bound to learn the hard way
this is the human condition
there is nothing that can be said
to stop us from making mistakes
when i look to myself as a source of ending pain
no matter how many times before i've failed

it seems our problems solve themselves
when we look beyond us to those truly in hell

the more i focus on myself
then the more helpless that i become
so why not erase this point of view?
my suffering is trivial
compared to those who know real agony

it seems our problems solve themselves
when we look beyond us to those truly in hell
it seems our problems solve themselves
when we look beyond our suffering

my trials seem insignificant now

why won't we look beyond us?
why won't we look beyond our despair?
it seems our problems solve themselves
when we look to those truly in hell

personal redemption cannot change the world
unless we lay down our lives for those who still suffer

    General Commenti think this song is pretty obvious..... but basically i think its saying that if you think you have it bad, think of someone whose really struggeling.... like those truly in hell.... and im not sure whether thats supposed to be a metaphor or whether hes literally talking about those in hell.... but we in america have life so easy and if one little thing gets messed up we get all bent out of shape about it but theres always someone who has it worse than you......

    General CommentWe all make such big deals of the problems we have, but if we take a deeper look, it id NOTHING compared to what others suffer, and they look down sadly upon us because of it. That is my interpretation.
