Get up, get up
Come on, come on, lets go
There's just a few things
I think that you should know
Those words at best
Were worse than teenage poetry
Fragment ideas
And too many pronouns
Stop it, come on
You're not making sense now
You can't make them want you
They're all just laughing

Literate and stylish (literate and stylish)
Kissable and quiet (kissable and quiet)
Well that's what girls dreams are made of
And that's all you need to know (and that's all you need to know)
You have it or you don't (you have it or you)
You have it or you (don't)

You have it or you
You see how much time you're wastin'?
You're coward of seperatin'

Stop it, come on
You know I can't help it
I got the mic
And you got the mosh pit
What will it take
To make you admit that you were wrong?
Was his demise so carefully constructed?
Well let's just say I got what I wanted
Cause in the end it's always the same (you're still gone)
Let's go

Literate and stylish (literate and Stylish)
Kissable and quiet (kissable and quiet)
Well that's what girls dreams are made of
And that's all you need to know (and that's all you need to know)
You have it or you don't (you have it or you)
You have it or you (don't) don't

This is me with the words on the tip of my tongue
And my eye through the scope
Down the barrel of a gun (gun,gun)
Remind me not to ever act this way again
This is you trying hard to
Make sure that you're seen
With a girl on your arm
And your heart on your sleeve
Remind me not to ever think of you again
This is me with the words
On the tip of my tongue
And my eye through the scope
Down the barrel of a gun
Remind me not to ever act this way again (again)
Again (again)

This is me with the words
On the tip of my tongue
And my eye on the scope
Down the barrel of a gun
I'll never act this way again

Rest the weight (I know somethin' that you don't know)
You've had your chance and folded
Don't hold your breath
Because you'll only make things worse [Repeat x2]

(I know somethin' that you don't know)
This is me with the words
(I know somethin' that you don't know)
And you sure don't
Hold your, hold your breath
(I know somethin' that you don't know)
Because you'll only make things worse [Repeat x3]

Don't hold your breath because you'll only make things worse!

    General Comment:this song is definatly my 2nd favorite on the album... i always felt that it was about a friendship gone wrong cause the other guy is trying to hard to be cool or to get all the girls. i could be completely off, but ya know, who cares? the songs still great. id love to hear what someone else thinks however.
