"If you're mean to someone, someone could be, someone could be mean back to you. for example, if there's some guy, he kept saying bad things about someone, later on sometimes, someone might be mean to him, and if you don't, if you don't say anything to them, they're just trying to get your attention probably, because if you don't say anything to them, they'll eventually stop bothering you."


I'm not a victim of some feeble mind disease
Although some of my old friends would tend to disagree
I know these chemicals will get the best of me
I'm not saying that I want to quit, it just makes it hard to breath
But who needs lungs when you just bought a brand new pen
And there's stacks and stacks of envelopes just waiting to be sent
I looked through my closet and I found those magazines
I circled all the writers that I one day hoped to meet

Don't get me wrong, I don't mind getting bad reviews
In fact sometimes they're the only ones who try and speak the truth
But there are others who just love to cross that line
Hoping that their viciousness will boost traffic on their site
Like that kid who asked me if I knew I couldn't sing
That's like asking a blind man if he knows that he can't see
Next time try putting down something we don't know
Like how they gave a writing job to someone so damn slow

And then you went and said you didn't understand
How a girl so beautiful could love a guy like him
Now that's a question you should be saving for your wife
And while you're on the subject ask her where she was last night
Because she didn't go to her sister's for a drink
She was backstage at our show sitting on my knee
Telling us about how you walked in on her
With her hands inside her pants and singing all the words
Those very lyrics that you tried to criticize
But as we expected you misquoted half the lines
I guess this is a game that we both just have to play
I'll keep putting records out and you keep throwing them away

    General CommentI think this song is about always trying to impress certain people - but no matter what you do, there is always criticism, with nothing nice to say.

    So no matter how hard you try, you'll never live up to the expectations that that person wants from you.

    hahaha.....oh snap!

    I really love that he's so human, you know?
    He's willing to accept bad reviews and criticism as a part of being a musician -- but is totally not above giving shit right back to people who go overboard.

    General CommentThis song is great but the guy leaving the message kinda turns me off of it... but a little thing like that can't ruin the greatness!


    "Don't get me wrong I don't mind getting bad reviews

    heh heh he doesn't mind.

    General Commentmarc biannci has a great mind.

    the things with great musicians is that you want nothing more to be a friend, but if you ever met them, you would just be a fan. nothing more. but i guess that's all you can do give your suppot and hope they keep putting out great music.

    marc is truley inspiring and i guess looking at this song you can tell he knows he has fans, no matter how much people try to criticize him. that's great.
