"You Can't Win" as written by and Hugo Peretti George Weiss....
I never wanted to fall from the top of the world but here I am.
And now I am tired and fucking ugly and I hate it but it's all I can be.
Locked up, fucked up but I know I'm not the only one.
I hear that life goes on, but I guess just not for everyone.

Consumed by bliss that now all I do is miss.
The memories can make me happy but now I'm fucking pissed! Hopeless.

Irrationally searching every single dimension to find a way to bring me closer to you.
It's nights like these when my jaw is being pried off the sides of my face and it feels as if somehow I swallowed a fucking shoe.

I want to tear out my throat so just for a minute I might be able to finally breath. What has happend to me?

Not a day goes by when I didn't wish I were still living in September 2005. I never wanted to live this way or to feel this pain. And I can't stop asking why.

Now I see that life is just a game.
Sometimes everyday without you,
is another day I wish I didn't have to go through. It still hits me like a brick everyday and it will never go away.

I never wanted you to go away.
I hang my head deep into my chest, tormented to realize that for now this is the best.

I want my life back, I want your life back more than anything. I never wanted to fall from the top of the world, but here I am and to some degree, I alawys feel like shit because your....

Gone. Forever. Gone, taken from me.
Gone, fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck.
I used to think depression had nothing to do with me.

Now everyday of my life I'm faced with despair and misery. Because some dumb fucking asshole made some bad choice, and he landed on you and we all pay the price...

Now I know the meaning of being alone.

    General CommentLeo Miller, in this song seems to be depicting what he feels, and how it feels to lose someone and not being able to comprehend why life isn't fair.

    General CommentThis song is about Leo losing his girlfriend in a car crash. The person driving the other car was drunk. Hence the last paragraph..
