Submission- My back hurts from bowing down.
Attraction - Was once so strong now can't be found.
Affection - One gift I wish you would return.
Frustration - as I accede.
I do not deserve your frigidness, such callousness,
yet I persist. What's wrong with me?
I told you "you can't be replaced",
you showed me I'm disposable.
Spit in my face, as I submit, so I quit!

    General Commentdescribing my shitty job at classic pizza when all your intent is good, and nobody seems to give a god damn. this shows that you CAN be bought and sold or just thrown away.

    General CommentAnd it makes sense that it could be about a job, since the Three Seconds Notice sounds like an allusion to the two weeks notice you give bosses before you quit.

    General Commentin my opinion, i see this song basically being about Zero Tolerance. It's like he was putting himself through so much shit to please someone and it's gotten to the point of FUCK THIS. We've all experienced it before, whether its a girl/boyfriend who treats you like shit, or a boss, or whatever. Davey is showing how you dont have to put up with shit.

    SPIT IN MY FACE AS I SUBMIT SO I QUIT! --> I do everything you say yet you still treat me shitty? FUCK THIS

    General CommentIt's about how you used to care so much about people, but then you opened your eyes and found out how much they've stabbed you in the back and were so ungreatful of you. so then you tell the world to fuck off.
