Time to give it up
No one needs this any day
Your life's a half-filled cup
You'd never drink from anyway
Well I say

And if you want me to, I'd love to ruin your life
There's nothing else to do
Start a new
Ruin your life

Time to light the fuse
And watch your whole world come undone
Chaos soon ensues
Blow it all to kingdom come
Nice one

Say goodbye
Day after day you never ever crack a smile
You know it's easier to die
It's up to you

    General CommentI think this song is actually pretty simple. its profound and can apply to people in many different ways but i think the basic message is pretty simple: if you are uhappy with your life, simply ruin it. Tahts a dangerous concept for many people but......as he says if you really want to be happy...."its up to you".

    General CommentWhenever I hear this song, I immediately think of someone on the verge of suicide. "There's nothing else to do, start a new, ruin your life" - Perhaps they feel this is the only path to lead to happiness. It's incredibly depressing. o_o;
