"Guys Like You Make Us Look Bad" as written by and Craig Edward/frisby Mabbitt....
You scream don't look, you scream don't touch
What have they done? What have I not?
And every time I think about your voice I
Start to tremble, and my throats aching
And anytime you need a shoulder, I'm right here
You've just gotta find a way.

She sits alone, tries to adjust
She cries please let me go I won't tell anyone
You scream don't look, please god don't touch

Oh God please help us, get her out of this

    General Commentok this is my best guess..... ok we all know its about rape right?.....well the song is called guys like u make us look bad.....in other words, the good guys look bad because of the bad guys.....thats why it says" what have they done?"....then it says" what have i not?"...in more other words (u can trust me).... thats also why it says, "And anytime you need a shoulder, I’m right here
    You’ve just gotta find a way."....a way to make it through....for her not to give up on life....and in the end of the song it says, "Oh god please help us, get her out of this "....in other words again, (for god to help us good guys to help those who are in pain from being raped/hurt).... for us to be by there side in time of need when crazy things like that happen to them and for them to trust us good guys....but how can a woman who just got raped by a man trust man?....see, this is what i feel it means peeps

    General Commentum the lyrics are "she sits alone,TRIES TO ADJUST"
    not "tied to a chair"

    here i found this from an interview:

    Do you always conciously try to make your song lyrics reflective of that?

    Craig: It varies. Sometimes we want to be very specific in our lyrics, other times, we don't. A song like "Guys Like You Make Us Look Bad" is pretty much about rape. It's about women, rape and trying to overcome it.

    so dont tell me im an idiot.
