Brief little horrors send men to their graves
Without foresight they can’t escape
They call on their loved ones with no avail
Doomed to fail
-
They scream pick up pick up
But no one is listening
Get up, get up, do you hear a thing
I’ve called you once and now I’ve called you twice
With a dead line
=
(Pre-Chorus)
Well, well, this truly is a shame
But from day one I knew you’d change
+
(Chorus)
I don’t wanna live in a world like this
Where ignorance is bliss
Go on you’ve got your wish
Just exist
I don’t wanna live in a world like this
Infatuation takes its tole
You’ve played your roll
Love’s not real
-
With constant blurring I’ll forget your face
Memories fading without a trace
Wait for a relapse or something to break
Then you’ll be back
-
Nights like these
Where I feel real
Reality sets in and I’ll be gone again
=
(Pre-Chorus)
Well, well, this truly is a shame
But from day one I knew you’d change
+
(Chorus)
I don’t wanna live in a world like this
Where ignorance is bliss
Go on you’ve got your wish
Just exist
I don’t wanna live in a world like this
Infatuation takes its tole
You’ve played your roll
Love’s not real

Love’s not real

The queen of hearts
is tearing me apart

I will not give in
I will not give in

(Chorus)
I don’t wanna live in a world like this
Where ignorance is bliss
Go on you’ve got your wish
Just exist
I don’t wanna live in a world like this
Infatuation takes its tole
You’ve played your roll
Love’s not real

I don’t wanna live in a world like this
I don’t wanna live in a world like this

    My Interpretation(What I personally take from this song, so not a true interpretation)

    I believe the song focus on girlfriend that has either cheated or left the protagonist, furthermore the protagonist has realized he has 2 choices:

    a) forget her and move on with his life or
    b) chosen to be spiteful and alone, e.g. 'I don’t wanna live in a world like this'

    This line from the lyrics indicates that he has lost hope and chosen to go with option b.

    Another thing stated in the lyrics is that this event took place a long time ago, the lines 'With constant blurring I’ll forget your face; Memories fading without a trace' states this.

    I like to think that the song shows the protagonists passion towards how cruel relationships can be when people change as they can grow apart.

    P.S. I know its not the most correct statement, but I visualize this when I listen to the song, often using my own memories to put the puzzle together.

    Thanks for reading :D
