"So Far" as written by and Joshua/nelson Todd....
I'll tell you how the story's told
Come on
Oh

I'll tell you how the story's told
I always wanted so much more
And way on down the road I caught a glimpse of the sunlight
Working on my favorite thing
Using every piece of me
Drinking, and smoking, and fucking, and making nothing

I didn't do it for money, I did it all for free
I did it all to fill the fucking hole inside of me

So far it's working out, everything's different now
So far na...

Think about what you know
Forget about what you're told
See how your story grows, and let it come from your own mind
Do all your favorite things
Cover it with all your dreams
Breathe it, and smoke it, and fuck it, and make it something

I didn't do it for money, I did it all for free
I did it all to fill the fucking hole inside of me

So far it's working out, everything's different now
So far na...
So far the mean machine hasn't got the best of me
So far na...

I'll tell you how the story's told
I always wanted so much more
And way on down the road I caught a glimpse of the sunlight

I didn't do it for money, I did it all for free
I did it all to fill the fucking hold inside of me

So far it's working out, everything's different now
So far na...
So far the mean machine hasn't got the best of me
So far na...
Na...

    General CommentI don't see the breakup meaning at all... but everyone interprets songs differently according to their experiences and such.

    To me it's about following your dreams. Doing what you love simply because you love it and not for any other reason like money or because other people approve.

    People who ignore their passions are empty inside and therefore have a "hole" inside them... doing what you love fills that hole. I believe the passion Buckcherry is singing about here is making music - but it pretty much fits any passion anyone else may have.

    It's also saying that doing what you love may get you nothing external right away or ever, but you continue to do it because of how it makes you feel on the inside. Like in "Working on my favorite thing using every piece of me
    Drinking, and smoking, and fucking, and making NOTHING"

    But if you pursue your passion fully, it can begin to reap external benefits by making it "something" that others can feel and see as well. Such as in "Do all your favorite things cover it with all your dreams
    Breathe it, and smoke it, and fuck it and make it SOMETHING"

    The line "So far the mean machine hasn't got the best of me" makes me think of the fame machine. He's saying he hasn't let the fame and money get to him or change who he is or what his passion is about - he's still doing what he loves for himself and everything else that has come with it now is just icing on the cake.

    Eh... That's what I get when I listen to this AMAZING song. :)
