We were young heartbreakers
Estranged from the wealthy parents
Doing key bumps in the handicap bathroom
Stoned, complacent, ambivalent
Mass communicating with shared subconcious

Suffocation
Modern life in the western world
Suffocation
Modern life in the western world
Suffocation
Modern life in the western world
Suffocation
Modern life in the western world
The western world

Homosexual sons of unfulfilled fathers
Divorced from reality, free and young
We were bashing our brains out on a kitchen cabinet
It was televised crucifixion

Suffocation
Modern life in the western world
Suffocation
Modern life in the western world
Suffocation
Modern life in the western world
Suffocation
Modern life in the western world
The western world

In the western world
In the western world

We were star crossed
We were destitute
Our words spoke mass destruction
We watched the sun rise in the morning
Daughters in arm, we all are orphans

Suffocation
Modern life in the western world
Suffocation
Modern life in the western world
Suffocation
Modern life in the western world
Suffocation
Modern life in the western world
The western world
The western world
In the western world

    General CommentGreat song. Seems to be speaking to the emptiness found in the lives of the wealthy. Or, the children of the wealthy. Key bumps in the bathroom is something I've witnessed many times. Ha, ha. Beyond the lyrics the music is also fantastic. Great dynamics. The chorus explodes and is immediately catchy. Why isn't this on the radio?

    General CommentHey, you see, first two verses speak about parents:
    'wealthy parents' and 'unfulfilled fathers',
    and at the end they 'all are orphans'.

    Maybe being a child in a wealthy family almost = being an orphan. You become spoiled then estranged and find your way to key bumps and a desire for mass destruction.
