Joel Faviere – The War Against Ourselves lyrics

Another day alone
Another night
Another knife
I guess I'm on my own
The lights are on my eyes are closed
And no one understands
The Dark I'm dealing with
And all the people in my life
Are way too blind to see the vice

All these scars
All these scars
From the war against ourselves
The war against ourselves
All these scars
All these scars
From the war against ourselves
I'm living in a hell
It's what is real

Real oh, I don't wanna go anymore

I know that your confused
I've been there once
I've been there twice
The third I didn't choose
I guess I'm born to lose
The ones that break you down
They look so cool
It's why I always break the fucking rules
My synchronized wounds

All these scars
All these scars
From the war against ourselves
The war against ourselves
All these scars
All these scars
From the war against ourselves
I'm living in a hell
It`s what`s real

They break me down
I can't block the sound
So I turn to the one thing
I know will not let me down
People don't think to ask what's wrong
I stop and go to the beat of the broken flow in blood

All these scars
All these scars
From the war against myself
I'm a walking hell
I won't starve my self of the dark
Listen to me scream and shout
But do not say a word

    This song is about depression and self-harm/self-injury. In the first verse, it explains how he feels alone and that everybody in his life who cares about him clearly can't see how he feels and what he is doing to himself to make himself feel something. It says that they do not understand what he's dealing with, even though they are around him most of the time, but not when he is alone in his room and harming himself because of all the people breaking him down. He can't ignore what they are telling him, and feels as if he was only born to have people break him down.
    The song basically explains the feelings of someone going through depression and self-harm, and that his scars are from the war he had been facing against himself. His emotions are mixed up, and he thinks the only thing he can really rely on is his blood flowing from his self-injury wounds.
