Time gets wasted every day
I watch the minutes tick away
My brain is melting like a
chocolate ice cream bar
Like characters on TV
these people look like maggots
to me and I wonder what the
hell is wrong with me
Milk fed little beauty queen
she's straight out of a magazine
she sits beside me
breathing different air than me
The perfect generation sees that I'm
infected with disease and
everything just crumbles
and there's nothing left
If I want to do something right
I gotta do it myself or someone
else will fuck it up
It isn't all black and white
and now it's time to stop
and figure out reality
No one knows what they're
talking about if what they're talking
about don't making any sense to me
I gotta figure it out
cause I don't want something
to believe in

    General CommentThis sounds sounds like it's about not relating to other people and therefore not trusting them. Ultimately, feeling alien to everyone, whether or on TV, or to your significant other. And when realizing that, you realize you can't trust anyone to do anything correctly, and ultimately that you can't trust anything anyone says... And now you're left trying to put the pieces back together on your own.

    General CommentWhat the fuck?? only two comments??

    My brain hurts too...

    Well anyway, I love the part
    "If I wanna do something right
    I gotta do it myself or someone
    else will fuck it up"
    Exactly how I feel. I'm some sort of control freak...

    General CommentI think this is a song about individuality... SO many different opinions out there, so much confusion inside, yet everyone else seems so fucking certain! "I wonder what the hell is wrong with me?"

    Also judging the "sheeple".. "these people look like maggots". "She's straight out of a magazine, breathing different air than me"

    We've been fed so much shit from the society, our parents, etc. Just because they said it's this way doesn't mean it is. Thus, "I gotta figure it out, cus I don't want something to believe in!"

    I don't want to BELIEVE in anything. I want to KNOW.

    But the journey from ignorance to knowing is not easy. It's a fucking mindfuck. That's why, my brain hurts!!! There's so much fucking shit to process. But here we are doing it anyway, because the other way, taking shit at face value, sucks.
