My friend and I were driving in his car, listening to this song a few days after I found out what the actual lyrics to it were. I told him that I had always thought it was 'These vultures...'. He looked at me and said 'You mean he's not saying 'These vultures took my waterbombs?'

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

The Lyrics:
Once, I swore I would die for you,
but I never meant like this.
And so, the singer's obsession leads to suicide or death by broken heart. (See, Art? You're supposed to submit lyrics that actually have a depressing meaning, not make one up.)
