"Goodbye" as written by Jacob William Hoggard and John Feldmann....
I can't stop the rain
I can't stop the sky from falling down
I can't stop the pain
I can't stop the world from spinning 'round
I'm falling down

I can't stop the war
I can't stop my death from happening
And my head's a morgue
I can't stop the worms from tunneling
Once they begin

So goodbye
It's time to pull the trigger
Goodbye
My problems just got bigger
So goodbye

I can't stop the waves
I can't stop the tide from rolling
And I've dug my grave
Now, I've become a mannequin
My lifeless twin

So goodbye
It's time to pull the trigger
Goodbye
My problems just got bigger
So goodbye

Don't ask me anything
You know it's up to me
Don't tell me anything
My life is rough to lead
So goodbye

I've been let down
You terrorized my life, but now I'm done
I watch you drown
You symbolize the past
A skeleton

I've been let down
You terrorized my life, but now I'm done
I watch you drown
You symbolize the past

I'm just a skeleton
A fucking skeleton

So goodbye
It's time to pull the trigger
Goodbye
My problems just got bigger
So goodbye

Don't ask me anything
You know it's up to me
Don't tell me anything
My life is rough to lead
So goodbye

I'm just a skeleton
A fucking skeleton

    General CommentThe song is obviously about suicide. Even moreso, it's the former shell of the man speaking to himself. It could even be said that it's a suicide note to himself rather than actually speaking. The lyrics, "I watch you drown/You symbolize the past/A skeleton", I believe, is basically him speaking from the standpoint of where he is now to the person he used to be. Or vice/versa depending on how you look at the situation. Certainly a strong song, indeed.
