Breath Lyrics - Breaking Benjamin

Review The Song (81)



I see nothing in your eyes,
And the more I see the less I like
Is it over yet?
In my head?

I know nothing of your kind,
And I won't reveal your evil mind
Is it over yet?
I can't win

So sacrifice yourself
And let me have what's left
I know that I can find
A fire in your eyes
I'm going all the way
Get away, please

You take the breath right out of me
You left a hole where my heart should be
sponsored links
You've gotta fight just to make it through
Cause I will be the death of you

This will be all over soon,
(This will be all over soon),
Pour the salt into the open wound
Is it over yet?
Let me in

So sacrifice yourself
And let me have what's left
I know that I can find
A fire in your eyes
I'm going all the way
Get away, please

You take the breath right out of me
You left a hole where my heart should be
You've gotta fight just to make it through
Cause I will be the death of you

(tick tick tick)

I'm waiting
I'm praying
Realize
Start hating

You take the breath right out of me
You left a hole where my heart should be
You've gotta fight just to make it through
Cause I will be the death of you

Different people, different meanings | Reviewer: Jaz | 10/19/12

I just have to laugh at everyone here fighting over the real meaning of a song or music in general when everyone is different so there will be different meanings and sometimes there will be none at all.

A song doesn't help me through anything but it might help others. Music is entertainment FOR ME. It brightens my day when I listen to it but that's all.

This song is great but it means nothing to me. The lyrics are all over the place, makes no sense but that could be because I don't care.


this is a site for reviews | Reviewer: chris | 10/11/12

lauren, it souds like you may be adding allot of lies to all your comments to gain sympathy. You say youre as mature as anc mentally cabable as an 18 year old? Well act like and stop throwing empty threats at people over the internet. On a more relatec topic, this is a fantastic song that is packed with raw emotion.

Joseph.... | Reviewer: Lauren | 10/6/11

Joseph was most likely expecting this coming from my "ego", but truth is, that in it self messes with people. Anyways, i feel pity for you joseph. Through hate we "love". I MOST DEFFINATELY DON'T LOVE YOU, but your not on my bad side anymore. I don't hate, nor do i love anyone but my boyfriend. But i can assume an artificial profile. So i can lie, for those who didn't understand. I'm an underhanded, super genious, sneaky, abused emo kid. I am who i am from the abuse. Abuse that has made me stronger and more secretive. I have so many things to hide. And hiding them, makes me more confident. I could be insecure, or i could just be your deffinition of "bully". But i'm this way thanks to my mom. I couldn't have done this all on my own. At least not the beggining of it. I am not proud that i used to go to a therapist, but my mom's abuse caused it. I don't want you to have a huge opinion of me, as a blamer. But think, i would scream things like, "is this what a parent does?" or, "i thought you loved me!" That's more of what an unruly teenager says, but i was 6. I don't do that. I'm in more control than most severely abused kids with adhd. I've got scars that people think hide my weaknesses. But really, what are they? Being nice to me is great, and then when you mess with me and hurt me, i applaud you. I truly don't have any weaknesses. Unless you can uncover my concious even my boyfriend hasn't found. But it's so obvious it's hard. Way too hard for most. So try me joseph. You want revenge, then try me. Lets see how successful the normal people are against me. I know one person besides myself, that knows my weekness. And that person is the one person i have ever been in love with, besides my current boyfriend. Your just wasting your time looking.

Yeah I'm Back Again | Reviewer: Lauren | 9/29/11

No limit to how many times i can post. Joseph, what impact music has on other people, has made you angry and jealous. I was reading some else's review and they're right. You were probably in love and then it fell before your eyes. But you can't say "music is entertainment", especially when people live by it. I don't know how you don't realize music's meaning, but i take pity on you now because your missing a chunk of life. Music helps people feel and react. It sets a mood and sets people's lives ahead of them. It can also heal Joseph. I know all of this from an experiance. Just understand, your life is incomplete. Your life is incomplete, and you're blind to one of the best things for people. Hurt or not, music has a purpose to all. Chances are, you also posted that for attention. I'm betting you did. I'm not saying i've never done that, but i'm whole and complete. Music is leading ,e to Julliard. And i'm also going to be a critic.This is me at 11, i can only imagine my writing abilities in 10 years. So don't tell me people don't earn things from music. It creates expresion and inspires it. I don't have a clue where the human race would be without music. Some of the best people are our artists, and that includes people in the music world. "Artists are the best of people" my mom says. They are also themost beloved and charished people of this world. So don't down play us, because we always break through. Because music exercises the most subjects in school (it's proven knowledge), the people are highly intelligent. What music and band have brought me, is joy.... and how to play mind games. I can't fully explain it, but i'm one of the best of the best in this posistion. And you see that with my seperate moods in seerate reviews. I'm gettingbto you and you know it Joseph. So is everyone else posting against you. Your going to change your mind and post you were wrong and you deliberatly posted that. Then your going to be well hated. I'm pretty good at predictions, and my

