I'm not evil,
You're just weak,
You're too afraid to tast something so sweet,
It's ok,
More for me,
I think you're better off dead.

I can't deny what is a part of me,
I take joy out of your misery,
Lay down,
Lay down,
Lay down,
I guess that's what you do best.

I can't give you what you need but I can give you what you want,
I've found that all the thing I love I despise,
I can't give what you you need but I can give you what you want,
And when you hate the things you love,
Then learn to love the things that you hate.

I want one thing,
Suffering,
I want one thing,
You living in hell,
It's so much better than apologies,
I want to watch it swell,
Don't need to be the one who does it to you,
Don't need to twist the knife or push it through,
Just want to see that you're in misery too,
Just like me inside.

Their greedy eyes light up,
They're salivating,
Everyone knows there's no better way,
It's like a crime to you,
It's like the best for me,
Let it all out.

You can't give me what I need but you will give me what I want,
And then I'll leave what's left of you to the flies,
You can't give us what we need but you will give us what we want,
My dear your guests are waiting,
Time to begin.

I want one thing,
Suffering,
I want one thing,
You living in hell,
It's so much better than apologies,
I want to watch it swell,
Don't need to be the one who does it to you,
Don't need to twist the knife or push it through,
Just want to see that you're in misery too,
Just like me inside.

I think you're better off dead,
I think you're better off dead,
I think you're better off dead,
I think you're better off dead,

I want one thing,
Suffering,
I want one thing,
You living in hell,
It's so much better than apologies,
I want to watch it swell,
Don't need to be the one who does it to you,
Don't need to twist the knife or push it through,
Just want to see that you're in misery too,
Just like me inside.

    My InterpretationPretty sure it's about hurting other people to make yourself feel better.
    The word Schadenfreude means "satisfaction or pleasure felt at someone else's misfortune".

    Self explanatory, really.
