takin up my time again, the one that i cant stand,
coffee and the conversation never ends when all i really need to find,
is one short clever line to pinpoint my disgust its always just too much,
or not enough and im overwhelmed...

so ill keep it simple for obvious reasons and ill say what i should and just hope you believe me but it never gets easier, never gets easier...

oh no no...

singin to myself again cant hear a word youve said the syllables the sounds just are in sentences and all i really wanna do is tear straight into you explode unload a hail of insults til you finally get it, im sick to death...

but ill keep it simple for obvious reasons and ill say what i should and just hope you believe me but it never gets easier, no it never gets easier...

oh no no...

a strong distaste for confrontation leaves no room for self-expression, such a strain to remain so docile Oh dont you know it all takes its toll...

ill keep it simple for obvious reasons and ill say what i should and just hope you believe me but it never gets easier, no it never gets easier, oh it never gets easier, well it never gets easier, no it never gets easier, oh it never gets easier...

(tear straight into you)

    General CommentThere's nothing concrete about it on any new releases. John just says that we weren't supposed to hear it.

    Very fun song to listen to.

    General CommentI personally think it's about people screwing you up and you just feel sick with all the complications and stress.

    "singin to myself again cant hear a word youve said the syllables the sounds just are in sentences and all i really wanna do is tear straight into you explode unload a hail of insults til you finally get it, im sick to death... "
    I really like this verse because the way John sings in such a positive voice you don't quite take in the nastyness of what he's saying.
    Awesome song

    General CommentI totally agree wiseaimee! I esp. feel this way at work (retail) sometimes...Or with friends + family! -- just life in general! LOL

    It's about being around people you don't really want to deal with in the first place, or ever (again) -- I say this because it could about...you know who...(Mr. A.L.). Cliche cliche, I know.

    Although he did reference to "the one that I can't stand" (LOL -- are they still even friends?), this song like ALL of the other BILLIONS of songs out there can definitely be related to ANYTHING...

    Personalize it for yourself!
