I'm so fed up with everyone around me
(No one seems to care)
I'm just so far gone and nothing's gonna change
(I'll never be the same)

It's always do this, do that,
Everything they want to
I don't want to live that way
(No)
Every chance they get they're always
Shovin me aside

[Chorus:]
It's never enough
No it's never enough
No matter what I say

It's never enough
No it's never enough
I'll never be what you want me to be

It's all so messed up and no one ever listens
(Everyone's deranged)
I'm just so fucked up and I'm never gonna change
(Wanna lay it all to waste)

They're always say this, say that,
Nothing that you want to
I don't want to live that way
Every chance they get they're always
Shovin me aside

[Chorus]

I'm Done
(I'm done X6)

[Bridge:]
In the end we're all just chalklines on the concrete
Drawn only to be washed away
For the time that I've been given
I am what I am

I'd rather hate you
For everything you are
Than ever love you
For something you are not

I'd rather you hate me
For everything I am
Than have you love me
For something that I can't

It's never enough
It's never enough
No matter what I say

It's never enough
No it's never enough
No matter who I try to be

It's never enough
No it's never enough
No matter how I try to change

It's never enough
Never never enough
I'll never be what you want me to be.

    This song has to be the most badass song ever made! It perfectly matches the scenario between my friends, my siblings and i. Because no matter how hard we try to please every goddamn person on this fucking planet, our efforts never meet anyone's expectations. I also believe that no matter how much we try to please other people or ourselves, we all just practically waste our lives trying to fulfill our own or someone else's happiness. But overall, it's an awesome song, I love their music.

    This song is basicaly about life... When you are born everyone expects you to be the best of the family and to outshie everyone.
    People don't realize that we develope a personality that makes us do things our way without thinking what another people will say.
    This song is about those people who are never satisfied or proud of you no matter what you say or do

    Its a song about a detectives kid who steals his dads gun, tries to rob a gas staion, gets shot by cops. Then the end is family photos to show how normal the kid was, though he conformed to his friends idea to rob the store, and died for it. The girl is the kids mom, the guy lookin at the picture is the kids dad, a detective/cop

    I think it means someone is trying to be someone that everyone would like but no matter what he does it doesnt work and no matter how much effort he puts it in his work its not enough for people
