"You (Don't) Know Me" as written by Jermaine Mauldin Dupri, Shawntae Harris and Bryan Michael Paul Cox....
If you're like me, then you know me
Oh, you know me, yeah, you know me.
If you're like me, then you know me
Oh, you know me, yea, you know me.

Paid rent 4 weeks delayed.
Fucked up in a 3-point turn
Can't give two shits these days.
Packed one more bag, no return
Love that song the deejays hate.
Fell asleep at the crack of dawn
Found the world in an awful state.
No one, no one to depend upon.
Fell asleep in the 5-1-0.
Woke up in the 8-1-8.
Nyquil at SFO, caffeine, caffeine at JFK.

If I'm the sum of all my friends,
Then all my friends are some of me
And if you're some way just like them
Then I am you to some degree.

If you're like me, then you know me
Oh, you know me, yeah, you know me.
If you're like me, then you know me
Oh, you know me, yeah, you know me.

Life kills rebels, death gets the rest
So don't deny me your company
Let's just drive fast, let's drive west.

Woke up in a bucket seat.
Moved back in with the folks.
Hung up after the beep. OD, OD'ed on Diet Cokes
Hit mute on the president.
Stayed home dressed to the nines
Machine stole my 25 cent.
Just can't, can't sing inside the lines
Sleepless in the 5-0-9.
Touched down in plus 4-4
Breakfast Sunset and Vine.
Supper off Place de la Concorde.

If I'm the sum of all my friends,
Then all my friends are some of me
And if you're some way just like them
Then I am you to some degree.

If you're like me, then you know me
Oh, you know me, yeah, you know me.
If you're like me, then you know me
Oh, you know me, yeah, you know me.

(You don't know me.)

    General Commenti know mark hoppus produced a couple songs on this cd
    was this one of them cuz the line
    'Sleepless in the 5-0-9. Touched down in plus 4-4'
    kinda a reference to his new band (+44)

    General Commentno this was produced by Tim Armstrong.
    +44 is London's calling code. not just the band.
    kinda a weird coincidence tho...

    this song sounds like fight club to me....
    i may be a little obsessive.
    but
    "Fell asleep in the 5-1-0. Woke up in the 8-1-8.
    Nyquil at SFO, caffeine, caffeine at JFK."
    like in fight club when he wakes up in different places on different planes.
    and
    "If I'm the sum of all my friends,
    then all my friends are some of me
    and if you're some way just like them
    then I am you to some degree."
    schizophrenia reference??
    iono im just saying what popped up into my head when i heard the song.

    General Commentthis song is so much fun. :D definitley one of my favorites from decomposer. and it's supposedly a dance hit in the uk or something, hahaha. to me it sounds like it's just a song about some sleazeball douchebag who lives with his parents and does nothing useful at all. and i'm assuming that all the references to places in this song apply to places in california.
