I look alive
I'm dead inside
My heart has holes
And black blood flows
We'll do some drugs
We'll fall in love
And get fucked up
While the world just shrugs
With no thought logically
We're wandering the streets so aimlessly
I hate to see these kids just being put down so painlessly
And people say you dye your hair and wear tight jeans
That doesn't mean that you can't scream and like loud noise
You got a choice
You have a voice
And just because you show no love
And hate on us
You fucked our trust
Now watch me thrust this knife called lust
Into my chest until it bursts

This love
This hate
It's burning me away
It's hard to face that we're
All the same
This love
This hate
It's burning me away
It's hard at times like these
That never change

You're mad at the fact that your dad is an addict
You're freind takes pills
He thinks it cures sadness
I'm not here to attack and make your kids panic
But it's just tragic the way you kids have it
Everybody sins and it all begins
It goes back around
And nobody ever wins
And you stab yourself in the back
Everybody just relax
It all just hits so close to home
We all got friends
But we stand alone
And your on your own
From a broken home
You keep the truth inside and it stays unknown
Nostalgia hits and it's time to quit
And everybody acts like it don't mean shit
And your friend would stab you just to fuck some girl
Put your hands in the air
Scream "FUCK THE WORLD"

This love
This hate
It's burning me away
It's hard to face that we're
All the same
This love
This hate
It's burning me away
It's hard at times like these
That never change

LET GO
I'll bring you closer
RIGHT NOW
I'll hold on tightly
LET GO
We're going nowhere
SOMEWHERE
And things aren't over

Hard at times like these
Growing up on the streets
Hard at times like these
We'll put you back on your feet

This love
This hate
It's burning me away
It's hard to face that we're
All the same
This love
This hate
It's burning me away
It's hard at times like these
That never change

This love
This hate
It's burning me away

And I fall to the ground when my tear drops
And I get lost everytime my heart stops

This love
This hate
It's burning me away

And I fall to the ground when my tear drops
And I get lost everytime my heart stops

This love
This hate
It's burning me away

    Its about the struglles of life, and how you'll constantly be judged wherever you go. What they're trying to say is, the stereotypes and hate are tearing people apart and making them betray eachother in times of need.
    I agree :]

    It means - to me - that the world takes the love people feel and twists it into a blade that kills. People take their life because others say their love isn't worth it or that is isn't logical and moral. Some people don't understand love and how it affects others, they need to be more open minded.

    Its about how painful the reality of life is and people doing what ever it takes just to make it sop. Also about how people judge and put down people for being different
