"Congratulations, I Hate You" as written by and Alessandro Dilillo....
No one ever said that life was fair and I'm not saying that it should be
So knowing that you are where you want to be and I'm not comes as no surprise
But don't expect me to be happy for you
And don't smile at me and tell me things will work out for me too
I don't want your pity, I hate your pity

Taste your vanity'
Its sweet bitterness as you hide behind your veil of my stolen hopes and lost dreams
You took them all'
I watched you steal my thoughts and had to see you smile

As you build your dreams on my shattered hopes
I'll look back on a day once loved and fantasize for tragedy

Beg me to make this easier and listen to my hopeless cries

Suffer alone in emptiness
I lust to see you swallowed by the mess that you left in your wake
Disgust lies deep within your empty gaze'

Beg me to make this easier and listen as my hopeless cries
Send stares into your meaningless eyes

My envy can't describe how I loathe you for having all the stars
Leaving my eyes to marvel the sky knowing it should be mine
Yet it's you I see wasting the dream that only I deserve
I'll tear off your face to see your smile

As you build your dreams on my shattered hopes
I'll look back on a day once loved and fantasize for tragedy

    General CommentOkay... I have to stop this.
    The song is not ebout an ex, a friend, a scorned lover, or a tragic tale from childhood.
    All of Alesana's songs are based on mythology of various sorts, except for the new album which is about Brothers Grimm along with mythology.
    And that's not my interpretation, the guys will even say that.
    They're not a little emo band, so please stop interpreting it that way.

    General CommentHi, i'm Tory.
    I've always felt as all music has their own personal meaning to a person itself.
    You could say this song was about a flying turtle, or something.
    I, personally, see it as a break up.
    "No one ever said that life was fair, and i'm not saying that it should be.
    So knowing that you are where you want to be, and i'm not comes as no suprise.
    But don't expect me to be happy for you and don't smile at me and tell me things will work out for me too."
    I see that as the girl breaks up with this guy, finds another guy, and she is telling him that she will find someone too, but hes telling her he doesn't wanna hear it, and that hes not gonna be happy for her.
    I can totally relate to that, because i feel the same way about my ex boyfriend.
    "Taste your vanity and its sweet bitterness, as you hide behind your veil of my stolen hopes and lost dreams,I watched you steal my thoughts and had to see you smile ..You took them all..."
    He has to watch her be happy, but all he can think about her.
    "As you build your dreams on my shattered hopes, I'll look back on a day once loved and fantasize for tragedy."
    Shes doing the things he wished they were doing, and all he can think about is how things used to be between them.
    Suffer alone in emptiness
    "I lust to see you swallowed by the mess that you left in your wake, disgust lies deep within your empty gaze"He wants to see her hurt, like he is, and he wants to see her come back only to tell her no, and cause the same pain she caused him.

    Just the way i saw it. :)

    General Commentthe best thing about this band is you can find lyrics. if not then all you would hear is a sound like Dani Filth (Cradle of Filth lead singer) screaming.
