Time's rollin' forward
I'm gettin' bored
Layin' on my back
I'm losin' track
Shifting patterns
And nothin' matters
Cause there's no one here
I've lost my fear

Well I've got no place left to hide
I'm runnin' out of time
Moving slowly
The walls are closing
In on me
I can not see
Appearing fine, well
That's all a lie
Cause I'm not alright

Extinct inside
I'm runnin' out of time
My mother says I'm fine
A teenage suicide
No place to hide
Well I've got no place left to hide
No place to hide
Well I'm runnin' out of time
No place to hide
Ya, I've got no place left to hide
No place to hide
A teenage suicide

    sad meaning... truthful lyrics... smashing guitar tracks wich sting like needles. This song will take your adreneline levels to a whole new level. It's a self destructive psycopathic song wich hints to the eluding of one's self inflicted end as an escape hatch from thier own lives. Yes, this is sad. However, it's the truth faced my many thousands of humans today. The way the lyrics are mixed with stimulating, fast-paced, energetic guitars resembles the chain of events, and the last days of this one's life. It has built from plesant and peaceful to this insane chaos we call "A Teenage Suicide."

    I love this song... but its scary. Many people, including me, have seriously thought of suicide. It's sad, but extremely scary. There are countless songs on this topic, tons of cases of suicide, and millions of distrought teens are all lying alone in their beds wondering if they should kill themselves. This song shows that you can't judge a book by its cover, he's appearing fine, but is not alright, extinct inside.

    Well, it was nice to read the insults about suicidal people. It's a frame of mind. When you get enough people telling you that you should die for a long time straight, you kinda take a hint. It messes with your head. I'll never be okay. So, I can really identify with this song. Great song!

    songs like this usually help me when im depressed. it's weird but if i listen to a happy upbeat song when im depressed it doesn't help at all cuz it doesn't match my mood. so this and adam's song and last resort usually help me. this shong also reminds me that im not the only one who's suicidal. it also shows that you can't judge people based on what they seem like.

    Ew. This song describes me so much at the moment that I'm scared. I didn't even realize it until now.

Ave Grave

So this has been.my favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
