[Chorus:]
We trusted you, we put out a helping hand
Only in return, we get a stabbing in the back

I paid a visit to a man who was pretty crazy
Cooled off in the shade, we were feelin' lazy
Trouble starts coming, nothing can phase me
When tomorrow looks very hazy
Took us for granted, let's start here
Friendship over, so very clear
Then what is fair is gonna be fair
Fuck you...you're over

[Chorus]

It's time to weed out the weak, do away with their lives
I see it so clear now, through my open eyes
Stood by your side, you put a knife in my back
Never ever thought it'd be you who would do me like that
But we live and we learn, or so it's said
One thing about you, I can't wait till you're dead
The mistakes I've made won't happen again
Keep my enemies closer than I keep my friends

It's got me fucked up, I just can't let it go
Will we ever be the same? Well my answer is no
Think about your death every goddamn day
Wanna know what I think? This is what I must say
I say we line 'em all up, then we gun 'em all down
Then we all celebrate when they all hit the ground
Don't wake up now, it's gonna be too late
Don't give me that shit about cleaning the slate
You've been at it too long, all your life that I've checked
Now your time's almost up with a noose on your neck
Smile in my face, better watch your back
Two-faced motherfucker gets both jaws cracked

[Chorus]

[Instrumental]

If you don't stand for nothing I can't really stand behind you
Who knew you withdrew your point of view
I lost mine, you cry and whine all the time
And I cant stand aside or anywhere near you
I'd get in check, you're a wreck, no respect,
In effect you elect me to fuckin' hate you
I'll break you down on the ground, I've found
You're a clown, I'm around, you want war? I'll take you
Stand aside, take a ride, I won't try, you're a lie, my lyrical lesson will teach you
So take a stand if you can, my man, go where I stand, I'll hold my land
But in the real world you get squashed and then stung
Get hit bitch, slit, aw then you get hung
in a fantasy all day long, it must be so fun being so fucking dumb

[Chorus]

    General CommentWhat's the deal with these guys and 'backstabbing'?

    General CommentIt's pretty ironic that Tim Armstrong should sing about backstabbing in this period of his life right before Bridy left him for Josh Homme.
    Obviously this song is about misplaced trust and the want for revenge. I can identify with that about many people. I like the line "One thing about you, I can't wait till you're dead" .
    Also, all the violent imagery used; "I say we line 'em all up, then we gun 'em all down
    Then we all celebrate when they all hit the ground "

    "Two-faced motherfucker gets both jaws cracked "
    That's some clever shit LS. That's some clever shit

    This is cool because it emphasises the way death is celebrated throughout the song.

    General CommentThis is one killer song. I can relate this to my brother because he is always stealing shit from me and my family, and he always does crazy shit. One time he even gave my mom a black eye, that was pretty savage.

    General CommentThis song actually is about Tim's relationship with Brody.
    Basically she used him to get a leg up on Tim's record company, Hellcat Records. Once The Distillers made it, she kicked him to the curb. That's what this song is about.
