I have told
All of my enemies,
Very polietly,
To go home.
I have seen
All of your remedies,
Now won't you let me, please,
Go home?

I can't find anything to be sad about,
They say I'm doomed, but I feel fine

I have tried
So very hard as hell
To stay away from hell,
And live upstairs.
But when I see
All of your remedies,
I try quite desperately
To go home.

I can't find anything to be sad about,
They say I'm doomed, but I feel fine.
But if I'm sitting here lonely with no one to hold me,
At least I'll have my health.
I'm trying to control myself.

I have told
All of my enemies,
Very polietly,
To go home.
I have seen
All of your remedies,
Now won't you let me, please,
Go home?

I've been acting irresponsibly,
But what could possibly go wrong?
I have choked on all your remedies,
Now won't you let me, please,
Go home?

But if I sit here lonely,
With no one to hold me,
At least I'll have my health.
I'm trying to control myself.

I'm trying to control
Myself.

    General CommentNaaah, I actually thought it was Control Myself?

    And I realized it was Kara's Flowers AFTER posting the lyrics. x-x; I thought it was one of those unreleased songs. I tend to do that a lot.

    Apologies! :O

    General CommentDon't any of you people feel this is the right song to when you feel hell pissed off? For me it does. I mean, when you want to be alone when you're frustrated, isn't the most annoying question anyone could ask is "are you okay?" when they know that you're not feelin so hot. Jeez they know what the expression on your face is!

    General CommentI think this song is about being drunk. Like, you see the girl you're secretly in love with in a club, or the guy you really hate and you just want to kiss her or smack him

    General Commentoh i thought it was
    "I have tried so very hard as hell
    To stay away from her upstairs"
    As in the girl he fancied who lives in the room above his or something like that.

    General CommentI Think it's about someone dying... it's pretty clear... "They say I'm doomed...", as in someone who's sick, and the doctors are like giving him medicines, treatments... and that stuff "I have seen all of your remedies..." it's like someone saying, leave me alone, let me live what's left of my life, stop feeling bad for me, I'm fine, leave me alone.
