"Career Suicide" as written by Mercedes Lander and Morgan Lee Lander....
Vindiction bleeds you
From every pore
Until hope runs out
Until my feet leave the
The first trace of
That too familiar feeling
Smiles and daggers
Hearts and bleeding

Don't say no
I'll soon know

Convictions see you through
Are you all you know?

Your faded costume is
Wearing thin
Was there no comfort in
Your own skin?
You always were slow
Learner inside your ugly
Living lies
Tell yourself that
Next time you cry

Don't go
Don't go
Don't do it

    General CommentThe name aside, I think it's about somebody who is depressed and suicidal, but acts happy for the sake of others, and Morgan is saying she can see what she's doing. In reference to the name, Life is often seen as a Career:

    "Vindiction bleeds you from every pore until hope runs out, until my feet leave the floor"
    The reasons to die are there, and the girl is feeling so helpless about it all
    "The first trace of that too familiar feeling
    Smiles and daggers, hearts are bleeding"
    The familiar feeling of depression and the fact that every smile and every feeling from others is just painful to her

    "Don't say no, I'll soon know"
    Morgan's saying "don't tell me that you're not suicidal, cos I will find out, even if it's thru the hard way"

    "Convictions see you through - are you all you know?"
    The certainty that she wants to die it what sees her through all the pain, and Morgan is saying "is that all there is to you?"

    "Your faded costume is wearing thin - was there no comfort in your own skin?"
    The act of happiness that this girl is putting on isn't fooling Morgan, and she's wondering if the girl was ever happy with herself
    "You always were a slow learner inside your ugly living lies"
    The girl was always slow to realize that nobody ever really believed she was happy and all the lies she told to cover it up didn't work
    "Tell yourself that next time you cry"
    Self explanitory...

    "Don't go, don't go, don't do it"
    Morgan's saying not to commit suicide...

    General CommentSeeing as this song was released on UNTIL THE END, years after Talena left the band, I doubt that. The girls aren't exactly best of friends with Talena anymore. Anyway, that rumour about her trying to kill herself on a bus is total bullshit... it was painful trying to read your comment anyway...

    General Commentyeah, i think it's about talena but it seems to be in a regative light, and i think the suicide thing is more metaphorical than that.

    instead of 'social suicide' it's 'career suicide' meaning that she did something to make her unpopular in her career, I E the band.

    they say she was a slow learner.
