"It's an Ugly Life" as written by and Benjamin P Cooper Alexander P Kane....
pick apart your pieces
just to watch what makes you tick
scream all you want
there's no way out of this
you dug yourself a hole, a crater
trying to get away from your blood
now it's just peace of mind
you're dreaming of...

I stumbled through the doorway
and I fell out of my skin
on my nightmares from your ceiling
and watched you drink them in

I know that you're a bastard now
I know you'd like to bash out my brains
for all my pretty manners i'd do the same
we all need someone to blame

I had it there in my hands
and now i don't understand
but I will do what I can
yeah I will do what I can
but I don't understand
I gotta sleep when I can
I had it there in my hands
I had it there in my hands
but now I don't understand
but I will do what I can
yeah I will do what I can
I really don't understand
I gotta sleep when I can
I gotta sleep when I can
but I will do what I can...

there's always daggers in the back of my mind
and I find and I find and I find
they're always waiting till I close my eyes
oh but you'll get yours in time
and you'll whine and you'll whine and you'll whine
about how much you don't deserve it
but suck it up yeah we all gotta do our time
and you'll find and you'll find and you'll find
it's better just to get it over with

you'll get yours and I'll get mine
an ugly deal but it's an ugly life
it's an ugly deal but it's an ugly life
you'll get yours and I'll get mine
it's an ugly deal but it's an ugly life
it's an ugly deal but it's an ugly life
you'll get yours and I'll get mine
it's an ugly deal but it's an ugly life
it's an ugly deal but it's an ugly life
you'll get yours and I'll get mine
it's an ugly deal but it's an ugly life
it's an ugly deal but it's an ugly life...

    General CommentAgree with everyone that that quote is phenomenal.

    The song, to me, is about dwelling on what pains you in life. You try to figure out who you are inside and why different things cause you pain, even looking for others to blame. Eventually, you give up figuring things out and just want to be able to sleep at night. But the conclusion is that that's life, and there will always be problems to face.

    a favorite song quote right there. i think it goes well with the "sleep well" theme, cuz he dont wanna fall asleep cuz the daggers stab him then. thats why i cant sleep, the daggers (thoughts that keep occuring) keep me up nights and nights.
