Last Resort
Papa Roach Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort
Suffocation
No breathing
Don't give a fuck if I cut my arm, bleeding

This is my last resort

Cut my life into pieces
I've reached my last resort
Suffocation, no breathing
Don't give a fuck if I cut my arm, bleeding
Do you even care if I die bleeding?
Would it be wrong? Would it be right?
If I took my life tonight
Chances are that I might
Mutilation outta sight
And I'm contemplating suicide

'Cause I'm losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine

I never realized I was spread too thin
'Til it was too late
And I was empty within
Hungry
Feeding on chaos
And living in sin
Downward spiral where do I begin?
It all started when I lost my mother
No love for myself
And no love for another
Searching to find a love up on a higher level
Finding nothing but questions and devils

'Cause I'm losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Nothing's alright
Nothing is fine
I'm running and I'm crying
I'm crying
I'm crying
I'm crying
I'm crying

I can't go on living this way

Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort
Suffocation
No breathing
Don't give a fuck if I cut my arm, bleeding
Would it be wrong?
Would it be right?
If I took my life tonight
Chances are that I might
Mutilation outta sight
And I'm contemplating suicide

'Cause I'm losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Nothing's alright
Nothing is fine
I'm running and I'm crying

I can't go on living this way
Can't go on
Living this way
Nothing's alright

Cut my life into pizza
This is my plastic fork
oven baking, heavy breathing
don't give a fuck if it's carbs that I'm eating  

Cut my life into pizza
I've got my plastic fork
oven baking, heavy breathing
don't give a fuck if it's carbs that I'm eating
Do you even care if I grate cheeses?

Would it be thin or
Would it be thick
If I chose my dough tonight
Chances are that I might
Chicken wings on the side
And I'm contemplating crispy fries

'Cause I'm eating my fries, munchin chicken thighs,
Wish somebody would hand me those chives
I'm eating my fries, munchin chicken thighs,
Wish somebody would hand me those chives

I never realized, It was spicy chicken,
Till it was too late and I was burnin within,
Hungry feeding on tacos and chocolate tins
Platter for four, where do I begin

It all started when I munched on that pig
Only love for myself and only love for it
Searching to find a love upon a higher level
Finding nothing but bacon and blenders

Cause I'm eating my fries, munchin chicken thighs,
Wish somebody would hand me those chives
I'm eating my fries, munchin chicken thighs,
Wish somebody would hand me those chives

Bacons alright, chicken is fine
I'm munching and I'm dining
I'm dining, I'm dining, I'm dining, I'm dining
I'll go on living this way

Cut my life into pizza
I've got my plastic fork
oven baking, heavy breathing
don't give a fuck if it's carbs that I'm eating

Would it be thin or
Would it be thick
If I chose my dough tonight
Chances are that I might
Chicken wings on the side
And I'm contemplating crispy fries

Cause I'm eating my fries, munchin chicken thighs,
Wish somebody would hand me those chives
I'm eating my fries, munchin chicken thighs,
Wish somebody would hand me those chives

Bacons alright, chicken is fine
I'm munching and I'm dining
I'm dining, I'm dining, I'm dining, I'm dining
I'll go on living this way bacons alright

Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort
Suffocation, no breathing
Don't give a fuck if I cut my arm bleeding
This is my last resort
Cut my life into pieces
I've reached my last resort
Suffocation, no breathing
Don't give a fuck if I cut my arm bleeding
Do you even care if I die bleeding?
Would it be wrong, would it be right
If I took my life tonight?
Chances are that I might
Mutilation out of sight
And I'm contemplating suicide
'Cause I'm losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
I never realized I was spread too thin
'Til it was too late, and I was empty within
Hungry, feeding on chaos and living in sin
Downward spiral, where do I begin?
It all started when I lost my mother
No love for myself and no love for another
Searching to find a love upon a higher level
Finding nothing but questions and devils
'Cause I'm losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Nothing's alright, nothing is fine
I'm running and I'm crying
I'm crying, I'm crying
I'm crying, I'm crying
I can't go on living this way
Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort
Suffocation, no breathing
Don't give a fuck if I cut my arm bleeding
Would it be wrong, would it be right
If I took my life tonight?
Chances are that I might

'Cause I'm losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Nothing's alright, nothing is fine
I'm running and I'm crying
I can't go on living this way
Can't go on
Living this way
Nothing's alright

@crazyredfoxes

first riff i learned on piano.

@JCDruid

Especially by Iron Maiden, considering the fact that they played it 12 years earlier...

It's in the middle of the song "Infinite Dreams", about 2 1/2 minutes in.
