Let's go, right now.

I look alive, I'm dead inside
My heart has holes where black blood flows
We'll do some drugs & fall in love
& get fucked up while the world just shrugs
with no though logically
we're wandering the streets so aimlessly
I hate to see these kids just being
put down so painlessly
and people say you dye your hair and wear tight jeans
that doesnt mean that you cant scream and like loud noise
you got a choice, you have a voice
and just because you show no love, and hate on us,
you fucked our trust.
now watch me thrust this knife called lust
into my chest until it busts.


[CHORUS]
This love, this hate
Is burning me away
It's hard to face that we're
All the same
This love this hate
Is burning me away
It's hard at times like these that never change


You're mad at the fact that your dad is an addict
you're friend takes pills,
he thinks it cures sadness
I'm not here to attack and make your kids panic
but it's just tragic the way these kids have it
everybody sins and it all begins
it goes back around, no body ever wins
and you stab yourself in the back
everybody just RELAX
it all just hits so close to home
we all got friends, but we stand alone
and you're on your own, in a broken home
you keep the truth inside and it stays unknown
nostalgia hits and its time to quit
and everybody acts like it dont mean shit
and you're friend would stab you just to fuck some girl
put your hands in the air, scream,
"FUCK THE WORLD! ! !"


[CHORUS]
This love, this hate
Is burning me away
It's hard to face that we're
All the same
This love this hate
Is burning me away
It's hard at times like these that never change

LET GO
(I'll bring you closer)
RIGHT NOW
(hold on tightly)
LET GO
(we're going nowhere)
SOMEWHERE
(and things aren't over)


harder times like THESE
growing up on the streets
harder times like THESE
we'll put you back on your feet.

[CHORUS]
This love, this hate
Is burning me away
It's hard to face that we're
All the same
This love this hate
Is burning me away
It's hard at times like these that never change


and I fall to the ground with my tear drops,
and I get lost everytime my heart stops,
this love, this hate
It's burning me away
and I fall to the ground with my tear drops,
and I get lost everytime my heart stops,
this love, this hate !
it's burning me away !

    General Commentsweet. songs about fucked up scenesters
    and then some more fucked up kids.
    it's good though.

    i hate the format this is done in though..couldn't the lyrics be written like this:


    LET’S GO RIGHT NOW!

    i look alive, i'm dead inside. my heart has holes and black blood flows.
    we'll do some drugs, well fall in love and get fucked up while the world just shrugs.
    with no thought logically, we’re wondering the streets so aimlessly.
    i hate to see these kids just being put down so painlessly.
    and people say you dye your hair and wear tight jeans, that doesn’t mean that you can’t scream
    or like loud noise, you got a choice, you have a voice.
    and just because you showed no love and hate on us- you fucked our trust.

    now watch we thrust this knife called lust into my chest until it bust.
    this love, this hate is burning me away (is burning me away)
    it's hard to face that we're all the same
    this love, this hate is burning me away (is burning me away)
    it's harder times like these that never change (that never change)

    mad at the fact your dad is an addict, your friend takes pills, he thinks it cures sadness-
    i'm not here to attack or make you kids panic,
    but i just think it's tragic the way these kids have it.
    and everybody sins and it all begins, it goes back around, nobody ever wins.
    and you stab yourself in the back
    everybody just relax! it all just hits so close to home,
    we all got friends but we stand alone, and your on your own from a broken home,
    you keep the truth inside and it stays unknown.
    nostalgia hit and its time to quit and everybody acts like it don't mean shit.
    and your friend will stab you just to fuck some girl,
    put your hands in the air and scream, “fuck the world!”


    LET GO! (i'll bring you closer)
    RIGHT NOW! (i'll hold on tightly)
    LET GO! (we're going nowhere)
    SOMEWHERE! (and things aren't over)
    HARDER TIMES LIKE THESE! (growing up on the streets)
    HARDER TIMES LIKE THESE! (i'll put you back on your feet)

    and i fall to the ground with my teardrops
    and i get lost every time my heart stops

    THIS LOVE, THIS HATE, IS BURNING ME AWAY!

    General CommentThis song is exactly the reason i love Hollywood Undead
    they do a more serious kind of song like this, black dahlia, paradise loss, the loss, the diary and circles
    but from the same band comes songs like bitches, dead in ditches, no. 5 and pimpin'
    i think that's pure talent.

    My InterpretationI do believee this song means: It is basically about damaged youth and how although they appear to be living the life of a youth in the end the life of teens or youth is a dangerous trap that some peoplle make it out alive wich i believe they are try to say " When the world just shrugs" and some do not. They are always going to be people to decieve you or bring you into the hidden trap called lust that in the end with stab you in the back cause once you realize you are in the trap of lust , it is kinda hard to come back out, so then you are left with no one but yourself, you are not only damaged, you are messed up and, lonley and in the end I guess we are all like that in some way.
