Wish I was too dead to cry
My self-affliction fades
Stones to throw at my creator
Masochists to which I cater
You don't need to bother;
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on,
I won't let go 'til it bleeds

Wish I was too dead to care
If indeed I cared at all
Never had a voice to protest
So you fed me shit to digest
I wish I had a reason;
My flaws are open season
For this, I gave up trying
One good turn deserves my dying

You don't need to bother;
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on,
I won't let go 'til it bleeds

[Solo: Corey]

Wish I'd died instead of lived
A zombie hides my face
Shell forgotten
With it's memories
Diaries left
With cryptic entries

And you don't need to bother;
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on,
I won't let go 'til it bleeds

You don't need to bother;
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on:
I'll never live down my deceit

    I believe he's had too many hard too times and he just wants to cease to exist, but someone keeps trying to help him. He's eventually just gonna completely ignore them and just fade away.

    I means to me that i am falling further away from conforming with society. And that makes me the sole reason for my mistakes

    To let someone know it's okay to let go of you if they don't or can't love you like they should

    Seems like alot of things that this person hasn't done and a lot of regrets that leads to feelings of not "bothering" or alllowing someone to care
