Stanzas 1:

I never knew what I was gonna be
Somebody saw what I couldn't see, and lifted me up
Now, I never thought I could be worthy of love,
and I yell at the sky above: "Don't let the thunder fall!"

Why does everybody have to fit in?
Feel so damn comfortable in this skin
Does that mean I am the:

Chorus:

Souvenir of sadness - method to the madness?

Hands up if you feel this
Anyone who has this

Stand up - nobody's dying to save you
Speak up - nobody's waiting to see you
Wake up - nobody's working to pay you

.....Let me make it clear, you had this:

.....Back then; you're black and blue in the schoolyard
.....Now then; you have grown up to be this hard
.....?

Go then, walk through this world with your heart scarred
- You're the souvenir of sadness

Stanzas 2:

They never knew what I was gonna say
Punch me, and kick me, and run away
...You know who you are
So now, look at me, what do you have to say?
Never cared much for you, anyway
...You know who you are
So now, look at me what do you have to say?
Never cared much for you any... Ill happy childhood backlash

    General CommentThis song strikes me as being about a guy who was bullied in junior high or high school for being a freak and an outcast but everyone was actually scared of him so they just beat him up and ran away They never actually faced off with him or had a fair fight. Now he's saying that all those hypocritical weak dick heads need to get a grip on the world and cut the crap. They need to realize that nobody likes them because of the fact that they're assholes so no one's going to save their asses when they're in trouble. He's also saying, "Hey! You said I was a loser, but look where I am now, fucktards. I got my own band!"

    General CommentHe's looking back on his career, seeing that no one else had the balls to say the shit he did back in '94, and now so many other bands have this sound.
