I'm always short on cash and my mind is in the trash.
I can't find a way to get my head out of my ass.
I'm gettin' skinny as a bone
'cause I'm always stuck at home.
I'm living my life all fucked up and alone.
So once again,
Alone in my room,
My only apparent future is my unhappy doom.
So I just whine all the fucking time.
I'm hooked bad on caffeine,
Unless I get it I'm mean.
I can't remember last when I was chipper and clean.
I'm going insane, all I do is complain.
The only traits I show are depression and disdain.
The girl I love is going away,
There is no way that she'll stay.
I don't know how I'm gonna live my life this way.
Don't want to have to try,
I'll just sit around and cry.
Maybe, if I get lucky,
I'll just fuckin' die.

    General CommentThis is a great song I listen to when I'm depressed and feel like the world has turned it's back on me which surprisingly I feel alot..."Don't want to have to try, I'll just sit around and cry. Maybe, if I get lucky, I'll just fuckin' die."

    General CommentI think the meaning of this song is pretty obvious. The lyrics are pretty cool, and it's by AFI, so what's not to love? And I love the title too, so fitting.

    General CommentThis song is about as straight forward as AFI gets, and its fucking tight. the scream in the begining of the track is great and you know there was a ton of emotion put into it. What makes this song even better is that it was origionaly released of the 7" "Dork" vinyl, AFI's first release. It was then rereleased on "Answer That and Stay Fasionable" but only on the vinyl version. Now, maybe if I get lucky I'll just fucking die.

    General CommentI like this song but i wrote a song titled self pity before I new this one existed its alot different but about the same thing basically, a little more about suicide but along the same lines cause I wrote it because of a chic.

    self pitty

    I never thought id be like them
    I never brought the gun to my head
    They need escape, they need to be wanted
    There heartbroken from unspoken words
    Some may have had an ego
    They may have had esteem
    Always lookin for something inside
    Self pitty, I sayed id never live my life feeling sorry for myself

    I never wanted to be like them
    Never brought the gun down from there head
    Needed escape they had to be dead
    They are rarely spoken they where heartbroken
    Some of them had a reason and though they had a dream
    Always lookin to put a bullet in there own
    Self Pitty,they all lived there lives feelling sorry for them selfes

    I never thought shed make me like them
    I cant beleve the gun is on my head
    She never listened to a word that i sayed
    Mabe shell here my message as soon as im dead

    I woke up after a bad dream realized its more than it seems
    Always a reason to put a bullet in your
    Self Pitty, theres more to live than killing your dreams
    Self Pitty, theres more to life than just the
    Self Pitty, more than it seems , never kill dreams for
    Self Pitty
