Billy Talent – Nothing To Lose lyrics

Need more friends with wings,
All the angels I know put concrete in my veins
I'd always walk home alone,
So I became lifeless just like my telephone

There's nothing to lose
When no one knows your name
There's nothing to gain
But the days don't seem to change

Never played truth or dare,
I'd have to check my mirror to see if I'm still here
My parents had no clue,
That I ate all my lunches alone in the bathroom

There's nothing to lose
When no one knows your name
There's nothing to gain
But the days don't seem to change

There's nothing to lose
My notebook will explain
There's nothing to gain
And I can't fight the pain

Teacher said it's just a phase,
When I grow up, my children will probably do the same

Kids just love to tease,
Who'd know it put me underground at 17

There's nothing to lose
When no one knows your name
There's nothing to gain
But the days don't seem to change

There's nothing to lose
My notebook will explain
There's nothing to gain
And I can't fight the pain

There's nothing to lose
When no one knows your name
There's nothing to gain
But the days don't seem to change

There's nothing to lose
When no one knows your name
There's nothing to gain
Then I just died today

    _Unforgettable_
    This song talks about a kid who kills himself because people bully him and he doesn't have any friends. I'm pretty tough, and this song even made me want to cry. In the end of the video, the guy kills himself by carbon monoxide asphyxiation. That means he breathed in the poisonous fumes from the car. I never did it, so I wouldn't know, but it would probably be painless.
    In an article featured in 'What Magazine', Ben Kowalewicz (lead singer) wrote that 'Nothing to Lose' was written after reading about an Ontario teen who killed himself after being bullied at school.
    Anyways,at a Billy Talent show, right before they played this song Ben was like "I want you guys to do something and I don't do this very often but everyone hold up your lighter or cell phone." and the whole place lit up just like that. It was so cool because it was all the blue from the cells mixed with the lighters. We were really far up so the whole crowd lit up below us. And he was all "No matter what happens your never ever, EVER alone. We got your back." Then he started to sing Nothing to Lose. My favourite part of the entire night even if I didn't like the song as much as I loved some of the others. And everyone kept their lighters and stuff up during the song and it was so cool.
    So basically I think Billy Talent made this song so people who were depressed or thinking of suicide would know they aren't alone and no matter what there will always be someone who cares about them even if they don't think anyone does. (sorry if I waffled on a bit XD)
