"Goodbye" as written by Butch Walker and Mitchell Allan Scherr....
I'm everything you know
You wonder friend of foe
I'm the burning in your throat when you swallow
But you spit me out

Your stomach full of doubt
Now you're faking every word out of your mouth
But you won't let go
It's all about control

Understand I'm born to lead you will follow
I don't want to stay
I'm running away
Don't you hear me when I say

Goodbye,so long, nice try, I'm gone
You don't like being second
I don't like being wrong
I won't forget the way you made me feel

I won't regret running away from here
You think you see the world well you see nothing
Time is only gonna make it worse in the end
So I'll say goodbye again

Now it's there to see
You've forgiven me
Ever since I was the prince among thieves
So you hold me down

Strip away my crown
Can't contain me knowing all the truth I found
Always thinking small
Helping me to fall

Now you're jealousy and hate consumes us all
I don't want to stay
I'm running away
Don't you hear me when i say

Don't hit me with you fears
I won't fit with your ideas
You missed what I'm about
I earned my way out

And in the end
I'll say goodbye again

    General CommentWow, no comments on a song this insanely good?!

    Lemme start by saying this is one of my favorite songs by SR-71. Next, this song seems to be about someone leaving a relationship in which he's been mistreated or cheated on or whatever ("I won't forget, the way you made me feel. I won't regret, running away from heree") The person he is leaving ends up missing him and wanting him back ("Understand I'm going to leave you will follow") , but when he won't come back she ends up despising him ("Now your jealousy and hate consumes us all").

    God damn what an awesome song.
