Ou-ou-ou...

Say, yes they know that you've hurt yourself another time
Don't they know that you're full of pain already?
Yes they know that you've hurt yourself another time
Decadence isn't easy, is it?

Yes they know that you've hurt yourself another time
Don't they know that you're full of pain already?
Yes they know that you've hurt yourself another time
Decadence isn't easy

When you slowly recall all your mind
While your soul's gone cold, and all hope has run dry
Dead inside
Never enough to forget that you're one of the lonely
Slowly recall all your mind

Say, yes they know that you've hurt yourself another time
Don't they know that you're full of pain already?
Yes they know that you've hurt yourself another time
Decadence isn't easy, is it?

Yes they know that you've hurt yourself another time
Don't they know that you're full of pain already?
Yes they know that you've hurt yourself another time
Decadence isn't easy

When you slowly recall all your mind
While your soul's gone cold, and all hope has run dry
Dead inside
Never enough to forget that you're one of the lonely
Slowly recall all your mind

If I scare you now,
Don't run from me
I've been hiding my pain, you see
Said if I scare you now,
Don't run from me
I've been hiding my pain, you see

Slowly recall all your mind
While your soul's gone cold, and all hope has run dry
Dead inside
Never enough to forget that you're one of the lonely
Slowly recall all your mind
Slowly recall all your mind

Say, yes they know that you've hurt yourself another time
Don't they know that you're full of pain already?
Yes they know that you've hurt yourself another time
Decadence isn't easy is it?

    Shadow Prince, you described perfectly what I am going through, and have been going through for the past 5 1/2 years.I think I can safely say that you would suck as a therapist, but you are probably one of the best people to talk to because you don't BS. Chaz4Aiden, I hope you have the strength to leave this guy behind you, I know I could never leave the woman I love.

    This song will bring pain to any with a broken heart, if they know the lyrics. When people bring more pain to themselves for others, when they already have abroken heart, it will kill thier soul and leave them empty and dead.

    Nah it's much worse then that Chaz4Aiden. It's where you dedicate your heart, mind, body and soul to another and they except you they rely on you they love you, Just not the way that you love them. You mean less to them then they mean to you in comparison you mean nothing at all though they claim that your important to them and even though they know that you hate it (Feeling that way about them) they insist that you stay near them because they've come to rely on you to the point where they would feel lost if you were to leave. Yet at the same time they fight that to remain "Independent" and then only after they have broken away totally from you do they realize that they are now worse off then they were with you... Still they want to rely on you to stay close to you knowing the pain that you feel due to loving them! The only thing left is your pain and your rage and your hate at a world that has NO JUSTICE!!! Yet the inability to just end it all, waiting for death that never seems to want to claim you!

    I think it represents how i feel right now. I hurt myself to get back at Aiden... and he knows, but he merely calls me a EMO. Which, sadly, is true. If i think of not ever seeing him again, it makes me cold and sad, as though all hope has gone from the world. I ALWAYS HIDE MY PAIN. Else people would say im crazy...

    The title says it all. You go from relationship to relationship looking for excitement but you still end up alone... Which is why "it isn't easy" . It also compares starting a new relationship to going to war when it's over you forget all the good times you have and only remember the pain.
