"Watching Us Die Tonight" as written by and Max Martin Matthew Tuck....
Back against the wall
What the fuck just happened?
(Don't you cry)
We've been here before
Breaking off, taking action
(No more lies)

I'm not gonna blame this on you
I know I gave it all I got
No, I'm not gonna blame this on you
I tell you that it's not your fault

But honestly, you're killing me
I'm sick of us wasting time
I took your heart, tore it apart
Watching us die tonight

Play me for a fool
What the hell were you thinking?
(All this time)
Now I have to choose
'Cause I'm tired, no more thinking
(Let me out)

I'm not gonna blame this on you
I know I gave it all I got
No, I'm not gonna blame this on you
I tell you that it's not your fault

But honestly, you're killing me
I'm sick of us wasting time
I took your heart, and tore it apart
Watching us die tonight

Everything will be alright
I'm watching us die tonight
Everything will be alright
I'm watching us die tonight

I'm not gonna blame this on you
I know I gave it all I got
No, I'm not gonna blame this on you
I tell you that it's not your fault

But honestly, you're killing me
I'm sick of us wasting time
I took your heart, tore it apart
Watching us die tonight

    General CommentZOMG! No one's commented this song!? Well here I go. xD
    I don't understand exactly what it's about but one thing is clear; it's about a relationship failing. And like all of their songs it fucking kicks ass!
    I think it's about a certain arguement that made them break up, and he's saying that he did all he could to make it work, but he's sick of the fighting and I think they ended up cheating(but maybe he was drunk and doesn't remember until way later) on each other at one point, but she thinks he's an idiot and doesn't realize she cheated so in the end he finally breaks and snaps at her, but claims it's not her fault.
    "Everything will be alright
    I'm watching us die tonight"
    I think that part pertains to the way he reacts in his head throughout the arguement, and that he's going to be okay.

    My Opinionyer its about his girl friend an he catches her cheating (what the fuck just happened)they keep arguing an they've probly broken up before (we've been here before breaking off taking action no more lies)i think its just about them 2 keep arguing an keep cheating on each other an then he's finishing it saying its not gonna work out (im not gona blame this on you i know i gave it all i got) he's tried his best to keep it working but he's ending it, (im watching us die tonight) its realy upseting them both an its killing them.

    General CommentI think this song is about a boy and girl breaking up and trying to make it alright in the end. "I tell you it's not your fault" is the guy saying it was my fault and I'm sorry, and the song overall is the guy thinking that it's all better in the end and they're better without each other.
