Yes it was all for nothing,
I feel as though I did this all for nothing,
I cannot, and do not wish to understand,
Why the bullets took down this man.
For it was all for nothing.
Don't you plague me unknown judge,
For it was all for something,
But I haven't found out why...

[refrain]
(Come on totally)
GO! Where to be no no no no,
GO! Where to be no no no no,
I took my life this day!
Do you believe it,
No you fucking say.
I took her life this day!
No you still don't get it!
I took YOUR SOUL THIS DAY!
No you really don't know why,
I ENDED THE WORLD TODAY!
All because of your stupid rhyme!
[refrain]

And you left me here!
No time dear, no words to say,
Won't you please just run away...

Yes it was all for nothing,
I feel as though I died for something,
I well not, and I shouldn't have to understand,
Why the medicine took my life on down,
For it was all for nothing,
Don't you plague me unknown judge,
For it was for something,
But I just really don't know.....

    General CommentWell this songs basically about a guy who woke up one morning, everything was going fine for him. He wakes up, everythings screwed up around him. Hes basically wanted by the court system (hes on the run from the law). He stammers on, how about what his crime was for nothing it was meaningless. Hidden in the line: I took YOUR SOUL THIS DAY! Is the fact that he assasinated a high government offical out of a religious fervor. He basically finds his girlfriend, who he leaves. And he runs and is finally caught. The last 4 lines describe his lethal injection... (Why the medicine took my life on down).
