Amuse myself with pots of paint, produce the demons within us pointles trials but don't be late, coz someones always pissed off

Disrespect me coz i'm ugly, don't give me your stupid pity

there are no hands to tell the time, master of my destination, your selfish hands invade this time and break through all of my fences

disrespect me coz i'm ugly, don't give me your stupid pity

Amuse myself with pots of paint, produce the demons within us pointles trials but don't be late, coz someones always pissed off

disrespect me coz i'm ugly, don't give me your stupid pity
disrespect me coz i'm ugly, don't give me your stupid pity

    My InterpretationWithin both the doleful meolody and tone of his voice...it is like a deep self-hatred and shame. He feels as though the horrible person he sees himself as and the constant inner self-beradment are what he deserves, rather than all of the "stupid pity" of those around him...which simply frustrate him and create a further realization of being fake or shameful. The "amuse myself with pots of paint" could be his creative outlet, his inner demons coming out in art. And pointless trials may be the daily routine, and his part in it...he is tired and jaded.

    *Shrug* I guess, overall, I just saw this as a personal expression of his...rather than a take on society.

    General CommentI think this song is sort of talking about how society is today. like people disrespect people or make fun of them because they are different. but at the same time people also pity people cuz they are different. and i think its also talking about how that makes you feel lonely and whatnot. i could be wrong but thats just what i get from the song

    Song Meaningi dont really get this song either- its like its made in chunks:
    "Amuse myself with pots of paint" ( could be him being easily ammused or more likely easily distracted)
    "Produce the demons within us" (its so true!- we have low self esteem and we create our own demons about ourself, from ourself)
    "Pointless trials but dont be late, cos someones always pissed off" (People seem to get pissed off about such small things)
    "Disrespect me coz i'm ugly, don't give me your stupid pity" (you can judge me from my looks, but im deeper than that and i dont care what i look like and you shouldnt either, so dont give me you stupid pity. personality counts a lot more)
    "there are no hands to tell the time" (not really sure on this one, could be that the concept of time was made by humans, we labelled it, and we label everything)
    "master of my destination" (what WE do and the choice we make define us and where we end up in life)
    "your selfish hands invade this time and break through all of my fences" (you dont mind your business for your own purposes and try to break into everything private, and break into the things i wanted to hide)
