Master of Disaster Lyrics

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...

    I think it's possible the promises refer to what a child should be given by their parents , the love acceptance trust etc.

    Master of Disaster is about someone who causes disaster to others.

    Sorry to hear about your toxic relationship. Be wise and think carefully of the situation. Hope you can be a part of your son's life. I had a longer interpretation but still being reviewed, it would be shown within 48 hours.

    Master of Disaster is about someone who causes bad thoughts and bad feelings for others.

    For the latest comment, sorry to hear about your toxic gf. It seems your ex-gf is living for external pleasures than giving importance to those people who should really matter to her.

    Sad to say, she is sinking and self-destructing herself and others. You still have the right to see your son, you guys didn't marry, and I believe you have the right to be a part of your son's life and he a part of your life.

    Regarding the promises, some people make promises and they are fully aware they broke their promises. I think some people break their promises because they respect the other person, or they were not ready to fulfill it, or it was their quick decision without thinking of the consequences of their actions, etc. True, some are narcissists sociopath, psychopath, manic depressive, multiple personality, bi-polar, schizophrenic, paranoid, etc. That's why we have to be careful with dealing with other people. You'll never know if they have some mental problems unless you know them fully well.

    With your situation, your ex-gf is bisexual. Sorry to hear you only discovered it after getting her pregnant. Listen to your gut when you feel something is off or some red flags are easily seen. Since she showed her true self to you, you should talk to her seriously, and discuss how you can be a part of your son's life and he be a part of your life. You might get some std if you continue to have a loving relationship with her and can you accept her preference of having relationships with both genders? Are you willing to live this kind of lifestyle? Being with her knowing she both dates girls and boys?

    Think carefully of the situation and be wise when it comes to the matters of the heart and mind. If she really loves you she will stop those relationships, but if she continues, you have to be smart and use your mind, and heart.

    This is close to me and my situation.
    I see it as your in a toxic relationship. She builds you up only to put you down.

    I'm actually going through it now as I type.

    My pregnant girlfriend left me because she said she was lesbian. We broke up in February and it's now July. Already she's been with 5 girls. To make matters worse she's dating guys now too. She picked the pleasures of flesh instead of her own family.

    All the while she keeps saying how it's my fault and how I treated her like crap.

    A 4 year long relationship ended. Now she wants to keep my son away from me and take my money.

    I loved her so much. But now I only see the destruction she left in her wake.

    She was full of so many fine promises.
    None were kept.
    She stole my happiness
    Stole my son, it's Sun I know
    Let's me down constantly
    And is driving me literally to the brink of insanity

    And nothing I say will get her to stop.
    Part of me still lives her still, and I want to be a part of my sons life.

    So i let her continue to be the key to my disaster...

    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.
