"Being From Jersey Means Never Having To Say You're Sorry" as written by and Gabe Saporta....
Success has it's price
And can you hear me now?
That I'm dumbing myself down
Am I filling you with doubt?
That I am who you thought
Cause I know it's just a game
But I'm playing it to win
I won't forget from where I came
But it's time to take over, oh yeah

And can you hear me now?
Someone save me from this hell
Of my own voice can't you tell
That I sound like I'm dying, oh yeah

I'm tired of waiting, yeah I'm tired of waiting now
I'm tired of being a poor cliche and misunderstood
I'm tired of waiting, yeah I'm tired of waiting
This tune it can fade in cause I can't think anymore.

    General Commentthis song is way under-rated, way way way.
    its so fucking amazing, whats wrong with you people??

    he just wants to do it to have fun, he doesn't care if you like it or not.
    this song is saying "im doing this to win, im not doing it for you, or you, or you, but me." He knows what he wants, and its not what he's got, so he is gonna do whatever it takes to get it, he's tired of waiting for it to fall on his lap.....
    at least thats what i think, probably wrong but i dont care.

    and you guys are wrong, he's voice is perfect for what this song is about, fuck you, he's voice is perfect for any song he writes, he wrote it, he knows how he wants it to sound, not you.

    General Commentreally awkward opener for the album. it's a nice acoustic/a cappella song but it seems out of place? i think it would have been a better ending.

    General CommentI love this song... it's one of the most vulnerable-sounding songs on the album and I like that.

    General CommentI don't really like this song that much
    lyrically, I think it's good
    but his voice doesn't really work with it
    but I liked it as the opener
    its unique

    General Commentyea I think this song is great lyrically
    i think it means that Gabe is maybe tired of writing songs so they "sound good", and he rather just have fun with his music and "Success has it's price" but he's willing to just have fun rather than be truly "successful"?
    I'm not sure I'm taking a shot at it =]

    General Commenti like it...alot actually. i think its kinda sweet in a way as he opens up. i like the line 'Am I filling you with doubt?' because it could mean that since this is an opener you may think that the rest of the songs are like this. plus the last line is brilliant 'This tune it can fade in cause I can't think anymore.'
