"Somebody Loved Me" as written by Aaron Barrett, Matt Wong, Scott Allen Klopfenstein, Dan Regan and Carlos F. Garza....
All of my friends- they're not my friends
A knife in the back, felt it again. What did I do? Was it so wrong?
I used to fit in, now I don't belong

I think somebody loved me once, I think somebody loved me once
I think somebody loved me once but I cannot remember why

My confidence is stuck in my throat when you lay blame I'm your scapegoat
Ears burnin' red, I heard what you said- you smile at my face but you wish I was dead

I think somebody loved me once, I think somebody loved me once
I think somebody loved me once but I cannot remember why

    General Commenti think the song is about a relationship, but it could also be a symbol for ska music. a lot of fans moved on from reel big fish after "sell out" hit. people that were even die hard fans gave up on the music.

    General CommentI think it's actually a combination of the two. The opening line references not just one person but "all of my friends," as if it suggest that they're at a point at which they feel betrayed by everyone, shunned, lonely, and unloved. Probably by significant others, friends, fans, record labels (lousy mojo bastards), etc.

    General CommentI think it draws a nice parallel to both RBF's situation and growing up in general.

    A person who, by some odd chance has done something to inadvertantly gain the ire of his equals. The instrumentals just sound so epic near the end, it sounds like the person is finally had enough of it.
