Lyrics:
I was pulling out my hair
The day I cut the deal
Chemically calm
Was I meant to feel happy?
But my life was just about to change

One life pretending to be
The cow that got the cream
(I don't feel like a success, so I trick myself and other people in my life to think that I am one by pretending to feel like I've made it to where I want to be at this stage in my life.)
Oh, everybody said
Marina is a dreamer
People like to tell you what you're gonna be
It's not my problem if you don't see what I see
(A lyric I thing that translates to all of us. People press their opinions onto you and tend to tell you how far you can or can't make it in this world.
And I do not give a damn if you don't believe
My problem is my problem
That I never am happy
Is my problem, is my problem
That I never will succeed
(It's my problem to deal with all of this, not anybody else's. While I appreciate help, I don't want anyone making it their mission to get me where I need to go or to make me feel a certain way, or to really interfere in my life to a degree that makes me feel like they're pushing themselves into matters that don't concern them.

Are you satisfied with an average life
Do I need to lie to make my way in life
(One of the things that I've come to realize over the years is that an average life is not what I want, but I'm absolutely positive that if I do everything to a T and honestly, I'd end up with one. It isn't what I hope to achieve. I don't want an average life, and I'm not satisfied with one.)

High achiever don't you see
Baby, nothing comes for free
They say I am a control freak
(I don't think I'm a control freak, but I do think that I want things to be my way and well within my control. It bothers me when I can't directly control the outcome of something.
Driven a greed to succeed
Nobody can stop me

Cause it's my problem
If I wanna pack up and run away
It's my business if I feel the need to
Smoke and drink and swear
It's my problem, it's my problem
If I feel the need to hide
It's my problem if I have no friends
And feel I want to die
(Again, it's my problem to deal with all of this, not anybody else's.)

Are you satisfied with an average life
Do I need to lie to make my way in life

Are you satisfied with an easy ride
Once you cross the line
Will you be satisfied?

Sad inside
In this life
I'm satisfied praying
Sad inside
In this life
I'm satisfied waiting

Are you satisfied with an average life
Do I need to lie to make my way in life

Are you satisfied with an easy ride
Once you cross the line
Will you be satisfied?

Are you satisfied?

I am heaven sent,
Don't you dare forget. (I put on an angelic facade when in reality, I'm not a saint.)
I am all you've ever wanted,
What all the other boys all promised.(I'm a passionate lover and I give everything to the person I love.
Sorry I told. I just needed you to know.
I think in decimals and dollars.(I think differently from others. I have a unique mind.)
I am the cause to all your problems,(When things are going great, I somehow screw up everything.)
Shelter from cold. We are never alone.
Coordinate brain and mouth.
Then ask me whats it like to have
Myself so figured out.
I wish I knew..(Everyone thinks I've got it good. That my life is perfect. Many of my friends come to me for advice and throw their problems onto me. I've had to help at least 3 or 4 friends that have been suicidal this past month. But honestly, I don't know what the heck to tell them or what to do. I'm just as clueless as they are.)

I hope this song starts a craze.
The kind of song that ignites the airwaves.
The kind of song that makes people glad
To be where they are,
With whomever they're there with.(I want significant people in my life to listen to this song and go, "Hey, this reminds me of Brenna," or, "This is so you."
This is war.
Every line is about,
Who I don't wanna write about anymore.
Hope you come down with something
They can't diagnose, don't have the cure for.
Holding on to your grudge.
Oh its so hard to have someone to love.
And keeping quiet is hard.
Cause you cant keep a secret
If it never was a secret to start.
At least pretend you didn't wanna get caught..(I'm hopelessly in love with somebody who refuses to talk to me. We've been friends since the 2nd grade. I wish badly upon him. He didn't want anybody to know about us. But I told people.)

We're concentrating on falling apart.
We were contenders, we're throwing the fight
But I just wanna believe, I just wanna believe,
I just wanna believe, in us.

Oh, we're so c-c-c-c-c-controversial.
We are entirely smooth.
We admit to the truth,
We are the best at what we do.
And these are the words you wish you wrote down.
This is the way you wish your voice sounds,
Handsome and smart.
Oh my tongue's the only muscle on my body
That works harder than my heart.(This just reminds me of myself. I'm not quite sure why.)
And its all from watching TV,
And from speeding up my breathing.(Frequent panic attacks due to extreme anxiety)
Wouldn't stop if I could.
Oh it hurts to be this good.
You're holding on to your grudge.
Oh it hurts to always have to be honest
With the one that you love.
Oh, so let it go..(My boyfriend doesn't know the person that I'm all torn up about not talking to me is his best friend..)

We're concentrating on falling apart.
We were contenders, we're throwing the fight
But I just wanna believe, I just wanna believe,
I just wanna believe.
We're concentrating on falling apart.
We were contenders, we're throwing the fight
But I just wanna believe, I just wanna believe,
I just wanna believe, in us.

This is the grace that only we can bestow.
This is the price you pay for loss of control.
This is the break in the bend,(Last resort.)
This is the closest of calls.(Suicide.)
This is the reason you're alone,
This is the rise and the fall.

We're concentrating on falling apart.
We were contenders, we're throwing the fight
But I just wanna believe, I just wanna believe,
I just wanna believe.
We're concentrating on falling apart.
We were contenders, we're throwing the fight
But I just wanna believe, I just wanna believe,
I just wanna believe, in us.

Embedder is failing...

I'll post a link instead.

