"Pathetic" as written by and Scott/hoppus Raynor....
I know I'm pathetic I knew when she said it
A loser a bum's what she called me when I drove her home
There's no more waiting and sure no more wasting
I've done all I can but she still wants to be left alone
You got, you got, you got to help me out
And I'll try not to argue
No one, no one, no one likes a drop-out
Mistakes are hard to undo

Don't pull me down this is where I belong
I think I'm different but I'm the same and I'm wrong
Don't pull me down this is where I belong
I think I'm different, this is where I belong

I think it's disgusting believing and trusting
If I gave a fuck there would be nothing for me to prove
Although it's amusing It's slightly confusing
I've done all I can but her ego is still hard to move

Don't pull me down this is where I belong
I think I'm different but I'm the same and I'm wrong
Don't pull me down this is where I belong
I think I'm different, this is where I belong

    General CommentNah, you guys are all wrong (No offense). According to Tom, this songs about the feeling that you're going nowhere (because he did shitty in high school, and then dropped out of a junior college to pursue blink), and the "girl" in the song is actually his Mother.

    "I know I'm pathetic, I knew when she said it

    From the words of Mr. Delonge. :P
