Because of You Lyrics

Hands on the mirror, can't get much clearer
Can't make this all go away
Now that you're bleeding you stare at the ceiling
Watch as it all fades away

From what you do, because of you
You know I can't be there
Each time that you call

    I think it might have to do with self harm,reckless behavior,drugs,abortion. All plausible explainations.

    This song is about self harm and the effect it has on not only the person who does it but also the person who has to watch them, and the feelings of frustration they have with either not understanding or not being able to help in anyway.

    This song is about watching your friend/family member/Team mate slowly die after they put themselves in harm's way by committing criminal activity and crime. You want to help but they ignore you repeatedly.
