"The Hell Song" as written by and Deryck Jason/nori Whibley....
Everybody's got their problems (problems)
Everybody says the same thing to you
It's just a matter how you solve them (solve them)
And knowing how to change the things you've been through

I feel I've come to realize
How fast life can be compromised
Step back to see what's goin' on
I can't believe this happened to you
This happened to you

It's just a problem that I'm faced with, am I
Not the only one who hates to stand by
Complications ended first in this line
With all these pictures running through my mind

Knowing endless, consequences
I feel so useless in this
Get back, Step back, and as for me,I can't believe

Part of me, won't agree
'Cause I dunno if it's for sure
Suddenly, suddenly
I dont feel so insecure
Anymore

Part of me, won't agree
'Cause I dunno if it's for sure
Suddenly, suddenly
I dont feel so insecure
Anymore

Everybody's got thier problems (problems)
Everybody says the same thing to you
It's just a matter how you solve them (solve them)
But what else are we s'posed to do?

Part of me, won't agree
'Cause I dunno if it's for sure
Suddenly, suddenly
I dont feel so insecure
Anymore

Part of me, won't agree
'Cause I dunno if it's for sure
Suddenly, suddenly
I dont feel so insecure
Anymore

Why do the things that matter the most
Never end up being what we chose?
Now that I find out, it ain't so bad
I don't think I knew what I had
I don't think I knew what I had

    General Comment"It's one of my favorite songs on the record, it's about this girl I used to date who I've known forever. Just last Christmas she found that she was HIV positive, and it was so brutal. She doesn't sleep around. She's only had two or three boyfriends and one of them used to cheat on her all the time, and then he got it and gave it to her. It's the heaviest thing that's happened in our group of friends." -Deryck Whibley

    General Comment" Why do things that matter the most never end up being our choice ???
    Now that I find no way so bad - I don't think I knew what I had.. "

    the 2 last sentences are as if to answer the questions -
    its not like THINGS WE VALUE THE MOST WONT BE OUR CHOICE
    but because WHEN IT IS NOT OUR CHOICE NO MORE, IT BECOMES VALUABLE

    now that i find no way so bad - now that he sees the value of things he still have them with him, he is not gonna wait until he lose it
    i don't think i know what i had - no, you don't know, really , until u lose it

    his friend got an HIV.
    Just like us, the person lived the day and went all through problems - some of those problems could have made him/her thought that s/he was unlucky at the time ..

    well, who could have been so thankful that they didn't caught HIV
    AS LONG AS THEY DON'T HAVE IT?????

    the live without the HIV which he had been thinking it sucks - becomes f**king valuable once he knew he had the HIV...( i don't think i knew what i had )

    what we have today, most of them are precious. people just cant realize it until they lose it
    could his friend who got HIV life get any worse??
    well, it could - i know it sucks to have the HIV but his life is not so bad so just cherish the moment ..
    or, wait until you lose another precious thing and realize how precious the very right now moment is

    as they say , live the day

    General CommentThis song is the 2nd single off of Sum 41's new album "Does This Look Infected?" The song is about a friend of singer/guitarist Deryck Whibley who was diagnosed HIV positive.

    General Commentthis is a great song..sum 41's cool and all when they're joking around, but even better when they're serious...i heard they had started writing the song, and then they found about their friend's diagnosis and then the song became about her

    General Commentwow. a sum 41 song with a deeper meaning than just talking about stuff as punky as possible so they will seem cool. HOW???? they must not have actually written it and had hoboes off the street pitch in each verse. lol, I like the song though.

    General CommentKind of Ironic they played this on MTV's spring break. Granted I like this song and this band. But when the song is about someone acquiring aids and you are playing it at spring break parties. It is a little ironic.
