"Nothing To Lose" as written by Aaron Solowoniuk, Jon Gallant, Ben Kowalewicz and Ian D'sa....
Need more friends with wings
All the angels I know
Put concrete in my veins
I'd always walk home alone
So I became lifeless
Just like my telephone

There's nothing to lose
When no one knows your name
There's nothing to gain
But the days don't seem to change

Never played truth or dare
I'd have to check my mirror
To see if I'm still here
My parents had no clue
That I ate all my lunches
Alone in the bathroom

There's nothing to lose
When no one knows your name
There's nothing to gain
But the days don't seem to change
There's nothing to lose
My notebook will explain
There's nothing to gain
And I can't fight the pain

Teach us that its just a phase
When I grow up my children
Will probably do the same
Kids just love to tease
I know it put me under ground
At seventeen

There's nothing to lose
When no one knows your name
There's nothing to gain
But the days don't seem to change
There's nothing to lose
When no one knows your name
There's nothing to gain
And I just died today

    General CommentThis song is definitely about how a kid feels when they are bullied. "All the angels i know put concrete in my veins" is describing how sometimes the people close to you cannot help make the pain go away. "I'd always walk home alone so i became lifeless just like my telephone" is describing how a person being bullied feels like they are on the outside looking in and just watching their life go by instead of living it. Also, you truly feel like you have nothing to lose after a while. "I'd have to check my mirror to see if i'm still here" is referring to the outside looking in feeling such as above. The days also never seem to change. The "Teach us that it's just a phase" is a reference to how people around you justify it. Teacher's will say you are being over sensitive, parents will hope it just goes away, and the bullies parents will say that their kid would never do that. Finally the "And i just died today" part describes perfectly how you feel at the end of every day or it can mean the person killed themselves. That's what i think. BTW, i've seen Billy Talent in concert and this song rocks live.
