Hate Me lyrics
[message on voicemail:] Hi Justin! This is your mother. It is 2:33 on Monday afternoon. I was just calling to see how you were doing. You sounded really uptight last night, it made me a little nervous, and a little, well it made me nervous, but it sounded like you were nervous too. I just want to make sure you are really okay and wanted to see if you were checking in on your medication too. You know I love ya and take care honey. I know you're under a lot of pressure. 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 loved 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 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 what’s 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 my 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 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 what’s 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 hand
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 can 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 what’s good for you
For you
For you
For you

This song has saved me from relapse countless times. I have been clean for six months now, and still this song can bring back all the hurt that I brought to my family. My sister never gave up on me. When I was at rock bottom living in my car asking for
gas money and stealing things from stores for dope. My sister looked for me and pulled out cables to my car so I couldn't go anywhere. I begged her and begged her, both of us crying in a parkiglot and she took me to score and told me it was my LAST time.
And she cried the whole way. She let me stay with her and I now have my car and am living on my own. I have never hurt anybody as much as I hurt her and she never gave up on me. As much as I wanted to push her away I never wanted to lose her. I owe her so
much and this song reminds me of how much pain goes along with getting high. Anyone who is going through addiction knows how easy it is to ignore the pain your inflicting until it's unbearable.

Al00126410,
This exact thing happened to me about a month before it happened to you. Reading that was like reading the words of my boyfriend.

I know the pain, it is heart-wrenching. But faith and determination pulled both of us through it - faith that
whatever happens, we are determined that we WILL be happy in the end, with or without each other.

There will always be love out there, and some for you too.

my daughter plays this song over and over. She lost her boyfriend to cancer a few months ago. She's only 16. Guess this beautiful song means lots of different things to lots of different people. Breaks my heart.

This song relates the last 2 yrs of my life. My wife D & I split up leaving her with 2 kids. I used to avoid coming home cuz I was high and when I finally did come in I often found her sobbing profusely on the floor in a ball. It killed me to see what I
had done to this angel who Loved me so much. I told myself she deserved better than me and gradually made her stop Loving me. I Love/Loved her so much that I just wanted to see her smile again and I hated myself so much I wanted to die. Thank you D for
helping me clean myself up. She has since moved on with her life and I have been fortunate to see her smile again though only til she sees me. I wanted to drive far away like the song says but I can't leave my kids fatherless.
My neighbor played this
song for me with the lyrics displayed on a screen and as I read it I cried like never before. This really hits home for me. WHERE WAS THIS SONG WHEN I NEEDED IT. I know she is better off without me and it kills me when I think of what I put her through.
God Bless You D. I pray the rest of your life is happy.
Hate me if it helps you move on. I will never stop Loving you but I know we can never be together again.

Today's my 3 month anniversary of getting clean n sober. The second verse is pretty touching... reminds me of all the things I did to people and yet they still think I deserve love... and finally today I realize maybe I do.

To me, this song portrays a relationship that started where they were in love. She loves him unconditionally, even through his addictions (heroin or prescription drugs). It is something he will have to battle for the rest of his life and always crave.
The addiction deepens his already-present depression and realizes the toll it is taking on his relationship and her personally. Because he loves her so much and is not strong enough to quit his addiction, he has to force her out of his life (maybe out of
drug-induced rage) so she can find happiness again; she does not deserve this way of life. Once she is gone, he realizes all the mistakes and bad choices he made due to his addiction. He realizes that she was the positive during all the negative in his
life. He finally finds it in himself to quit. It took losing a true-love relationship to do so.

That is how I relate it to my life.

Powerful song. I have a son and I will keep these lyrics with me through life to remind me of the effect our actions/words have. One important note, (I sent a correction to this site)the last line - it should read "SHE whispered" . Makes a big
difference in the story.

At the VERY beginning is a group of girls singing a snippet of "Calling You".. then it blends into the mom message.. then the lyrics begin. It's almost as if he's saying that the joy and bliss of "Calling You" is degenerating into the bleakness of "Hate
Me". The overall effect is beautiful and fucking heart-rending... I really don't understand how people can produce songs as beatiful and profound as this.

This song is mostly about the guilt he feels for hurting the love of his life.

This is the saddest song I've ever heard. I can completely relate to this song, as I have suffered severe depression. This man is completely in love with this girl. The problem is, is that she is also completely in love with him. She wants to help him
out of his depression, but for him it is impossible to get out. So when he struggles with his thoughts, she gets sucked into his dark world, and this causes him to hate himself even more for hurting her. So he knows the only thing to do is to push her
away, even though she doesn't want to leave him (and the turmoil of this causes him to constantly wonder if this was the right thing to do). In a nutshell he loves her so much that he knows that in order for her to have a better life, she must leave him.
Depressed people are often prescribed medication -from song: "I just want to make sure you are really okay and wanted to see if you were checking in on your medication too." - Depressed people also constantly flip back and forth about making the right
decision - from song "An ounce of peace is all I want for you. Will you never call again?
And will you never say that you loved me just to put it in my face?
And will you never try to reach me? It is I that wanted space". Many depressed people turn to
drinking to deal with the pressure that builds up in their head because they are always struggling to keep their thoughts under control. I believe at the end of the song he falls to suicide, because his hearing becomes distorted and fades away as some is
calling out to him.
