"In This World (Murder)" as written by Benji Madden and Joel Madden....
In this world all of our sins are simple
We choose death over innocent life
And in this world it's not our money that's evil
It's the one's who choose it over life
And in my heart I cannot believe in this murder
And I will not be fed by the lies
Or the life that's created just to be murdered
It's murder

No matter how hard they try and
No matter how loud they cry
They can't
Buy their way into heaven
No matter how hard they try and
No matter how high they climb up the ladder
They won't reach up into heaven

And they can't see
The innocent lives
The pointless suffering
And in my heart I want to undo all this murder
And give back their innocent life
Open cages and stop their luxurious murder
It's murder

No matter how hard they try and
No matter how loud they cry
They can't
Buy their way into heaven
No matter how hard they try and
No matter how high they climb up the ladder
They won't reach up into heaven

Murder
Innocent Life
Innocent

What have we done?
No mercy (No matter how hard they try)
For beautiful money (and no matter how loud they cry)
Money for blood (they can't buy their way into heaven)
It's murder

No matter how hard they try and
No matter how high they climb up the ladder
They won't reach up into heaven
No matter how hard they try and
No matter how loud try cry
They can't
Buy their way into heaven

    General CommentTo me it sounds like this might be about vegetarianism... I know that all or at leas most of the band members are vegetarians and the lines, "And I will not be fed by the lies, Or the lives that are created just to be murdered, its murder" & "And in my heart I wanna undo all this murder And give back the innocent lives Open cages and stop their luxurious murder Its murder" sound like they're pointing towards this...

    General CommentThis is my favorite Good Charlotte song of all time. It has a good message and it sounds awesome. I love how Joel sounds in this one, I think Benji is singing with him, Im not sure. I think the song is about all the killing that goes on in the world and how people sometimes only think about money and they let it rule their lives. It is a great song. GOOD CHARLOTTE ROCKS!!!!!!!

    General Commentit's a song that tells about our corrupt society. people will do anything for money, and all over the world, murder is a problem.

    I do like "kamino"'s idea, though, that it has to do with Jacob's Ladder.

    General Commenti think that this song is about how everyone kills everybody, and how we need to stop the murder. criminals cannot buy their way into heaven no matter how hard they try. *JOELROX!*
