Scratch card glory, waist low pleasure?
Black eyes nose bleeds, don't look back now
My white abode, do you remember?
My white abode,
But it's such a thrill just to find out...

Sorry you're not a winner
With the air so cold and a mind so bitter
What have you got to lose
But false intentions and a life so pretentious?

Scratch card glory, waist low pleasure?
Black eyes nose bleeds, don't look back now
My white abode do you remember?
My white abode
But it's such a thrill just to find out...

Sorry you're not a winner
With the air so cold and a mind so bitter
What have you got to lose
But false intentions and a life so pretentious?

Scratch card glory, waist low pleasure?
Black eyes nose bleeds don't look back now
My white abode do you remember?
I sweat I ache...

Sorry you're not a winner
With the air so cold and a mind so bitter
What have you got to lose
But false intentions and a life so pretentious?

What? What? What?
Goodbye, Your world... ends!
Insert your coin
Please try again
Insert your coin
Please try again...

    Well guys, they are very great meaning, but its about gambling. "Scratch card glory or waist low pleasure?" meaning like trying to win in the scratchy or going home to your girlfriend,wife etc: "Black eyes nose bleeds, don't look back now" basically means like the repo/debt man coming to take his stuff because he is so far in debt and he prob gives him a few punches before he leaves. ""My white abode, do you remember? My white abode" means he has probably lost his house in his gambling problem. "But it's such a thrill just to find out…" means it is such a thrill to see if he wins or not..."Sorry you're not a winner with the air so cold and a mind so bitter
    What have you got to lose but false intentions and a life so pretentious?
    I sweat, I ache." This is pretty much self explanatory he has lost his scratch card or anything other gambling things he has done. and at the end the "what what what" bit means he has lost again and is questioning it... and "try again/insert your coin" is just like the poker machines or slot machines.

    In conclusion, that is the real meaning to Sorry Your not a winner" and im 14 XD and i spent like 20 misn doing that so thankyou guys and i hope u thing it is the right reason

    It does have meaning, dawggy-dawgs

    It's about succumbing to some of the temptations in modern society, which you were always told as a child were bad for you and not worth it. (sex, violence, gambling) then, after the initial buzz of the partaking, they realise that they didn't gain anything from it, and is left with a 'mind so bitter'

    C ya later, darsh!

    I think its to do with how were living in a manotory system today, not realizing how much were being controlled for the people at the top, i mean what have we got to loose but false intentions and a life pretentiuos? my white abode is a saying the k.k.k use to use for everything they wanted a white home filled with everything white, 'do you remember my white abode' more or less asking us do we remember , becuase it is unknowingly happening today without us realizing, people above the goverment are quitley acheiving this while we live in a world based on needs of thing we dont need, been controlled by things like religion, money and power. 'sorry your not a winner' insert your coin please try again, okay so your not a winner in life you havnt the best of jobs, insert your coin and try again, dont give up get a better job, been controlled by the industry telling you to do better so we can keep there system running rather than realizing the truth, this song for me is about how we live in a society about money, entertaintment and such things wich we dont need and its there to keep us under controll and blind from the truth, and it is a thrill to find out what realy is happening in the world today, try it youll see. thanks

    Hahahaha lmao. Max its not about gambling, its about racism/the KuKluxKlan.

    Its basically saying that the KKK are filled with false hope. They know that they are never going get what they want, they might aswell give up. They have nothing to loose - What have you got to lose
    But false intentions and a life so pretentious?

    A white abode is a racist comment used by the KKK. Basically it means an area with just white people. The KKK used to have what they wanted, but as time has progressed, its become unacceptable. - My white abode do you remember?
    My white abode

    And also it tells that there has been alot of pointless fighting in the past over it. - Black eyes nose bleeds, don't look back now

    If you read the lyrics again after reading this comment you will see what im on about :D
