"Goodbye" as written by Earl Simmons, L Wilson, B Palmer and Sergio Moore....
All that you do is steps above
Anything else we could dream of
My tabloid girl you're miracle
Gods gave to us but cynical
What're these battles around you
Walking on next just behind you
Spit on your face I love to
If only I didn't love you
And many of your friends would say
That you look today
Goodbye
Goodbye
The man to your dismay
You'll turn your head one day
Goodbye
Goodbye

Humbleness of me to share the love
But you never caught that drifting jar
My little girl, you'll see the world
A dismal place where you're the thrill
And things you certain did in grace
Larger than life to our human race
If I could just pull back your ??? make them tie
My sweet there's nothing larger than life
I hear my conscience say that you look good today
Goodbye
Goodbye
The man to disbelief
You'll turn your pretty cheeks

You never caught that drifting jar
You never caught that drifting jar
And many of your friends would say
That you look today
And in your special way
You know before they told you
The man you're going to lay
You'll turn your head one day
Goodbye (goodbye)
Goodbye (goodbye)
Goodbye (goodbye)
Goodbye (goodbye)
Goodbye (goodbye)

    My InterpretationThis is my interpretation.

    This guy is going out with a prominent girl that everyone admires and thinks is "larger than life." She makes friends easily but always has to say goodbye to them because of her lifestyle. In the beginning of the song she's saying goodbye with dismay but at the end she says it with no delay (or emotion?) because it might be happening too often. It's possible that the lifestyle is getting old for her. People tell her she looks good but she never gets to see them again. Her boyfriend has been with her for who knows how long and he obviously saw something more than just looks in her because he dumps her despite that.

    Her boyfriend tolerates her lifestyle but takes notice that she isn't doing the same for him, "Humbleness taught me to share the love, but you never caught that drift did ya?" She might be doing something questionable outside of their relationship. He dumps her, "And then to disbelief, you turned your pretty cheek, Goodbye! Goodbye!", even though he knows she's pretty, "I hear my conscience say, that you look good today." He never mentions that he admires her prominence, in fact he says he wishes he could show her that she's not larger than life. To him she's just a person like everyone else.

    This is one of my all-time favorite songs and Alien Ant Farm is a very underrated band.
