Alright what are we doing here?

You're looking at your arm, it stings like a bee now
Rollercoaster up in the air
You wanna pop a bubble but you know it's only trouble
'cuz you think that no one better would care
Wham, bam, it's a scam, no demand, we got plans
We got nothin' better to say
So we make our only choices that reminded you of voices
Sayin' that nothin's really better today

I wanna hide, wanna be alone
And if I can't decide I get it on my own

Shakin' like a leaf you know the reason I wanna be
The sacrifices that'll live in your skin
You're steady and you're hollow when you started seein' double
And you never know the places you been
Can't sit, take a hit, we got tipped, I got it
A substance that is better than air
We couldn't tell apart and it almost broke my heart
The situation, well it just wasn't fair

You can never do anything that's never been done before
You can try a different style, but you'll end up the same as before
Wasted

Seven side, east and wide, you go by, day and night
We got nothin' better all day
Stand out in the yard and you would kinda look retarded
Make a feeling, get a feeling, go away

I wanna hide, wanna be alone
And if I can't decide I get it on my own

Tired on my own you know they like a resistance
Even I'm a movie star fan
She got within my car and then she leaves me at the bar
And makes me cry and make up the other way

Wham, bam, it's a scam, no demand, we got plans
We got nothin' better to say
So we make our only choices, make our minds and make our voices change
And nothin's really different today

You can never do anything that's never been done before
You can try a different style but you always end up on the floor

Wasted

    General CommentI really think the lyrics on this song are wrong, but I've looked for other versions and they're all exactly this. Same format and everything. Copy pasted everywhere. Can someone please figure out the real lyrics! Hahaha.

    You're looking at your ???, sting like a bee now
    Rollercoaster up in the air
    You wanna pop a bubble but you know it's only trouble
    'cuz you think that noone better would care
    Wham, bam, it's a scam, no demand, we got plans
    We got nothin' better to say
    So we make our only choices that reminded you of voices
    Sayin' that nothin's really better today

    I wanna hide, wanna be unknown
    And if I can't decide I get it on my own

    Singin' like a leaf you know the reason ???
    Sacrifices that'll live in your skin
    You're steady and you're ??? when you started seein' double
    And you never know the places you been
    Can't sit, take a hit, we got tipped, I got ???
    A substance that is better than air
    We couldn't tell apart and it almost broke my heart
    The situation, well it just wasn't fair

    You can never do anything that's never been done before
    You can try a different style ??? that said it before
    Wasted

    ??? (No idea here)
    We got nothin' better all day
    Stand out in the yard and you would kinda look retarded
    Get a feeling, go away

    I wanna hide, wanna be unknown
    And if I can't decide I get it on my own

    Tired on my own you know they like a resistance
    Even though ???
    She got within my car and then she leaves me at the bar
    And makes me cry and ??? the other way

    Wham, bam, it's a scam, no demand, we got plans
    We got nothin' better to say
    So we make our only choices, make our minds and make our voices
    Changin', nothin's really different today

    You can never do anything that's never been done before
    You can try a different style but you always end up on the floor

    Wasted

    As far as the meaning goes, from what I can gather it may be about the whole rockstar lifestyle, what with all the drug references and maybe being scammed by executives and stuff, but also (as implied by the chorus) about the fact that nobody can ever truly be original in the music business, as there are set genres and standards about what makes a song "good" and there always have been, and if you don't adhere to those standards by trying something that's "new and different" you'll probably fail miserably. I think it's a statement about the fact that he doesn't give a **** what other people think and he'll make the music he wants, even if it means sacrificing popularity (I wanna hide, wanna be unknown And if I can't decide I get it on my own).

    I dunno, maybe I'm overanalyzing. Maybe it doesn't really mean anything. O_o

    I wish I could sing like Gibby, without having to do all the things Gibby's done.
