The Sky Under The Sea Lyrics
I tried to settle for the taste of touching glass over the sound of
answering machines, because I love the way your voice
it says it's gonna get back to me someday.

hes in love with someone and has to settle for what he can get. scraps of touch or affection. he gives her hints and signs and even straight up confesses, hoping for her to finally truly see him. he's okay with her using him because of how he feels, because its the only time he can get those scraps. it makes him feel inferior, but he also knows that if he keeps letting her use him then she'll feel okay. he keeps telling himself that he'll get what he wants someday, but he starts to realize that it'll never happen. he starts to wonder if she'll ever see him for who he is, see his feelings, and he realizes that she'll never acknowledge him. but he also knows that he'll let himself die just so he can be with her, he knows that the time he spends with her is the best he's ever had even though it's torture and he knows he'll never have anything more.

no this song is about a guy who knows or likes this girl and she wants to kill herself and he thinks its selfish because she isn't thinking about anyone else in the situation. :(

I think it's about a guy who is so in love with someone he would do anything to be with them. They know this and they use the guy and thats why he introduces them as the selfish machine. I also kinda though maybe it was a guy who loves a someone who doesn't love him back so he becomes a stalker and eventually kills her and also himself, in a perverse sort of "if i can't have you, no one can'.

"This song is about admitting,'i am a selfish machine'. Its about being selfish with love and taking what you want without regret. The selfish machine refers to the animal inside all of us that no one ever wants to admit is there. I consider all of our evil thoughts and desires that we are ashamed of to be perfectly natural. we are all humans no one is prerfet,despite how morally good someone may think he or she is" Vic Fuentes

I believe this song is about a guy who goes crazy when he's in love with this girl but she doesn't feel the same. He calls her and calls her just for the satisfaction of hearing her voice and was totally crazy about her. He eventually loses it and kills both her and himself. "And, baby, you'll be alright as long as I'm not" is like him warning her what he's gonna do. He finds her to be selfish and headless but he's just the same way.

I've always listened to it and thought it was about a girl that screwed around with him when she was single and then he fell in 'Love' with her but she was just using him I've had that happen to me and got hurt but for some reason I always went back and got hurt again but I still let him because I liked this guy I mean even though it was being used it was something right?

Honestly the entire time he's singing this song he really is talking about a guy who is in love with this girl. owever he was "friend zoned", she knows hes in love with her, and she takes advantage of it. She uses him and when he figures it out is when Vic says "Ladies and gentlemen i introduce you to the selfish machine.
I almost made this mistake to my good friend until i realized if i did that it would seriously hurt him.

This song is saying how he thinks that suicide is selfish.
