GO!

Awake at night you focus,
On everyone who's hurt you,
And write a list of targets,
Your violent lack of virtue.

LEAVE US ALONE!
YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN!

GO!

We are breathing,
While you're sleeping, go!
And leave us alone,
The liars cheating,
Our hearts beating, go!
And now you're on your own.

Here's to your perfect weapon,
Crack bones with blind aggression,
Like birds whose wings are broken,
You live without direction.

LEAVE US ALONE!
YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN!

We are breathing,
While your sleeping, go!
And leave us alone,
The liars cheating,
Our heart's beating, go!
And now you're on your own.

GO!
GO!
GO!
GO!
AND NOW YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN
GO!
GO!
AND LEAVE US ALONE!

(Laughter)

We are breathing,
While your sleeping, go!
And leave us alone,
The liars cheating,
Our heart's beating, go!
And now you're on your own.

    This song means to me that even though there's hater's and bad people, no matter what, you have your perfect weapons and you raise them high againt them. Who cares what they say and what they think of you, you have your perfect weapons there with you, always! People will let you down, but you can always pick yourself up again and keep going. So, this song is pretty much is saying (to me) that even though things are bad, raise your perfect weapons high and proud! Be who you wanna be, stand against the haters, and keep going! This song has helped me and many others, and bvb will keep doing that for a long, long time! Don't let others take you down, you have your perfect weapon(s) and the army with you

    One of the most meaningful songs I've ever listened to. It's about the kids that get picked on. It's a song telling those people that do the bullying to leave us alone because we breath, we have a heart just like everyone else does.
