There's no hope of helping us,
we've only just begun.
We're youth eternal,
nothing more to become.
A thousand lights are burning from both ends.
We're proud of reputations we all own.
Together forever.
Rejected but never alone.
Together forever.
I'd purify the world with one primal scream,
but no one would listen.
Keep dark secrets to myself,
because no one else will talk to me.
It's hard for me to comprehend,
they couldn't understand all the thoughts going through our heads.
With a smile they tore us up,
now look what we've become.
Finally we are numb.
No need to.
No need to feel.
I've got a nothingness and that's all that's real.
No need to cut the numbness inside.
No need to.
No need to hear.
What you've got to say means nothing at all.
I've got no distance left to fall.

    General CommentI don't think this is just about teens, but freaks in general.

    General CommentI think this song is about how teens feel like they are being discrimated against and there's no one they can talk to about their problems. If they try to ask a question concerning their problem, everyone will think they're nuts. So they remain silent and in pain.
    The only line I'm a little lost on is "A thousand lights are burning from both ends"

    General CommentYou're all wrong. Aspirin, also known as APAP is the other thing in most opiate pain medications like vicodin (hydrocodone). Vicodin is hydrocodone with APAP in it, which in some cases is aspirin, or tylenol. This song is about opiate painkillers. And to think half of you thought it was about getting high on aspiring? What the fuck.
