"Most Likely To Succeed" as written by and Chuck Melugin Ryan Reynolds....
Does it really matter how far you go?
Can you get some sleep now,
Standing on so many toes?

Do what you do when you say what you want to say,
With or without regard for me.
Scheme what you scheme when you're thinking of yourself,
You're the most likely to succeed.

Now that my purpose has been served,
Make a caste system for a modern world.
Your motto rings, "Tomorrow brings,
Another life to underrate,
To belittle and humiliate."

Does it really matter how far you go?
Can you get some sleep now,
Standing on so many toes?

Do what you do when you say what you want to say,
With or without regard for me.
Scheme what you scheme when you're thinking of yourself,
You're the most likely to succeed.
The yearbook said that you'd be another winner,
You forgot what success should mean.
The poster child for becoming homeless,
Mr. Most Likely to Succeed.

And as you go,
Call to mind the things you've come to know.
Be sure to wave goodbye,
On that day you die,
To all that you wanted,
You're leaving behind.

Do what you do when you say what you want to say,
With or without regard for me.
Scheme what you scheme when you're thinking of yourself,
You're the most likely to succeed.
The yearbook said that you'd be another winner,
You forgot what success should mean.
The poster child for becoming homeless,
Mr. Most Likely to Succeed.

    General CommentThis song is about somebody leaving all his friend and loved ones behiend so he can stand in the spot light and receive all the fame. I think this song shows how all the fame and riches in the world are not worth the people you love. I love this song because it describes F.I.F perfectly, they are one of those bands that would never lay down what they beleived in for any amount of money or popularity. It shows how you do so much wrong and than you wander if it was really worth all this. You choose your own life just try to get it right.

    You cant go wrong with God.

    General CommentIn general I also think that it is about those overachievers that are basically just egotistical jerks. About how the ones who cut throats and tell lies to get in front are most likely to succeed. How by being selfish, you get get ahead in this life, but how their over attraction on earthly things will leave them nothing when they die.

    Does anyone know the meaning of "poster child of becoming homeless?"
