So I think you are a fool
Hanging on my every word
It's getting ugly
So I'm ugly

Tear me from your heart
Tearing me apart

So I thought you'd disappear
Being alone is what you fear
Are you lonely?
Yes, lonely

Tear me from your heart
Tearing me apart

Rolling and throwing, consoling
Everything that goes this far
Joking and hoping, revolting
All that shit that's who you are
Holding and scolding, revolving
Peel it back, reveal the scar
Loathing, exploding, controlling
This is what you really are

The time is coming
God is saying
You're feeling happy
You've won the game
The time is coming
A bed of flames
Your life is over and you're to blame
The time is coming
You've gone insane
You're feeling happy
You've won the game
The time is coming
A bed of flames
Your life is over and you're to blame

Rolling and throwing, consoling
Everything that goes this far
Joking and hoping, revolting
All that shit that's who you are
Holding and scolding, revolving
Peel it back, reveal the scar
Loathing, exploding, controlling
This is what you really are

Rolling and throwing, consoling
Everything that goes this far
Joking and hoping, revolting
All that shit that's who you are
Holding and scolding, revolving
Peel it back, reveal the scar
Loathing, exploding, controlling
This is what you really are

    My InterpretationI think this song is about people who pretend to be all nice and cute and innocent but in reality are just manipulating others around them, hating and envying them (the corus) because they are lonely... however the guilt of what they are doing makes them hate themselves.

    So I think you are a fool
    Hanging on my every word
    It's getting ugly
    So I'm ugly

    So I thought you'd disappear
    Being alone is what you fear
    Are you lonely?
    Yes, lonely

    Both sides of the conversation are the same guy talking down to himself dispreciatly.

    Tear me from your heart
    Tearing me apart

    I think that he is secretly praying that everyone will see through his farce, tearing their bonds from him and hurting him in the process.

    The time is coming
    God is saying
    You're feeling happy
    You've won the game
    The time is coming
    A bed of flames
    Your life is over and you're to blame
    The time is coming
    You've gone insane
    You're feeling happy
    You've won the game
    The time is coming
    A bed of flames
    Your life is over and you're to blame

    I think that this is when people find out about the darkness inside of him. He has been carrying on the lie until he has everyone fooled and then a mistake (the bed of flames) and he has been revealed as a "bad person" alianizing him from his old peers maybe forever (Your life is over and you're to blame )

    This is just my interpretation so forgive my rant and my bad spelling... thank you

    General CommentMy interpretation of this song is about someone who may have had a crush on one of his/her friend's but the relationship went sour because of the crush or something else. It doesn't necessarily have to be a crush but just someone he/she cares about. So now things are ugly and they both hate each other, although one of them still has a crush on the other ("Tear me from your heart, tearing me apart"). That's just my perspective. Haha, I'm going through something similiar right now and that verse, "Loathing, exploding, controlling, etc..." describes my crush perfectly.
