"Hate This Place" as written by and John Rzeznik....
Gone away
Who knows where you been
But you take all your lies
And wish them all away

I somehow doubt
We'll ever be the same
There's too much poison
And confusion on your face

Can you feel it?
I didn't mean it
Can I see you?
What are we doin'?
I think I love you
But I ain't sayin'
Nothin' you don't know

Hold on dreamaway
You're my sweet charade

Take your time
Move yourself to me
Yeah, I can take your lies
Until you fall away

You know I'm lost
Hiding in your bed
No, I don't think it's wrong
It's just gone to my head

Can you feel it?
I didn't mean it
Can I see you?
What are we doin'?
I think I love you
But I ain't sayin'
Nothin' you don't know

Hold on dreamaway

    General CommentHey now...maybe that's what it means to them! It can mean a NUMBER of different things to different people. That what's so awesome about lyrics and music -- is that it's so versatile.

    This song has great vocals, though I'm not sure what I think it means yet...I'll come back when I can put my thoughts into words! All I can say so far is that the lyrics are good, the vocals are good...as well as the music. I love when John sings:

    "Hold on dreamaway.
    You're my sweet charade."

    General CommentI think this song is so beautiful it's insane... Definitely one of most amazing songs ever written... To me, it seems like this song is about an very insecure relationship between two people.. Almost as if the person singing doesn't know the other person well enough for their relationship to be realistic (to him, the other person is a sweet charade)... I dunno but that's the way i see it.. ;)

    General Commentyano, i love it, but it sounds to me like its a song abt running away from everything, not just from a certain place, but from a whole way of life, because he hates the amount of lies in the world....

    General Commenti think this song is about a guy who likes this girl but he is not sure if she likes him as she is giving him the wrong signs( sweet charade)...so what it means is he is stuck in the friend zone ..so i guess the place is the friend zone, meaning he hates being in the friend zone...yea ??

    General CommentIt's a mix of both the place he's at and his relationship. He loves this girl but doesn't understand why she does the things she does. So their on a rollercoaster. Up and down up and down. He hates the place their at right now.
