"Sick Of Life" as written by and Salvatore P. Erna....
Paralyzed. Nothing's getting through to me.
Hypnotized from all my surroundings.
I want to be something I could never be.
I want to say things that I could never say.
Yeah, I'm gonna do it again!

Sick of my life. I'm tired of everything in my life.

Dragged down. Rubbing my face in the ground.
No time for the undecided.
I want to know why I've always felt alone,
And I want to love. Why am I untouchable?
Yeah, I'm gonna do it again!

Sick of my life. I'm tired of everything in my life.
I never wanted to be sick of my life.
I'm tired of everything in my life

    General CommentNot to state the obvious but everyone is correct. The song was written during Godsmacks tour for their self-titles album. On tour everyone felt horrible from being on the road so much and missing their family. Thus Sick of Life was simply Sully's way of expressing how he felt while being on tour for so long.

    General CommentWhat's so hard about this? The guy is pissed of about his life and everything that is happening in it and no matter how bad he wants to stop hurting himself he's gonna do it again, and again, and again. Best song on the CD.

    General CommentThis song is really about the guy who is pissed. He hates his life and can't work out why he's always constantly being rejected.

    General CommentThis song is about how he's sick of the fame and the pressure of being a group that "made it" he's just sick of all the shit he's gotta do and how he cant be who he wants to be due to the bussiness

    General CommentYou are all right in the sense that the song is about him being sick of everything, but there is more. I wrote a song like this, and when I heard this one, I saw the relation between mines and Sully's, I think they both have the same meaning. That meaning being that although you try to change, and try to be the person you want to be, you keep messing up and keep on doing it wrong and wrong and wrong, and sometimes you just feel sick of your self and sick of life, although I think life is a place of beauty waiting to be explored! :-)
