Music video Edit

A screenshot of the video

The music video was first shown at the record release party of I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love in 2002, and was available online. It was not widely released until September 23, 2005 on the 2005 re-release of I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love. The video was directed by Marc Debiak. It is similar to the movie Audition (directed by Takashi Miike).

The videos is about a man looking for a spouse and after a series of interviews, he finds a woman. After their first date he tries to find where she lives and apparently cannot find her address. When he returns to his home, he pours himself a drink and after drinking it collapses on the floor. The woman comes out of a doorway. She then proceeds to torture the paralyzed man.

Meaning Edit

The song is about a relationship that has gone sour. The protagonist seems to be suicidal("The amount of pills i've taken, counteracts the booze i'm drinkin'). It also seems that the other person is cheating. It seems that they want the relationship to end.

Lyrics Edit

The amount of pills I’m taking, counteracts the booze I’m drinking
and this vanity I’m breaking, lets me live my life like this
and well I find it hard to stay, with the words you say
Oh baby let me in
Oh baby let me in
Well I’ll choose the life I’ve taken, never mind the friends I’m making
and the beauty that I’m faking lets me live my life like this
And well I find it hard to stay, with the words you say
Oh baby let me in
Oh baby let me in


And you can cry all you want to, I don’t care how much
You’ll invest yourself in me, we’re not working out (we’re not working out)
We’re not working out (we’re not working out)
And you can’t touch my brother and you can't keep my friends
and we’re not working out, we’re not working out
This time I mean it, never mind the times I’ve seen it


Well I hope I’m not mistaken by the news I heard from waking
and it’s hard to say I’m shaken, by the choices that I make
and well I find it hard to stay, with the words you say
Oh baby let me in
Oh baby let me in
Well I’ll choose this life I’ve taken, never mind the friends I’m making
And I get a little shaken, because I live my life like this
And well I find it hard to stay, with the words you say
Oh baby let me in
Oh baby let me in


And you can cry all you want to, I don’t care how much
You’ll invest yourself in me, we’re not working out,
We’re not working out
And you can’t keep my brother, and you won’t fuck my friends
and we’re not working out, we're not working out
This time I mean it, never mind the times I’ve seen it


Never again, never, never again


(And you can cry all you want to, I don’t care how much you’ll invest yourself in me)
Ne—… never… never… never again
(And you can cry all you want to, I don’t care how much you’ll invest yourself)
Ne—… never… never… oh baby let me… oh baby… oh baby
Oh baby let me in
Oh baby let me in
I’m knocking let me in
Oh baby let me in
Oh baby let me in
I’m knocking let me in
Oh baby let me in
Oh baby let me in
