"Angels With Dirty Faces" as written by Deryck Jason Whibley and Greig Andrew Nori....
I need this to get me through
Can't resist and don't want to
Believe it I know it's true
I can't beat and don't want to try

Perfect hell

It's more to me than you ever will know
Down here where the rest of us fell
Waste away with nothing left to show
While I'm in this perfect hell

Obsession has begun
Possessed by destruction
How did I get so low
Believe me no one knows
Sometimes I can't hold on
And no one can help me

Now it's got a hold of me
I don't think I can make it through this
Now it's got a hold of me
The less I do the more it makes no sense

I'm walking pollution who's drained by delusions
On the verge of destruction I cave in to abduction
Thin blood I'm bleeding my pulse won't stop racing
Just as my heart explodes

No chance that I could win
Too hard to not give in
I just don't feel the same
Cause I'm the one to blame
Sometimes I can't hold on
And no one can help me


I need this to be myself
It feels like I need some help
It's too late to save myself
Or it's just in my head

[Chorus: x2]

    General Commenti love this song. the lyrics are pretty self explantory. i love when bands are away for a bit and come back with such kickass cds. this cd rocks. did you hear the drums right after this part:

    I need this to be myself
    it feels like I need some help
    it's too late to save myself
    or it's just in my head

    General Commentthis song is like a couple of sum's others, it's about drug useage and how it pulls you down.
    and that no matter how hard you try, it wil follow you.
    also, there are always going to be the people that push you and argue with you.......they dont mean it in a bad way, they just want to help.

    one of there most understandable songs.

    General Commentthis might be about drug usage..

    but to me, it's about anorexia, bulimia, ednos...(eatting disorders)

    but that's just how i view it, and my view probably isn't correct, but yhea...

    General CommentI don't much care for that intro but the rest of it is kick-ass. I'm sure it's about drug usage.

    General CommentThis CD rocked. The song itself, just as everyone else said, is about an addiction (or maybe a habit??). The way its written, it could be an addiction to anything. I think it is about drugs, because, he can't stop using them, and he doesnt want to stop using them. Also, the title, "angels with dirty faces" sorta hints that its something that could be good(angels) but then it would not be as good as it first seemed (dirty faces). Eh, I should be studying. Sorry if this comment seemed weird or anything.
