Another day wasted out of time
I can't get out of this
Altered state of mind
I'm going overboard
My conscience meets decline
Into reality
I know this can't be fine

[chorus]
Cause I'm all messed up
Making prefect nonsense
Drowning in my doubt too well
Cause I'm all messed up
Going nowhere fast but circles in my mind
So blind

Who are these voices in my head
I can't go on like this
Living like the dead
I haven't slept so long
Feeling sad I dread
I'm talking to myself
Forgot what I just said

[repeat chorus]

Well I hold my only enemy as closely as a friend
And I sold my own reality to further my descent

Self-destruction taking over it's so easy to pretend
Introduction to this nightmare may never end

Can anyone help me drag my heels
I'm running overtime
I can't hold down my meals
My mind is racing by
Staring blankly feels
Like pulling out my teeth
While this engine winds

[repeat chorus]

    The song is actually about a man that can’t live with his own decisions and is going crazy living with the people around him. It is probably the result of the decisions he made and that’s why the artist wrote the song this way. Sum 41 is a band with a style all their own, they write songs about what happens to them on a daily basis and how it makes them feel, and then they get together and make small changes for lyrical or rythmic purposes, and then just start performing it and they don’t care if people like it or not.
    This song doesn’t quite represent me entirely but it does a good job for now. I like this song for it’s original purpose, but also because it reminds me of how stressed and bothered i am, by these people that surround me all day. The pure disgust i have for some and the mild disapproval for the others, but there’s only a very small few that don’t irritate me. Most irritate me purely with their existence and i am angry quite often that the people i depend on or the people that hurt and enrage me the most. Making my whole life style a big mess filled with stress, anger, disappointment, pain, and a fury too powerful to be unleashed.
