"Motivation Proclamation" as written by and Benji/madden Madden....
Spend your lazy, endless crazy days, inside my head,
You're so selfish, you're not the only one who thinks he's dead
I'm paid to smile, now I'm on trial for what you think I said
'Cause I never said that everything would be ok,
And I never said that we would live to see another day

[Chorus]
Motivate me, I want to get myself out of this bed,
Captivate me, I want good thoughts inside of my head,
When I fall down would you come around and pick me right up off the ground

I'm un-artistic, I'm un-realistic,
You say I'm selfish and absurd
You try to change me, you try to save me
You say I'm gonna learn, I'm so blind,
I'm out of time, You're so unkind sometimes,
I never lied, I never lied, I never lied

[Chorus]

'Cause everything it'll be ok,
You know we're gonna live to see another day,
Yeah, yeah
Motivate me, yeah,
Motivate me, yeah

    General CommentThis song is awesome. It sounds even better when it's performed. I'll take a stab at it and say that it's about someone who treated him badly, but at the same time, he can't stop thinking about him/her.

    General CommentI think this is a sad song...

    "You're so selfish, you're not the only one who thinks he's dead
    I'm paid to smile, now I'm on trial for what you think I said
    'Cause I never said that everything would be ok"

    That sounds sad. I think he just wants help feeling better.

    General CommentThis song is cool, the video rocks too. This guy is obviously a pessimist, and needs to be "Motivated" into being positive, and to be "picked up off the ground" when things don't go his way, or when life is just sucking. This is a good song to be inspired by if you're feeling kinda sucky.
