You've got me shaking from the way you're talking
My heart is breaking but there's no use crying
What a cyanide surprise you have left for my eyes
If I had common sense I'd cut myself or curl up and die

Sticks and stones could break my...

    So I've listened to this song a lot. When I first heard the whole thing I was like "Holy crap!" I thought it was supposed to be a satanist song or something. But now I'm pretty sure that he is having problems in a relationship. The saying "You got me shaking by the way you're talking" could be saying that the woman (or guy, he could be gay. Who the heck knows!?) is being sarcastic about serious things. sarcasm is a way of talking. Saying he should cut himself or die probably means he is hurt inside. It obviously was made to be somewhat creepy and emo, because it says things like "you could be the corpse and I could be the killer" instead of simply saying they could go together if she/he quits the sarcasm. "Don't mind us just spilling our guts" could be him showing his point on how they keep being modest and sarcastic about bad things. A filthy tongue is sometimes used to describe bad language. So gulping down the bad language (or the sarcasm) then throwing it up means that he is going to be sarcastic back because he learned from you filthy tongue he just gulped up. CREEPY!!! Why do I love this song?!?! Don't know but whatever.

    (I listened to this song years ago and now after leaving a toxic relationship it gained a new meaning for me)
    I think the singer might refer to exactly that: a toxic relationship. No matter if towards a friend or bf/gf. He knows about its toxicity but doesn't do much about it. He's talking about spilling guts like a causual thing - so for sarcastic. The audience of death might refer to society (or maybe even family and friends) which is just watching but not doing anything about it. Corpse-killer/devil-sinner/drug-dealer all has a very negative and probably "toxic" meaning or connotation. 'Watch me choke it down so I can throw it up'.. no idea if my thought is right but I just thought that sounds kinda helpless. It hurts (choking down) but you do it anyway because love and also try to show the other one it hurts (by throwing up). Usually in a toxic relationship the other one will simply not care so that would explain the sarcasm by expressing the singer's pain to me. (Sorry 'bout the long text and sorry if there're mistakes I'm not a native speaker)

    He (the singer) is simply talking about being afraid to die. But, the title "Sarcasm" is saying he is not actually scared of death. But the " don´t mind us, we are just spilling our guts...if this is love, i don´t wanna be loved,you pollute the room with a filthy tongue, watch me choke it down so i can throw it up, don´t mind us, we're just spilling our guts, if this is love, i don´t wanna be hanging by the neck" is indicating he thinks the world is rejecting him. However, a quick summary to the entire song, is mainly how he wants to kill himself. I personally love the song, however I am not suicidal. Thank you!

    Wow, I view it a lot differently than others. I see it as a political song. The beginning quote from someone like a pastor, preaching about how anyone who is gay should "Cut themselves or curl up and die." A gay couple (As viewed by the artists) finally make their stand. The first verse is them basically mocking the pastor, saying things like "Oh so anything you say is supposed to fuel my lungs" I.E. give a person reason to live, looking to 'god' while the second verse is the two talking to each other. "You be the drug and I'll be the dealer" in their own way saying they're perfect for each other. The chorus giving a mocking apology to the rest of the people in the church (Or wherever) saying that they're just "spilling their guts" or admitting their own peace. The bridge saying the people might as well lynch mob the two now because they're not changing who they are because some book says they're wrong for being who they are.
    I feel this is the best possible interpretation. The song title 'Sarcasm' referring to the sarcastic way the two talk to the pastor/whomever and other people listening in.

    Okay so all he means is that everyone rejects him and he says he's "scared of death" but he's not hense the title "Sarcasm". Or it's just about suicide. Luv this song tho. <3

    HE WANTS TO DIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. He's basically saying he wants to die but fears death in the song. But then again, it's called sarcasm

    He (the singer) is talking about how he's afraid of death but, hence the title, he's totally sarcastic and doesn't actually fear it. He views himself as a terrible person and views death as refuge, which is why they mention suicide so often. However, the lyrics "Don't mind us, we're just spilling our guts/ If this is love, I don't wanna be loved" suggests that another reason why he wants death is that he feels the world is rejecting him. Not exactly a happy song.

    It's talking about how all the bad things makes him want to die. And that he's not scared. So technically the whole song is
    Sarcastic. That's why I like it.(:
