betrayed again by those around me
no one to blame 'cause i surround myself
why can’t my friends just make me happy
to do it right you’ve got to do it yourself

i’m on a mission to achieve my goals
succeed in those things that i care for most
i’m free

can’t stand the sight of you without me
the thought alone just makes my stomach turn
how come i can't just make you happy
to do it right you’ve got to do it alone

    General Commentamazing song. I can really relate to it... if you have a chance, try to look for it... it's worth every second. I love Taproot.

    anyway, onto the song meaning!:

    "betrayed again by those around me
    no one to blame 'cause i surround myself
    why can’t my friends just make me happy
    to do it right you’ve got to do it yourself"

    well obviously this is pretty easy... the person keeps getting stabbed in the back by the ones he trusted so much, and he acknowledges that it is his fault because he associated himself with the wrong people, so now he has to try and a make a change for the better and meet new people.

    "i’m on a mission to achieve my goals
    succeed in those things that i care for most
    i’m free"

    pretty self-explanatory. he's just trying to motivate himself and stay focused in achieving what he feels is the right thing to do, in this case, meet new people and make friends.

    "can’t stand the sight of you without me
    the thought alone just makes my stomach turn
    how come i can't just make you happy
    to do it right you’ve got to do it alone"

    this part could mean 2 things, either 1. now that he has met new people and has new friends, he's looking back & remembering all the good times he had with his old friends that fucked him over, and he just wants things to go back to the way things were, but he knows that it can't ever be that way, and it kills him inside. but, he knows that he can't keep living in the past, and has to move on. or 2. it's about a girl, and how he just wants to be around her all the time, but he can't because there's always something in the way, and it pisses him off. so then he resorts to masturbating ("to do it right you've got to do it alone") lol. that's how I see it anyway.
