Lyrics
We're living in repetition
Content in the same old shtick again
Now the routine's turning to contention
Like a production line going over and over and over
Roller coaster

Now I cannot speak, I lost my voice
I'm speechless and redundant
'Cause I love you's not enough
I'm lost for words

Choreographed and lack of passion
Prototypes of what we were
Went full circle 'til I'm nauseous
Taken for granted now
Now I waste it, I faked it, I ate it, now I hate it

'Cause I cannot speak, I lost my voice
I'm speechless and redundant
'Cause I love you's not enough
I'm lost for words, now I cannot speak

Now I cannot speak, I lost my voice
I'm speechless and redundant
'Cause I love you's not enough
I'm lost for words
Song Meaning
The word "redundant" is an adjective, used to describe something that is overly repetitive. In the context of this song, it is used to describe a relationship. The narrator and his romantic partner have drifted apart. They still love each other, but the "spark" has now gone away, which resulted in circular arguing. The narrator isn't bitter toward his partner, because it isn't her fault. He feels like the phrase "I love you" has no meaning for the two of them, because it has been overused.
