Short story from the one who wrote this
And you're a stranger they know well

You read their mind and left your life an open book
Now you want to die in some hotel

You deserve this
You deserve this
You deserve this
You deserve this

God damn, in some respect you've earned it
Who wants to change this bogus world?

Hey mom it's me or someone on our window sill
Yell I ain't disturbing your quiet numb

If something gets lost
If something breaks, I'll be wide awake

Not that this revelation's changing anyone at all

And all of your new friends, they seem boundless
And all of that money spends you flat

I'm sure that something bad will come of this review
Some past due like karma or revenge

I deserve this
I deserve this
I deserve this
I deserve this
I deserve this
I deserve this
I deserve this
I deserve this
I deserve this
I deserve this
I deserve this
I deserve this

    General CommentThis song is all about guilt. Someone who wants so much out of life realizes that they really got what they had coming to them.

    General CommentWow. Guilt possibly. Feeling guilty that they have "wasted" their lives yet become a success. But what do you think they really believe they deserve? I think they mean death, but then again... im pretty morbid.

    General CommentThis song is about feeling like a disappointment. At the same time resenting the people you feel you've disappointed, and probably rightfully so... but it doesn't stop the guilt, and probably rightfully so.
