"Chap Stick, Chapped Lips, And Things Like Chemistry" as written by and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
Okay, so, who doesn't own a cell phone
Who brought back their permission slip
Because I know nobody wants to stay home
While the rest of us go out and make a day of it

'Cause theme parks are so much more fun when the sun's outside
And I lost my phone to the lake beneath the batman ride
They're starting something, and I don't want to begin it
They're looking for trouble, but with me it won't be found
And I regret that I'm completely out of daytime minutes
And so I guess I'll have to wait a lot til 8 o'clock comes around

Okay, so, who doesn't own a cell phone
Well I don't need to ask my friends
Because I know mine was fastened to my jawbone
Thanks to all those nights and weekends

'Cause theme parks are so much more fun when the sun's outside
And I lost my phone to the lake beneath the batman ride
They're starting something, and I don't want to begin it
They're looking for trouble, but with me it won't be found
And I regret that I'm completely out of daytime minutes
And so I guess I'll have to wait a lot til 8 o'clock comes around

When it comes to relationships (I'm the dumbest one)
And I don't mean just with girls (I mean with everyone)
Your illustrations always point out just what's wrong with me
It's chapstick, and chapped lips, and things like chemistry

It's chapstick, and chapped lips, and things like
It's chapstick, and chapped lips, and things like
It's chapstick, and chapped lips, and things like
Chemistry.

Can I relate to you the way you relate to me
Can you help me out with my chemistry
I don't want to be perceived the way I am
I just want to be perceived the way I am

    General Commenti think this is just a song about a field trip to six flags or something, when you're in highschool, and all the crazy crap highschoolers go through like running out of cell phone minutes and confusing relationships and not being able to go on the stupid field trip cuz you forgot to tell the rents (parents, for those that don't know). and the video was really weird, but i think that was the point. a lot of relient k's songs sound like they got inspiration from something that just randomly happened and just wrote something down while they still had it. i'm a songwriter, and i know that inspiration doesn't come all that often so you just roll with it eventually. it's weird, i get all my song ideas in algebra 2 class, so i'm either talking about being sleepy or parabolas. haha, just kidding. mostly.

    General CommentThis song rocks! Relient K is so awesome because to be a Christian band you must also live it. I'm in a Christian band and i know that sometimes it's hard to stand for Christ in the midst of a secular world but if it's God's will you can. This cd is their best one. These guys have fun with their music and that's so awesome.

    General CommentI'm dont have a full grasp on what this song is about, but I think it has to do with maybe a girl who makes him talk on his cell phone all the time. Or having to talk to people all the time on his cell phone. I don't know, who knows. who cares its one of their best songs!
