Got the shades pulled down
He's all by himself now
Swallowing the pill that makes him feel alive
Is it getting better?
No,it made things so much worse
As it slowly slips inside his head
Through his nerves
and spilling out in verbs

Take a look at your faces
You've got everyone all shook up
Take a look at your faces
You've got everyone,everyone
It's not the same when all you want is never hard to get to
Take a look at your faces
Now they're haunting you!

Then he'll light the match
That will burn him brightest
Slides the needle in
That will make him highest
Another star struck down, another symbol of our time
I always knew it would turn against him
But now he's got those big headlines

Take a look at your faces
You've got everyone all shook up
Take a look at your faces
You've got everyone,everyone
It's not the same when all you want is never hard to get to
Take a look at your faces
Now they're haunting you!

Take a look, take a look, take a look at yourself!

Can anybody find the man he used to be?
Can anybody find the man before the dream?

Take a look at your faces
You've got everyone all shook up
Take a look at your faces
You've got everyone,everyone
It's not the same when all you want is never hard to get to
Take a look at your faces
Now they're haunting you!

    General Commenti think this is about the effect suicide or death in general can have on your loved ones

    General CommentI disagree, I think it's pretty clearly about drug use and the effects of it.
    "Swallowing the pill that makes him feel alive"
    Also, it talks about the effects
    "Is it getting better?
    No,it made things so much worse"
    &
    "Can anybody find the man he used to be?
    Can anybody find the man before the dream?"
    And it talks about the people around the one who uses the drugs and how they see him
    "Take a look at your faces
    You've got everyone all shook up
    Take a look at your faces"

    General Commentthe song was orignally titled "Game OVERdose (Heath Ledger)" if i remember right
    so i think i meant to put in something about drug over dose in my first comment but the reason i think its about suicide is this line


    Take a look at your faces
    You've got everyone all shook up

    just seems like suicide to me
