You and me and this decision,
It's more than just a headache.
Why ruin today? Don't bring it up.
It's just something we've gotta deal with.
We all saw it coming.
For now let's just pretend
To be the best attempt at best friends.

Follow the leader until they stray.

The getaway,
The things that stick.
If this is how you're gonna be,
Then I think you should go away.

You're a rock star.
Tune out then tune back in.
If this how you're gonna be,
Then you're not human,
You can't be human.

Isn't a little late for a riddle,
'Cause you claim to be an open book?
Some might call you complex,
But I'm just hearing nonsense.

It's nice to meet you, not nice to part;
Nice goes a long way in a forgiving heart.
You used up your chances.
Go find someone else to ruin.

I think you're ugly on the inside.

The getaway,
The things that stay.
If this is how you're gonna be,
Then I think you should go away.
You're the rockstar.
Tuned out, come tune back in.
If this is how you're gonna be,
Then you're not human,
You can't be human.
You're just not human.
Yeah, you're not human.

Please getaway from the things that stick.
If this is how you're gonna be,
Then I think you should go away.
You're such a rockstar!
Tuned out? Well tune back in!
If this is how you're gonna be...

The getaway, yeah...
You're such a rockstar!
Tuned out? Come tune back in!
If this is how you're gonna be,
Then you're not human,
You can't be human.

    General Commentclearly about a ruined friendship.
    totally reminds me & my EXbestfriend and being okay with it because she just wasnt worth the trouble any more.

    You used up your chances.
    Go find someone else to ruin.
    I think you're ugly on the inside.

    General Commenti personally think this is about a couple breaking up and they are trying to still be friends and it just ends badly and that is just like me and my ex but lucky for me i don't talk to her anymore she is to fake for me. i love this song and i love this bad i saw them in concert twice already and i will again as soon as they come back the are AMAZING
