"Trashed and Scattered" as written by Zachary James Baker, Matthew Charles Sanders, James Owen Sullivan and Jr. Haner....
Keep on writing you're just raping yourself
(Nothing can take my mind away) from them
Don't you ask about me, ask about somebody else
(Once I've fallen there's many stories to tell)
I can feel it, won't embrace it, its overwhelming how far ya take it
(Stuck in a state of questioning)
And don't you tell me you know we're destined, you won't convince me, I won't listen
(Resentment building, you've put our lives on hold)

Trashed and scattered again, I'm feelin' so low
You waste your breath while fuckin' with me, my blood is so cold
My destination always is known, I'll find my way there
But Goddamn Motherfuckers always wasting my time.

I won't be the victim, but the first to cast a stone
Sedated nights to the bar room fights as metropolis takes its toll
And don't you try to stop me, it's a place you'll never know
Don't try to judge or take shots at me, I'll never let you seize control
Play your game and walk away, your integrity don't mean a shit
Crawl on me you fucking parasite, and I'm gonna take you out

Label me, that's fine, I'll be somebody else
(Nothing in front of me but holes ahead)
Lie about my life, have a story to tell
(Lights went down, was on the edge and I fell)
Oh you're so insightful, let me remind you to twist and break me
Should make you worried
(Long way to go and you're right there)
Two-faced liar, don't try and know me, deceit brings fire, makes you can't breath
(pick at pieces of my body below)

I never bothere with all the rumors, too much garbage (all the same)
(I know my destination)
I'll stand right here, come on you falsehood deceitful liar
(There's no shame)
Don't ever take my side, I know you're never right
I'll justify the means (nothing's what it seems)
I'll stand around and fight, but there's no point tonight, been chained to this machine

Trashed and scattered again, I'm feelin' so low
You waste your breath while fuckin' with me, my blood is so cold
My destination always unknown, I'll find my way there
But Goddamn impostor are you out of your mind

I walk down these roads alone and now you're seen here
My feelings that I'm having towards you are perfectly clear (I control this ride)
My devil's appetite is tonight and now I'm alright
But you Goddamn Motherfuckers always wasting my time
Play your game you better walk away cause your integrity don't mean a shit
Crawl on me you fucking parasite, and I'm gonna take you out

I won't be the victim, but the first to cast a stone
Sedated nights to the bar room fights as metropolis takes its toll
And don't you try to stop me, it's a place you'll never know
Don't try to judge or take shots at me, I'll never let you seize control

Don't try and get the best of me (no one can help but your own self)
City makes my body ache (lonely, don't try and prey on me)
I feel your world dying, no more use in tryin'
And my body's trashed and low, but you I'll never show myself or what's inside
And you've seen it all before but I'll settle the score, I'll never join your side.

    General CommentThis song has a very different meaning for me, something that very few can fully understand. In 1st grade I was bullied(so are thousands who cares) the difference was this was purely emotional. The entire grade acted as if I was trying to kill them with a knife. I had zero friends and my genius hurt me even more. It made me ask why me, what did I do to deserve even a fraction of this torture. The answer was they did this to me for fun but I only realized that 10 years later. These questions drove me into mental insanity. Now when I read the lyrics I realized this perfectly describes my life from 1st grade to 8th grade. I think the verse that proves this best is the second one. After not being accepted as an ordinary person I tried to mimic several different personalities. All of which were still met with hate. Which corresponds to the 2 lines “label me that’s fine I’ll be somebody else, lie about my life has a story to tell”. The rest corresponds with me (being a psychotic 7 year) contemplating going in with a knife and killing all my perpatraters. The last line is “ two faced liar you think you know me deceit brings fire make sure you can’t breathe”. Everyone in the grade thought they knew me as some unpopular kid that no one likes no emotion no kindness no empathy no sympathy why bother help him. At that age I was extremely kind though no one bothered to find the true me. In time(3 years of this torture) all the good qualities I had died. And one last thing to the girl who started it all. Margaret Mallet, if you ever see this for whatever reason, go fucking kill yourself you heartless piece of shit.

    General Commentlike M.I.A and Sieze the Day, this is up on my favorites list. I have been in a fight with my best friend and this perfectly described how i felt at the time. I wouldn't listen to him so he was just wasting his f*cking breath. its just perfect, they should use it in a mvoie for a fight scene, lol
