"Don't Need You" as written by and Derek Gledhill Ryan Martin....
They always warned
Don't get caught up you'll just get burned
The storm has come
To crumble my world to the ground
Now I'm cutting myself off
Am I really done with you?

Yeah, yeah, get out
I don't need you anymore
Yeah, Yeah, get out
I don't need you anymore

We breathe as one
To feed the fiend that I've become
This is so hard
You help me cover all my scars
But now I'm cutting myself off
Am I really done with you?

Yeah, yeah, get out
I don't need you anymore
Yeah, Yeah, get out
I don't need you anymore
Yeah, Yeah, get out
I don't need you anymore
Yeah, Yeah, get out
I don't need you anymore

Someday we'll see a better, stronger me
Once I get the fuck away from, the fuck away from you

Yeah, yeah, get out
I don't need you anymore
Yeah, yeah, get out
I don't need you anymore
Yeah, yeah, get out
I don't need you anymore
Yeah, yeah, get out
I don't need you anymore

    General CommentI cant beleive no body has commented this song yet. I love smile empty soul their songs are so easy to relate to for so many people.

    The meaining is pretty obvious hes trying to get away from his girlfriend becaue he knows that after the relationship is better and he can "get the fuck away from her" the his life will be better. I think hes having a hard time tho hes telling himself he doesnt need her buit it hink somehow hes still emotionally attached.

    General Commenti think he has a girlfriend who is a drug addict, and she is dragging him down also. he knows he must let her go or go down that road with her. when he say's he 's cutting himself off he means it in two ways. 1. from the girl. 2. from the drugs and the life she brings around.

    We breathe as one
    to feed the fiend that I've become

    i think this means when they are together they feed off each others bad habits and make it worse for each other. just my thoughts. could be totally wrong

    General CommentI agree with the drug addict theory. I think that he pushed away all his friends

    "They always warned
    Don’t get caught up you’ll just get burned"

    that makes me think all his friends told him not to get caught up in her and the drugs but he didn't listen and now the "storm has come" and their going to break up and he wonders if he can go on without the drugs because she and the drugs "cover his scars" and help him forget about his shitty past.

    Just my views.

    General CommentYeah, it sounds like he's talking /to/ the drugs. At first I thought maybe it sounded a little generic with the words and sound, but seeing it that way actually makes me feel a little better. Smile Empty Soul kicks ass.
