"Pop - Punk Is Sooooo '05" as written by David Katz, Gabe Saporta and Sam Hollander....
If they could see you now
They would surely bow
In the honor of your presence dear
You've come

The cameras blind your eye
Here's the big surprise,
Flash never lasts
You've gotta pay your way back in

'Cause who you are, what you say
You're just a boy who's afraid of the dark
What you've got means shit to me
I'm not impressed by the dress
And the sex that you bought

Bright city lights
And big, big city nights
Here the hand that feeds you bites you dear
Fear not

Bless your troubled soul
But there's hope for all
For a bag of cash you can always
Turn your profits in

'Cause who you are, what you say
You're just a boy who's afraid of the dark
What you've got means shit to me
I'm not impressed by the dress that you bought

Who you are, what you say
You're just a boy who's afraid of the dark
What you've got means shit to me
I'm not impressed by the dress
And the sex that you bought

There's always room for something
When nothing's next to you
Hotshot, grab on to something
They're coming after you

Who you are, what you say
You're just a boy who's afraid of the dark
What you've got means shit to me

'Cause who you are, what you say
You're just a boy who's afraid of the dark
What you've got means shit to me
I'm not impressed by the dress
The sex

'Cause you are
Whoa oh oh oh oh [Repeat: x4]

    General CommentIt's profits.
    As in money.
    But oh my god this song is amazing.
    I think it's about how everything is about money and the song is saying that Cobra Starship doesn't care about that.
    But that's the literal meaning.
    I'm missing the deeper meaning, I just know it (:

    General Commentwell idk to me this song was more bashing all the pop-punk bands that emerged into the public recently, like fall out boy and panic! at the disco, and saying that people don't really care about them, that's the whole "what you got means shit to me" part... and also i think he's saying that these new bands think they're all that and a bag of chips and all punk or wvr when they're acutally pretty sucky and pop. idk that's just whay i think.

    General CommentAgreed with SaturdaysPassAway. It's to do with the money-hungry artists, who are only making music because they can make money from it. I wouldn't go so far as saying that it's about Fall Out Boy or Panic!, since they're on the same record label, but maybe it's about the followers of the whole "emo" trend.

    General Commentcobra wouldnt talk about panic! and fob theyr all friends on the same label i think its more about all the other bands that see what panic! and fob have done and are trying to copy and repeat it

THey are on the honda civic tour with fob and they have worked with joe and pete signed them and pat has been in a few of their videos so they wouldnt be like talking about them like that...just my opinion

    General Commenthey klawnsie8, i think your wrong b/c cobra starship wouldnt be bashing their fellow lable-mates and tour-mates. it doesnt make sense. the bands are all really good friends. and patrick from fob had a huge roll in producing this album, as he will the next. so for them to write songs about their lablemates doesnt make sense to me
