"Save Yourself" as written by Marcus Eliopulos, Walter Flakus, Christopher Hall, James Eric Sellers and Andy Kubiszewski....
I know your life is empty
And you hate to face this world alone
So you're searching for an angel
Someone who can make you whole

I can not save you
I can't even save myself
So just save yourself

I know that you've been damaged
Your soul has suffered such abuse
But I am not your savior
I am just as fucked as you

I can not save you
I can't even save myself
So just save yourself

Please don't take pity on me
Please don't take pity on me
Please don't take pity on me
Please don't take pity on me

My life has been a nightmare
My soul is fractured to the bone
If I must be lonely
I think I'd rather be alone (I think I'd rather be alone)

You can not save me
You can't even save yourself

I can not save you
I can't even save myself
Save yourself
So just save yourself

    General CommentThis song is pretty self-explanitory. This is a really great song, though.

    General Commentwow. this so is sooo great. I think its talking about how lots of ppl have been through bad expieriences in their lives and its talking about how I know you've been hurt and u need my help, but I cant help because I've been through the same crap and can't save myself. or something to that degree. Not to sure. Still think its a great song!

    General Commentto me this song is about how people are asking you for help for thinhs and your just like hell why ask me i need help 2. Death kinda said this so basically im just agreeing with him. I also think that a big part of this song is saying i didnt ask to help you, im going through it by myself, why dont you try it, dont come to me with your crap.

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me. I don't want people's pity or anything like that. I have been through shit and I am still suffering, don't think I can help you out when you are down if you can't help yourself. That's basically what is says to me. Extremely self explanitory through the lyrics. They were VERY blunt with this song and that's what makes it so great.

    General Commenti love this song.. i blast it on my stereo all the time.. i think the songs about how someone wants your help so they can save themself.. but at the same time your trying to save yourself.. so ur no help at all.. but like the other person said.. its pretty self explanatory..
    ~*hey anyone who likes SW email me.. i love them*~
