"So-So Suicide" as written by Scott Anderson, Sean Anderson, Rich Beddoe, James Black and Rick Jackett....
I felt the blisters
Below the words
A universe waiting to explode

And I felt the words crawl out of my skull
And now you know
Exactly what you should

Don't bother pretending I seem fine
I like that I'm a mess
I can't stand it much longer in my head
I think it's time for bullets

Became so-so suicidal
And now I know the ugly from the good

Don't bother pretending I seem fine
I like that I'm a mess
I can't stand it much longer in my head
I think it's time for bullets

Don't bother pretending I seem fine
I'm trying to confess
I can't stand it much longer in my head
But it's not time for bullets

    Song MeaningThis song is pretty obviously about a person who generally feels like a mess and is depressed or has been going through a rough time. The first two parts sound like he finally told someone how he's been feeling and about how unhappy he's been, probably for the first time, instead of keeping everything inside ("I felt the words crawl out of my skull and now you know exactly what you should"), and how that was a hard step to take and could've all blown up in his face depending on the reaction ("felt the blisters below the words...").

    The way he's been feeling has been part of him for a long time and he doesn't want to hide it anymore ("don't bother pretending...I like that I'm a mess"). And while sometimes he doesn't feel like he can handle it or doesn't want to deal with it anymore and thinks about suicide ("I can't stand it much longer in my head, I think it's time for bullets"), in the end he's trying to talk about it instead ("trying to confess") and probably just wants to feel better and be okay instead of killing himself ("but it's not time for bullets").
