"I'm not the One" as written by Deryck Jason Whibley and Greig Andrew Nori....
I walk into obsession
Makes the world go round
We're made up by the people we surround
So!
We live in times with shit we don't need
Well maybe, it's the price of envy

With these eyes I look out for me
But everyone fades away who don't see
Nothing's gonna change
Why!
We're going down in flames
So!
I'm not the one

Don't wait for me
Cause I won't just sit by
While you just bleed
Myself and others try
Don't wait for me
To be there in the end
When you don't see
The truth you just pretend
Don't wait for me

What is the solution
We already know
There's no telling how far this could go
No!
You're near your time but you just don't see
Cause you're just
Part of this game

There's nothing you can do to save yourself
You leave your life in the hands of someone else
You'll never let it go
Why!
It's the only way you know
Know!
I'm not the one

Don't wait for me
Cause I won't just
While you just bleed
Myself and others try
Don't wait for me
To be there in the end
When you don't see
The truth you just pretend
Don't wait for me

When did we begin
To let ourselves give in
How'd it come to this
Miserable bliss

Just take the rest of
Just use the best of me
Just take the rest of
Just use the best of me

You take the rest of me
Just take the best of me
You take the rest of me
Just take the best

Don't wait for me
Cause I won't just sit by
While you just bleed
Myself and others try
Don't wait for me
To be there in the end
When you don't see
The truth you just pretend
Don't wait for me

    General Commenti LOVED the intro and the chorus, but once they started with the lyrics, it TOTALLY changed and it wasnt really a good change (in my opinion), if they woulda just kept with the same style as the intro it wouldv been even more amazing.... but i still lov it!!!

    General CommentIs it just me, or does this seem like it borrows some stuff from Linkin Park songs? It's a good song, don't get me wrong, but I think "take the best of me" is a complete rip from the song "A Place For My Head". Nearly EXACTLY the SAME!?!?!?!? `;/

    General Commentits nowhere near a complete rip of a place for my head. besides the fact that they have similar subjects, they sound nothing alike. sure there's that "take the best of me" part but that would be the only part that could be ripped. i doubt it is though, as its only one line.

    General CommentThis is one amazing song i have to say. About 5 months ago i split up with my girlfriend, and since then she went completely psycho; stalking me and driving me insane! These lyrics completely describe what i want to say to her. Wicked!

    General CommentThis song in Deryck's words means "frustration with how others will never leave you alone."

    Also, the lryics aren't 100% there.
    It's "Welcome to obsession"
    "We live and die for shit we don't need"
    "We don't already know"

    General CommentThis CD sounds alot like Linkin Park, especially the screaming. The vocals and the beats are eerily akin to Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory. Just my opinion though...
