"Better Off Dead" as written by Cyrus William Bolooki, Chad Everett Gilbert, Ian R. Grushka, Stephen Lee Klein and Jordan I. Pundik....
Ash his heart onto the ground
Pull his guts out by frustration
Be careful you might kill him

Just cause he can't hear what you say
Doesn't mean that he's not listening
If you listen to your words
He might like what you say

So you've been going out for years
And I'm sure that you've been happy
Happy with your role

You've been looking up to him
As if you've forgotten of your own life
Forgotten of your own face
Burn and start again

Just cause he can't hear what you say
Doesn't mean that he's not listening
If you listen to your words
HE might like what you say

On my own again
That's what she said
I'm leaving you tomorrow
But she already left
She already left me
She said I'm better off dead
It's your own life
Live it for yourself
It's your own life
Live for your

Just cause he can't hear what you say
Doesn't mean that he's not listening
If you listen to your words
He might like what you say

On my own again
That's what she said
|I'm leaving you tomorrow
But she already left
She already left me
She said I'm better off dead

    General CommentI know this probably isn't what the song is saying but it says to me that if you can be with someone that you really love, you'd rather be dead. I feel like that sometimes. Thanks.

    General Commenti think its about a girl whos been dating a way too controlling guy. She doesn't really know who she is anymore, but when she finally figures out she should leave this guy she leaves fast and tells him she's better off dead....
