Put the gun to your head.
Now pull the trigger.
Do you think if you were dead that you'd feel better?
I know of millions who would kill to fill your shoes.
An endless list of names who know real pain and abuse.

But you're convinced that you're a wreck.
Your life's a mess you just can't fix.
It seems you'd rather give up than try.
Fuck the effort.
Just lay down and die.

Is this your emo solution?
You've given in to depression and delusion.
You'd like to think that you're the only one who has ever hurt. But we've all had sand thrown in our face and received a mouth full of dirt.

So climb on out of your rut, or get buried alive.
Because you don't deserve to live if you won't save your own life.

    this song is about how all these whiny emo fags feel sorry for themselves, and they don't ever stop to think about how good they have it. boohoo, girls dont like you, deal with it, dont ever give up on yourself. keep, "you don't deserve to live, if you wont save your own life."

    This song isnt about "whiny emo fags." the band has said that themselves. Its about anyone who is feeling down. The 'emo' in the title is simply short for emotion. The message is clearly one trying to pick someone up and let them see whats wrong with how they are acting while being all depressed or in a "rut." Nothing accusitory or violent or derogitory towards emo kids here.

    I just have to say that this song is not about emo either, its about the emotional response triggered by depression. It has nothing to do with emo music or emo kids in general, but it has to do with pulling yourself out of a mess, a mess so deep that you need to be blown out of it with an amazing song. This is lyrics at thier best, the kind that can save a life and turn it down a diffrent path, listen to the song with your soul, not your self endulgent ego before you make comments like that next time. We are all Emo. If your not, then I pray for your cold soul.
