"Goodbye Cruel World" as written by and Roger Waters....
All my friends are takin' over
To make a mess of me
All my friends are broke and ugly
And make a mess of me

Then I saw a river fall from Heaven
Rain mistakes on me
Then I saw your mother shoot your father
Killed herself the same

All my friends have made a cyclone
To make a mess of me
All my friends have broken silence
To make a mess of me
All my friends are takin' over
To make a mess of me
All my friends are broke and ugly
And make a mess of me

Then I saw a river fall from Heaven
Rain mistakes on me
Then I saw your mother shoot your father
Killed herself the same

Blow it all away
Get the gun out
Load the bullets
Shot that fucker in his head

    General CommentEvery song written by Cold is full of emotion- about personal pains, situations and life in generally kickin' your ass! this one is the same. Sort of a farewell letter from someone broken, that feels like they cant go on. it's just a sad song about real feelings

    General CommentI think it's about the people (parents, friends) that influence your behavior, attitude, and life-styles.

    General CommentCold are awesome, and put a hell of a lot more thought and depth and feeling into their lyrics than many other bands out there.

    Right on with the video ... Scooter looks so damn sexy with his cowboy hat! lol ... and those kids in the video are just creepy.

    General CommentAlthough this is far from a cover, I get the feeling the title of the song and perhaps the whole idea was influenced by Pink Floyd's "Goodbye Cruel World." My opinions on the song is betrayal and being unable to recover from losing the ones you love (family, friends).

    General CommentI think it's actually about someone who's been so surrounded by death and violence and finally just kills himself because he's so desensitized and depressed. Everyone think's he's going to be suicidal, and he just decides that if they expect it of him, it doesn't matter if he does it
