I had to sing this for me
Watch myself pilloried
Ugly, scruffy, no one
But then I guess that you knew
Nasty, bitter, enraged
A nice polite English way
Full circle, desensitised
I'm right back where I began

Hated, broken

The dead flowers reject
Sad Glaucoma in mist
Injustice wells up in me
We are shit and refuse

Hated, broken

It's what it's like to be hated
I am afflicted and ill
It's what it's like to be hated
I wrote this song for myself

We are shit and refuse
To wallow in rejection
My will is shattered again
My leeches, parasite friends
No mans an island they said
I breathe my solitary air
Explain myself to no one
Beautiful, sad solitude

Hated, broken

Learn to ignore all the slurs
You can get used to all things

Hated, broken

It's what it's like to be hated
I am afflicted and ill
It's what it's like to be hated
I wrote this song for myself

Piss in the face of the sick
Unjust vendetta's uncool
Unjust, unwanted, reject
Uninformed, understood
A silence broken my will
Afflicted, shattered and sick
Popularity stakes, overrated you said

It's what it's like to be hated, I am afflicted and ill
(Isolation you feel, like a utopian state)
(To be this liked is to be suffocated)
It's what it's like to be hated, I wrote this song for myself
(You said beauty, sadness, enraged of solitude can you bare)
(Disturbed, unwanted at birth, the fucking joke that we are)
It's what it's like to be hated, I am afflicted and ill
(I've never had any friends, could be a sweet suicide)
(A fucking homo in flesh, too weak to protest)
It's what it's like to be hated, I wrote this song for myself

    General CommentI learned these lyrics off by heart when i was 11 years old, they speak for themselves: what it's like to be hated.....
    Anyone who's checking these lyrics must take heed of the line 'beautiful, sad solitude' ...being alone with your own thoughts is the most contenting, frustrating thing in the wolrld.
