Made the toast,
Burnt the eggs,
Never got the hang of them,
Just another other day.

Caught the bus,
Forgot the change,
Looks like I'll be late again,
Hopefully they won't complain.

My lifes so pitiful,
Give me one good reason why I shouldn't end it all,
If there's a reason then I haven't found it yet.

And I'll try every drug I find,
Except maybe heroin and cyanide,
But there's a reason I just can't afford it yet.
Oh, it's just another overdose

Went to work,
Saw you there,
But you never seem to care,
For a single thing I say.

I set the clock and went to sleep,
This anxiety I keep,
Through another fucking day.

(Looks like that's all today i'm dying)

My lifes so pitiful,
Give me one good reason why I shouldn't end it all,
If there's a reason then I haven't found it yet.

And I'll try every drug I find,
Except maybe heroin and cyanide,
But there's a reason I just can't afford it yet.
Oh, it's just another overdose.

My life's so pitiful..
Pitiful..
Pitiful..
Pitiful..
Pitiful..

My lifes so pitiful,
Give me one good reason why I shouldn't end it all,
If there's a reason then I haven't found it yet.

And I'll try every drug I find,
Except maybe heroin and cyanide,
But there's a reason I just can't afford it yet.

Well my life's so pitiful.
My life's so pitiful.
My life's so pitiful.
I'm dying.

    This song really reminds me of the movie/book Secret Window...

    A guy who, maybe, was left by his girlfriend/wife and now cannot cope with his life anymore. Everything becomes so senseless. He stopped living, isn't even able to do the easiest things .. and at that point he realizes that he has nothing left to live for.

    Good song, though a rather depressing one.

    I think it's about how he's really depressed now that someone, I'm guessing an old girlfriend, is out of his life now. And he's saying how his life is so pitiful now, like he can't even make breakfast, or remember to bring bus money.

    So he wants to end his life, and he's basically saying "I can't see why I shouldn't, do you?" And he's so depressed that he's using drugs to try and cope, and he's not doing those ones, sure, but he's saying don't be fooled: he's not doing it out of concern for himself, it's just because he can't afford them at the time being.

    Then he goes on to say how he saw her, but that she doesn't care about anything that has to do with him. Maybe, and I'm not at all sure about this bit at all, but I'm thinking that he's saying she doesn't care that he's got addicted to drugs and that he's suicidal... Now on to something I'm more sure about, he's saying next that usually when someone heas a bad day, they think 'I'll be better in the morning', but he's saying that he knows he wont be better. And he says "that's all", like "that's all my life is now. Nothing much; pitiful." He feels like he's dying, or is seriously thinking of suicide at this point.

    And then it goes back to how pitiful his life is, the drug abuse, and then he emphasizes how pitiful it is in a way by just repeating 'pitiful' over and over.

    So there's my take on this song. I really like it, and Sick Puppies is just awesome. =]

    i think it talks about: he is so depressed with his life nothing is different it's all the same "pitiful" , and he doesn't see any reason to keep living, is just every day the same fucking routine. and he can't stand that, so he says to someone give them a reason something for him, because if there is a reason for him doesn't end with his life he didn't found them yet. and he need, because with that life that he is taking his dying .
