"Pitiful" as written by Emma Anzai, Shimon Moore, Antonina Armato and Timothy James Price....
Made the toast, burnt the eggs, never got the hang of them
Just another other day
Caught the bus, forgot the change, looks like I'll be late again
Hopefully, they won't complain

My life's so pitiful, give me one good reason why I shouldn't end it all
If there's a reason, then I haven't found it yet
And I try every **** I find except, maybe, **** and ****
But there's a reason I just can't afford it yet
It's another overdose

Went to work, saw you there
But you never seem to care for a single thing I say
I set my clock and went to sleep
This anxiety, I keep through another **** day
Looks like that's all today, I'm dying

My life's so pitiful, give me one good reason why I shouldn't end it all
If there's a reason, then I haven't found it yet
And I try every **** I find except, maybe, **** and ****
But there's a reason I just can't afford it yet

My life's so pitiful, pitiful
Pitiful, pitiful, pitiful

My life's so pitiful, give me one good reason why I shouldn't end it all
If there's a reason, then I haven't found it yet
And I try every **** I find except, maybe, **** and ****
But there's a reason I just can't afford it yet

Well, my life's so pitiful, my life's so pitiful
My life's so pitiful, I'm dying

    General CommentThis song really hits home for i know what its like to feel absolutely pitiful. This guy just cant do anything right from making eggs, to getting to work on time to getting a girl he likes at work to even notice him. Hes got nothing to live for. He takes a large amount of drugs just to numb the pain making him feel more pitiful. He says he would buy heroin if he could just afford it so its obvious he has no concern about his overall health. This song is a mirror of my life

    General Commenti agree wit chew lottie...it is bout all dat stuff...but i think it's a lil more serious...like he mentions drugs...i think it's really about all problems ppl have and how they want to harm themselves...i played this song to my ex the other day and it made him realise that just cuz i dumped him doesn't mean his whole life is screwed...this song means alot to alot of people...(SICK PUPPIES ROK MY SOX OFF)

    General CommentStraightforward, rather. He's saying that life sucks and that he thinks he should end it all. He wants a reason not to end it all but it hasn't come yet.

    General CommentWow, I love how he sings this song. And I agree with the others, it's about some serious trouble, that repeats everyday, and he want's to kill himself, because he can't find a reason why he shouldn't.

    General Commentthis song always seemed sarcastic to me. like, i'm so pitiful, i can't even make eggs, i'm late for work again... it's no reason to end your life. i think i like it better this way... it makes me laugh, there's some humor in it. otherwise, i mean... it's just pitiful.

    General Commenti get the impression that hes just really bored with life and waking up doing the same things every day and making the same mistakes. I love this song cause the way he sings gives you that impression, not just the things he says. i think the eggs and being late for work isnt literally what hes talking about but just examples of what a fuck up he feels like and is just tired of trying to turn things around for himself. he can no longer even think of a reason to try
