"What I Believe" as written by and Deryck Jason/nori Whibley....
Lies and deceiving is what I'm believing
Up to my knees so hard to breathe
It helps that you aren't there
Can't figure out what's the right thing for me
Guess I'll have to wait and see

So understanding but so far from the truth
It's what I have to live with
It's not all I wanted to be
It's not all I wanted to see
I can't keep on leading
I've left what I'm leaving
Guess that's just what I believe

Consciously taking and overly faking
I can't believe all the things that you're saying
Seems all so simple it's all up to you
Time after time
You lost what you couldn't find

It's what you could
It's only what you could
Don't take not what you could
But I know what's up

    General Commenthalf hour of power is pretty good, i have all 4 cds, but i dont no which one is my favorite.. cuz we have half hour of pwer where they r first starting out, all killer no filler, when they had alot of fun, does this look infected when they got more into their song meanings, and chuck where their lyrics r like amazing, so i guess i like to listen to half hour of power, and all killer no filler if im like in a fun mood, but does this look infected and chuck if im in a serious mood

    General Commentto me this song is about how somebody is going through a really tough time and there is this one person who tries to help him out but he's just making it worse because he's insensitive and the one guy can tell that this person who is trying to help him really doesnt understand or give a shit

    General CommentFrom analyzing the lyrics, you can tell it's written from the viewpoint of a pedophile lifestyle. Kind of gross if you ask me, but whatever. I'm noticing a trend in Sum 41 songs, where not only all the lyrics suck, but they are mostly about homosexual insecurity and pedophile stories. Weird, huh.
