"The Irony Of Dying on your Birthday" as written by and David Michael Miller Michael John Glita....
Just know
We are
A spec
In time.

So follow your bliss
And destroy the beauty

I'll lock myself alone in a room
Drink until the clock strikes noon
With just a pen, a pill, and some paper
And maybe I will write a sad song
Or another cliche poem
Of the person that I long to be

I want to die like Jim Morrison
A fucking rock star
I want to die like god on the cover of time.
Just a blink and it's gone
So baby pour some fame in my glass.

So kill the forest
And destroy the beauty.

I'll lock myself alone in a room
Drink until the clock strikes noon
With just a pen, a pill, and some paper
And maybe I will write a sad song
Or another cliche poem
Of the person that I long to be

(Colors blind)
the eyes
(Sounds deafen)
the ear
(Flavors numb)
the taste
(Thoughts weaken)
the mind

I'll attack someone with a switchblade knife
So that I can see their pain
I choose to be a serial killer
'Cause the victims don't get any fame.

I'll lock myself alone in a room
Drink until the clock strikes noon
With just a pen, a pill, and some paper
And maybe I will write a sad song
Or another cliche poem
Of the person that I long to be

Just know we are a spec in time

    General Commentomg. i have never seem such masturbation in my life. "omg isaw senses fail then and then and OMG they were so kewl i popped a boner and OMG OMG he looked right at me and OMG OMG OMG this song is so kewl the screaming makes me scream and the singing makes me sing and the guitar makes me guitar and OMG OMG OMG OMG i totally forgot taht this site is for hte benefit of those ppl that want to discuss the MEANING OF THE FUCKING SONG. im sorry. i was a little more harsh than i should have been, and this song is hot like a pornstar. aside from being explanatory (sorry the rest of the world isnt at your intellectual level where they can look at a song and figure out its meaning. one of these days ill get around to bowing down to you, ruler of wisdom and smartest of the smart), the song is about wanting fame, not wanting it, and the contradictory feelings. his desires reach the point where he wants to kill someone just to attain his goals. in a sense then, this is a comment on society and its values.

    General Commentcalm the fuck down donut, christ quit reading so deep into shit. All i meant was that the lyrics are direct therefore it was self explanatory, jesus christ you fucking contradiction, you mock everyone for the love they have for a song then you go on to to say that its "hot like a pornstar" fucking idiot.

    "Colors blind
    The eyes"
    and
    "Flavors numb
    The taste"
    there should be
    "Sounds deafen
    The ear"

    General CommentA-fucking-men to donutman.

    a). This is called SONGMEANINGS.NET... not howmuchyoulovethissong.net

    b). no one wants to hear your teeny fucking rants about how great they are and OMG i saw them 22987398475 times they they're soooo kewl!!!!

    c). I agree with donut man as to what this song is about, but I take it in a slightly different view. I see it as: everyone who is in a band wants to have "fame" so to say, but "fame" nowadays is being an MTV bitch and bowing down to the masses and not doing what you want. So basically he's saying he wants fame, but not that shitty fame where you have to do everything "they" tell you, but basically, you won't get fame unless you DO do that, so it's all just a big contradiction. In the end he's saying instead of selling out, why not just kill someone, cause he'll get his fame then.

    I personally find that this song is a metaphor for the sad state of the music industry today.
