"This Love, This Hate" as written by Aron Erlichman and Jimmy Yuma....
In a time of need only few can see what's wrong
Millions tend to crawl but only those who choose can make it through this all,

Only few can sing like lions 'cause we sing until we're gone
And we've got each others backs until we're back where we belong,

A woman held my shield and through the battle we did wrong,
A man who taught me wisdom through the static we recall,

And maybe when we' re gone our names will echo through the stars,
Every start's got it's ending even when we've learned to rise above it all,

These lies are leading me astray
Its too much for me to stay
I don't wanna live this destiny
It goes on endlessly

I see you so please stay strong
I'll sing you one last song
And then I'm gone
I don't wanna live this destiny
It goes on endlessly

And we once also had a story too
You can see that good men only come in few.
Even in our greatest moments we may win or we may lose
Every song's got it's rules, you've got to learn to make it through

Maybe one day we can choose how it feels to be a woman or a man
Without rules but buried underneath there's a picture glued

So when my body burns in ashes only sing the truth
Let these words strengthen all your views
Because these words were meant for you

These lies are leading me astray
Its too much for me to stay
I don't wanna live this destiny
It goes on endlessly

I see you so please stay strong
I'll sing you one last song
And then I'm gone
I don't wanna live this destiny
It goes on endlessly

An' now I'm floatin' right above my coffin as it closes I look down
I see sigh as she's cryin on my moma's shoulder
I look up into the sky as the gates to heaven open somethin's wrong
Is this destiny or am I goin' home,

What will happen to my soul will I come back I don't know,
Will you meet me when its over let me know,
You can meet me here in heaven don't you ever let me go

This love this hate is burning me away

These lies are leading me astray
Its too much for me to stay
I don't wanna live this destiny
It goes on endlessly

I see you so please stay strong
I'll sing you one last song
And then I'm gone
I don't wanna live this destiny
It goes on endlessly

These lies are leading me astray
Its too much for me to stay
I don't wanna live this destiny
It goes on endlessly

I see you so please stay strong
I'll sing you one last song
And then I'm gone
I don't wanna live this destiny
It goes on endlessly

This love this hate is burning me away
This love this hate is burning me away

    General CommentTo me, this song is like an anti-war song where he is no longer sure if what he was told to do by the military was the right thing to do. The snare drum near the end also reminds me a lot of the military.

    The first verse sounds kind of like a pep talk to himself and in a way sounds like the military commercials that you see.

    First 5 lines sounds like kind of like saying there are many people who feel like they should do something but only a few actually are brave enough to do it “sing like lions”

    The next 2 lines “we got each other’s back until were back where we belong” sounds like he is with his fellow platoon members and they will protect each other until they are back home.

    Skipping down a little bit

    “And through the battles we did wrong
    A man would tell me wisdom through the static we were gone
    And maybe when were gone they'll look into the stars
    Every starts got its ending
    Even when we've learn to rise above it all”

    It sounds like they were told to do something that they thought was wrong but the man over the radio gave them orders to and said if you die you will be remembered as a hero.

    The next verse that repeats a few times that starts with “These lies are leading me astray” This sound sounds like the regret he has of what he has done and he feels like he was lied to. The war does go on endlessly. And he will “sing one last song until he is gone” off to the next war.

    The next verse could be taken as solders and combat references Etc…


    My 2 cents...

    General CommentAnd now I'm floatin' right above my coffin as it closes
    I look down and I see Sai
    As she's cryin on my mama's shoulder
    I look up into the sky as the gates of Heaven open
    Somethings wrong is this destiny or am I going home
    What will happen to my soul
    Will I come back I don't know
    Will you meet me when it's over, let me know
    You can meet me here in Heaven
    Don't you ever let me go
    this is what gets to me the most man cuz i feel this inside like no other to me it says that when your in your darkest place and feel no one cares and then you end it.... then you really see how much people care
    This love, this hate
    Is burning me away

    General Commentthis song kicks ass.
    not sure what the the connection is with this one and "knife called lust" though.
    the lyrics are pretty much completely different except for that one line.

    General Commenti thought of it as talking about sexuality. my reasoning is this:

    the part that goes: "Maybe one day we can choose
    How it feels to be a woman or a man
    Without rules we're buried underneath"

    made me think it means something like one day it wont be such a big deal to be gay/les/trans, etc. maybe one day it will be more socially acceptable.

    "I don't wanna live this destiny" not wanting to be socially "forced" to remain a man/woman and being able to be who you are inside, not being trapped inside the body you were born in.
    i guess its more about transgender (and the like) issues, because we all know that Hollywood Undead and Jeffree Star have worked together on music and such.

    "So when my body burns in ashes only sing the truth
    Let these words strengthen all your views"

    our bodies are only containers for who we really are. who said those containers cant sometimes be mislabeled?

    General CommentOf the billions, maybe like only a few people have helped him out: supported his mistakes/taught him better. Songs same to that are meaningful and would still have it after the artist's death. a ponder if after his own death if people would still think about him under any condition.
    The chorus could mean how he doesn't want to continue living in a world endless sin. To his loved ones to not break like he did and a final oath/song before his death.
    "I don't want to live this destiny - It goes on endlessly!"
    Next verse, how in his POV there's not much good people. shit like war and economy going down is forced to be dealt with. Someday, will we finally have this 'freedom' the Constitution promised centuries ago and blabbed about? Someday, will certain sexual orientations - styles - creativity be accepted by society? Will there be reincarnation? When he dies, he doesn't want his thoughts or words to just die like that as well. He wants them to still live, "Because these words were meant for you!"
    Now that he's died, he's unsatisfied of the people his hurt. Trying to forget it, he tries to move on to going to Heaven. pause, is this really it for him? All these questions are making him wonder if he'll get peace at last, will he ever see his loved ones again, or does nothing happen in the end. As if things would be okay. "Don't you ever let me go!"

    Love for the beloved. Hate for the hated. Love of not seeing hated ones again. Hate of not seeing beloved ones again. The people that hated him. The people that loved him. His love and hate for life.

    " This Love . This Hate ; Is Burning Me Away. "


    Well duhr I could be wrong about these lyrics. There's several more meanings and confusions about the lyrics
    "I look down and I see, *sigh* - As she's cryin on my mama's shoulder"
    Who is /she/? Probably another metaphor, rhyme or something.

    General Comment"Without rules we're buried underneath
    There's a picture glue"

    glue should be clue, makes more sense that way.



    "And we once also had a story too/You can see that good men come in few/Even in our greatest moments/We may win or we may lose/Every songs got its rules/You've got to learn to make it through/Maybe one day we can choose/.../Without rules we're buried underneath/There's a picture clue/.../Let these words strengthen all your views/Because these words were meant for you"

    All he's saying is that some ppl let rules control them... when he said that "every songs got its rules, you got to learn how to make it through," he means you have to know when to break them....

    and i think the underlining message of the song is that "this love, this hate" is burning him away because no one ever did and no one ever can teach him what the rules are for those emotions.

    i also think Sai/Sasha is his sister

    General CommentI'm not sure what their song is about, but their chorus is about their album, Swan Songs. They named it that because it is the last song a swan sings before dieing. And if they ever break up, the album will be their Swan Song.
