Breakdown!

Let the fun and games begin
She is vain and broken in
Skin is cold and white
Such a lovely lonely night

Heaven is on the way
You can feel the hate
but I guess you never will
I'm on a roll again
and I want an end
'cause I...

    I think this song is about him hearing his girlfriend cheating on him. "What's that sound?" he says this with a scared sound.. almost like panic is in his voice. "You're so loud" he hears her making love. "I'm headed for a breakdown." this could mean he's going to snap. "Drink up all my alcohol. This is not a free for all. I'll be there for you. Until my heart is black and blue." She's causing him so much pain. He's drinking and he's a mess. In spite of what she's done, he tells her he'll be there for her. "Let the fun and games begin. She is spayed and broken in." He's losing it and about to go psycho. "Skin is cold and white. Such a lovely lonely night." I think he's been watching her. "Heaven is on the way. You can feel the hate. I'm on a roll again. And I want an end." I think he wants to physically hurt her for what she's done. He wants it to end. He might be fantasizing about killing her. In this song, he's completely lot it, but he loves her... at the same time he hates what she's done.

    Seems to me that Ben knew that someone that he wanted to enter a relationship with was with another guy who was hurting her?

    "Let the fun and games begin
    She is vain and broken in
    Skin is cold and white
    Such a lovely lonely night"

    The other part:
    "Heaven is on the way
    You can feel the hate
    but I guess you never will
    I'm on a roll again
    and I want an end
    'cause I feel it creeping in"


    She is vain and brken in? Skin is cold and white? Heaven is on the way? you can feel the hate but I guess you never will? I want an end? It sounds like he freakin MURDERED The girl!!!

    It sounds like someone when insane for a day or two and possibly beat some chick up.
    At least, that is one explaination of the first verse:
    "Let the fun and games begin
    She is vain and broken in
    Skin is cold and white
    Such a lovely lonely night"

    The other part:
    "Heaven is on the way
    You can feel the hate
    but I guess you never will
    I'm on a roll again
    and I want an end
    'cause I feel it creeping in

    What I found in this town
    I'm heading for a breakdown
    What's that sound, it's so loud
    I'm heading for a breakdown

    NO!

    Drank up all my alcohol
    This is not a free for all
    I'll be there for you
    'till my heart is black and blue"
    pretty much refers to the fact of insanity and losing control.

    It's about just losing yourself, and "Breaking down."

    Drank up all my alcohol
    This is not a free for all
    I'll be there for you
    'till my heart is black and blue

    This is clearly a reference to Ben's struggle with coping with his illnes and using it too cope with a loss of someone.

    i can relate to this song, he is in love with a girl from his town and he hears all the things that she is doing cause they live in the same town and all know the same people so hes headed for a break down.
