Started breaking some of the rules, then you broke them all
I know that there’s a war in your head, you can’t win them all
And I can’t take this all to bed, just as you expected
Your self-fulfilled prophecy’s already leading to the next
Tree to climb up from the depths
You reach the top, you’re done with him
It sounds familiar, it’s all been done
Now I see you around, around the bends
I’m not to sure you still have it
Another old insult for me signed personal friend

    General CommentInteresting song really. I wonder who was the author on the lyrics? Was it joey? Was this song about another member of the band?

    Anyway, my take on this song. It's talking about somebody who has psychological problems (depression maybe). They are trying to deal with it themselves, doing drugs (broke the rules), feeling satisfied with sucess. Then, once they reach what they wanted, they are still depressed. Why? Because DEPRESSION IS NOT SELF CURABLE! They feel even more pressure to stay at the top and depression increases even.

    Id rather not touch the "self-fulfilled prophecy" part.... because i dont want to allude to something that isnt fact.
