"Self Destruct" as written by and Aarron/mushok Lewis....
Watch me suffer
You'll feel better
Stick the needle in my vein
Lost my feelings with my dealing
Thoughts of only you remains


Rip and tear
In my despair
Agonizing over shit
Feel the needle burn and tingle
My bad habits deal with it

I will self destruct

My light has slowly faded
Broken and degraded
Suffocate in my sorrow
Maybe I'll die tomorrow
This riot that I've sited
Came to you uninvited
Truth hurts when it's in your face
Are you afraid of it?

    General CommentThese lyrics speak for themselves. I think it is very obvious what this song is talking about. Drug addiction plain and simple. There loosing control and are afraid of it but at the same time are excited by it.

    General CommentThis song is about being depressed, because something with someone happend note the line:"Thoughts of only you remains "
    So you do drugs, in this case something that contains a needle to use, such as herion to get away from it all...
    Plain and simple, yep.

    General CommentAaron Lewis was quoted saying that in this song, and 4 Walls, he used the needle lines as a metaphor.

    General CommentIt has absolutely no meaning, it doesn't have to do with Aaron's life. If you look in the Chapter V Limited Edition thingy, it says that this and "4 Walls" are the only 2 songs that don't have to do with his own life expierences.
