"The Kill (Bury Me)" as written by and Jared Leto....
What if I wanted to break
Laugh it all off in your face
What would you do?
What if I fell to the floor
Couldn't take all this anymore
What would you do, do, do?

Come, break me down
Bury me, bury me
I am finished with you

What if I wanted to fight
Beg for the rest of my life
What would you do?
You say you wanted more
What are you waiting for?
I'm not running from you

Come, break me down
Bury me, bury me
I am finished with you
Look in my eyes
You're killing me, killing me
All I wanted was you

I tried to be someone else
But nothing seemed to change
I know now, this is who I really am inside
I've finally found myself
Fighting for a chance
I know now, this is who I really am

Come, break me down
Bury me, bury me
I am finished with you, you, you
Look in my eyes
You're killing me, killing me
All I wanted was you
Come, break me down
Break me down
Break me down

What if I wanted to break
What if I, what if I, what if I (bury me, bury me)

    General CommentPondering deeply within the songs words, seems like he's talking about "trying to be someone else, but nothing seems to change I know now, this is who I really am inside"

    So he tried to change himself, but even that didn't work.

    "All I wanted was you" she's all that he wanted

    "What if I fell to the floor, couldn't take this anymore, what would you do? What if I wanted to fight, beg for the rest of my life, what would you do?" Basically he just wants to know that she'll be there for him. The screaming means that he wants her but he might as well be buried because no matter how much she tries to change him, he can't change himself, all he wants is her, but it doesn't seem like it's working out for them two. If he changes, it's like killing his personality, his being.

    I totally can relate right now, back in high school I loved the sound, but now at age 25, I can relate. Still a beautiful song.
