Hey you, living for tomorrow,
You sold your dreams for a pocket of change.
Hey you smokin up your sorrow,
Just pointing fingers at someone to blame.

Hey you, you turn your back on your children
It's left you in the big burning bed
This life's like livin in the gutter,
All this pain just makes you feel dead.

You're just givin' it all, givin' it all away,
You're just givin' it all, givin' it all away,
Hey, hey, ey yey, why ey, ey,

Slow down just look a little closer,
You might find that it's not the end.
You wonder how your life could get better,
When you're alone you just tear yourself down.

You're just givin' it all, givin' it all away,
You're just givin' it all, givin' it all away,

You're just givin' it all, givin' it all away,
You're just givin' it all, givin' it all away,
Hey, hey, ey yey, why ey, yey,

Try and find your better half now,
Open your eyes and find yourself.

Hey girl screamin for attention,
Once you get it you throw it away.
I'm broken, I'm pickin up the pieces
I won't live in all your mistakes.

I'm just givin' it all, givin' it all away,
I'm just givin' it all, givin' it all away.

I'm just givin' it all, givin' it all away,
I'm just givin' it all, givin' it all away.

I'm just giving it up, givin it all away,
Hey, hey, ey yey, why ey, ey.

    General Commentlol well you never know natalie portman could look like a man in twenty years time...dunno plastic surgery could have gone wrong...you never know these things.

    Also ok most of their songs are about suicide and self harm and lost love and whatever else you said but so what, there really good songs and oh my god i just LOVE them.

    And hes a perfect role model because he got through all the bad stuff and came out on top, he only writes about what he knows, he knows about suicide, he knows about lost love, he knows about self harm and drug use adn whatever else so the songs are even better because hes been in teh situation, i mean people say Kurt Cobain is a good role model but i mean he blew his head to pieces...so whats better a guy that was in shit and then killed himself or a guy that was in shit and got through it all... i know who i'd say..

    also im not a 'impressionable youngster'
