We welcome you to the second chapter
Thanks for turning the other page
We acknowledge you as the only reason
For the progress that we've made
You're a constant reminder
We came, we saw, we conquered
Everything has come so far
From where we were before
Well keep this short and sweet so I'll
Get to the point

My friends come first it's the bottom line
My friends come first it's the bottom line
My friends come first it's the bottom line
My friends come first it's the bottom line

That's the bottom line
Here's to the future, never getting older
When the tables do turn, where will you be?

Pick up your feet

    My InterpretationSo I think this song is about their fans so here it goes:

    We welcome you to the second chapter
    Thanks for turning the other page
    We acknowledge you as the only reason for the progress that we've made

    - Basically, ADTR toured for a long time before even releasing And Their Name Was Treason and FTWHH, to help gain a fanbase. Their fanbase grew considerably when they released And Their Name.. so when they released this album, they put out this song as a kinda of a dedication to the people who go them where they were.

    You're a constant reminder we came
    we came
    we saw
    we conquered

    - They're basically saying after all the shows, and all the hard work, they got what they deserved.

    Everything has come so far from where we were before
    We'd like to keep this short and sweet so I'LL GET TO THE POINT!

    - Saying that they've grown musically and gained popularity and that they're proud.

    MY FRIENDS COME FIRST, THAT'S THE BOTTOM LINE!
    Here's to the future, never getting older
    When the tables do turn where will you be?
    PICK UP YOUR FEET!

    -This is the part that interests me the most. What I think this paragraph means is that they're looking forward (Hence the name 'Fast Forward To 2012', maybe?)and that never give in to what other people think. Pretty much "believe in yourself and fuck what others think' kind of lyrics. "When the tables do turn where will you be?" might mean what will you be in the future? I don't know.

    This is just my interruption of this song. It's probably completely wrong. :3

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship where the chick expected him to choose her over his friends, and was most likely being persistent.


    =/


    whether thats the meaning or not, it's a great song. ADTR is great live, too.

    General CommentI thought this was just a straightforward song about ADTR thanking us, their fans, because they'd be nothing without us.

    I can sort of see where a girl might come into play in the lyrics, but I think you're looking into it too much.
