I feel like it's about depression. I have been there. You sit and watch and every time someone sees you they see you as crazy and/or ugly... You feel like there is nothing to gain or lose... And every day you snap a bit and you feel like yelling the chorus to this song: 'You don't care about how I feel, i don't feel it anymore!'... Because sometimes you feel like no one else cares, so fuck them.. Also "I don't see/sleep (anymore), I don't hear/eat (anymore), I don't speak/live (anymore), I don't feel"... That is what happens. That is what depression feels like.... But what the fuck does ATWA even stand for? "All the World Apathetic" perhaps?
