"A Flat" as written by and Michael J. Mushok....
Trust In me can't trust I'm the whore I don't believe it
All my life so scarred what for who you can't conceive it
Everything you fear I'll be here you couldn't live it
I whisper in your ear so loud why can't you hear it

I'm OK

All my faith is gone you think I couldn't find it
Pieces falling down shattered now get behind it
In my mind alone Lost in here I'm separated
Crawl deeper in my hole safe in here from what I hated

All the demons in my head won't leave me
I know I can hear them
All the sacrifices made for nothing
Don't show can't believe it
Want to show that I'm good for something
I can't you won't let me
Are you running cause your words won't heal me
Because you can't accept me

And I hate myself
And I hate my face
And I hate my world
And I hate my ways

And I
And I
And I

I'm not okay

I'm OK

Trust In me can't trust I'm the whore I don't believe in
All my life so scarred what for who you can't conceive it
Everything you fear I'll be here you couldn't live it
I whisper in your ear why can't you feel it

All the demons in my head won't leave me
I know I can hear them
All the sacrifices made for nothing
Don't show can't believe in
Want to show that I'm good for something
I can't you won't let me
Are you running cause your words won't heal me
Because you can't accept me

I don't believe it
I don't believe it

    General CommentSounds like a guy who hates himself because he cant fit in with anybody. Sending him deeper into depression and making him hate everything about life. Kind of relates to alot of people.

    General Commentthe writer has been so hurt by many people he doesnt trust anything or anyone anymore.. all he wanted to do was fit in but nobody would accept him for who he was.. he want's to 'show people that he's good for something' but nobody will listen or pay him mind. It's about acceptance.. and he WANTED to be accepted but he never was.. so he thought there was something wrong with him and learned to hate himself and everything around him ' i hate myself, my face, my world, my ways'.
    -- ie an elaboration on tool.freak's ( maybe I should start reading other peoples interpretations before I start to write a paragraph of my own )

    General CommentThis song is mostly self-explanatory. But some people have asked me what the "I'm not OK" "I'm OK" parts mean. They are representing the nonstableness of pyshcohological state.

    General CommentIn my opinion, this song has the single greateast, single most perfectly written, probably the most relatable lyrics of any song I've ever heard.

    "And I hate myself and I hate my face and I hate my world and I hate my ways."

    I don't know about you guys, but when I hear this, it's like, everything that I am not, all my imperfections, all my shortcomings, everything that makes me not good enough, it just makes me hate myself even more.

    I love this song and this CD is probably getting more playtime in any of my radios that any other. Aaron Lewis uses simple, plain, ordinary words and makes myself and millions of others feel terribly inadequate as people and it is sheer brilliance.
