Staring out the window she sees glimpses of last night
and everyone is silent but speaking through their eyes
walking to the busstop where the court judges wait
To sentence her to live her life like she should be ashamed

Been around so many times, it wears out what you are
Accepting sarcasm and false sincerity
as words that people mean...

Rejection redefined by giving up just what they're after
Someone would tell you if they could speak above all this laughter
Think you would learn somehow, the time just isn't now

Got a reputation and no one's holding back
Wearing scars on your sleeve, so exposed to their attack
All her friend have pulled the plug on respect and reserve
Behind your back they prey on weakness, it's not what you deserve

Shot down, humiliated, pummeled by their words
Devoted you lay down with misplaced loyalty
It's misery you seek

No longer called by name when everybody's got your number
When dignity is gone that's when depression drags you under
To depths you didn't know beneath and under...
No longer called by name when everybody's got your number
When dignity is gone that's when depression drags you under
To depths you didn't know beneath the undertow.

    General Commenti love this song. i think it's about a girl who doesn't realize she's being a slut. she maybe started with one drunken one night stand or maybe she was even kind of forced or its possible she was tricked into having sex with a guy she thought loved her but didnt. obviously everyone heard about it and are talking shit like its a bigger deal than it is. the girl is obviously a better person than anyone is giving her credit for, she just doesn't know how to turn down guys. she knows people are being rude to her, but she doesn't understand why she's a joke, so she'll accept fakeness for support since its the best she can get. however all the whoring around and humiliation has worn her thin. and having sex with anyone anytime has become a new form of rejection because she now feels she has to have sex with anyone who wants it from her. all she can see is the negative reaction from others who are judging her and she begins to feel like the only way to feel better is the temporary comfort of a random hook up. but that will only make things worse and she isn't a bad person just misled and confused. the song ends with her beynod humiliated and depressed and not sure what to do. i think the singer is writing it from the perspective of a former friend who knows that the girl is a good person despite her promiscuous behavior.
