Hard news, taken harder, don't look to me
Disappointed, we don't agree, I don't need your praise...
(Don't look my way for help,
From the beginning you came to me)
Never asked you to like me,
I don't want your praise (we won't play your games)
Look down on me, spit in my face,
You're nothing to me... not to me

Darkened eyes you'll see,
There is no hope, no savior in me
(Don't look this way, don't breathe this way,
Don't stare this way, anymore)
Learned from years gone by, no one will care,
What happens to me
(Don't look this way, don't breathe this way,
Don't stare this way, anymore)

My presence won't be ignored, no not today
Don't walk in my direction, turn the other way
(Don't look my way for help,
From the beginning you came to me)
Asking questions, predetermined answers,
You won't find them here (we don't want your opinion)
And I don't want you, I won't let you think,
Compromise is near. 'Cause it's not near.

Darkened eyes you'll see,
There is no hope, no savior in me
(Don't look this way, don't breathe this way,
Don't stare this way, anymore)
Learned from years gone by, no one will care,
What happens to me
(Don't look this way, don't breathe this way,
Don't stare this way, anymore)

I'm alone in here
No more feelings
Killed my fears
Don't ask
You'll never know
You're left behind and I'll be exposed

Far away, you keep on trying...
Holding me down, breaking away,
Trying to distance my life.
Not one in the crowd, but one with the answer
The one that could change your mind

But it's not true, I don't need you
Don't waste your time, and don't waste mine
I'm not your friend, I won't soothe your soul
And in the end you're all dead to me...

    This song is simply about the absolute chaos of someones life after a betrayal by someone close to the main figure in the song, When it says "hard news taken harder" it means an over exaggeration caused by a strong emotional attachment, "Don't look to me" is the main figure yelling at the other person saying "when you run in to trouble I will not be here for you". "Disappointed we don't agree" Is the second figure speaking to the main figure trying to give reason to the conflict". "I don't need your praise" is the main figure lashing back", the argument continues into the chorus where the singer says "Darkened eyes you'll see, there is no hope no savior in me (Don't look this way, Don't breath this way anymore) Learned from years gone by no one will care what happens to me" basically explains what the main figure is thinking about the second figure and himself/herself. And at the end of the song "Far away, you keep on trying... Holding me down, breaking away, Trying to distance my life. Not one in the crowd, but one with the answer The one that could change your mind But it's not true, I don't need you, Don't waste your time, and don't waste mine I'm not your friend, I won't soothe your soul And in the end you're all dead to me..." is the final outrage of the main figure. In conclusion this is a song about an intense breakup

    if you want to know the meaning of the song look at the name here are the definitions

    It what someone thinks in a breakup probably
    or even when some is pushing someone around that person pushes and pushes until the victim resents him. He then needs the victims help and the victim basically says fuck off

    I'm really not good at trying to find out what something means but ya here goes:

    I think the meaning to this song is that every one came to him for help before
    "don't look my way for help,
    From the beginning you came to me"
    but when he needed help, no one helped him so he turned his back on them
    "Learned from years gone by, no one will care,
    What happens to me"
    But he has the answers th their problems but since no one cares about him, then he won't care about them
    "I'm not your friend, I won't soothe your soul
    And in the end you're all dead to me..."

    ya so any wayz i LOOOve this song forever
    and don't get mad at me for getting the meaning wrong if it is
    XD
