Senses Fail Choke On This Lyrics

Last updated: 05/15/2011 11:00:00 AM

Half smoked cigarettes and your the trash that infests my sheets
Can't make a wife out of a whore, don't want your skin on me
And you're, you're addicted to the drug of lust
A de-toxing the cold sweat of shame
and I love your pain

I gave you these roses now but I left in the thorns
I'd rather hurt someone than hurt myself
I'll dispose of you like a lighter out of fuel
I'll lose you somewhere on a dusty shelf

So this love's been worn down, like songs on a tape
The sex has lost all of its fun, like gum loses taste
And you're, you're addicted to the drug of lust,
A de-toxing the cold sweat of shame
and I love your pain

I gave you these roses now but I left in the thorns
I'd rather hurt someone than hurt myself
I'll dispose of you like a lighter out of fuel
I'll lose you somewhere on a shelf

I'm here lying in your bed babe
Remember what you said to me
"You can be my James Dean, I'll be your sweet queen"
I said that you were my first, but you weren't even close no
Like a frame in a movie, you're just one of many
Can you grant me one last wish
Play russian roulette as we kiss
I'll be your cheap novelty
Blow your brains out on me
I gave you these roses now but I left in the thorns
I'd rather hurt someone than hurt myself
I'll dispose of you like a lighter out of fuel
I'll lose you somewhere on a shelf

what I interpret | Reviewer: E | 5/13/11

I think when he says "I'd rather hurt someone than hurt myself" he means he'd rather emotionally hurt someone than physically hurt himself trying to make them happy. That makes total sense to me because that's how I feel.



Not rele "emo" | Reviewer: jay | 7/8/09

This song is about what the rest of u have been saying but senses fail always is about how they fucked with the girl and how worthless she is(When its about relationship) instead of most bands who write about how the girl fucked with them...I LOVE SENSES FAIL BEST LYRICS EVER!!!!



i think... | Reviewer: Lily | 6/6/09

Actually, i think the meaning of the song is that at first, he really was in love and tried to make the relationship work. But he realized that to her, it didn't mean anything and that she had cheated on him. He then stayed with her, and used her like she had used him.



yeah | Reviewer: anonymous | 11/10/08

so what i think is that he really cared about her and wanted to stay in the relationship then she completely crushed his soul. so he is now pissed off and instead of blaming himself he is lieing to himself and telling her to go screw off and kill herself. and the whole part about the first time thing, is just him making himself feel better that he kinda screwed her over too.



this song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/22/08

this song i see that this guy was falling for this girl and she dicked his boots. now he is bitter as hell writing a song about her. recalling the things she said to him. he also said things to her that he just said to pull her in. he wanted to be with her but she didnt know what she wanted and left him and now hes bitter as hell. bitches are crazy man, just make money and screw bitches.



this song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/22/08

reminds me of what i just went through. fuck her man! bitches...cant live with them and most certainly cant live without them. she hurt him so he makes a song about her in his perspective. its as easy as that.



great break up song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/22/08

hes talking about some girl that broke his heart. she may not have realized it but it happend. reminds me and the girl i was rcently with. hes now bitter bc he was falling for her and she ran off with an ex or something. so hes mad bitter so he wrote this song. hes saying shit like i told u were my first but you werent even close now bc he wants to hurt her like she hurt him. its like catching ur lover cheating and coming back saying haha well i cheated tooo.



No, No, No, Seriously ? | Reviewer: Grace Elisabeth | 8/3/08

I Dont Think Either Way That Ones "Cheating" Or Really "Using" . Its About Being In A Relationship, &Getting Bored With It . You End Up Hating The Other Person, Wanting To See Them End Up Hurt Because You Are SomeWhat Attached To Them SomeWay Whether It Be Sexually Or Emotionally . Its A In Your Face KindOf Song . I Love It . Thats What I Think Of .



i think | Reviewer: Nick | 7/12/08

It is definately about the girl cheating on the guy. But he admits to using her also. It also started with him lieing to her about being his first love. So technically he started the relationship off with a lie but then fell in love with her and the roses symbolize that the thorns show the his pain from finding out about her. But all in all it is a really good song and Senses Fail is one of my top 3 favorite bands.



choke on this | Reviewer: Giovanne rodriguez | 1/10/08

I think you guys are close, but in my opinion it is about two single people. The singer is a lover scorned and bittered by his emotoinal attachment to the woman, who isn't reciprocated. The woman is a girl who enjoys being single and is addicted to lust and backs out of relationships when things start to get serious.
So keeps on lusting. So he is basically meeting his female counter-part, which completes the singer, but the female is completely apthetic to his obvious attempts at trying to be WITH her. The key part is 'cheap novelty'. So in a sense he's saying get over yourself, because your not that great and i played you first. I'd rather hurt you than hurt myself is about him feeling rejected and pushing her away.
