Homework Help: English

Posted by Pat on Saturday, February 10, 2007 at 10:18pm.

I want to know all symbols in this lyric and the meaning of "on the eve of my defeat" It's for my presentation

Is anybody listening?
Can they hear me when I call?
I'm shooting signals in the air
'Cause I need somebody's help
I can't make it on my own
So I'm giving up myself
Is anybody listening
Listening

I'll be standing here and I'm miles away
Making signals hoping they'd save me
I lock myself inside these walls
'Cause out there I'm always wrong
I don't think I'm gonna make it
So while I'm sitting here
On the eve of my death bed
I'll write this letter and hope it saves me

I don't see the phrase "on the eve of my defeat" in this poem. Sorry.

First off, it isn't a poem - it's a (rather bad, ungrammatical and pretentious) lyric by some group called Good Charlotte. Try reading something that's actually literature.

It looks as if "Good Charlotte" is getting a bit too close to another group's lyrics:

Some of the symbols are "shooting signals in the air", "Walls", "miles away", "eve of my deathbed". Additionally, "eve of my defeat" would have the same significance. This person is comtemplating his/her possible suicide....and is crying out for help.
