    Ok this song might be about drugs, but it also might be about a person who Josh is in a relationship with, and he is addicted to her but she is just using him

    This might sting a bit
    Josh is starting to feel hurt in his relationship

    You got in just in time to see everything fall apart
    The relationship started off good but now you can see the cracks

    I'm not upset at all
    He's used to it so he doesn't feel bad for himself

    But it's sad to see that everybody knows that I've been down in here before
    It's one of those relationships where she's being mean so he finally leaves her, then she crawls back saying she needs him, so he feels sorry for her and let's her back in, and so on

    And maybe I could want it more I know I never tried to stop
    He isn't really trying to give her up because he's completely wrapped round her finger

    So what's one more excuse guess I just like the abuse
    He's addicted to her even though she's just using him, so he's making up excuses to stay with her

    Dizzied up in my never try vertigo
    He's stuck with her and he can't get out, and he doesn't really want to either

    They're calling out for blood
    She's just using him and he's giving her everything

    Disappointed and who'd have thought that this would be me and my everything
    Josh never thought his whole life would be wrapped up in one person

    Is this pound of flesh enough
    That's a reference from Shakespeare where Antonio made a deal with Shylock and now has to keep it. Josh has become committed to this girl, and he's keeping up his side of the deal no matter what

    And I will cut away until you say enough
    He will keep on giving her what she wants, and she's being really needy and abusive, but he doesn't care

    And maybe I could listen more
    All Josh's friends and family know she's no good, and he knows he should listen to them

    And then it's just the chorus

    Vertigo is basically about how Josh was addicted to Heroin.
    How at first he liked it and feeling vertigo (Dizzy) felt kinda good at first.
    And how when he did heroin he could hear his heartbeat inside his ears.
