  • Need more friends with wings
    All the angels I know put concrete in my veins
    I'd always walk home alone
    So I became lifeless just like my telephone

    There's nothing to lose
    When no one knows your name
    There's nothing to gain
    But the days don't seem to change

    Never played truth or dare
    I'd have to check my mirror to see if I'm still here
    My parents had no clue
    That I ate all my lunches alone in the bathroom

    There's nothing to lose
    When no one knows your name
    There's nothing to gain
    But the days don't seem to change
    There's nothing to lose
    My notebook will explain
    There's nothing to gain
    And I can't fight the pain

    Teachers said it's just a phase
    When I grow up my children will probably do the same
    Kids just love to tease
    Who'd know it put me underground at seventeen

    There's nothing to lose
    When no one knows your name
    There's nothing to gain
    But the days don't seem to change
    There's nothing to lose
    My notebook will explain
    There's nothing to gain
    And I can't fight the pain

    There's nothing to lose
    When no one knows your name
    There's nothing to gain
    My notebook will explain
    There's nothing to lose
    When no one knows your name
    There's nothing to gain
    And I just died today Writer/s: Aaron Solowoniuk, Ben Kowalewicz, Ian D'sa, Jon Gallant

  • Mia from On, CanadaWhat did he do in the car?
  • Dennis from Toronto, OnIt is Jon's father in law again and Nothing too Loose is a true story which happened in a School two minutes from my house. The young boy killed himself in the Auto shop. Gregory is absolutely correct. The Video was filmed in the High School the four boy met at.The song was written in the 13th year they had been together. the original name of the band was PEZ. Billy Talent is a character from a book.
  • K from Dubai, CongoIt is about a kid named Gregory Doucette from Brampton Ontario Canada.
    He was taunted to death by his schoolmates from Notre Dame High School. Shame on them!
    He was a good kid.
