Trapped within your own apathy
Spiralling into a cycle of loss
Beaten mind with a bruised reflection
It's addiction to failure and substances
-That ties you to your selfish punishment
In your eyes it's cursed
No fix, no cure, tortured with imperfection
-Your hatred is aimless
This is my hatred, this is my vow,
Never to be broken

Cause you HATE yourself
And you HATE this world
And you HATE the fact
That you HATE every moment

Cause you HATE yourself
And you HATE this world
And you HATE the fact
That you HATE every moment

Cause you HATE yourself
And you HATE this world
And you HATE the fact
That you HATE every moment

Cause you HATE yourself
And you HATE this world
And you HATE the fact
That you HATE every moment

Defeatist, you and i will NEVER BE THE SAME!
I've taken this vow of hatred... TAKE THE VOW
A promise to myself to never be my own defeatist
This is my hatred, this is my vow.
Never to be broken.

Cause you HATE yourself
And you HATE this world
And you HATE the fact
That you HATE every moment

Cause you HATE yourself
And you HATE this world
And you HATE the fact
That you HATE every moment

Cause you HATE yourself
And you HATE this world
And you HATE the fact
That you HATE every moment

Cause you HATE yourself
And you HATE this world
And you HATE the fact
That you HATE every moment

i take this vow
I take this vow of hatred,
I take this, never be to broken

    General Comment:If you read the notes in the album booklet it explain a lot about this song specifically - it's about Jamey's vices he allowed himself to fall into, and the apathy he felt for everything in the year or so before this album was released.

    The whole album is effectively about him overe-coming his personal demons to regain his motivation and love for what he does, and this specific song is about him rejecting his old self. The 'defeatist' in "Defeatist, you and I will never be the same" is himself a year or so ago.

    General Comment:Defiest? the fuck are you on about you spacker? i always think of this song as the ultimate anti emo song, sure you've got problems in your life, everyone does, but you're just whining and giving up, and that's why your weak and a defeatist. The rest of us sort our problems out instead of moping around and complaining, "you and i will never be the same!"

    General Comment:i love it.
    like all their other songs
    they give you the inspiration to pick yourself up
    and fight through everything that stands in your way
    head first.
    ace banter!

    General Comment:It's pretty obvious that this song is about not kicking yourself in the ass and giving up. Astrolyka gets it right. "My own defeatist"... I'm not going to waste my time, it's obvious..
