"Biters Block" as written by Sam Hollander, David Katz, Disashi Lumumba-kasongo, Travis Mccoy and Matthew Mcginley....
This is not novelty
This is nothing delicate
This the result of your Google search for something relevant
Stake claim immediately
'Cause hot products cool down
At which point they'll flock to new sounds
Take fame intravenously
But when leisure turns to habit
I'll be sure to leave the scene you started staging
This is nothing fraudulent
This is that joy shot itchy feeling lingering behind your target audience
You got them all convinced, but we ain't buying it, buddy
Demand for lies is high, and you're supplying it
Truth is brutal; it consumes you if you let it
Type that in your little away message and set it

[Chorus]
Keep singing songs
That I could write in my sleep
It's like I'm counting sheep
Keep singing songs
Man, you are a lead but trouble not to be
Keep singing songs
Just follow the leader with your blah, blah, blah
Keep singing songs
That I could write in my sleep
It's like I'm counting sheep

And this is not a fashion statement, it's delegate intuition
Far beyond your bed wetter kindergarten compositions
This is a part of me
How can you sleep at night when what you don't write you write half heartedly?
Go join the army
And be the best you can be
Give a new meaning to blowing up over seas, please!
We kick those boys down when nobody would let us in
And give you that proverbial taste of your own medicine
We took your formula and relabeled it
And sat patiently and giggled when you drank it
Street voice and street cred run just about the same
Pop bottles and drop names
And you'll dismiss it 'cause it ain't what ya used to
But who the fuck died and made you king cobra?

[Chorus]

Wow, congratulations on your new purchase
I heard you bought a crib on biters block
Downtown plagiarism's paradise
You're not a movement, you're purely amusement
The poster boy for Xerox and a role model for parasites
You serve no purpose, you're purely decorative
And bore us to death with your auditory sedatives
No, we don't sleep
And hog tie your runaway bride with cold feet
We built this city on lock and load logic
And burned it down the same night
So go ahead and put your tears on ice, baby
I think we got a winner
And kiss your crucifix; your boy's a certified sinner

[Chorus]

    General CommentI really want to know who/what this song is directed too. It's a little angsty, at least for normal Gym Class Heroes songs.

    Someone find out!

    General CommentI personally thought this song was about Fall Out Boy, but I have little evidence. The only line that made me think that was when he said to put your tears on ice. I might be wrong.

    General Commentread these lyrics...then read gym class heroes.

    Are we growing up or just going down
    It's just a matter of time until we're all found out
    Take our tears and put them on ice
    I swear I'd burn this city down to show you the light

    We're the therapists pumping through your speakers
    Delivering just what you need
    We're well read and poised
    We're the best boys
    We're the chemists who've found the formula
    To make your heart swell and burst
    No matter what they say, don't believe a word

    Cause I'll keep singing this lie if you'll keep believing it

    We're traveled like gypsies
    Only with worse luck and far less gold
    We're the kids you used to love
    But then we grew old
    We're the lifers here til the bitter end
    Condemned from the start
    Ashamed of the way
    The songs and the words own the beating of our hearts

    Are we growing up or just going down
    It’s just a matter of time until we’re all found out
    take our tears and put them on ice
    I’d burn this city down to show you the light
    There’s a drug in the thermostat to warm the room up
    And another around to help us bend your trust
    I’ve got a sunset in my veins
    And I need to take a pill to make this town feel okay

    The best part of "Believe" is the "Lie,"
    I hope you sing along and you steal a line
    I need to keep you like this in my mind
    So give in or just give up

    General Comment"This is that joy shot itchy feeling lingering behind your target audience"
    should be
    "This is that sure shot itchy feeling lingering behind your target audience"

    "It’s like I’m counting sheep"
    should be
    "It’s like a copy sheet"

    "And this is not a fashion statement, its delegate intuition"
    should be
    "And this is not a fashion statement, its eligant intuition"

    "How can you sleep at night when what you don't write you write half heartedly"
    should be
    "How can you sleep at night when what you don't bite you write half heartedly"

    at least that's how it sounds to me and please note I'm not trying to bring you down cause there are still a few I'm not sure what the heck is being said!

    General Commentim almost positive that this song is directed at all of the lame one-hit wonder rappers that have made millions writing songs that a 8 year old with a bad mouth could write.
