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?

A song that is probably saying goodbye to someone, as it bares another duty: To come clean with the burden of not have had the chance to say goodbye to someone who's gone, or even worse, if you shared bad blood with them and never got into the troube of clearing the air between you....
