I don't know how else to put this
It's taken me so long to do this
I'm falling asleep and i cant see straight
My muscles feel like a melee
My bodys curled in a U-shape
I put on my best but i'm still afraid

Propped up by lies with promises
Saving my place as life forgets
Maybe its time i saw the world

I'm only here for a while
But patience is not my style
And i'm so tired that i gotta go

What am i suppose to hide now
What am i suppose to do
Did you really think i wouldn't see this through

Tell me i should stick around for you
Tell me i could have it all
I'm still too tired to care and i gotta go

I get to go home in one week
But I'm leaving home in three weeks
They throw me a bone just to pick me dry

i'm following suit and directions
i crawl up inside for protection
i'm told what to do and i don't know why

i'm overexisting in limbo
i'm over the myths and placebos
i don't really mind if i just fade away

im ready to live with my family
im ready to die in obscurity
cause i'm so tired that i gotta go

what am i suppose to want now
what am i suppose to do
you still don't think i'm going see this through

tell me i'm a part of history
tell me i can have it all
i'm still too tired to care and i gotta go


oh yeah
oh yeah yeah yeah yeah.

still to tired to care and i gotta go
still to tired to care and i gotta go
still to tired to care and i gotta go

yea yea
still to tired to care and i gotta go
go home
still to tired to care and i gotta go
yeah yeah
still to tired to care and i gotta go

    General Commenta melee is "a violent free-for-all"
    it means his muscles are tired, most likely metaphorically. as i said, it probably means he's tired of his life

    General CommentMy brother took his own life September 28, 2010. This was the song we played at his funeral. My brother had problems with alcohol and drugs, we found a journal that he had been writing in for little less than a year and it said how bad he hurt and the pain he couldn't take anymore. I so wish we would have known it was that bad for him. It's going to take a long time for my family to get over this. This song brings tears to my eyes, which roll down my face and I can't stop them. I think it described how my brother was feeling and why he had to leave us. I haven't listened to the song since his funeral which has been a week now and I don't know if I can anymore. I think that song has a lot to do with not being able to take the pain felt in one's life anymore. That's the conclusion my family got from this song after listening to it and decided to play it at his funeral. It was actually put on my brother's facebook page by him the morning of September 28th, that night he took his life.

    General Commenti cant say what this song is specifically about, it sounds really personal so i would have to say its coreys song to express how he feels just living his life. good song
