I don't want to barge in on your secrecy.
See: dependency.
See: it means nothing to me.
I don't want to hear about your problems
And I don't want to listen to your apathy
See: you're not like me
See: you mean nothing to me
All your cash doesn't make you any greener.

I don't need anyone, I don't need anyone.
I don't need anyone to tell me what to feel.
I don't need anyone, I don't need anyone.
I don't need anyone to hate the world with me.
Day in, day out
It's not that bad.
I worry and I worry
But you'll never have to worry again,
You'll never be alone.

Even if I told you what it meant to me
See: you'd disagree
See: you'd never let it be
See: you just want to dance around the problem
And everybodys talking about your humility
See: your decency
See: its smoke and mirrors to me.
See: you have the world and you pissed it all away

Alone in my room with a bucket full of flem.
I don't need a music scene to tell me who I am.
I should have got a warning,
Should have came a year ago,
Should I sent her a birthday card?
My conscience tells me no.

    General CommentAll he did was change in a new verse in place of the repetition of the first. Wish he did stuff like that for On and On and On, 1234 1234, ect.
    Just to give the album more new content, ya know?

    General CommentBut they werent trying to write a new album, this was jsut to screw over band that claims to be catch 22 from making money off toms work, and thats how he thought the record should originally sound.

    they have a new album coming out later this summer i think its supposed to be released the same time as the new botar album. i can not wait

    General CommentBefore I get to the meaning, wasn't the point of the Keasbey re-release to clear-up and produce the original album?

    Anyways, I think this song refers to how loser guys and girls go and whine to each other about their lives instead of moving forward and making their own futures.

    General CommentI think this song is about tomas himself havnig an intense dislike for the world and its workings (if anyon hasnt pickd up on that, thn they've never listened to streetlight manifesto before) and feels he has genuine and good reasons for hating the world, and hates others that do like him without reason, like a rich persom with a great deal of frinds and a smooth easy life complaining to him about how difficult their life is (yes i am speaking partially of emos) and how he has it easy, when in fact, tomas is th one who through his whole life has had it difficult, but still tries to make the most of his life. This song is about him having no patience for whiners anymore. I could b just grasping at straws, but thats what this song means to me n e way

    General CommentI think this song is about how you can do or be anything you want to if you put your mind to it. And its about how people whine about their lives, when actually they are in 100% control of their lives, and decide to do nothing about it.

    General Commenti think this song is about religion, like streetlight's songs often are

    General CommentDay In Day Out

    This song is about repetitive tasks that he has to do to get by that strangle him, then you look at certain social scenes, where kids are bitching over nothing. They don't know how to do anything by themselves, this song has a lot of independence to it. Pretty much it's the fact that Tom is starting to get into the rhythmic pattern of society and it's people, but hell if he leaves himself like that, he'll never be alone in the world, which sounds extremely sarcastic, or it could be him getting over the fact of the matter.

    This song is great "I don't need a music scene to tell me who I am!" So true, people determine there scene by what and who they listen too. I love Streetlight and Catch 22 but I'm no "Ska head" or "punk" it's just the music I like.

    Maybe there is a love story looking back on it, maybe he lost a girl to a music scene that killed her individualism. Either way great fucking song.
