I'll make my own way
I'd make my own way
Don't bother counting on me, loving me
Just stand back, I'm gone

Oh, this sorry joke
You're a joke
Is all we really need
There's nothing that I'd need

Too late and too bad
I'm stuck feeling bad
Without you, I'm a mess without you
Just don't know
This is really not a joke
You're all I really need
You're all I really need

And I'm just so bored of wasting my time
Love and death are always on my mind
And I'm just so sick of wasting my time
Love and death are always on my mind

I'll make my own way
I'd make my own way
Don't bother kissing on me, loving me
Just stand back, I'm gone

Oh, this sorry joke
You're a joke
Is all we really need
There's nothing that I'd bring

And I'm just so bored of wasting my time
Love and death are always on my mind
And I'm just so sick of wasting my time
Love and death are always on my mind

    General Comment:xx_sunshine has it closest, I reckon. Hit the nail right on the head.
    'And I'm just so bored of wasting my time
    Love and death are always on my mind'
    They're such huge, arguably unfathomable subjects, how can you even think about anything else when you get stuck in a rut thinking about them?
    And then you go around in circles because you analyze yourself analyzing love and death, and round and round it goes. How I feel at the moment, not good.

    General Comment:This song reminds me of a project I had to do on "Romeo and Juliet" for English class. We had to create a collage that would illustrate the themes "love" and "death" throughout the play.

    Love and death are both two extremes... and when they're both constantly on your mind, they plague you down until you get tired of the same ol worries and questions that you're asking yourself. How do you take your mind off of issues that are so intense? You get fed up with it, and you start feeling whirls of emotions for the two different themes that are combined, like they are becoming the same subject.

    General Comment:I love how ironic and contradictory these guys are, they make one statement and then directly contradict it with the next line

    "is all we really need
    there's nothing that i'd need"

    Not in a bad way but in a sort of sarcastic and slightly uncertain way

    General Comment:When I hear it, I think he by wasting time, he means doing the day-to-day bullshit like working or going to school when at the same time you're trying to have a fulfilling life and worrying about finding love and avoiding death.

    General Comment:Avoiding death? No way.
    What I got from this, even the way he's singing it, he's ready to die. It sounds to me like he's only just going through empty motions right now, waiting for the right time to kill himself. And this one girl who he once loved is making it really hard for him, because she's the only thing that's standing between him and suicide. And when it comes to that, he can't decide which he wants more.
