Story Behind the Song

Difficult to watch those we love engage in excess for which the consequences are often only noticed by those outside the situation.

Lyrics

You hurt yourself you over-do
You're such a wreck, || it's painful just to look at you.

You over-drink you over-spend
You just don't see how this could turn out in the end

How can I help you when you won't help yourself?
I feel so sad and helpless and can think of nothin' else.
How can I help you when that force inside of you
Sabotages everything that those who love you try to do.
How can I help you when you... won't help yourself?

You look at me with that blank stare
You've no idea... what I am saying standing here.

Denial rules what you perceive
You've no idea, || you only see what you believe.

How can I help you when you won't help yourself?
I feel so sad and helpless and can think of nothin' else.
How can I help you when that force inside of you
Sabotages everything that those who love you try to do.
How can I help you when you... won't help yourself?

It feels so wrong what I must do
The letting go, || as fear and pain catch up with you.

You won't wake up until you know
You won't wake up until you know
You won't wake up until you know
Your pain is caused by you alone... your pain is caused by you alone.

How can I help you when you won't help yourself?
I feel so sad and helpless and can think of nothin' else.
How can I help you when that force inside of you
Sabotages everything that those who love you try to do.
How can I help you when you... won't help yourself?
How can I help you when you... won't help yourself?
