Metabolic Lyrics

Gone - I couldn't murder your promise
Right before my eyes
The revolutions of my psychosis
Kept me outta the way

Once - inside - all I hold is ash...

Fail - suppressing every feeling
I'm in so much pain
I have every fuckin' right to...

    In metabolic, corey is trying to get across that he isn't perfect. This song is a little phsycotic because with the quote - "the hardest part was knowing that I could never be you" he is saying he knew he wanted to be like his father but he was to imperfect to fill his shoes.

    The quote "my demise - I took a life worth living and made it worth a mockery" is powerful because he took his life, which was in the begining worth living, and he screwed up so much, he turned it into shit.

    The quote "I wanna dress in your insecurities and be the perfect you" means, I wanna wear your flaws, and be the ultimate you. The perfect man. But it won't happen because I am to imperfect.

    The quote "here we go - the ultimate irony " is that he wanted to be his father but now he is no-where, and he is known by so many, he is important, and his father still hasn't changed. You're in the same place you've always been. The irony factor is if he chose to be exactly like him, he'd be know where I would be too. So, his shitty life, and the shit I was forced to go through, has turned out to be worth it in the end.

    To support what I said above I will capitalize the parts that seem to hint at this meaning this.

    Gone - I couldn't murder your promise
    Right before my eyes
    THE REVOLUTIONS OF MY PSYCHOSIS
    KEPT ME OUTTA' THE WAY
    Once - inside - all I hold is ash...

    Fail - suppressing every feeling
    I'm in so much pain
    I HASVE EVERY RIGHT TO HATE YOU -
    I CAN'T TAKE IT!

    THE HARDEST PART WAS KNOW - I COULD NEVER BE YOU
    NOW ALL I DO IS SIT AROUND AND WISH I COULD FORGET YOU

    My demise - I took a life worth living and
    Made it worth a mockery
    I deny - I fold, but they keep on coming
    (Stop) I'm always ready to die
    But you're killing me

    WHO ARE YOU TO ME? WHO AM I TO YOU?
    IS THIS A LESSON IN NEPOTISTIC NEGLIGENCE!?
    BY DEFAULT YOU WERE MY ONLY LINK TO THE OUTSIDE
    PSYCHOSOMATIC SUICIDE!
    WHERE WERE WHEN I WAS DOWN?
    CAN YOU SHOW ME A WAY -
    TO FACE EVERYDAY WITH THIS FACE - GOODBYE

    My demise - I took a life worth living and
    Made it worth a mockery
    I deny - I fold, but they keep on coming
    (Stop) I'm always ready to die
    But you're killing me

    When I blur my eyes, they make the whole
    World breath - I SEE YOU FUCKING ME
    ABD I ANM ABSOLUTELY - CONTROLLING EVERY URGE TO MUTILATE
    THE ONE AND ONLY ANSWER
    SO MUCH FOR MEMORIES
    I WANNA' DRESS IN YOUR INSECURITIES
    AND BE THE PERFECT YOU - I'M THROUGH
    I'm out-stretched out for all to loathe
    Here we go - the ultimate irony

    Now I might be wrong but I beleive this song is about Corey's dad leaving him. If you look at the lyrics it pointing very heavily at this, but that deosn't explain the chorus.
