  • I remember suffering
    With every single word they said
    I could always feel them
    I could always feel them
    And even when I ran away
    The voices in my head they stayed
    I could always hear them
    I could always hear them

    Alone inside
    I wish that I could die

    All this hate will burn your life down
    All the pain, you cause your own suffering
    Tell me when you look in the mirror and talk to yourself
    Do you even see it all?
    All this hate, you chose to throw your life away
    Do you even see it all?

    All your little shameful looks
    Were buried in my heart like hooks
    I didn't wanna be here
    You told me I was evil
    And when I finally ran away
    Just trying to escape that pain
    I wanted to believe that I belonged somewhere on my own

    All this hate will burn your life down
    All the pain, you cause your own suffering
    Tell me when you look in the mirror and talk to yourself
    Do you even see it all?
    All this hate, you chose to throw your life away
    Do you even see it all?

    Alone inside
    I wish that I could die
    Alone inside
    I wish that I could die
    Alone inside
    Alone inside

    All this hate will burn your life down
    All the pain, you cause your own suffering
    Tell me when you look in the mirror and talk to yourself
    Do you even see it all?
    All this hate, you chose to throw your life away
    Do you even see it all? Writer/s: Benji Madden, Joel Madden, Zakk Cervini
