Hey its alright my life has never been a bed of roses
This way's better for me
Hey its alright my life has never been a bed of roses
This way's better for me i dont' care to live the life i've chosen
Anyway
Anyway
Hey its alright my life has always been a sad emotion
Don't feel sorry for me.
Hey its alright my life has always been a sad emotion
Don't feel sorry for me feeling sorry's been my lifes devotion
Anyway
Anyway
Hey its alright my life has never been a bed of roses
This way's better for me i dont' care to live the life i've chosen
Hey its alright my life has always been a sad emotion
Don't feel sorry for me feeling sorry's been my lifes devotion
Anyway
Anyway
Screw you, the sentiments the same my friend
Screw you, the sentiments the same it always was

Screw you, the sentiments the same my friend
Screw you, the sentiments the same it always was

My life has never been a bed of roses
my life has never been a bed of roses
my life has never been a bed of roses
my life has never been a bed of roses ....

    General CommentI love love LOVE MSI!
    it looks to me like he want to kill himself cuz his life's never been a "bed or roses" meaning it sucks but he doesnt want people to be sorry for him because they say the same thing all the time and it doesnt help.

    General CommentThe last two posts, frighten me. Let's get this straight. If someone seriously wants to commit suicide, they will. And they wont write a song about it, or leave a sad letter behind. Think about it. Why leave evidence behind? You're risking someone finding it and eventually stopping you or pro-longing you from commiting suicide. That's not what a real suicidal person would want, now is it?
    The way I see it, is if you leave something behind, or through something in someone's face about you wanting to commit suicide, you probably don't really intend to do it. You're just using that scenario as a way of really getting someone's full undivided attention.
    That's not to say, however, that if one does not recieve this attention, one will not suddenly sink into deeper depression, and eventually have suicidal tendencies....
    ....just what in the fuck am I rambling on about? I gotta get back to work.

    General CommentI agree with Soulfly about the people who say such things to get attention, but the song is a whole different story. It seems to be a note left behind by someone who already did die and the song is what's left of them to be remembered, since everything in the song is sung in past tone. The songs meaning though seems to just be a careless life where the person got no attention, no love, and had nothing so why keep going? Sadly that person didn't and now that the persons gone no one should feel sorry since they never tried anything before.

    General CommentI think it's kinda like saying, His life has never been easy, but it's the path he chose, so he's going to stick with it, through all the hard times, and he doesn't want anyone to feel sorry for him in any way.

    General CommentI do not agree with Soulfly about talking about committing suicide only for attention. If someone is sick enough to talk about killing themself there is obviously something wrong and they need help - no matter if you think they will actually do it or not. By the time you read a suicide note it's probably to late to save that person's life. I think people who commit suicide leave notes or poems because it's not like they can go up to their loved ones and be like "I wanted to let you know I love you and I am going to kill myself." It is not left to be evidence - their dead body is evidence. Some artists write songs about it - doing it - but it's just a song. Some find suicide fascinating or frightening - or maybe just because it fits in their song. But when a person actually turns around and talks about doing it - wanting to do it - then we need to take that seriously before it's too late. If you are the person they choose to talk to about it - make it your responsibility to help them or find someone who can.

    General Commentit's a song. mindless is rarely serious and when they are they still aren't. so you all wasted your time with this suicide discussion. ha ha ha. grow up a little and learn to look at things in different ways or else you may keep wasting your life on small pity trivialized things such as these. Thank you. now go to bed.
