed heart
    I've got no commitment
    To my own flesh and blood
    Left all alone
    Far from my home
    No one to hear me, to heal my ill heart
    --------------
    ~~The writer of the song has been far from his loved ones, being on the road, and is feeling quite homesick, but can't do anything about it since he's on tour and cannot go back to the ones he loved, so as the chorus goes, he keeps his emotion (angst, hate, regret) locked up inside.
    --------------
    Cannot express
    To the point I've regressed
    If anger's a gift, then I guess I've been blessed
    --------------
    ~~As a result of the writers internalization of his feelings, he has a lot of anger (with himself, with the situation..etc)
    --------------
    It's too late to love me now
    You helped me to show me
    It's too late to love me now
    You don't even know me
    --------------
    ~~Once the writer reached fame and fortune, acquaintances came out of the woodworks to feed off his money (kind of like when someone wins the Power-ball). As a result, the writer lashes out at the fair-weather friends or distant family, saying that "It's too late to love me now" since when he was a nobody, the people didn't care or want to get to know him.
    --------------
    Breaking a part of my heart to find release
    Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace
    Breaking a part of my heart to find release
    Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace
    --------------
    ~~The writer is torn between having to break ties with people he once cared about (e.g: his mother, father, girlfriend, best friend) and has come to the realization that the only way to "find peace" and end his anger and regret is to dissociate with the people who are only seeking monetary gratification from him and not genuine friendship/love. (In addition, the phrase "Break" "Me" "Too" is used after each phrase and may suggest that breaking the ties hurts him emotionally as well.
    --------------
    Keep it locked up inside
    Keep my distance from your lies
    --------------
    ~~The writer is still distancing himself from the non-genuine relationships and as a result, his anger is bottled up and cannot be released
    --------------
    Spit drips from the jaw of the witless witness
    Cryptic colloquialism shifts your midrift
    Dark all I do embark the shadows
    Involved with my thought catalog, analogue, rap catalog
    Keep my distance, and fear resistance, hurt by persistance
    The twisted web of tangled lies
    Strangles my hope to waste and numbs the taste
    And I'm forced to face these hate crimes
    Against the state of being
    Feeling the weight-less-ness pressed between the ceiling
    Reeling around room
    Riding a bubble of sound proof
    It's the frequency making you
    Sha-Shake with every boom
    Involuntary muscle contraction
    Ignoring and drinking musical gas fueled euphoria
    The sound pounds to make the dead flush
    To have you a head rush with red thoughts and said stuff
    --------------
    ~~The writer explains what his career has been like after cutting ties with his fair-weather friends.

    As a way to cope with the loneliness of being a star, he has concentrated hard on writing songs.

    The phrase, "Keep my distance, and fear resistance, hurt by persistence" implies that some of the people he ousted himself from are being relentless in their pursuit of monetary gains (maybe by using the past and lies as a way to work their angle and thus making the writer regret his decision of ousting them in the first place and places doubt that he can further succeed in the music business).

    In the end, the writer hopes that people will enjoy the song and that it will inspire the same emotions that he experienced making the song itself.

    The beginning:
    Where should I start/disjointed heart
    means you're heart was just broken
    and you don't what to do now.
    Left all alone/far from my home.
    means you feel like nobody loves you.
    Its too late too love me now.
    Means that the girl/guy wants you back
    but you won't take them back.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
