This is an anti-suicide song. It is a response to all the kids who wrote letters to the band explaining how bad their lives are and how they feel like sometimes there's nothing to do but just give up and cave in to suicide. The band urged these kids to hold on when their world feels like it's not going to get any better, because there's so much to live for. Suicide may seem like the answer at the time, but it accomplishes nothing in the long run. (thanks, Amanda - Brewster, NY and Jesi - Hollywood, FL)
