Remember when I dove into the crowd
And I got a bloody knee under my skin, a mark from wiping out
It brings back the memories
Every bone's been broken
And my heart is still wide open

I can’t stop
Don’t care if I lose
Baby you are the weapon I choose
These wounds are self inflicted
I’m going down *in flames* for you
Baby you are the weapon I choose
These wounds are self inflicted
One more thing I’m addicted too

With each scar there’s a map that tells a story what a souvenir of Young love's like jumping out
An airplane riding a tidal wave on an ocean of emotion
My heart rips me wide open

I can’t stop
Don’t care if I lose
Baby you are the weapon I choose
These wounds are self inflicted
I’m going down *in flames* for you
Baby you are the weapon I choose
These wounds are self inflicted
One more thing I’m addicted too

And I cover up these scars
(We’ll make it we’ll make it but we break it)
And I can’t stop seeing stars
(lets hope not die)
Whenever you’re around
Around

I can’t stop
Don’t care if I lose
Baby you are the weapon I choose
These wounds are self inflicted
I’m going down in flames for you
oohhh you are the weapon I choose
These wounds are self inflicted
One more thing I’m addicted to

I can’t stop no I can’t stop
no I can't stop
Ohh I’m going out in flames
Ohh I’m going down in flames
Ohhhh
Baby you are the weapon I choose
Baby you are the weapon I choose...

    Love hurts, but she can't bring herself to care. It's not physical?she doesn't seem the type to put up with abuse?but emotional pain.

    I also love katy perry! My other favorite song by her is hummingbird heartbeat. For some reason i can't explain, i feel like i can relate to what she's saying in the song. And for that reason i also like the song who am i living for?

    To me it means that she forced these [injuries] upon herself by dating this guy. When it says 'baby you are the weapon i choose' it means that it was him who gave her these [injuries], and she set herself up for them.

    Its about a boy hurting a girl, but she doesn't care. She could easily leave him, but she doesnt want to (cue: these wounds are self inflicted).
    I love katy perry.

    I think this song is about a girl saying to a boy that he's not the one hurting her, she's choosing this so he should just go with it. I like katy perry, but i normally listen to rock and heavy metal stuff. Cool.
