Bother Lyrics

Wish I was too dead to cry
My self-affliction fades
Stones to throw at my creator
Masochists to which I cater
You don't need to bother;
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on,
I won't let go 'til it...

    The lines that stood out to me were "stones to throw at my creator; masochists to which I cater". He's referencing god. He compare god to a masochist because he feels as though god is getting pleasure out of his suffering. Overall the song is about suicide and depression. He mentions death alot and wishes he was dead or number from all emotions

    It is about holding a grudge.

    This song is a suicide note to the singer's family. He wants to end it all because they are controlling of his life and he has no say (never had a voice to protest), overly critical (my flaws were open season), and when he could no longer endure, he gave up (For this, I gave up trying
    One good turn deserves my dying). Although numbed by depression, he hid it (A zombie hides my face
    Shell forgotten).

    Don't try to stop me (You don't need to bother)
    I don't need to go on living (I don't need to be)
    If I go on living, it will only keep getting worse (I'll keep slipping farther)
    Possible means of suicide is cutting of the wrist or throat with a knife or a gunshot (But once I hold on,
    I won't let go 'til it bleeds)

    It's about losing yourself and then finding yourself.

    I'll keep slipping farther (losing yourself)

    Once I hold on, I won't let go till I bleed (finding yourself)

    This song is to God. Dear God(Stones to throw at my creator), you don't need to bother (you do NOTHING for us and answer no prayers) and I don't need to be (if God created us, then he created us with death making us throw away). Once given life he will never let it go willingly. This is what I get out of it at least.

    I think this song is about frustration and being cornered and looking for opportunity to get out of this predicament and never look back again.

    I took from this song a man who was not happy in his current relationship because he "never had a voice to protest". He in turn desides to cheat because of his masochistic feelings coupled with his unhappy relationship.

    I believe this song is about low selfesteem, regardless of how much you try. believing your a failure even though you fight till the end, nothing works out

    He's depressed since his life isn't working out the way he wants it and he wants it all to end

    The song is on the Spider-Man Soundtrack. So, it's pretty much Peter Parker's interpretation of his life after turning.
