"Bored To Tears" as written by and Zakk Wylde....
Tired of this
Done with that
Never satisfied with where I'm at
I sit and think
What to do
Just a motherfuckin' bore
Without a clue

Shot my drugs
Drank my booze
Tired of joy and self abuse
Eternally jaded through and through
Just a self loathing dick
Without a clue

Oh
Bored to death
I'm just bored to tears
Same old shit just different day & year
Killed myself but that got boring too
So beyond the point where it's not true

Far beyond high
Dramatically low
Eternal stare as if I care to know
All of this struggle
All of this work
In the end you die like some moronic jerk

Shot my drugs
Drank my booze
Tired of joy and self abuse
Eternally jaded through and through
Just a self loathing fuck
Without a clue

Oh
Bored to death
I'm just bored to tears
Same old shit just different day & year
Killed myself but that got boring too
So beyond the point where it's not true

The colors I see are all bleeding
The sound that was is now standing still
I wonder when it was it all faded
A dullen corpse that cannot be killed

Oh
Bored to death
I'm just bored to tears
Same old shit just different day & year
Killed myself but that got boring too
So beyond the point where it's not true

The rose petalled garden
Yeah...

Alone in the garden
And all that would be
Alone in the garden
You thought would set you free
Nowhere to draw water
And if you could it would be damned
Go on turn your back now
On everything...

Yeah...

    General CommentVery surprised to seeing nobody has really posted on Zakk Wylde and Black Label Society. What a shame. Greatest band ever. Period.

    I think the meaning to this song is pretty self explanitory: " Tired Of This Done With That ...Bored To Death, I'm Just Bored To Tears. Same Old Shit Just Different Day & Year ."

    General CommentI believe this song is about drug and alcohol abuse. tired of joy and self abuse. u love being high or drunk but hate what it does to you and ur life. mind of an addict. another line suggesting this is far beyond high eternally low. you get to a point with drug and alcohol abuse that u push urself to the point of death but its still boring cos ur so immune to it.. just my opinion this song helped motivate me quitting my addictions

    My OpinionThe best thing is to observe how BLS evolved. Zakk Wylde created an amazing band!
