And I've gone half deaf in one ear
And I'm bleeding out the other
I don't know where to go
Unless someone tells me what to do

I feel like I can't get this one thing off my chest
I've been told to keep a secret
What cannot be laid to rest
Torn away from the weak
And be sure to look toward the light
Say something meaningful
But don't make it sound too trite

Put the movie on side one
Sit back and have some fun
You might think that I'm a joker
But I'm not the only one

These are social graces like hello and goodbye
But we're busting at the seams to gossip and tell lies
Everyone's an actor and everyone's your friend
Looking out for your best interest to fuck you in the end

It's only a matter of time
Before they get you somehow
And they'll give some good reason
Why you should stay at home and rest

If you don't do drugs and fuck
Then what good are you to me?
Just go back to where you came from
You're no good to us around here
Please don't try to make this seem
Like something that it's not

Put the movie on side two
I have nothing left to do
You may think that I'm a joker
But I'm really just a fool

    General CommentI think its talking about how everyone can be a backstabber, and everyone is bassicly putting on a show of being your friend when their realy not. Kinda a paranoid song?
