the truth of this song | Reviewer: billy | 11/21/08
just so u guys no, this song is about how he killed his brother while high on heroin and how his mom forgave him, and now he wishes she hated him instead because he can't understand how she could forgive him, so he constantly thinks about it from the thought of her, and it tears him up on the inside. thats why he wants space... with that in mind, look over the lyrics again and see how they make sence. and the fact that u guys can relate to the song in other ways is a major good thing so please, dont think im trying to offend any1 with this. :)

hate me! | Reviewer: prettynpink | 10/29/08
i have never had a problem with drugs, so this song doesn't "hit home" for me that way, but it does in a different way. I found out my best best friend liked me and asked me out, and i rejected him. I was worried about it all weekend. i thought for sure he would hate me and treat me differently on monday. i kept telling myself he would hate me, and that he deserved to, because i hurt him. but when i saw him, he was super nice and totaly normal! i love him so much!
hate me | Reviewer: ;P | 10/27/08
wow i was reading everyones ideas about this song and i think its amazing how many people who have had their lives changed by this song. i have never had a problem with drugs or anything so i can't say that this song hits home for me there, but it does differently. i had a best friend once who really liked me as more then a friend. i sort of turned him down and i thought all that night that i would wake up tomorrow and he would hate me and never forgive me for hurting his heart. i almost wanted him too, because i felt so bad, but the next day he was so nice, just like normal, and we were still best friends. i kept thinking, "it's ok if he hates me now. he deserves to be angry." but he wasnt and thats why i love him so much.
my painfull truth | Reviewer: chasity | 10/22/08
when this song first came out, i was like thats me and my mom. i put my mom and dad thru fucken hell 4 15 years over my addiction. they tried to get me help keep me from my kids, but at the same time i just didnt care as long as they hated me and left me alone. when i thought i was better i relapsed and it all most cost me my life, nbut when my mom held me and told me it was goin to b alrite. iknew her love never died, neither did my kids or father. for once in my life i felt how much i'd been hurtn them and i swear id never do it again. " i've been sober know 4 3 whole months thats one accoplishment that u help me with. the one thing that tore us apart is the one thing i wont touch again." thats me and my family. thank u for writen a song that had so much depth to it that only few would or could know how to understand unless they had lived it. thanks again for maken me still rembeber the hurt so i'll try not to put my family thru that again, cause im an addict.
I've never seen it as drugs | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/14/08
I've never thought of this song as a drug song... I've always thought of it as depression. He can't lover her the way she deserves to be, so he tries to leave her, however she loves him regardless.
With the depression issue, it's a lot like me. Severe depression leads to the lyrics described in the song.

HITTING HOME | Reviewer: DMA | 9/21/08
this song hit home the 1st time i heard it. My husband and i have been threw so much, drugs were and did distroyed our marriage for 4 years. everytime i hear it, i thank God for helping my family to get threw that time in our lives. My husband use to tell me i could do better, i told him, i can't choose who i fall in love with. I'm here. Now, he's a Drug Counselor, and sober.
Sounds Familiar | Reviewer: Alice | 9/7/08
so when i first heard this song it was like deja vu or something! i say that because i had a friend, he was also a boyfriend at one point, that got heavily mixed up with drugs. like our freshman year of high school he started experimenting with things and he was very good at hiding it especially when we were all to naive to see it. when we started dating i started to notice how much his behavior was changing. in like our junior year i couldn't deal with his erratic behavior and how abusive emotionally he had become. at that point i realized something was very wrong. he didn't really know that i was pretty sure as to what was going on. it just was so unfair. he wasn't only hurting himself anymore, he was hurting everyone around him. but you know in high school you think you're inlove and everything. but it wasn't just that, he had always been my BEST friend first and foremost. so when he caught on that i knew what was going on, he sat down with me to talk about it. that's why this song is so crazy! it was like our exact conversation. he said "why can't you just hate me? it would be so much easier on me if you hated me too much to stay or to care. so please just forget about me! please just start hating me, i mean look at what i've done to you?"
it was like the hardest thing to hear and have to accept from someone i loved that much. i mean i wanted to hate him. i wanted to be able to walk away and never look back because of everything he’d done or did not do. but it just wasn't possible. i didn't just love him as my boyfriend, he was my friend someone i'd loved my whole life. so that night i came to a decision that i just could not handle being his girlfriend anymore, he was right, too much had happened. but i loved him too much to just walk away from him. he was my BEST friend like i said before. so from that point on it became about helping him get better. which he eventually did. so this song pretty much was like hearing ty talk to me in music. which was pretty crazy!
blue october you are phenomenal! i hope you know that!
cause this song isn't just about drugs and addiction it's also about the love that it takes to get over them. to want to get better. if justin didn't have the love of his mother or the love he had for her he wouldn't have tried to be sober at all let alone three months. because love isn't just a word used for stupid relationships but its what you do for someone. cause Justin loved his mother enough to try to get sober at all and she loved him too much to let him fall apart, to lose him forever.
Hate me | Reviewer: mandy | 8/25/08
Even if this is a song about drugs,
to me it's about love
I loved this boy,
I was a virgin,
he used me for sex
I confused sex with love,
then somewhere along the way he fell in love with me
he cheated, a lot
hurt me a lot
raped me quite a few times too
and it hurt, everything hurt,
he ruined my life,
after a year and a half of his betrayal I ended it.
It took me until he got some other girl pregnant to end it though.
Even now, I love him
I always will
he called the other day to apologize,
he's way to late though
I told him I still loved him.
everything about this song reminds me of him
of our relationship
and how after everything he's done
and everything that's happened,
I still love him.
and miss him.
A Song a Truth | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/24/08
This song hits home for me. My sister was actually the one whom tried to help me cope with my drug addiction. I had nothing but love for her; but, the love for the drugs was more. It took years for me to recover, and yet I still crave. I always will. "I'm sober now for three whole months, it's on accomplshment that you helped me with..." This peice of the song was more than a home hitter. My sister practically made me go into a recovery program, and thus I wasn't cured, but on the road to a full turn around.
It feels like my life story | Reviewer: Allana Mayer | 8/8/08
this song... it reminds me so much of how i feel. life is a struggle and i keep hurting the ones i love. i push them away for there own good. i dont want to hurt them more. pushing them away is all i can do. suicide has crossed my mind so many times but someone has always been there to snap me out of it. they refuse to listen to my pleas to leave. this song has so much depth and is so... so intouch with the lives of thousands. so many of us feel this way and this one song, one song that expresses this feeling, this feeling of loneliness and hate for ourselves. this song can be constrewed as drug-related, love, suicide and depression. it reaches all of us. i will always have a place in my broken heart for this song.
It's not about losing love, it's about drug addiction. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/19/08
This is a post from a few years ago. This is what Justin was singing about, putting his mother thru the pain of drug abuse.
"I couldn't stop crying when I first heard Hate Me, and I'm crying now as I write this review. I lost my son to an accidental drug overdose 11 months ago. He was 34. I tried for 16 years to save him from himself, but I couldn't. I miss him so much! How nice to hear a song with such deep and meaningful lyrics."
ex | Reviewer: musicfreak4ever | 3/9/08
I just broke up with my boyfriend of 1 year. He brought me more trouble than kisses. I wish I could hate him for everything he did, but I can't. He doesn't deserve my love anymore, but hating him won't solve anything. The more I think about it, the more I wish I could hate him! Even though I no I can't.
wake up | Reviewer: michael | 2/19/08
wake up you self centered crybabies this is not about two people breaking up its a song justin furstenfeld wrote to his mother about her unconditional love for him in spite of his chronic drug abuse
