stand up and say your name. it's now your turn to voice your complaints of me since i seem to be such a terrible person and i seem to have done you all wrong. but, oh yeah, before you begin, fuck you! you can't suck me into your drama. i have real problems and, believe me, you never took the time to know them. so don't be expecting me to say "you're welcome." i wouldn't thank you if you saved my life. these are twelve of the twelve steps in a twelve step program. and everyone seems to think that they know me so well but they don't know shit. so listen up! because i don't need you to tell me my problems. i drink because i know them all to well.

    General CommentOrange Island is such a great band. There lyrics are amazing and how they sing them as well. This song is about a girl who would never give him a chance to understand him so she shunned him. And you think drinking is his problem but he only drinks because she never took the time...

    General Commenti disagree with koroco. i think that this songs about getting fucked by cops or something and having to go to AA meetings and how everyone treats him like shit cuz he got wasted and got caught doing something stupid. people are so fucking gay, they can't realize that all he wants to do is chill out and they accuse him of having tons of problems, when he drinks for the fuck of it. but who knows maybe he really does have problems?
