BLUE OCTOBER


Hate Me Lyrics

[Hey Justin, this is your mother. I was just calling to see how you were doing; you sounded really up tight last night, made me a little nervous. I just wanna make sure you are really okay, and......[record scratch] see if you were checking in on your medications. You know I love ya! See ya. Bye bye.]

I have to block out thoughts of you, so I don't lose my head
They crawl in like a cockroach leaving babies in my bed
Dropping little reels of tape, to remind me that I'm alone
Playing movies in my head that make a porno feel like home
There's a burning in my pride, a nervous bleeding in my brain
An ounce of peace is all I want for you, Will you never call again?
And will you never say that you love me just to put it in my face?
And will you never try to reach me, it is I that wanted space
Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me so you can finally see whats good for you
I'm sober now for 3 whole months, it's one accomplishment that you helped me with
The one thing that always tore us apart is the one thing I won't touch again
In a sick way I want to thank you for holding my head up late at night
While I was busy waging wars on myself, you were trying to stop the fight
You never doubted my warped opinions on things like suicidal hate
You made me compliment myself when it was way too hard to take
So I'll drive so fucking far away that I'll never cross your mind

And do whatever it takes in your heart to leave me behind

Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you
Hate me in ways, yeah ways hard to swallow
Hate me so you can finally see whats good for you
And with a sad heart I say bye to you and wave
Kicking shadows on the street for every mistake that I had made
And like a baby boy I never was a man
Until I saw your blue eyes cry and I held your face in my hands
And then I fell down yelling "make it go away" just make a smile
Come back and shine just like it used to be
And then she whispered "How could you do this to me?"
Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you
Hate me in ways, yeah ways hard to swallow
Hate me so you can finally see whats good for you.

This song is about a guy that is dealing with depression and not feeling worthy of love. He is using his feelings to push away someone who really loves him, by telling her to hate him, and telling her this is what he wants. This song makes me feel so sad for the millions that deal with depression.

Very profound, very touching, specialy if you know someone who hurts deeply, someone who hurts you, and who realises it, and regrets it, but starts all over again. Addiction hurts every one who loves you. So sad.

I don't think this song is about depression, but regret. I saw the video on Youtube and it really brought the message home. The song actually is supposed to take place after his mom died...The taped part at the very beginning is him listening to an old recording of his mom on the answering machine. The guy "saying" this stuff to his mom used to be really selfish and quite the rebel. Despite all of his efforts, his mom still supported him and loved him, regardless of his choices, attitude, and actions. This always threw him off. Many of the lyrics are him telling her to just forget about him, he's not worth it. His regrets and realizations of her support are expressed as the song continues through to the end. The chorus is bascially him telling his mom that he's not worthy of her love (very untrue, of course), and that it would be better for her if she hated and forgot him. It would be less painful for both of them: She wouldn't be hurt by his disappointing behavior, and he wouldn't have to feel guilty about being a jag-dork. This is one of my favorite songs...

This song is about addiction and hurting the ones that love you, getting sober and realizing the damage you've caused. Its not about an overbearing or abusive mom jeez

This song makes me think about the girl I like... We know each other through a website, and even though I know it probably isn't going to work out... But this song makes me think of her, because unless we meet in real life, I'll never be able to hold her hand or hug her or hold her when she's sad.

I was married to an alcoholic who I loved deeply and who hurt me in ways that are unimaginable. He ended up hating me for trying to help him. And then he disappeared without warning. Gone. Just gone.

I fell for a girl who is straight. She was going through crap and I helped her. Then she found out I liked her, and called me a dike. She left me feeling broken but I let her go cause it helped her.:(

It reminds me of my ex-boyfriend cuz he really hurt me by leaving me after he promised not to and so I just see this song as him singing it to me and me hating him
