"Laughing At You" as written by and Palumbo....
Welcoming you to Cardboard City
Where I think they're laughing at your band
Did you have a clue?
That is was pretty on the gritty bottom of the van...

I'm feeling sorry for your band
Like really sorry about your band
Whoa

[Chorus]
You don't got a a clue
They're laughing at you
Laughing yes it's true
You don't even see they're laughing at you
Laughing at you to me

Your following is fleeting
Watch what you're reading
You might start believing what they're saying about
You and who you know
I'm talking shameless in the thick of that
You can't get rid of that

Desperation is calling you
Desperation is calling you
Whoa

[Chorus: x2]

There are some things you gotta know
They whisper 'bout you when you go
And they will steal your "Heaven's toll"

[Chorus]

You don't got a a clue
They're laughing at you
At everything you do
You don't even see they're laughing at you
Laughing at you to me

I'm feeling sorry for your band
Like really sorry about your band
I'm feeling sorry for your band
Like really sorry about your band

    - "In the thick of it, you can't get rid of it"

    - "There are some things you gotta know
    They will surround you when you fall
    And they will steal your heaven's toll"

    that's it. :)

    General CommentI believe this song is about someone clueless about people talking behind their backs, or making up rumors about them. I think they are particularly talking about a band, possibly HA themselves.

    General Commenti think this song is about people mocking daryls band head automatica, cuz his old band glassjaw is much more hardcore, whie HA is straight pop, and i think people are "laughing" at daryl for his poppy band...glassjaw and head automatica both rock...i ain't laughing at your band

    General Commenti think he's talking more about other people, especially small touring bands. so many times bands work their hardest and still remain the butt of "elist musician's" jokes. he also refers in the bridge to how so many small bands can get screwed over in the process of their career.
