Up in smoke, this is a joke, isn't it?
All your fault, you went to far, call it quits.
No one knew, or dared to prove, came and went.
Moving on, chance is gone, throw a fit.

Chorus:
So it's through, nothing's left to lose
It's lucky too, I need a tighter noose.

You're so weak, beat up a geek, makes you come clean
Not so tough, I've had enough, now we'll leave
Getting away, one more day, 'till then I'll sleep
All I need's a chance to bleed, only they fear

[Chorus]

I know who you are
I know where you're going

[Chorus]

I need a tighter noose x4
A tighter noose...

    General Commenti think it's pretty clear that this song is about suicide hence "noose",
    but these lyrics are wrong.. it's :

    Up in smoke
    This is a joke
    Isn't it
    All your fault
    You went too far
    Call it quits
    No one knew
    The dare to prove
    Came and went
    Moving on
    Chance is gone
    Throw a fit

    So it's through
    Nothing's left to lose
    It's lucky too
    Who needs a tighter noose

    You're so weak
    Beat up a geek
    Makes you complete
    Not so tough
    I've had enough
    Now I leave
    Getting away
    One more day
    Till then I'll sleep
    All I need's
    A chance to bleed
    On me they feed

    So it's through
    Nothing's left to lose
    It's lucky too
    Who needs a tighter noose x2


    I know who you are
    I know where you're going

    So it's through
    Nothing's left to lose
    It's lucky too
    Who needs a tighter noose x4
    a tighter noose

    General CommentThose song lyrics submitted are wrong!

    Anyway, the song is about breaking out on your own (like Tommy did with The Eels).

    General Commenttequila's lyrics are right, I think. I think it's about getting dumped. Translating the lyrics to what it means to me:

    The relationship's all done
    It's hard to believe
    Isn't it?
    You said "It's not you it's me"
    "I'm not ready"
    and ended it.
    Had anyone told me
    that we were about to break up...
    but now it's done.
    So... forward.
    It's done now.
    and I'm left pissing in the wind.

    So it's through
    and I'm free to say whatever I like, as if it matters.
    Hey, at least it ended now...
    before anyone got really hurt. (sarcasm)

    You're so weak
    I was vulnerable and you squashed me
    Feel better, now?
    I'm not going to try to 'be strong' and play the martyr.
    I won't pine for you.
    I'm dumping you, too.
    I'm going to go away for now,
    I'll get my stuff tomorrow.
    Today I want to be numb.
    All I need is
    time to let myself hurt.
    While fake friends 'show concern', tasting the pain, entertained by the drama.

    So it's through
    and I'm free to say whatever I like, as if it matters.
    Hey, at least it ended now...
    before anyone got really hurt. (sarcasm)

    But we both know who you are
    and that this won't conquer your demons.

    So it's through
    and I'm free to say whatever I like, as if it matters.
    Hey, at least it ended now...
    before anyone got really hurt. (sarcasm)
