Silverstein: Massachusetts Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2013
Forgetting her excuses for being here again
With a suitcase packed and waiting by the door
In her head
Convinced herself she hasn't lost
Enough to quit
But tonight she lays here thinking
What if I just...

At face value it is clearly a song about a woman in an physically and emotionally abusive relationship with a man who constantly apologises after hurting her. Although she wants to leave she is still telling herself that maybe things will improve if she just stays a little longer, each time. She thinks about what it would be like if she just cut all emotional ties and simply left although she never does.
On a deeper level though, it could be a metaphor for a point in one's life when one decides that maybe they should start something new or stop repeating something that is obviously causing negative effects on themselves even though they've gotten so used to it that they keep finding reasons not to change.

To me this song is about a girl who is in an abusive relationship where both her and the man are addicted to drugs (most likely heroin) the bruses could be a result of IV drug use or abuse from the man. The only reason I believe that she is a user as well, comes from the part of the song that states "she'll fantasize about it every single day".
It's a very well written song, that alot of people would be able to relate to it. It personally helped me to overcome my addiction to heroin and other bad habits.

To me this song indefinitely is a women trying to leave an abusive relationship. It's deep and the worst part is when you can relate. Definitely enjoy the acoustic version a little more ❣
