It's a depressive song, even though I was never into a depression I just love it. The lyrics are about a guy trying to convince a suicidal girl not to jump.
The chorus translation it's like he's explaining life for her through metaphors: Life is like a mother that cook dinner and forces her children to eat their vegetables, because she knows thats good for them. And death is like an abusive father, who beats the mother and take out the children's joy of playing like there's no tomorrow.
By the end she probably jumps, since she says to him that "nobody is made of steel, we're programmed to fall."
