Dead On Arrival. also see doa
So, no one told you life was gonna be this way.
Your Job's a joke, you're broke, your love life's D.O.A.
It's like you're always stuck in second gear.
And it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year.
But -

I'll be there for you ... when the rain starts to fall.
I'll be there for you ... like I've been there before.
I'll be there for you ... cause you're there for me, too.

1) Dead on Arrival
2) Abbreviated title of the popular fighting game Dead or Alivecreated by Tonobu Itagaki and developed by Team Ninja
3) Song by the rock band Foo Fighters. On the album In Your Honor.
1) Unfortunately the Virtual Boy was so retarded that it was DOA when it was released.
2) Kid1: Wanna come over and play some DoA with me?
Kid2: As long as I can be Kasumi
3) You know I did it
It's over and I feel fine
Nothing you can say's gonna change my mind
Waited and I waited the longest night
Nothing like the taste of sweet decline
I went down, I fell, I fell so fast.
Dropping like the grains in an hourglass
Never say forever, cause nothing lasts
Dancing with the bones to my buried past
Nevermind, there's nothing I can do
Bet your life there's something killing you
