Oh, I hate to be the one to bear the bad news
Yes, it is true
I finally fell in love
I fell so hard that I'm killing myself
Yes, I need out
Out of this grave that I've dug

And all the friends that I have gone through
And how much I deserve the pain
It's a shame

So hold your head
Hold it up high
Here's to the friends that were alibis
Keep this close by your side
When I come home we will have our night

Oh, they always told me I was gorgeous in a way
And that fateful day
I found who I was
So fill this hole with my prescriptions
I just keep feeding my addictions

And all the friends that I have gone through
And how much I deserve the pain
It's a shame

So hold your head
Hold it up high
Here's to the friends that were alibis
Keep this close by your side
When I come home we will have our night
We will have our night

You were the ones that stood by my side, whoa
And I was the one that fought all of your fights
Go!

(Hold your head, hold it up high) Whoa
(Keep this close by your side) Whoa

So hold your head
Hold it high
Here's to the friends that were alibis
Keep this close by your side
When I come home we will have our night

Hold your head
Hold it up high
Here's to the friends that were alibis
Keep this close by your side
When I come home we will have our night

Hold your head
Hold it up high
Here's to the friends that were alibis
Keep this close by your side
When I come home we will have our night
We will have our night

    It seems as though every verse in this song relates to me on a personal level. I love how the band doesn't even kno u but can have such an effect on your life. This song made me see that I'm not the only one with the problems. Every one loses friends, everyone falls 4 the wrong person. I love Escape the Fate

    after reading the lyrics over and over(and over ) i noticed that it has something to do with prescription pills. 'so fill this whole with my prescription, i just keep feeding my addiction' he could be addicted to anti depressants that he has to take to cope with all the people he's lost. well jst in case u were wondering Me And Zoloft Get Along Just Fine =)
