Scars
Papa Roach Lyrics


I tear my heart open
I sew myself shut
My weakness is
That I care too much
And my scars remind me
That the past is real
I tear my heart open
Just to feel

Drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just want to be alone
I'm pissed 'cause you came around
Why don't you just go home
'Cause you channel all your pain
And I can't help you fix yourself
You're making me insane
All I can say is

I tear my heart open
I sew myself shut
And my weakness is
That I care too much
And our scars remind us
That the past is real
I tear my heart open
Just to feel

I tried to help you once
Against my own advice
I saw you going down
But you never realized
That you're drowning in the water
So I offered you my hand
Compassion's in my nature
Tonight is our last stand

I tear my heart open
I sew myself shut
And my weakness is
That I care too much
And our scars remind us
That the past is real
I tear my heart open
Just to feel

I'm drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just want to be alone
You shouldn't ever come around
Why don't you just go home?
'Cause you're drowning in the water
And I tried to grab your hand
I left my heart open
But you didn't understand
But you didn't understand
You fix yourself

I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life
I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life

I tear my heart open
I sew myself shut
And my weakness is
That I care too much
And our scars remind us
That the past is real
I tear my heart open
Just to feel

I tear my heart open
I sew myself shut
And my weakness is
That I care too much
And our scars remind us
That the past is real
I tear my heart open
Just to feel

"Scars"

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And my scars remind me that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

Drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
I'm pissed cause you came around
Why don't you just go home
Cause you channel all your pain
And I can't help you fix yourself
You're making me insane
All I can say is

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I tried to help you once
Against my own advice
I saw you going down
But you never realized
That you're drowning in the water
So I offered you my hand
Compassion's in my nature
Tonight is our last stand

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I'm drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
You should've never come around
Why don't you just go home?
Cause you're drowning in the water
And I tried to grab your hand
And I left my heart open
But you didn't understand
But you didn't understand
Go fix yourself

I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life
I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel



T-Def Hip Hop

I just heard this song for the first time in years and this is probably the biggest nostalgia bomb I've ever felt in my entire life. Just listening to this brings back so many memories it's as if im dying and I'm having flashbacks. It's crazy. It makes me feel really sad because I see how far I've come and how much harder things have become and how much less carefree life is now.

Everything used to be such a little problem but now it just seems like everything is escalated and stressful 24/7. This song used to be probably the most played on my iPod from elementary school all the way through Middle School (except for Eminem) back when I lived in Las Vegas. I never really could relate when parents said they wish they could go back in time to be young again but I actually kind of understand now.

I wish I could have done even more with my than I did when I lived up there but so far my experience in high school has been liars backstabbers and assholes throughout the entire thing. I feel like I just don't belong here. I see everybody in groups and clicks while I'm just a lone person here by myself. Nothing that I'm interested in interests anyone else. I'm just alone.

I'm even more afraid i won't be able to get a job after high school because i have such bad grades and I'm so slow at learning.

I'm scared.

I miss my friends.
I miss my old life.




The scars remind us that the past is real.

Across the entire seven years I was with my ex fiance, she bore us three beautiful children.
One of them unfortunately passed away a day before she was supposed to join us in the world. That tragic and traumatizing event in our lives only served to exacerbate her alcoholism. So despite the bonds we shared and the good and bad we both endured together which i hoped might strengthen our bond, the subsequent toxicity that was a very miniscule at the beginning, grew into serious physical and emotional abuse that i endured for several years before it ultimately became the reason we separated.
I remember this song from my youth only as; "the only other song by papa roach i know besides last resort" and that was it. just another song.
But after listening to this song since our separation this song and my interpretation/perspective of it has drastically changed.
It is litterally SO relateable that I am easily reduced to tears EVERY time I hear it..
Its been over 2 years since Ive seen her or our other two children because she lied on me, got me arrested here for domestic and fled back to our home state (after I moved our family here for a fresh start primarily to help cure her of the demons i felt that she had that were the cause of her alcoholism. ) and Ive been stuck here suffering the legal consequences ever since. Needless to say the wounds I suffered from her abuse havent even healed into SCARS yet.

And just as I finally start to REALLY cope and heal from all the damage that has been done I found a new girl who became significant enough to me that we started dating 6 months ago and OMG how thankful I was that she wasnt alcoholic... However inbetween her and my ex I unfortunatley developed an addiction to drugs as a way to cope with my pain...just like my ex. Even though she knew about it from the beginning It apparently became the wedge that drove in between us and made her break up with me today.

I listened to this song (because its forever on my "sad boy/breakup playlist") about 4 or 5 times before I realized that the subject matter of this song and how I relate to it has come FULL FUCKING CIRCLE in my life. And Im not quite sure how to feel about that other than to instinctively play the only other papa roach song I know because I feel terrible. Im just too afraid to acknowlege or process it because I am once again homeless, cold, and alone. Like I have been before, but this time I know its because its my fault.
