I'm not angry,
I'm just amused at your quest for attention
through your self abuse.
The only response that you get for your pleasis sorely
less than sympathy.
What reason is there to be alive?
When the word is against you how can you survive?
All your friends are apathetic at best,
and your entire life is a total mess.
Give it a fuckin' rest.
You can't feel me, feel,
I'm scarred so deep.
No one needs me.
Could you please leave me alone?
I'm sorry to hear that your world's sinking fast
and you've lost your stable ground
and I'm sorry to add to your disappointment,
but I won't be brought down.
I'm not angry,
I'm just amused at all the dramatics you love to use,
but one thing I have noticed that is strange to me is
that you're not content until you're brought down,
and you're always so alone because you can't be found.
You're soul is black and you're filled with hate.
How much more can you possible take?
Give me a fuckin' break.

    General CommentI don't understand how no one could comment on this song. It's got to be one of their BEST! I've grown so attatched to this song. I love it! It's pretty self-explanatory so there's no need for me to try to interpret it. It seems odd that someone like me would appreciate this song so much. I'm always putting myself down and I get depressed pretty often. Recently, I even cut myself when my boyfriend broke up with me. I don't know if I did it for attention, but I did it. Anyway, this song kicks ass, so does AFI. I saw them in concert two days ago. I've seen them 4 times now and they never disappoint me. They're so amazing and Davey is fukin hot! (just thought I'd add that in there).

    General Commentthis song speaks of how people hurt themselves for attention.

    it's strange cuz by shut your mouth he's began to do stuff to himself, you know?

    but yeah, i know people like that. there's people who cut and all. and then there's people who cut and then go TELLING everyone. people who don't know who they are...

    General CommentThis is a very powerful song, lyrically.
    There's such an overtone of sarcasm; Davey is expressing his discontent for another, perhaps a previous lover, who seeks 'attention'.
    "I'm not angry, I'm just amused" I love those lines, they're such polarities, but it works well.

    Ironically AFI often refers to being 'lonely', however in this one he is basically saying "get over it".
