And its mine The most loneliest day of my life The superlative “most” goes to show that he has never felt this way before. It is horrific and he cant deal with it. These are brand new feelings and they are unwanted. They perhaps come from a break up, a loss of a family member, something precious is missing, or someone is away and they are needed…
Its something disgusting, that is unbearable and society itself shouldn’t have to deal with. The person in the video doesn’t believe this feeling should be allowed Such a lonely day to be used ever. Should be banned Its a day that I cant standThis is an unbearable feeling, he is angry at the way he is lonely. Perhaps, conflict, stress, depression could be shown.
Repetition of this lyric entrenches the feeling of hatred toward thisemotion and the pain it is causing. The singer sounds almost close to break down, perhaps weary of the constant attrition of the feeling bearing down upon him.

The most loneliest day of my life!!!
The repetition of this lyric emphasises how lonely he is, it is re-enforcing the loneliness and showing that it is impossible to get rid of, causing frustration.
