Once more I'll say goodbye to you;
Things happen but we don't really know why
If it's supposed to be like this, why do most of us ignore the chance to miss?

Oh yeah

Torn apart at the seams and my dreams turn to tears;
I'm not feeling this situation
Run away try to find that safe place you can hide
It's the best place to be when you're feeling like...

Me (Me)
Yeah (Yeah)
All these things I hate revolve around
Me (Me)
Yeah (Yeah)
Just back off before I snap

Once more you tell those lies to me;
Why can't you just be straight up with honesty?
When you say those things in my ear,
Why do you always tell me what you wanna hear?

Oh yeah

Wear your heart on your sleeve, make things hard to believe, I'm not feeling this situation
Run away try to find that safe place you can hide
It's the best place to be when you're feeling like...

Me (Me)
Yeah (Yeah)
All these things I hate revolve around
Me (Me)
Yeah (Yeah)
Just back off before I snap,
And you'll see (Me)
Me (Me)
All these things I hate revolve around
Me (Me)
Now (Now)
Just back off before I snap...

Torn apart at the seams and my dreams turn to tears,
I'm not feeling this situation
Run away, try to find that safe place you can hide
It's the best place to be when you're feeling like me
It's the best place to be when you're...

Me (Me)
Yeah (Yeah)
All these things I hate revolve around
Me (Me)
Yeah (Yeah)
Just back off before I snap,
And you'll see (Me)
Me (Me)
All these things I hate revolve around
Me (Me)
Now (Now)
Just back off before I snap

    Dear God butterflyz666, I'm gonna laugh when a BFMV fan hear's you compare Tokio Hotel, 3DG, & MCR to BULLET! In fact, if you were next to me right now I'd pop you in ur damn mouth! Bullet is WAYYY better than all of those, Tokio Hotel sux, 3DG is aight, & MCR is great but Bullet is SOOO much fuckin better!

    Okay, this song like many other songs can have multiple interpretations so depending on how you look at it, the meaning can be swayed. But if you look at it in the relationship point of view you will see that "Once more I'll say goodbye to you" and "If its supposed to be like this why do most of us ignore the chance to miss?" represent a relationship that has failed multiple times. Also, most people know (at least subconsciously) that it has a good chance of failing. And when it does we tell ourselves its for the best or how its "supposed to be", "so why do we ignore the chance to miss?" Means why not aviod it from the beginning and save ourselves the heartache.
    The Chorus(s) speak for themselves its the pissed off emotions that we have when relationships fail, and how the ex is usually near by as well all the things we used to love but now hate.
    The second verse could be reffering to lies as in cheating or any kind of lie a girlfriend can have, which we know there are many! "Why cant you just be straight up with honesty?" basically says i know you're lying you're just making it worse by faking it.

    When you hate some thing's in your life and that you wish to escape it and yell at those who put you down before you snap at them andthat how nobody understands your pain apart from yourself whenever you scream :)xx
