"Sometimes" as written by and John Cooper....
Sometimes when I lie
I know you're on to me
Sometimes I don't mind
How hateful that I can be

Sometimes I don't try
To make you happy
I don't know why I do the things I do to you but

Sometimes I don't wanna be better
Sometimes I can't be put back together
Sometimes I find it hard to believe
There's someone else who could be
Just as messed up as me

Sometimes don't deny
That everything is wrong
Sometimes rather die
Than to admit it's my fault

Sometimes when you cry
I just don't care at all
I don't know why I do the things I do to you but

Sometimes I don't wanna be better
Sometimes I can't be put back together
Sometimes I find it hard to believe
There's someone else who could be
Just as messed up as me

I want someone to hurt
Like the way I hurt
It's sick but it makes me feel better

Sometimes I can't hide
The demons that I face
Sometimes don't deny
I'm sometimes sinner sometimes saint

Sometimes I don't wanna be better (everything is gone forever)
Sometimes I can't be put back together (sometimes its gone forever)
Sometimes I find it hard to believe
There's someone else who could be
Just as messed up as me
Just as messed up as me

    General CommentAnyone with depression, this is perfect. I personally don't understand how someone else could hurt this much. This song describes everything about depression, self-harm, and suicidal thoughts just perfectly.

    General CommentThis couldnt be more honest.... sometime we just dont want to be better! We find it hard to stick to what we believe and do what we know its right... skillet its actually not an exclusive christian band but their songs speak about the struggle to be a christian and not feeling like a saint sometimes... "IM SOMETIMES A SINNER AND SOMETIMES A SAINT" we all know we aint perfect, we all have our good days and bad weeks hahaha to be saint doesnt mean we are going to be perfect, it means we are able to change from bad to good.. lets keep it honest and sincere to God and he will help us in our struggle

    General CommentLove this song. Kind of reminds me how I went through a suicide reaction and sometimes I keep trying to hide my true feeling about how I felt with life. Sometimes I would lie about my true feelings. I don't care how I hurt others or how much I say I hate them. There are times I don't try to make others happy because I am very disagreeable what they say. Even I don't know why I do these things. If people ask why do you sometimes do these things? I keep saying "I don't know". There are times I hate people trying to make me better. There are times I don't wanna feel better. I really do find it hard to believe someone has the same problems as me. There are times when something is truly wrong with me, I will deny it and say "I'm fine." I don't care if it's my fault for what I've done to myself was wrong. When my mother cries about how I act towards her, I never cared.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about the struggle of someone who's been told to be good all the time, and perhaps by association they're expected to be the image of purity. but sometimes,they just don't want to be. they want to live their own way even if their conscience says not to

    My InterpretationI think this is saying Christians aren't perfect, they get mad a whole lot and they regret what they said just as much as anybody else
