“Punishment” is a sweet yet sinister love song.
It’s about all the ways that someone can control another by ‘caring’ or ‘helping’ them.
You can put yourself in the role of caregiver and have it become such a deep rooted part of your identity that you actually don’t want the person you ‘care’ for to get better.
This song is written from the point of someone who is sabotaging an individual just enough so that they are unable to become independent and will continue to rely on their ‘caregiver.’

Do I get what I want, when she sets fire?
The narrator of this song needs to be with someone who ‘sets herself on fire’ to feel like they are needed.
Maybe they are admitting this to themselves for the first time in this cycle or maybe this admission is part of the cycle as well.
