Thumbing through the pages of my fantasies
Pushing all the mercy down, down, down
I wanna see you try to take a swing at me
Come on, gonna put you under ground, ground, ground

Why are you trying to make fun of me?
You think it's funny?
What the fuck you think you're doing to me?
You take your turn lashing out at me
I want you crying when you're bloody at the foot of me

All of my hate cannot be bound
I will not be drowned by your thoughtless scheming
So, you can try to tear me down
Beat me to the ground
I will see you screaming

Thumbing through the pages of my fantasies
I'm above you, smiling at you, drown, drown, drown
I wanna kill and rape you the way you raped me
And I'll pull the trigger
And you're down, down, down

Why are you trying to make fun of me?
You think it's funny?
What the fuck you think you're doing to me?
You take your turn lashing out at me
I want you crying when you're bloody at the foot of me

All of my hate cannot be bound
I will not be drowned by your thoughtless scheming
So, you can try to tear me down
Beat me to the ground
I will see you screaming

All my friends are gone, they died
(Gonna take you down!)
They all screamed and cried
(Gonna take you down!)

I got my body
Got my body back against the wall
(Gonna take you down!)
I got my body
Got my body back against the wall
(Gonna take you down!)
I got my body
Got my body back against the wall
(Gonna take you down!)
I got my body
Got my body back against the wall
(Gonna take you down!)
I got my body
Got my body back against the wall
(Gonna take you down!)
I got my body
Got my body back against the wall
(Gonna take you down!)
I got my body
Got my body back against the wall
(Gonna take you down!)
I got my body
Got my body back against the wall
(Gonna take you down!)
I got my body
Got my body back against the wall
(Gonna take you down!)

All of my hate cannot be bound
I will not be drowned by your thoughtless scheming
So, you can try to tear me down
Beat me to the ground
I will see you screaming

All of my hate cannot be bound
I will not be drowned by your thoughtless scheming
So, you can try to tear me down
Beat me to the ground
I will see you screaming

    General CommentI think this is about how Jon was made fun of and all that shit, and how he's not going to get taken down by it, and he'll be the one laughing in the end

    General CommentI think this song is actually based on the Columbine school shootings. These lyrics are through the eyes of one of the killers. The world told them that they were nobodies, that they would never amount to anything - and they proved everybody wrong because the media turned them into superstars. That shows you how our society twists the loss of so many lives into a hollow television frenzy. It's ironic that this is turning out to be one of the most popular songs on Untouchables. I don't think that many fans realize what it's really about.

    General CommentDeathRockyBoy is right I don't think most people really understand what the meaning to "Thoughtless" really is. And the fact that this is the 2nd single off Untouchables it is bound to stir up the critics and hopefully open the eyes of people to what teasing and ridicule can drive someone to do.

    General CommentIve seen the video. Johnathan is awesome. The video is about this guy who get beat up and teased non stop. In one scene, he simply dives into the pool at school, and these jocks go over and try to drown him. then hes sitting by himself in the locker room, and thinkin. these faces start poking out of his back. then he is shown in his room looking at the yearbook, and it seems as though john is talking to him. in the next scene, he walkis into the prom with this girl with this hell-ish look on her face. she takes off her coat and it looks like theyres somehting like a devil as a dress.all the jocks look up... youll have to see the ending!!!!!!!!!its too good!
