Have you ever wanted to die
When you were without your friends?
Haven’t you said goodbye
To the one on who your life depends?

Could it be that I don’t wanna save you anymore?
Could it be that we don’t have what it takes?
(Yeah)

Have you ever wished for fire
To burn away your mind restraints?
Haven’t you been for hire
Or suffered those cheap complaints?

Could it be that I don’t wanna save you anymore?
Could it be that we don’t have what it takes?
Take it away ’cause I don’t like this anymore
Take it away and throw it away!

Have you ever wanted to die
When you were without your friends?
Haven’t you said goodbye
To the one on who your life depends?

Could it be that I don’t wanna hurt you anymore?
Could it be that we don’t have what it takes?

Take it away ’cause I don’t like this anymore
Take it away and throw it away
Take it away ’cause I don’t like this anymore
Take it away and throw it away

A little history about the song…
It was rumored to be about Shaun’s experience while trying to become a jeweler in Europe. However, an article in Guitar World expands on the meaning of the song. “That was about a friend I had. She wanted to be a satanist and was constantly hacking herself up and ending up in hospitals. And at the same time, there was this guy I was in a band with and his girlfriend died in a car pile-up. Fifty-four cars were involved in the accident, but she was the only one to die. So that song is kind of a combination of me feeling his pain. On the whole, I’ve never had real friends. I’d have friends in one school and then I’d be moved to another school and I’d lose them.”
