Rule one, is hang up your phone, because if you knew what's next, you'd never chase another dream again.
All you wanted was an answer, not just to suffer. Who are you weighing down?
All you wanted was the offer, not just to suffer. And it's not the end.
Rule 6 is to hold that tongue. Because you're fucked if you forget: rules 3 and 4 and 5 were made by them.
All you wanted was an answer, not just to suffer. Who are you weighing down?
All you wanted was the offer, not just to suffer.
But down the road, you'll want to shut me out instead. Right.
You'll want to shut me out. You'll fit in real well.
Successful. Shock the world. But you'll never learn.
People: units sold. You can drop the role.
Let's call us what we are now.

    General CommentNo comments? Hmm possibly my favorite song by these guys. Love it love it love it. To me, just wanting an answer and not to suffer means that, you are confused about aspects or a relationship or there is a lack of clarity. So you call the other person to finally discuss it after a long period of discomfort and suffering, and the response is what you were fearing and not hoping for. The other person decides to move on, you feel shut out.

    General CommentVery good song. Reminiscent of Hot Water Music, No Division, but with a faster, harder sound.

    General CommentThe song is about ditching your friends for the "cool kids" basically. Im guessing the "cool kids" are someone famous.
    This is either from the band's perspective about someone else, or from someone else's perspective about them.
