    To Emo, or not to Emo

    So I got in to a petty argument with my friend over the song "Head for the Hills" by Saves the Day.

    He interprets the song as emo whereas I interpret it as just a regular punk rock song.

    My argument is that he talks about how his life sucks, but then he talks about getting revenge. Emo kids wouldn't really talk about revenge they'd just be like "OH GOD YOU SCREWED ME OVER /WRISTS"

    (You may recognize this song from the Madden '07 soundtrack; it's a pretty good song)

    Well, do you agree with me or do you not!? and why!?

    Saves the Day - Head for the Hills

    Burning a door in the back of my mind
    Lying alone in the morning
    I feel like swallowing my eyes
    I walk around the house until
    My feet begin to bleed
    Still I can't forget somehow

    I'm dying in the darkness of my mind
    I dream I'm setting fire to everything in sight
    If I die tonight and go to Hell oh well
    On that hill I see you

    Cut off my legs and you tell me to walk
    Slit my own throat when you say I don't gotta be swallowing your lies
    And I recall you asked about the one you used to know
    I know him now

    Drowning in the darkness of my mind
    I dream I'm setting fire to everything in sight
    If I die tonight and go to Hell oh well
    On that hill I see you

    My heart is burning black
    My bones are cold and cracked
    The venom flushed out my veins
    And if you ever knew what I'm dreaming of
    You would head for the hills
    You'd better head for the hills
    You'd better head for the hills

    Drowning in the darkness of my mind
    I dream I'm setting fire to everything in sight
    And if I die tonight and go to Hell oh well
    On that hill I see you

    EDIT: DL the song and listen to it. It will aid in your decision.

    Mostly all lyrics are like that and punk rock is the worst genre ever.

    I love Saves the day, one of my favorite bands of all time have been seeing them live since they put out "Through being cool"

    They're emo, no doubt, but not all "emo" is /cutwrists, so whatever, continue the argument.

    I read up to 'Saves the Day' and decided emo. Seems by the rest of the posts that I am correct.
