Did you used to believe?
Did you used to believe?
Well I was feeling the same way...
Squeezing dreams out of a fucking sound!
They stick around, they go away
But none of you know a fucking thing about me!
...just go away
"She's fucking dead!
Oh my god, she's fucking dead!!!"
My love stopped her breathing!"

Did you used to believe?
Did you used to believe?
Well, I was feeling the same way
Now I'm chucking rocks at the fucking glass!

They stick around, they go away
But none of you know a fucking thing about me!
...just go away
"She's fucking dead!
Oh my god, she's fucking dead!!!"
My love stopped her fucking breathing
...life into me!
And the songs that she sings
Are as dead as nails on the fucking shelf!
What happened to the times?
Where we'd stay up all night
We'd fucking fight!
And we'd fight and we'd fight and we'd fight!
Those were the days dear, forgive me for holding on! (FOR HOLDING ON!)

I was thinking about the times when no one cared
And how you hated everything I fucking loved
Well, I don't give a fuck about any of you!
You'll come and go...
But you'll never mean a thing to her!
TO HER!
you'll never mean a thing to her!
TO HER!
you'll never mean a thing to her!
TO HER!

I LOVED THE WAY SHE FUCKING SANG IN MY HEADPHONES!!!

    General CommentProbably my favourite song, ever.
    I can't believe it wasn't already up.

    It's clearly about a girl, on some level. ...but it's also about "the scene" and people coming and going:
    "They stick around, they go away"

    Not sure whether the death is metaphorical or real:
    "She's fucking dead"

    Also, I've never understood the final line, but have just always loved it anyway.
    Anyone care to shed some light?
    "I LOVED THE WAY SHE FUCKING SANG IN MY HEADPHONES!!!"

    General CommentI'm pretty sure its not a girl at all, he's referring to the hardcore scene as a girl, it makes much more sense that way
