Song Meaning

Diluted is a song written about a person who is incapable of continuing living. Others haunt them, and themselves, and may have to deal with emotional problems such as MPD, and Schizophrenia. Or maybe he's just extremely depressed. Either way, the lyrics are more than relatable.

Lyrics

I'm cold, I'm ugly
I'm always confused by everything
I can stare into a thousand eyes
But every smile hides a bold-faced lie
It itches, it seethes, it festers and breathes
My heroes are dead, they died in my head
Thin out the herd, squeeze out the pain
Something inside me has opened up again
Thoughts of me exemplified all the little flaws I have denied
Forget today, forget whatever happened
Every day I see a little more of overall deficiencies
I'm nothing short of being one complete catastrophe

What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?
What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?

I save all the bullets from ignorant minds
Your insults get stuck in my teeth as they grind
Way past good taste, on our way to bad omens
I decrease, while my symptoms increase
God, what the fuck is wrong?
You act like you knew it all along
Your timing sucks
Your silence is a blessing
All I ever wanted out of you was
Something you could never be
Now take a real good look at
What you've fucking done to me

What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?
What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?

Give me any reason why I'd need you
Give me any reason why I'd need you
Give me any reason why I'd need you
Give me any reason not to fuck you up
Give me any reason why I'd need you
Give me any reason why I'd need you
Give me any reason not to fuck you up
I see you in me
I see you in me
I see you in me
I see you in me
I see you in me
I see you in me
I see you in me
I see you in me

I keep my scars from prying eyes
Incapable of ever knowing why
Somebody breathes
I've got to have an answer
Why am I so fascinated by
Bigger pictures, better things
But I don't care what you think
You'll never understand me

What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?
What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?
What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?
What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?

Fuck!
