I want a normal life
Just like a new born child
I am a lover hater
I am an instigator
You are an oversight
Don't try to compromise
I'll learn to love to hate it
I am not integrated

Just call my name
You'll be okay
Your scream is burning through my veins

Sooner or later you're gonna hate it
Go ahead and throw your life away
Driving me under, leaving me out there
Go ahead and throw your life away

You're like an infantile
I knew it all the while
You sit and try to play me
Just like you see on tv
I am an oversight
Just like a parasite
Why am I so pathetic
I know you won't forget it

Just call my name
You'll be okay
Your scream is burning through my veins

Sooner or later you're gonna hate it
Go ahead and throw my life away
Driving me under, leaving me out there
Go ahead and throw my life away

Sooner or later you're gonna hate it
Go ahead and throw our life away
Driving me under, leaving me out there
Go ahead and throw our life away

Throw our life away
Ooooo
Throw our life away

    If you've seen the music video, it portrays the end of a relationship. Being hurt very badly in the process... Saying 'go ahead and through my/your/our life away' and at the end of the song, when she finally comes back, he's already moved on.. And the tables kinda turned. But knowing breaking benjamin, i think there is some deeper meaning than just that (although that is very deep in itself). But i think it is refering to society, and our culture... And having a loved one turn there back on their morals and values, and making really bad choices... And (ben) finnally giving up and basically saying 'i cant stop you from doing this, but eventually you are going to hate what you did' (sooner or later, your gonna hate it, go ahead and throw your life away)

    Im trying to find a song to represent wuthering heights .. Have you read that? I was wondering if you had any suggestions. Any song about heartlessness, selfishness.. Ignored love. Souls beging the same.. Nothing happening as planned, revenge. (anything like that if you havint read it)

    the meaning of this song is straightforward if you understand the big words he uses. It's about someone dumping him and he's talking about how they've thrown their life away, and how they've just crushed him in a way. If you have questions post them and i'll try my best to answer