"Slipknot - Snuff"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPD7wh-6vT8

Bury all your secrets in my skin
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again... (every time I feel that I'm in love, it usually ends in extreme anger and depression]

So if you love me, let me go. And run away before I know.
My heart is just too dark to care. I can't destroy what isn't there. (There is a looming darkness in my heart, but I have been debating about suicide)
Deliver me into my Fate - If I'm alone I cannot hate
I don't deserve to have you...
My smile was taken long ago / If I can change I hope I never know (I have been absolutely depressed for over three years)

I still press your letters to my lips
And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss
I couldn't face a life without your light
But all of that was ripped apart... when you refused to fight (Someone I had strong feelings for, and showed most of them back, decided to break a very important promise to me)

So save your breath, I will not hear. I think I made it very clear. (She was once supportive, but decided to cheat)
You couldn't hate enough to love. Is that supposed to be enough?
I only wish you weren't my friend. Then I could hurt you in the end.
I never claimed to be a Saint...
My own was banished long ago / It took the Death of Hope to let you go (Describes my despair)

So Break Yourself Against My Stones
And Spit Your Pity In My Soul
You Never Needed Any Help
You Sold Me Out To Save Yourself
And I Won't Listen To Your Shame
You Ran Away - You're All The Same
Angels Lie To Keep Control...
My Love Was Punished Long Ago. (I won't listen to the apparent reasons why the only woman I ever loved decided to betray me, and there is nobody I know that is even remotely worthy of replacing her.)
If You Still Care, Don't Ever Let Me Know
If you still care, don't ever let me know...

I just nod, I've never been so good at shaking hands (self explanitory)
I live on the frozen surface of a fireball
Where cities come together, to hate each other in the name of sport
America, nothing is ever just anything
I looked up to you but you thought I would look the other way

And you hear, what you want to hear
And they take what they want to take (A General Philosophy on what I feel about people)
Don't be sad, won't ever happen like this anymore (A word of inspiration I try to live by and try to remind others)
So when's it coming? This life's new great movement that I can join
It won't end here, your faith has got to be greater than your fear (I can't stress that enough)

Forgive them even if they are not sorry
All the vultures, bootleggers at the door waiting
You are looking for your own voice, but in others
While it hears you, trapped in another dimension (Again, it comes down to how I want to live my life. I'm always learning from my past, and it really feels like the me from 10 years ago is completely different person. )


Drop your guard, you don't have to be smart all of the time (A personal reminder)
I got a mind full of blanks
I need to go somewhere new fast (This line repesents my love for travel, and how it fuels my creativity. If I stay somewhere for too long, I end up falling into a rut.
And don't be shy, oh no, at least deliberately (Another self-reminder, being very anti-social and not honestly want to be.)
No one really cares or wonders why anymore (I feel this line so hard sometimes, but often I end up falling into that same crowd, choosing ignorance because it's easier. It's a tough thing to balance.)
Oh I got music, coming outta my hands and feet and kisses (I love music and musical expression)
That is how it once was done
All the dreamers on the run

Forgive them even if they are not sorry
All the vultures, bootleggers at the door waiting
Were so quick to point out our own flaws in others
Complicated mammals on the wings of robots

If you believe in this world no one has died in vain
But don't you dare get to the top and not know what to do (Again a personal reminder, I'd rather be humble then pretend to have the answers)


I also wanted to note that the quotes featured in the music video also have a huge inpact on me.

Anger is Weakness, Patience is Strength

Sin is honoring desire over what is right.

Every Positive Action has a Reward

The video itself has a message I try to live up to as well. I want to try to be above the pain and bad decisions. Even going so far as to help my wrongdoers. It's a hard message to swallow most days.

When I wake up everyday my dreams relive my mind (Most of the time I don't forget the dreams I have, so they are stuck in there for quite a long time.)
Always wanted the best of you and I'm running out of time
The wars, moving closer, son of king, mayhem I reign
Step back, and move forward, won't you think that I'm insane?

Hey!
I can live my life anyway I choose yeah
Come on!
I can live my life, and theres no way I can lose yeah (This is sort of the positive thinking that I do have, whether it be sports, games, etc. In other words, born to win, losing is not an option.)

When I look into those eyes, I see how you betray
Try to cast me from above but I'll do it my own way
I know who you are, where you have been and what you've done
Listen here what I say, I won't stop until I've won

Hey!
I can live my life anyway I choose yeah
Come on!
I can live my life and theres no way I can lose yeah!
I can be what I wanna be, how do you know what is right for me?
Don't you ever tell me what you want me to be, that's then the life I lived
I can do what I wanna do, don't f-----g choose, that's just for you
Don't you ever tell me what you want me to do, I'm gaining ground on you (Basically, I'm not one that follows the bandwagon as I'd rather do my own thing. Usually, I gain more progress in doing so.)

(Awesome solo)

Hey!
I can live my live anyway I chose yeah
Come on!
I can live my life and theres no way I can lose yeah!
I can be what I wanna be, how do you know what is right for me?
Don't you ever tell me what you want me to be, that's then the life I lived
I can do what I wanna do, don't f-----g choose, that's just for you!
Don't you ever tell me what you want me to do, I'm gaining ground on you!

(Another awesome solo)

Everybody looks at me as if I don't belong
I do what I wanna do, so how can that be wrong?
Who are you to tell me what I can and cannot be?
I am who I am, you can't take that away from me (People think sometimes that I can be very childish, and look at me as if I shouldn't be there. Also, I hate to be told how I should and shouldn't act.)

Hey!
I can live my life anyway I choose yeah!
Come on!
I can live my life and theres no way I can lose yeah!
I can be what I wanna be, how do you know what is right for me?
Don't you ever tell me what you want me to be, that's then the life I lived
I can do what I wanna do, don't f-----g choose, that's just for you
Don't you ever tell me what you want me to do, I'm gaining ground on you!
