Chaos, is just the beginning
Every promise I made I'm ascending
Stab the knives in the middle of the monster
I'm getting tired of drowning in concern

Crying for help
Isn't paid in full
The only reason that you love me is
I'm hated by all

Come on!
Come see destruction
I guess we're gonna leave it
Open for discussion

Who am I?
Where am I going?

Maybe I'm looking in the wrong direction
Maybe I'm looking for any direction

This is not my world
This is not my fate
This is something more
This is not my life
This is not my revolution
This is not my convolution
This is not my expectation
This is not my desperation

(yeah!)

Rolled up thoughts and dig for the hell of it
Look at me, I am the glorified mahlcotect
Save me, save this
All I got to do is give up
And I always fuck giving up
Sic!

I've been the plot of a cosmic joke
And I don't get the punchline
A million people lined up for miles
To see the great big nil

Shut up and apologize!

This is not my world
This is not my fate
This is something more
This is not my life

This is not my revolution
This is not my convolution
This is not my only reason to question why

Today I'll say goodbye!
Goodbye!
Oh I didn't need to leave
To stay right here
Today I'll say goodbye!
Goodbye!
Oh I didn't need to leave
To stay right here
Today I'll say goodbye!
Goodbye!
Oh I didn't need to leave
To stay right here
Today I'll say goodbye!
Goodbye!
Oh I didn't need to leave
To stay right here
Today I'll say goodbye!

(yeah!)

I'm the parade (break me)
I am no like (save me)
I can't take anything (make me)
Accuse me of everything (kill me)

Cut off the system (slay me)
Deny my existence (waste me)
I won't be afraid (try me)
I won't be unmade (take me!)

Come on!
Break it all
Come on!
Buy the lie
Come on!
Say it, say it!
Come on!
Say goodbye!

Goodbye!
Oh I didn't need to leave
To stay right here
Today I'll say goodbye!
Goodbye!
Oh I didn't need to leave
To stay right here
Today I'll say goodbye!
Goodbye!
Oh I didn't need to leave
To stay right here
Today I'll say goodbye!
Goodbye!
Oh I didn't need to leave
To stay right here
Today I'll say goodbye!

One (one)
Two (two)
Three (three)
Nil!

Yes!

    General CommentWho the fuck is this NeutralPunkGuy person, and how did he manage to fuck up the lyrics to EVERY song off the new album. Because I'm lazy, I won't point them all out, but here for example, the lines are actually:
    I'm the PARIAH (Break Me)
    I am THE LIAR (Save Me)
    I can't take anything (Make Me)
    Accuse me of everything (TAKE Me)

    Cut off the system (SHAPE Me)
    Deny my existance (WASTE Me)
    I won't be afraid (Try Me)
    I won't be unmade (DENY Me!)

    And that's all straight from the lyrics that came with the the CD. There's a number of other errors in this song, and a ton in every other song from Vol 3. as well. If you're going to post the lyrics, do it right or don't do it at all, Jerky!

    General Commentfirst off i agree with bored 1 the SM bored is not supposed to be a board for hate

    Now for what i think the song means

    i think the song is about questioning who is really truly behind you as far as friendship a lot of paranoia seems to come across in this song he wonders why no one ever told him everyone could be so decietful im guessing he got backstabbed by a close friend or possibkly a gf he is completely lost without that person and now he doesnt know what to do so he contemplates suicide

    General CommentOne of the worst songs on "the subliminal verses". It totaly changes on the "Goodbye" part and it sounds pretty fucked to me. I like the lyrics though, I think it's about realizing that your whole world is something that you don't really know anymore, and your'e fighting for something you don't really care about.

    Half of the lyrics here are wrong anyway.

    General Comment"This is not my WAR,
    This is not my FIGHT,
    This is something more,
    This is not my LIFE."

    This song is about getting away from negative people who keep trying to judge you, (in this case about beliefs.) It goes for everyone, if you don't like who I am and what I believe in then get the FUCK away from me or at least don't bring it up! I left your (religion, life style, or even simple minded way of looking at life) for a reason, I don't want to fight about it anymore.

    General Commentwell besides the mistakes - not his fault - heres what Three Nil is about: Its basically about helplessness and a loss of respect that is happening. "Maybe im looking in the wrong direction", "Every promise i make, Im recinding" and "Cry for help". Shows someone is in pain. Lost and helpless, needing to try something new as everything in the past that Corey has tried has never worked. You can say that near enough to the end of the song, realisation becomes apparent and that its time to get help. No hope - need help from others. Catchy as fuck and awesome!
