"Nobody Came" as written by Benjamin David Gillies and Daniel Paul Johns....
Laying lost and wounded
Just myself to blame
Have no life and
Being hand fed pain
Head's a crying wasteland
Filled with shame
Cried for help before and
Nobody came

His father beats him
No hesitation
His face left dripping
In humiliation

As he lies wounded
His father turns to clay
A frozen statue
Can't walk away

His head's a crying wasteland
Filled with shame
Cried for help before and
Nobody came

To see what I can lose again
For being the victim

No

    General CommentI think it is about domestic violence, like the above people have all said (I think...:S) and how nobody has come to save me.

    But, I do find the first verse:

    "Laying lost and wounded
    Just myself to blame
    Have no life and
    Being hand-fed pain"

    Similar to my own life, even though it wasn't the meaning intended, I don't think.

    "Laying lost and wounded" - When I am lying in bed at night, cutting myself.

    "Just myself to blame" - It IS just myself to blame. No-one has forced me to do what I do. I just want to feel more pain, because I genuinely think I deserve it.

    "Have no life and" - I really don't have a life. I don't go out anywhere fun, just to the park, or out shopping with my parents. I'm hiding behind this keyboard more than anything.

    "Being hand-fed pain" - I have been giving alot of hurt and pain in my life, which has led me to cutting myself.

    I like the control more than anything.

    I like it alot.




    Anyway, that is how I feel about the song.
