This song was written for eminem and how stupid he is....
Dare me to jump off of this Jersey bridge
I bet you never had a Friday night like this
Keep it up, keep it up, let's raise our hands
I take a look up at the sky and I see
Red for the cancer, red for the wealthy
Red for the drink that's mixed with suicide
Everything red

Please, won't you push me for the last time
Let's scream until there's nothing left
So sick of playing, I don't want this anymore
The thought of you's no fucking fun
You want a martyr, I'll be one
Because enough's enough, we're done

You told me think about it, well I did
Now I don't wanna feel a thing anymore
I'm tired of begging for the things that I want
I'm over sleeping like a dog on the floor

The thing I think I love
Will surely bring me pain
Intoxication, paranoia, and a lot of fame
Three cheers for throwing up
Pubescent drama queen
You make me sick, I make it worse by drinking late

Scream until there's nothing left
So sick of playing, I don't want to anymore
The thought of you's no fucking fun
You want a martyr I'll be one
Because enough's enough, we're done

You told me think about it, well I did
Now I don't wanna feel a thing anymore
I'm tired of begging for the things that I want
I'm over sleeping like a dog on the floor

Imagine living like a king someday
A single night without a ghost in the walls
And if the bass shakes the earth underground
We'll start a new revolution now
(Now! Alright here we go)

Hail Mary, forgive me
Blood for blood, hearts beating
Come at me, now this is war!

Fuck with this new beat
Oh!

Now terror begins inside a bloodless vein
I was just a product of the street youth rage
Born in this world without a voice or say
Caught in the spokes with an abandoned brain
I know you well but this ain't a game
Blow the smoke in diamond shape
Dying is a gift so close your eyes and rest in peace

You told me think about it, well I did
Now I don't wanna feel a thing anymore
I'm tired of begging for the things that I want
I'm over sleeping like a dog on the floor

Imagine living like a king someday
A single night without a ghost in the walls
We are the shadows screaming take us now

We'd rather die than live to rust on the ground
Shit

    My InterpretationIt is a story. It is about a person who is thinking about committing suicide by jumping off of a bridge. The person thinks life is unfair, they have never had a say. When the protagonist says "Enough's enough were done" I have 2 theories he is either going through a breakup and that is why he is committing suicide as well or he is speaking to the world/life itself. He is having this raging war in his head, asking for forgiveness over what he is about to do (Hail Mary, forgive me. blood for blood hearts beating) he is scared and does not know what to do. In the actual song the last time they sing the chorus they sound a little weary, and angry. Then the song says "We rather die then live to rust on the ground" He jumped he regrets it explaining why he randomly says "shit" at the end.

    Dare me to jump off this Jersey bridge
    I bet you never had a Friday night like this
    Keep it up, keep it up
    Let's raise our hands

    I take a look up in the sky and I see red,
    Red for the cancer, red for the wealthy,
    Red for the drink that’s mixed with suicide
    Everything red

    Please, won’t you push me for the last time
    Let's scream until there’s nothing left
    So sick of playing, I don’t want this anymore
    The thought of you is no fucking fun
    You want a martyr, I’ll be one
    Because enough's enough
    We’re done

    You told me, “Think about it”
    Well, I did, now I don’t wanna feel a thing anymore
    I’m tired of begging for the things that I want
    I’m over sleeping like a dog on the floor

    The thing I think I love will surely bring me pain,
    Intoxication, paranoia, and a lot of fame

    Three cheers for throwing up
    Pubescent drama queen, you make me sick
    I make it worse by drinking late

    Scream until there’s nothing left
    So sick of playing, I don’t want to anymore
    The thought of you is no fucking fun
    You want a martyr, I’ll be one
    Because enough's enough
    We’re done

    We are the shadows screaming, "Take us now"
    We'd rather die than live to rust on the ground

    My InterpretationThis song basically means that people have pushed them too far and that they are practically ready to escape life so their final words are fuck you im going to a higher place get on my level and that sooner or later people will bow down to them and that even if they aren't missed when they're gone it doesn't matter because in the end they got what they wanted which is to escape

    General CommentThis song is about getting pushed past your breaking point. Sometimes I feel like there are just too many things weighing on my mind at once and I can’t control my thoughts or even my body at times. Mike came up with the title and I thought it was a perfect way to describe the song. We wrote the music for this song with my friends Curtis Peoples and Steve Miller in a cabin that we converted into a studio in Big Bear, California. For months, fans had been tweeting at me to do a song with Kellin Quinn from the band Sleeping with Sirens. I had never met him before, but we started talking on Twitter due to our mutual fans. I asked him if he’d be down to do a song together and the rest was history! Big thanks to our boy Kellin’s for joining forces and making something special with us.

    Song ComparisonWell this is kind of like "Smells like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana if you ask me. It's just saying "fuck this we're doing what we want and you cant tell us otherwise." You're killing us by making us fit in and be normal." The "Red for the cancer, red for the wealthy, Red for the drink that's mixed with suicide" line is saying,"you're killing us (red for blood, the wealthy are people forcing them to conform to the society and fit in, the cancer is the society that's slowly killing them, and the drink that's mixed with suicide is alcohol or drugs that are killing them.) In the "You told me think about it, well I did, Now I don't want to feel a thing at all, I'm tired of begging for the things that I want, I'm over sleeping on the floor like a dog" lines in the chorus, they're saying that they don't want to live in a world where they can't live like themselves or have their way. The "Load up on guns, bring your friends, It's fun to lose and to pretend, She's over-bored and self-assured, Oh no, I know a dirty word" verse in "Smells like Teen Spirit" is saying practically the same thing.
