Shake!
Shake!
Shake loose that single gleam of hope left in your chest.
Gone are the days of sunshine, I promise.
Breath-taking photographs of dreams long forgotten-
Your ship has sank!
Wrong place, wrong time.
Squeal once more for papa.
This is not about money, oh no,
This is a sport!

Hair that smells of fear and eyes that scream "solitude!"
Companionship is just another fucking curse!

You can't buy friends like this.
You can't buy friends like this.
You can't buy friends like this!
Bite and scratch all you like!
Bite and scracth all you like!

Trophies of black, blue, and red!

    General Commentits sounds a lot to me like he's abusing someone.
    for example the "gone are the days of sunshine, i promise" meaning that its going to be like this for awhile, same sa "shake loose that single gleam of hope let in your chest". and then the "trophies of black, blue, and red." would be depicting the bruises and blood as 'trophies' to the person abusing.

    and pretty much every other line points to it from my view too, along with the title in a way.

    so the way i see it, hes abusing his wife, girlfriend, etc.?

    thats how i see it anyhow.