Victor's Comment On Being To Young | Reviewer: Lauren | 9/29/11

Actually that's quite possible. I'm 11 which is pretty young, but i have a super genious brain. I'm ahead of myself by 7 years. I have the brain of an 18 year old in college.My boyfriend didn't understand what it was and he's 13 almost14. Age difference there, i know. But i love him to death. Anyways, the average mind of a pre teen or younger, don't understand what it is. My attatchment to music is, it's one of the very, very few things that can stimulate me. Which is why, i'm so addicted. Excuse the pun, but i feel so in tune with music. It calms me down and gets me going. It does more for me than my mom. You can see that with old reviews. People have to understand, age does matter here. People don't realize, a select few kids out hundreds, know it's meaning. Joseph is an instagator and your letting him get on your nerves, and then your allowing built up nerves to go to Victor. I know how both a male and female's brain works. I'm a tom boy, i understand a little more. Victor doesn't mean to insult, he's just proving a point. A point that CAN be proven and falsed. Because chances are, Joseph's older than me. Some of the younger people in this world truly do understand more. But most don't. Joseph might also be an attention whoar. He wants the spotlight on him, no matter how much people hate his review or like it. He thinks it has to revolve around him. As a child he might not have been given attention. And the rest of my theories, also can state it's not his fault. It's his past that can be blamed. But he's abusing that. No joseph, this isn't my horrifying mind game for you. It gets worse.

Continued | Reviewer: Lauren | 9/29/11

And my new prediction is, your not gonna post anything after reading everyone else's and mine. Don't think i don't know that posting's wasting my time cause you won't answer. But i want to see people's words bring you up to date, without actually seeing it. I want you justified, and i want it done right. So don't try me. Because we all know, my words are like an injection you couldn't have and didn't want. Well you'll deal, cause i'm just getting started. I'm wondering your opinion of me. Most likely this 11 year old thinks she's so smart, well truth is i am. My title for my DESCRIPTION of how my mind takes things, is unstimulatable. But my TITLE is demonic child. I got that from a therapist when my mom abused me and my reactions were severe words. Not cuss words, but words of a teenager. I was 6 when i got that. I'm now demonic preteen because of my mind games. So lets see. I'm overly intelligent and the master of intellectual break throughs. My title isn't really as bad as it sounds. It just proves my mind works ahead. My therapist when i still went 5 years ago, told me the name wasn't really fitting. I'm more of a "mentalist". I get into your head and screw with you. And i was still 6 then. Think of how much worse that got. I have notebooks that show me who i trust. I write a cover with stuff like stay out or else. Then they open it and get absorbed. But at the beginning i tell them whole point of the notebook, but they won't realize it. And then theyread the entire thing, find out the purpose and get pissed. Its ironic how all the answers are there but people are blind, just like you Joseph. I'll have to determine my skill to use on you later. But trust me, the longer it takes me to think, the worse it is.

Victor Knows What He's Saying | Reviewer: Lauren | 9/24/11

Joseph, read the bottom of Victor's last post. I know if i knew you, you'd be pretty scared. There's a lot of things i could say to you, but i'm going to be calm. I am most likely younger, but i have a vast knowledge of multiple things. Apparently your a dumb ass without a life. I'm betting you are very dependant to the people in your life. Maybe you live with your mom and she pissed you off when you wrote that. I don't know, but i do know your an idiot and you've pissed people off. Being 11 doesn't mean i can't come up with stuff like this. If really did know you, you wouldn't want to talk to me. Now back off.

From breaking broken | Reviewer: Lauren | 9/23/11

Well they actually just broke up. If you want my thoughts go to the review page for their album, "Phobia". So this song has to be symbolic for something. MY opinion, is, this is a song about a couple. The guy was so absorbed with her at first, that he didn't see what she was doing. And when he realizes he warns her. "Cause i will be the death of you." There's so much i can say about this song, but my views are ahead of my age. I'm only 11 and i have the brain of an 18 year old. I have a hard-to-stimulate brain. Music helps though. So that's where I'll leave you.

EXCUSE YOURSELF FOR BEING A DICK JOSEPH! | Reviewer: Lauren | 9/24/11

You know, music isn't just entertainment. You obviously are a blind asshole Joseph, cause i feel a lot through music. I am not in a good place of my life and one of my reviews for My Chemical Romance, pointed it out. Just go to the black parade, not the album. You don't understand what music is. I live by it everyday. I hide behind it too. Try living my life and then reading your review. You should shut your mouth and think about it. It can be cheesy to write how you relate (i mean no offense to anyone), but it makes people feel better. I'm ELEVEN and i know what music is about. It helps me through a lot. And it hurts when people say stuff like you did. At first my boyfriend didn't know the meaning of music, but once i explained and showed him around these reviews, he grasped the concept. He knew what it was without realizing it. We both play trumpet, and we sing like hell when we hang out. You just need someone in your life to set you straight.

Connections | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/17/11

This song is also a wonderful theme song for the "Legacy of the Force" Star Wars books. No spoilers, but if you put this in the context of betraying a loved one (like a sibling) then this works perfectly.

