Let’s get the story straight
You were a poison
You flooded through my veins
You left me broken
You tried to make me think
That the blame was all on me
With the pain you put me through
And now I know that it’s not me it’s you
It’s not me it’s...

    As a recovering alcoholic, (sober now for almost 2 years), and a born again Christian, I like these words once you've said no to the addict inside, once recovery started. However, when we were using..when we were in denial, running from God, not able to escape the addiction, we couldn't live a Christ filled life, our choices were awful, our fruit was similar to the world. We now can look back, thanking Jesus for deliverance as the Chainbreaker, and telling that addict no longer active within us, who's trying, and tried, to kill us, it's not me it's you...you caused me to do these stupid things while 'high'.

    I believe this song does have to do with God, but not through John's perspective. I believe it's about how some people go through tough times and in the end they believe they need to blame God for their situation they are in. The song represents someone who believes God causes their problems, and that blindly they follow themselves because they want what they want. For the record I am Christian and a huge skillet fan, and I know John has his faith too. I know they are a Christian band and I believe they are strong followers of Christ. I know that some of their songs they try to make are not about them but about other people going through different situations, and I think this is one of those songs.

    I THINK it is written towards anyone who is a negative influence in your life... after 23 years of marriage, I found out my husband was gay... this song, for ME, is what I play over and over when I start thinking of the pain and depression my situation has put me in! I think you can make it whatever you want! And yes, I also think of the devil when listening to it sometimes - so I think it's a great song, in that you can take it however you want to!!

    skillet is a christian band.. Not religious.. For a christian.. Its not a religion.. Its a relationship.. God did everything for us all we have to do is repent and believe what he said. This song is about the devil and his influence to make everyone think he does exist but at the same time I believe just like scripture it has a second meaning... He compares his father to evil of the devil as well.. Which would make since also

    I'd very much agree with that. I am religious too. And many people interpret most of their songs as religious. Very true. The devil pressures you into thinking it's all your fault. Until you become strong enough to realize that things happen and you went through all that pain for nothing but the guilt you didn't need.

    As skillet is a religious band, I interpret the song as being about the devil and how he tries to depress people and have them think that things that happen in life are caused by karma or the likes when in fact it is the devil causing the problems in his life.

    I think this song is about a guy who is in love with this girl but she never really loved him she was just playing with him and they were dating for awhile but they broke up for reasons and the girl tries to put all the blame on the guy putting him through extreme pain until he realizes that all along it was really her fault and that she had put him through this pain on purpose.

    He has said he got in fights with his father as a child. I think this song was about always fighting with his dad. The song "The Older I Get" was about forgiving his dad for the pain.
