"Damaged" as written by and Morgan J./hornsby Rose....
Didn't you hurt yourself
Couldn't you wash the blood away
Didn't you love yourself
Couldn't you see the truth
Didn't why you wake to see the light
Couldn't you hear the truth

(god you're so shameless)
Stand up to me I know what you'll say
(god you're so shameless)
Why don't you wake up and stop all the pain

How could you really know as your
Blood flows
The damage left inside
If you should ever see the pain in me
You'd wish it away

Didn't you hurt yourself
Didn't you love yourself
Couldn't you find yourself
Such a shame it's a waste of a life
Couldn't you save yourself

How could you really know

How could you really know as your
Blood flows
The damage left inside
If you should ever see the pain in me
You'd wish it away

How could you really know as your
Blood flows
The damage left inside
If you should ever see the pain in me
You'd wish it away

How could you really know as your
Blood flows
The damage left inside
If you should ever see the pain in me
You'd wish it away

How could you really know as your
Blood flows
The damage left inside
If you should ever see the pain in me
You'd wish it away

    General CommentTo me this song seams to be about suicide. It sounds like Lajon is asking someone while they lie in thier coffin how they could do this, and if only they could see the pain they've caused they would wish they'd never done such a thing.

    General Commenti think the song is bout a person who did a mistake (need not to be suicide) its just the mistake and Lajon charges him (god you´re so shameles`) dont you think???

    General CommentSounds more along the lines of what kruemel is saying. It's probably about how someone was hurt. And the hurter didn't truly know how much he/she hurt the other person. "If you should ever see the pain in me, you'd wish it away." Probably implies that there's still some care involved in their relationship, and if that person could see how much the other person had been hurt, they'd try and make amends.

    General CommentThe fact Lajon is asking "Didn't you love yourself?" and also said "Such a shame it's a waste of a life", it seems more inclined to being what SovereignDragon said, but I can see how you could see it as a general mistake, not necessarily suicide.

    General Commentladdd wtf SovereignDragon???? how can blood flow if tha person is dead in ther coffin???? yea exactly i dont exactly know wat its about but i know that thats wrong lol but to me it seems to be about some1 cutting themselves, some1 whos completly changed from this perfect normal person to this dark depressed thing...thats why his asking "didnt u love urself?" becauz why would u do something like that if u loved urself...an i think ther obviously in a relationship or hav a good friendship becauz his like "god ur so shameless, why dont u wake up an stop all tha pain" an yea he..he its my favourite song!!! along with x-mas day an live again lol.

    General Commentwell i may be able to take you seriously if you didn't use numbers in the middles of words and insist that the letter 'u' is a word.

    General Commentthis song is about suicide and how it affected the persons still living friends and family. the "blood flowing" part is while they are still in the process of killing themselves and their blood is leaving their body. the song is in part past part present tense. jeez. great song.

    General CommentGreat song. People who commit suicide aren't thinking rationally and they never think about the people they leave behind. "How could you really know?" Lajon sings at the end in an anguished voice. Awesome.

    General CommentJust my 2 cents, but i think this is a love song. Along the lines that true love needs dedication and hard work to make it happen. On person gives up and it's causing pain on the other. The person who gave up doesn't realize the pain he/she caused. He is telling the person to wake up and be strong for what they want. Thats just my idea though.
