"Regret" as written by Dennis Steven Jagard, Steven Thomas Carnan, Peter Douglas Newbury and Tony Palermo....
You heard: it's no use trying to make sense, it doesn't matter anyway
There's no one worth the pain, no reason left to stay
I try to turn it off; where did the old me go?
How did I get so far away? I just don't know

Every act of kindness boils down to lust or greed
No one acts from altruism; it all comes down to need
There's a monster inside my heart
He tries to tear my world apart
There's a demon inside my head
Tells me I'd be better off dead

I try to turn it off, get back to positive
Don't want to drag you down to the street where I live
I try to turn it off, get back to happy days
Pull this barrel from my mouth and look for better ways
Every act...

Everything you never tried
Every time you might have lied
Every flaw you tried to hide
Every drop you ever cried
Every time you've been denied
Every tear that ever dried
Everything builds up inside in waves of regret miles wide

    so true. reminds me of an episode of frends that i saw now that i think of it where one of the guys had to do a 100% selfless deed for one of the HOs etc it was pretty cool cuz the monkey got a bananna and stuff, think bout it......is there such thing as a selfless deed?

    General CommentThat line is really powerful and does make you think about whether there is such thing as a selfless deed or not. I think this song is basically about a scitzophrenic or someone going through a tough time mentally and emotionally, and feel so helpless having considered suicide, trying to make things better, and basically they're just thinking everything over and it's frustrating.