Revenge Song | Reviewer: anti | 1/27/11

I got a crush with a new guy in my office. Unfortunately, he was overvalue himself and thought that he was the most handsome guy in my office. Suddenly, I began dislike and disrespect him. I guess, this song quite represent how I felt.

But I do a big fans of Breaking Benjamin.


AMAZING | Reviewer: Super S | 3/12/10

breath totaly reminds me of you kyle. but i think breaking benjamin is really kick ass and awesome!! but klye, you did take the breath right out of me, and you did leave a hole where my heart should be....but i still love you.

Potential..again | Reviewer: Zak Frisch | 2/27/10

Breaking Benjamin has always had such great potential... but their lyrics are really, really lacking. Most of their songs are almost incomprehensibly mashed together just so that the end of every line rhymes. That and the songwriter's vocabulary is apparently incredibly small. And I KNOW, songs don't have to be wordy and are allowed to be abstract. But when I write the line "I fall into a shallow grave, just to see that the sky is made, holding back my angry flames" does that really seem all that amazing? Breaking Benjamin seems more like a hit and miss type of band, their hits are decent to listen to, but a lot of their songs are just crud. They have good musicians, it's just I don't care how unusual your voice is when you constantly spew out meaningless rhymes for the sake of adding another song to your repertoire.

Like I said, they do have potential, but they definitely need a better lyricist.

This song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/8/10

every time I get depressed with my girl I listen to this song and i shed. only she's not the one fuckin up it's me.
in my views of this song in my eyes is about young love. Being young and having so much ahead of you but having somebody that loves you so much, and loving so much in return. A confused love where the closer you get with somebody, the more you want them away. It's actually common with a lot of relationships, you get too far in and you absolutely love it, but at the same time not. I think this is a song about a cheater, and he is trying to redeem himself really hard because he knows what he has but he can't accept it. He want's all of her trust again so bad, she loves him so much, he fucks her over, she still loves him so much, but she is sick over what happened. But he knows deep down she is the one, and you gotta fight just to make it through the hurt. Is it over yet? I can't win. this beautiful girls gunna be hurt for a long time whether you like it or not. This will be all over soon, pour the salt into the open wound, is it over yet? let me back in baby. Don't keep secrets from good girlfriends yo. if ur gunna cheat and lie be single. because cheating and lying only makes things worse, then you hate what she becomes because you hurt her so bad that she becomes a little nutty about the obvious. "Why did you do it?" and you don't have an answer because you honestly don't know why. Songs probly bout a confused as fuck relationship. but in the song i don't know if it ends good or bad. but in my personal case im changin everything round and being a good dude to my girl from now on.

Breath! | Reviewer: Michael | 1/29/10

I love that songs have different effects on people, that everyone can relate to a song in a special way. I've always wanted to know what the writer meant with this song, what he were thinking while he wrote it.
I have my own way of looking at it, and it's fun to read others opinion on the song.

I look at it more like a conversation between two people.
I know that's kind of weird, but that's how I see it.

When he sings " I see nothing in your eyes,And the more I see the less I like" He looks at her, and he sees nothing there, just emptyness. She's hurt and wounded, so there's nothing left in her, she has nothing to give. Maybe she loves him too, but she scared of opening up to him, or she's so badly hurt and she know that she can't make him happy, so she just wants him to stop talking cause it's hurting her, so she says "Is it over yet?
In my head?" she just wants him to give her up, cause she's just an empty shell, but he keeps fighting. "I know nothing of your kind,
And I won't reveal your evil mind" He's never seen anyone like her before, or meet anyone like her, and he know things about her that no one else knows, her life experience that's tearing her down, but he won't reveal it. And she just says again. ''Is it over yet? I can't win" And she can't win, cause she know's she can't make him happy.

The vers is from him to her. "So sacrifice yourself and let me have what's left.I know that I can find A fire in your eyes. I'm going all the way!"
He want her to sacrifice herself and give him what's left of her, he loves her, and he knows she wounded, but he want's the little life that's left in her, he wants to make her better and put a light in her again, so he's going to fight for her. She just says "Get away, please" She don't want him to try, cause she's afraid that he'll not like what's she become.
" You take the breath right out of me, you left a hole where my heart should be" She has his heart, so there's just a hole where is heart should be, and only she can fix this. but she can't so she just says: "You've gotta fight just to make it through, Cause I will be the death of you" She knows that in the end he will suffer more than he already do, she will be the death of him. So she tells him that "This will be all over soon". His heart will mend, and he can move on, but that's not what he want, so she hurts him by saying that. "Pour the salt into the open wound,Is it over yet? Let me in! she pours salt in the wound, and makes it hurt even more, and know he wants it to stop and want her to let him in.
So he's waiting, praying, but then he realize that she won't change her mind, that nothing will happend, and then he starts hating.

I'm waiting
I'm praying
Realize
Start hating
You take the breath right out of me
you left a hole where my heart should be
You've gotta fight just to make it through
Cause I will be the death of you



Love the song. I know it's a weird way of seeing the song.
