Steal my sight and then
Fill my mind with foreign words
To keep me wanting
And speak now, child
And chill my heart with all the hurt
And keep me suffering

All these promises
Lectures and bold-faced lies
All these promises
Born of a...

    Honestly this song is so close to home for me now because now i get it. I believe this is about being in some form of a relationship (can either be romantic , family or friends) with a narcissistic sociopath or someone really toxic.

    The first verses is exactly what goes on with the cycle of abuse. They say exactly what you want to hear only to didsaooint you or hurt you even more later. They probably don't know what they're doing, because they're narcissists. They think they're always right. They don't know what they're doing wrong because they're used to everyone compromising to them. And then they sway you back with their charm and again, the right things to say. Next thing you know you're being manipulated and used for their benefit, and it's a codependent relationship. You lost faith and confidence in yourself. You're trapped and you want to leave but you lost so much self esteem that its just so hard to leave. You lose yourself in the process of trying to fix or help another.

    Again. Its so close to home to me so... I interpreted it based on how I felt about the song and how much I could relate. Everyone has their own thoughts about it. Shawn probably went through this pain with a family member or a parent or a girlfriend. Its really sad... I pray everyone can get through that.

    Honestly, this song fan reminds me so much of my abusive ex-husband. I second a previous poster in saying that this song is representative of a very toxic relationship. It reminds me of Stockholm syndrome and the stereotypical domestic cycle of abuse, which is very much so what I experienced with my ex. God, it's sickening, but this song really does help me convey a bit of what I've felt through this whole disaster.

    I'm turn between two interpretations, or maybe a combination of the two:
    1. It's about losing one's innocence, and growing up. Especially the opening lyrics, and the line "You stole my dreams, now all I believe is dead inside". I think it's speaking of having ones faith shaken after facing the reality of death and morality for the first time, as a child, i.e. the loss of a loved one.
    2. Broken trust/a toxic relationship. Maybe the loss of innocence and naivete following broken trust, but still having a need for the bond to that person "take me back, but don't let me be comfortable".

    I really wish I knew what the song was about because I think it's so very beautiful, there's so much emotion in the lyrics, it rings of anguish and heartbreak.

    I believe it to be the aftermath of broken trust. It seems written in a vague manner to leave some speculation, but i get the vibe that its more political in nature and portraying the trust thats destroyed when a person of power promises and promises to get in power then disregards their promises.

    I think it's bout someone who doesn't have faith anymore. Their inner voice inside cannot be counted on because it is a child that's doing his thinking?

    Something about how having faith is childish and stupid and that voice inside is full of shit too and it leaves him empty inside. Definitely something about being left empty by having faith in something good or promises. So now he is the master of disaster because he realizes to count on shitty things instead of the child who has false hope.
