I did my best to please you
But my best was never good enough
Somehow you're only able to see
All I am not

Did you ever look behind
Aren't you afraid of the pieces you'll find
I have failed you
But you have failed me too


[It's so easy to destroy
And condemn
The ones you do not understand
Do you ever wonder if it's justified

It's so easy to destroy
And condemn
The ones you do not understand
In your life why didn't you ever try ? ]

I close my eyes as I walk the thin line
Between love and hate
For the person with the same blood in his vains

You show no regrets
About all the things you did or said
I have failed you
But believe me
You failed me too !

[Chorus x2]

    General CommentAnother song about human nature. It is so much easier for us to point the finger than to accept that someone is different. Especially to those people who think all members of a group have to share all the same views.

    General CommentI'm not sure what the song is supposed to mean, but whenever I hear the chorus "It's so easy to destroy and condemn, the ones you do not understand" I think about my best friend. We got into an argument almost a month ago. Five days later I tried calling her. She hung up eleven seconds into the conversation. We haven't spoken since.

    General CommentWell, I think it's about a teenager whose parents wants them to be something they're not, but they can't be that, hence the dissapointedparent. Also the child likes/is good at things the parent can't understand or appreciate and condemns them for it. In a way, this reminds me of numb by Linkin Park
    But then that's just me ;)

    And hooray! my first comment!!!! And on my birthday =D lol

    General CommentI love this song
    for me the chorus reminds me of breed specific legislation where the gov is determining that a whole breed is vicious without taking into account the individual dogs because its easier

    General CommentOne of the things I love most about WT are their magnificent lyrics. =D

    This song means so much to me (Well, actually many of their songs mean a lot to me - it's as if they were writing right from my own heart.). It reminds me of my parents, me coming out to them and everything that followed. :-/
