It's never been so crystal clear
That I've been dying six months a year
Arguing with strangers about why I'm still here

No one lets me forget questions about my relevence
And I'm starting to believe their arguments, in my self-defense

It's just my self-destructiveness
And always wasting all my breath
And it's still a mystery to me why I'm doubting all my dreams

All the things that I say
Will someday fade away
But the message in this songs
Have kept me sane all along

The years hit like fist to face
And some days I've tried to replace
This person with the same god-given name

Somedays I shake til noon
I've tried to explain to overcrowded rooms
Across these states my narrow point of view
But what can I do?

It's just my self-destructiveness
And always wasting all my breath
And it's still a mystery to me why I'm doubting all my dreams

All the things that I say
Will someday fade away
But the message in this songs
Have kept me sane all along

    General CommentK- So maybe some of the things in this song are shocking to people but i think it makes prefect sense. He sings about what he cares about and is trying to deliver his message to everybody.

    General CommentI think this is one of the only songs I like on In With The Out Crowd, its sad...
    Anyhoo, yeah, I think its about when you've been in a band so long and you've just been singing and writing and guitarring (is that a word?) your heart out and you just think "wait, what am I doing all this for" and they just want to make it clear. To me the title gives the general idea, y'know, "PS, shock the world, cause if we don't who will?" Don't forget what the music's about.

    General Commentsee what this song is really about is the relationship of recovery from addiction and feeling self defeated..."sometimes i shake til noon...Somedays I shake til noon
    I've tried to explain to overcrowded rooms
    Across these states my narrow point of view
    But what can I do?
    get it
