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

    I think its about a greedy someone who's obsessed with gambling. Playing scratch card games and blowing money on slot machines.
