"Short Fuse Burning" as written by and Louis James Schaub Christopher Demakes....
These are all reasons why
I'll be exploding tonight
And why this chip on my shoulder
Feels like a mile wide
It's from the overwork
Overtime compromise

So I'm looking tonight
For some peace of mind
Maybe then I'll find some strength inside
'Cause I've lost any hope of ever changing
I'm a short fuse burning

And remember who I
Who I used to be
Just this one-trick pony
So strung on routine
Yeah, stuck on repeat
Like you couldn't even believe

So I'm looking tonight
For some peace of mind
Maybe then I'll find some strength inside
'Cause I've lost any hope of ever changing
I'm a short fuse burning

And everybody don't forget me
Forget me
And everybody don't forget me
I'm not who I used to be
And everybody don't for
And everybody don't for
And everybody don't forget me
I'm not who I used to be

So I'm looking tonight
For some peace of mind
Maybe then I'll find some strength inside
'Cause I've lost any hope of ever changing
I'm a short fuse burning

And everybody don't forget me
Forget me
And everybody don't forget me
I'm not who I used to be
And everybody don't for--
And everybody don't for--
And everybody don't forget me
I'm not who I used to be

    General CommentWhy are there no comments on this song??? This is in my opinion the best less than jake song there is. The lyrics are amazing and its probably thir best guitar song.
    doesnt need a lot of explination, just that he's at a point in his life that he can't stand and he's not who he used to be anymore and he hopes everyone remembers the old him because he doesn't like who he's become so hes about to let it all out.
