It's 8 AM, this Hell I'm in
Seems I've crossed the line again
For being nothing more than who I am
So break my bones and throw your stones
We all know that life ain't fair
But there is more of us, we're everywhere

We don't have to take this, back against the wall
We don't have to take this, we can end it all

All you'll ever be is a fading memory of a bully
Make another joke while they hang another rope, so lonely
Push them to the dirt till the words don't hurt
Can you hear me?
No one's gonna cry on the very day you die
You're a bully

Think it through, you can't undo
Whenever I see black and blue
I feel the past, I share the bruise
With everyone who's come and gone
My head is clear, my voice is strong, now I'm right here to right the wrong

We don't have to take this, back against the wall
We don't have to take this, we can end it all

All you'll ever be is a fading memory of a bully
Make another joke while they hang another rope, so lonely
Push them to the dirt till the words don't hurt
Can you hear me?
No one's gonna cry on the very day you die
You're a bully

(Solo)

It's 8 AM, the Hell I'm in!
Your voice is strong, now right the wrong!

All you'll ever be is a fading memory of a bully
Make another joke while they hang another rope, so lonely
Push them to the dirt till the words don't hurt
Can you hear me?
No one's gonna cry on the very day you die
You're a bully

All you'll ever be is a fading memory of a bully
Make another joke while they hang another rope, so lonely
Push them to the dirt till the words don't hurt
Can you hear me?
No one's gonna cry on the very day you die
You're a bully

We don't have to take this, back against the wall
We don't have to take this, we can end it all (x4)

    Bulying hurts people just like the way people hurt you. Why do you people take your anger out on other people? To those of you who bully other people for fun or because someone hurt you, you're making those same people that you have bullied are cutting themselves and comiting suicide because of you. So how does that make you feel? Do you want those people to do the very same things that you do and say to them to be said to you? You people just make me sick. I mean to do that to another human being? To hate on someone else just because their different is just wrong! You people should just quit! Just quit being stupid and mean! Treat people the way you want to be treated! People are hurting themselves because of you! Thousands have started hurting themselves and hundreds have comited suicide all because of either what you said or because of something that you have done to them! Do you do it because you were beaten or bullied when you were younger or is it just because you just that cruel to other people? Its not cool at all. Things like the Colombine Shooting happened all because two people were bullied. Do you people just enjoy being cruel? Lots of kids and adults were killed during the Colombine Shooting. Would you want to be one of those kids that were killed? If you don't then I would suggest that you stop bullying and blaming other people because of what you have done. I would like to put an end to bullying as well as thousands of others do. Just stop now.

    Honestly, from my point of view this song is basically saying you don't have to put up with bullying and that bullies are nothing. They are just doing what they do so that way they can feel stronger. Eventually, they are going to realize that they are and possibly always will be a nothing. At the moment they don't care because it's not them getting picked on so they keep on.

    I was getting bullied at school and i stood up to him after he put me in a choke hold and i passed out so my friends got him of me and i told him how it was and now he leaves me alone and i told all the kids at school that they need to stand up for themselves. I think that when you stand up for them they at least leave you alone for awhile and i told all my friends that they need to stand up for them selves and they will be fine for awhile and that they should not bully other people them selves because they were picked on to. Now everybody stands up for themselves and i think that it is so awesome and they all think it is to. Now basically nobody gets picked on anymore because of me.

    Wellt, still you didnt get the song. It's about not caring about being bullied, because life goes on, and when you've got the beign bullied spawn of time in your life behind you, there is no influence on you, anymore

    I was bullied when i was younger... I stood up to them and i gained the power. You need to stand up to them and show them that you are stronger than they give you credit for. I see so many things on the news from children getting plastic surgery because they are being bullied constantly and that is just not right. If you see someone being bullied help them out and stand up to that bully for them... Sometimes being bullied makes the victim end there life because nobody stood up for them and that is very wrong...
