once again i am abandoned all hope is lost, what else is new?
and i can't go on thinking about it
how in the past you've failed so many times
i thought it would've been a wake up call by now
but i guess theres always something new you have to find out for yourself

so many lessons have been learned, so many bridges have been burned
into the back of our memory
as far back as it goes and still nobody knows...

some things will never change
some things will always stay the same
some things have no meaning but it's okay we might not make it anyway
some things will never change

can anyone explain to me what the word pathetic really means?
at first it was funny but now it's an insult
i'm not angry
it just seems that everywhere i look there's another person having problems instead of me
what has this world come to when all i see is me?

it makes no sense to me
none of this can be happening
but I'll stick around with my feet on the ground waiting anxiously
and i just don't agree
with some of the stupid ideas
you heard me

cause i am abandoned

    My InterpretationThis song, to me, makes me think of any time I've ever felt at a loss, wronged, in a sticky situation or just plain feeling bad. I think it's about perspective. When things are just going to shit for you, the only thing you can really think about is how awful things are for you, and that's only made worse when you've got some perspective. Chances are, there are millions of other people in the world who have it far worse than you do.. but that doesn't really help you. Perspective just makes you feel guilty for feeling sorry for yourself, and that just makes it worse.

    Key lines:
    "It just seems that everywhere I look there's another person having problems
    Instead of me.
    What has this world come to when all I see is me?"

    Perspective and empathy don't help when it's your turn to have your life turn to shit, hence he feels abandonned.

    Probably not the meaning of the whole song, but that's what I think of with those lines.
