Song meaning

"Being with someone can be like an addiction. Gradually, you can't stand to be without them, everything you once enjoyed- you no longer care about, you become weak and dependent. Like a heroin addiction - you think you can live without it, but you're gradually dying inside and out. Break free." - Matt Heafy [1]

Music video
