"3 Seconds to Freedom" as written by and Dave Gracia Leigh Kakaty....
You're everything I hate.
You're everything I love.
When everything that's right,
Comes falling from above.
You only wish you could erase,
The walls that hold you down.
Every second that is lost,
Another moment that is found.
Just save yourself, don't let it slip away.

Just save yourself tonight, stop the fight,
Cause everything is over.
You think you got what it takes,
Then get up, get up, get up.
If you want it, then i want it more.
C'mon, 3, 2, 1, we got 3 seconds to freedom.

I am the one who's singled out.
You're the reason I am up in arms.
If there's no turning back,
Then show me where to start.
Cause you're still everything I hate,
You're everything I love.
Now who will save you?
Now who will save you now?
Don't let it slip away.

Just save yourself tonight, stop the fight,
Cause everything is over.
You think you got what it takes,
Then get up, get up, get up.
If you want it, then i want it more.
C'mon, 3, 2, 1, we got 3 seconds to...

Ain't no better time to hate then right now.
Don't let it slip away before the walls come down.
Save yourself tonight, we only get one shot.
We got 3 seconds to freedom.

Just save yourself tonight, stop the fight,
Cause everything is over.
You think you got what it takes,
Then get up, get up, get up.
If you want it, then i want it more
C'mon, 3, 2, 1. we got 3 seconds to...
C'mon, 3, 2, 1. we got 3 seconds to freedom.

    General CommentI always though the lyrics went like this:
    "You're everything I hate, you're everything I loathe..."

    For me this song represented finally separating yourself from a relationship gone bad.

    "Save yourself tonight, stop the fight, because everything... its over"
    Realize that everything is over, that you can't fight for your relationship anymore. Save yourself before the fight ends up killing you.

    "You think you got what it takes then get up"
    Stop hanging onto the past and get back up on that horse.

    "3,2,1. We got 3 seconds to freedom"
    3 seconds is all it can take to finally free yourself.


    I could be way off base with this and I'm not trying to turn this into another emo song or anything. Pop Evil has such a raw rock sound that holds true to a "Gun & Roses-esque" era. Love them. Hope they release more music.
