"The Set Up (You Need This...)" as written by Nasir Jones and Kejuan Waliek Muchita....
I guess it's not fair
For me to not care
But I don't, and that's why
You think I'm a great guy

But I want you and you want me too
And you need this, wanna give it to you
And I thought this time I'd say something new

I'll call you, I swear
So, next time be there
Can't keep up, not more
Should quit but, what for?

But I want you and you want me too
And you need this, wanna give it to you
And I thought this time I'd say something new

It's not cruel, I do like you
And I want you to feel that I do

But I want you and you want me too
And you need this, wanna give it to you
And I thought this time I'd say something new

But I want you and you want me too
And you need this, wanna give it to you
And I thought this time I'd say something new

    Or about a player who's trying to pick up a girl...
    ...but with his bad back, he shouldn't be picking up any girls... ;D

    General Commentwell paws31, i believe this song was deeply annalized on the stage of the live recording by Mr. Scott and after a serious thinker he decided this song was bout "kickin ass" but then aaron goes onto say that he believes the songs about a players attemt to pick up a girl...i enjoy this song....ALOT

    General Commentmusically... best RBF song ever! I love it. But i'm lyrically, really vauge. I think thats the point though since one of the many faces of RBF is rock n roll satire, and all the best rock songs are quite vauge. Anyway, my take on it (from the verses) is that he is saying he is a total jerk, and people only like him because he's in a cool band.

    General Commentthis song isn't really too vague. it's about fuckbuddies. it's not really a very good relationship - he never calls, isn't "something genuine", "should quit but what for?" - but they can't resist each other physically. any guys who think having a fuckbuddy is cool... it doesn't work. trust me.
