It's your last chance to change things. I know you've been getting by, but I saw you at the party without a drink in hand or a word in mouth.

Nothin' to do or talk about. Poor skinny fat kid without any interest in making friends. It's not easy being, but i know, it's not easy being...

Uh oh go.
Oh no go on.
Oh go on no.
Go on.

    General Commenti think he says "it's not easy being, i-i know"

    i'm very unsure of this as i type this comment.

    General Commentive been listening to it a lot, its definitely "Its not easy being - " Then he goes into the "I-I know." But I think its more an implied "Its not easy being (friends)". He tends to sing about a particular break up with a girl. I think hes friends with her now, and he still wants to be back together with her. like, "its your last chance to change things" is sort of him telling either himself or her that this is it, its his last chance to get back together with her.

    so i think he implies there that its not easy being friends with her.

    General CommentIt sounds like trying to gain some intamacy during a moment of potential catharsis/realised catharsis (they know they can't be together/they've split and are unhappy; he's teetering on the edge of convincing her not to go/come back)... but this personal moment between the two of them is taking place in the melee, as you zoom out, towards the end of the song, and see the rest of the scene, the peoples voices drowning out his call...

    My InterpretationI think this is about himself, he's looking back to how he was when he was younger. How socially awkward he was. It's scary how much I relate to this, the line "poor skinny fat kid, without any interest in making friends" describes me, since I used to be chubby and nearly friendless, now I'm just one of those.
