Here we are, In the place where you grew up.
Where you spent so much time,
Where you plotted out your life.
These next few lines are a series of events,
About my family and friends,
That kept me further from the edge.

So when the day comes,
That they put me into the ground.
All the ones who claimed they loved me will gather around.
They'll throw flowers down,
And tears will come running down their face.
As they say goodbye and say that I've gone to a better place.

This Is where your vision starts,
Where your visions starts to blur.
Have you ever thought of giving up on what you love the most?
Did you forget, about the ones that you would hurt?
Just a few more seconds then the pain will be gone.

Just hold on, Go ahead let go.
It's not your time, Your time is up.
There is so much more, You should end it here.
You've got your whole life In front of you.
You've got nothing to live for, There's a reason to live.
So pick up that knife, You just can't give up.
Put it through your chest.
Please end it, Please end it all.

It's on the tips of our tongues.
Help me, Hear, Leave me, forgive me.
If I fall, I'll be the one left to lie alone In this mess.
And I know, That If you end your life.
I will be joining you shortly.

You say you need a greater purpose.
I say you need to see what's coming.
When you know, That the feeling is gone.
You'll see this through my eyes and feel alive again.
The road to hell Is paved with good intentions.
The road to hell Is paved with good intentions.

    General CommentThis song is about a couple, and at the beginning the male is telling the female why not to kill herself. "About my family and friends, That kept me further from the edge." Hes also saying he has thought about it before.

    The next part says his family and friends will love him much more if he doesnt wend his life. "As they say goodbye and say that I've gone to a better place." THis is the part when is tells how she starts to lose control, Then relating to that line he says how suicide is a selfish act. "Did you forget, about the ones that you would hurt?" and he says that the pain will soon go away bcause im by your side.

    The next part is an amazing screaming, singing duet ! It represents both sides and this persons thoughts, If she ends her life the guy with be essentially left alone in the world, The guy is very in love with the girl and says he will kill himself if she does. a great part to create beauty from hate.

    "You say you need a greater purpose.
    I say you need to see what's coming.
    When you know, That the feeling is gone.
    You'll see this through my eyes and feel alive again.
    The road to hell Is paved with good intentions."

    amazing, yet simple the male is talking to the female s aying that she needs to open her eyes, she saids she has no feeling to live. And he says look into my eyes and ill give you a reason to live.

    And the last line "The road to hell Is paved with good intentions" just states even when you try to do things right it never works out and you decide to take a different path, the road to hell.

    Thank you.

    General Commenti love the part:

    "And I know, That If you end your life.
    I will be joining you shortly."

    to me it means that the guy loved this girl so much that if she killed herself that the guy would be so sad that he would kill himself too

    it seemes really cheasy in romeo & juliet but this song really brings it out :-D

    General CommentLove the dual vocals in the 3rd verse where it's both sides of the character's conscious talking about whether he should kill himself or not. Great song.

    General Commentahh!
    i love this song.
    i love the screamer, he reminds me of jon mess from dance gavin dance<3
    woot woot :D

    yeah the dual is great, the lyrics match with the screaming.
    but the screaming basically the opposite from what hes actaully saying.
    very nice

    its cute :D

    General Commentthe fourth i think is either the girls you can say "shoulder devil and angel" they are both telling her what to do and the the end lines where it says "Please end it, Please end it all." it is her saying she cant take all this arguing and she just wants to be done with it.
