Cradles Lyrics

I live inside my own world of make-believe
Kids screaming in their cradles, profanities
I see the world through eyes covered in ink and bleach
Cross out the ones who heard my cries and watched me weep
I love everything
Fire spreading all...

    Tingin ko simple lang pag durusa sa araw araw n buhay ung paki ramdam ng buhay na patay. Ung paki ramdam ng para kang nasa impyerno sa lupa. hindi impyerno ng sarili mo =depression=

    He said himself that the lyrics, "Cross out the ones who heard my cries and watched me weep.." where.. his friends couldn't even talk to him.. where he was alone in school.. they couldn't even recognize him and he'd think it was okay. He also said, "I love everything, Fire's spreading all around my room" where there would be fire... but you wouldn't even realize it.. And THEN he had said in the lyrics, "Tape my eyes open to force reality (oh no, no)" where people would try to get him to see reality when he didn't want to.. where he could anything he wanted to.

    I think that this song has something to do with his past... it's obvious something depressing had happened. I think something had to do with a fire.. but in the lyrics.. it seems like he was always.. alone? Maybe he lost his parents as a kid and was always depressed about it. He doesn't want to look at reality the same way he did when he had his parents. I know.. for a fact.. he is suffering according to the lyrics. He obviously likes the pain..

    I think this a song thats about a guy with some sort of mental illness (thats ok though!) who's in some sort of daydream he thinks is reality. And about not wanting people to see his weaknesses ('cross out the ones who heard my cries and watched me weep'). Its certainly a song open to debate. Don't we all live inside our own world of make-believe?

    this song was really hard for me to figure out what its about but after looking at the lyrics for some time i figured it out. i think its either about a guy who maybe lost his parents in maybe like a fire or something and he's depressed, or a dead person who's life was horrible.
