I want to thank myself for being so hard on myself.
There's no one else could know how much I really must improve.
I see my faults come through in every aspect of my life.
I just see the downside of every single thing I do.

(Chorus)
But when you're down this low,
No one can make you feel worse.
Yeah, when you hate yourself,
Nobody can touch you.
Yeah, when you're down this low,
The haters haven't got you.
I guess that's why, in a way,
I say self loathing rules.

I should point out that overall I'm not so negative
I know that there are lots of good things for me in this world.
I feel like, all in all, I'm only being realistic.
I've yet to see the merits of the things I'm trying to do.

(Repeat chorus X 3)

    General Commentprobably the easiest to decipher song by shout out out out out but the lyrics are still wrong.

    "I know that there are lots of good things for me in this world"
    &
    "I've yet to see the merits of the things I've tried to do"

    anyway, great song, wonderful live, they're so high-energy :).

    General CommentWhile the "meaning" of Shout Out Out Out Out songs doesnt seem hard to find, I still wonder if anyone else is astonished at the depth a band of this type does put into their lyrics.

    Maybe its just me, but I rarely find bands that have this strong of an electronic sound without their lyrics being junk.
