Day by day we fall apart
Disintegrate the lightning rains across the sky
but comes too late to change the mood and save us now
It’s criminal the way we love
The way we hate it’s almost human
Eyes are opened wide

Stood on the rooftop scream at the sky again
Dance to the radio end of the world we know
Ugly is beautiful beauty in stereo
Thinking of you
Just like the Earth spins high as a kite again
There with the river flow end of the life I’ve known
Ugly is beautiful beauty so terrible
Thinking of you

All the words we throw away
Like paper cuts they just keep piling
Higher and higher throughout the day
illogical the script we’re writing
It’s chemical the way we love
The way we hate it’s quite inhuman
Eyes are opened wide

Stood on the rooftop scream at the sky again
dance to the radio end of the world we know
Ugly is beautiful beauty in stereo
Just like the earth spins high as a kite again
There with the river flow end of the world we’ve known
Ugly is beautiful beauty so terrible
Thinking of you

    General CommentThis song creepily fits two of my characters. It's kind of scary, actually...but anyways, what i think this song means is something like this- He used to hate this girl for some unspecified reason, and thought he always would, but then he starts falling in love with her.

    Stood on the rooftop scream at the sky again= he's angry that he can't control how he feels

    Ugly is beautiful= what used to be ugly to him is suddenly wonderful

    All the words we throw away/like paper cuts they just keep piling= whenever he tries to talk to her he can't do it, and every time he tries and fails it cuts him

    End of the world we've known= life as they knew it isn't working out anymore, it's changed irrevocably

    Etc., etc. I could go on, but I won't. *cough*

    General Commentomg, i love david usher soooo much. this is one of the most beautiful songs! i'm not sure, but i think he's trying to show how everything is backwards and upside down in this world, but all he can think of is his one and only

    General CommentI think that BlueCOD makes a good point that is probably what it is about. It also just makes me think that appearances aren't everything and maybe that the inside counts too? Probably not what he is going for but yeah. I just really love this song even though I don't fullly understand it.

    General CommentBlueCOD covered it and now i realized just how eerily close this is to my own life. I'm just amazed by ow David Usher is the one and only singer with the songs that scream what's going on inside my head. He's amazing, and so underrated. Go David!
