"That Day" as written by Lauren Christy, Graham Edwards, Scott Spock, Patrick Benzner, David Jost, Bill Kaulitz, Tom Kaulitz and David Roth....
Rain falls
It don't
Touch the ground
I can
Recall
An empty house
You say I'm fixed
But I still feel broken
Broken
Lights on
Lights off
Nothing works
I'm cool
I'm great
I'm a jerk
I feed myself lies
With words left unspoken
Gonna be OK
Gonna be OK
One day
One day

That day never came
That day
Never comes
I'm not letting go
I keep hangin' on
Everybody says
That time heals the pain
I've been waiting forever
That day never came

You said I'd be
Comin' home
They said
He's fine
Left alone
The screams in my mind
I keep them a secret
A secret
Doctors and your
Promises
Psychics, healers
I've seen the best
Whatever they sell
Sure to know how to deal with it
Gonna be OK
Gonna be OK
One day
One day

That day never came
That day
Never comes
I'm not letting go
I keep hangin' on
Everybody says
That time heals the pain
I've been waiting forever, forever
That day never came

Gonna be OK
Gonna be OK
One day

That day never came
That day
Never comes
I'm not letting go
I keep hangin' on
Everybody says
That time heals the pain
I've been waiting forever, forever
That day never came
Forever
That day never came

    General CommentThis is about everyone around him telling him fibs and he's waited forever and realized that he shouldn't trust the people around him.

    My InterpretationOkay, m'going to go through it bits at a time.

    Rain falls/It don't touch the ground.
    There's some symbolic meaning here. But all I can pick up is the second part, it's talking about frustration, no release.

    I can recall an empty house/You say I'm fixed but I still feel broken/Broken.
    So, other people are telling him he's alright, but he still feels, well... 'broken'.

    Lights on, lights off/Nothing works.
    Again, there's a sense of frustration here; nothing responds to him, and he feels out of control of the world around him.

    I'm cool. I'm great. I'm a jerk.
    Inner reactions to external expressions. We've all done it: "Yeah, I'm fine..." (mentally)"God, I should die..."

    I feed myself lies/With words left unspoken.
    He lies to himself by omission.

    Gonna be ok, gonna be ok/One day. One day.
    It is what it sounds like. Telling himself he's going to be okay.

    That day never came/That day never comes.
    Nothing's happening, he's still not okay.

    I'm not lettin' go/I keep hangin' on.
    Again, it is what it sounds like.

    Everybody says that time heals the pain.
    (subtext: I don't believe them.)

    I've been waitin' forever/That day never came.
    Pretty obvious here, too.

    You said I'd be comin' home/They said he's fine left alone.
    He feels he's a danger to himself; nobody else sees it, they leave him to his own devices against his will.

    The screams in my mind/I keep them a secret/A secret.
    He keeps his tortured thoughts to himself.

    Doctors and your promises/Psychics, healers, I've seen the best/Whatever they sell sure know how to deal it.
    Again, it's what it sounds like: He's been to many places and people, and they all try to convince him of their pitch. (Also, maybe he believes it at first? And then... it doesn't happen?)


    Gonna be ok, gonna be ok.
    One day. One day.


    One a sidenote, this seriously makes me cry.
    I guess I identify with it somewhat...

    General CommentSong sounds painful, you can hear the emotion he put into it. Guess its an insight into his life
