"You Know How I Do" as written by Adam Lazzara, Shaun Cooper, John Nolan, Mark O'connell and Edward Reyes....
So sick, so sick of being tired.
And oh so tired of being sick.
We're both such magnificent liars.
So crush me baby, I'm all ears.
So obviously desperate, so desperately obvious.
I'll give in one more time and feed you stupid
Lines all about "cleaning up my act"

We won't stand for hazy eyes anymore.(4X)

So sick, so sick of being tired.
And oh so tired of being sick.
Willing and ready to prove the worst
Of everything you said about.
So obviously desperate, so desperately obvious.
So good at setting bad examples.
Listen, chic, I've had all I can handle.

We won't stand for hazy eyes anymore. (4X)

Think of all the fun you had.
The finest line divides a night well spent from a waste of time.
Think of all the days you spent alone with just
Your T.V. set and "I can barely smile" (2X)

Let's go
He's smoked out in the back of the van, says he's held up with holding on and on and on. (2X)

    General Commentstop freaking out about telling people that the band writes the lyrics that way on purpose...the point is that someone should actually put the real lyrics here instead of copying them out of the booklet, so people could tell what they really say in the song.

    General CommentI think RivalSchools dude is right. And picture in words chick, maybe some of us aren't as talented as you and are just able to understand two, sometimes three people singing in really fast, mumbly voices, along with guitars and drums.

    General Commentdoes anyone else here think this band is incredible? i heard them and i thought they were alright at first, then i saw them live. amazing performance, you wanted to cry it was just so brilliant. a lot of people aren't seeming to like tbs, but i think they are the next great thing in the underground scene, i really hope they stay somewhat local to the scene before MTV gets a hold of them and they become washed up nothings. they deserve greatness

    Song MeaningThis song is definitely all about drugs and being in love(addicted) with drugs at one time. For the people that think this is about a girl, it is NOT! He is talking to the drug like it is a girl(probably marijuana, coke, or heroin) and he and his friends are going through a relationship with it. From a young age we as people are told drugs are bad; but when you try them the first time, they can be fun. but after a while you get sick and tired of it. some of your friends give up drugs some don't.

    Everybody seems to be having problems with the last paragraph of the song.(smoked out in the van, holding on and on and on.)- it's about before you do something when you are an addict you usually get a fix before you do it. no matter what it is. and the reply from an addict is "hold on" (meaning wait a second) so he can take a hit. friends that are addicts tend to get left behind. this guy got left behind in the van.

    General CommentHey people, read this since i'm tired of seeing everyone saying it over and over: ADAM AND THE BAND DON'T WRITE OUT THE LYRICS IN ORDER. They havent, they don't, they won't. If you actually bought the CD, you could see that.

    General Commenti think you all should learn the words yourself, and type them up yourself and stop your bitching! :)
    have a spiffy night.
