Open Wounds Lyrics
Wishing I was somewhere else
Taking all your anger out on me, somebody help
I would rather rot alone
Then spend a minute with you
I'm gone, I'm gone
And you can't stop me from falling apart

My wife was sexually molested by her brother when she was young. Shortly after we were married she started having reoccurring nightmares about it. It was at that point she started getting violent with me despite me never hitting back. We are now getting divorced after three long years of the abuse not stopping. I have will always truly love my wife, but today I chose to love myself and my freedom more.

Now I'm not sure if this is accurate, however, I've seen this song as an argument between christ and the devil. It says "how could you hate me when all I ever wanted to be was you, which is the devil saying that he was wanting to be god, which is part of why he was sent to the underworld. And all you ever gave me was open wounds, which is christ talking about the crucifixion. And the part about not giving up and the war ending is him saying that the war for his allegiance to christ or the devil is still going on and he wants it to end.

It's about John's very emotionally abusive father. His father turned emotionally abusive after his mom died of cancer. He's basically saying: " Why do you treat me like this? what have I ever done? Why do you hate me?
