Wake in a sweat again
Another day's been laid to waste
In my disgrace
Stuck in my head again
Feels like I'll never leave this place
There's no escape

I'm my own worst enemy

I've given up...
I'm sick of Feeling
Is there nothing you can say?
Take this all away
I'm suffocating!
Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me!

I don't know what to take
Thought I was focused but I'm scared
I'm not prepared
I hyperventilate.
Looking for help somehow somewhere
And no one cares

I'm my own worst enemy

I've given up...
I'm sick of Feeling
Is there nothing you can say?
Take this all away
I'm suffocating!
Tell me what the fuck is
Wrong with me!

GOD!

Put me out of my misery
Put me out of my misery
Put me out of my...
Put me out of my fucking misery!

I've given up...
I'm sick of Feeling
Is there nothing you can say?
Take this all away
I'm suffocating!
Tell me what the fuck is
Wrong with me!

    actually I think the meaning to this song isnt emo or suicide, i think its more of hes on the verge of suicide but he doesnt know whats wrong so he asks for the answers, cause look at the first verse, hes not defiantly gonna kill himself, hes looking for help but no one cares so this song basically means to help those who give up on life

    Some guys is depressed because his life is going down the drain. No one cares whether he lives or dies and he's yelling for some answers and he doesn't want any more pain.

    I think it means that he doesn't know what to do anymore so he's asking god to give him some answers to put him out of his misery
