On the tv I saw a man selling second chance
I thought what kind of sucker needs to buy self confidence.
I sit along on Friday night in boxer breifs and realize these guys are pointed straight at me

driving down the street I saw you with your other man
hes ugly and hes cheap but hes gotta have something
I don't know if you saw me but I saw the smile I used to see
this sigh is not relief it is good grief reality

stupid me
stupid me

down on Venice beach the psychic said things would go my way
so now I eat red meat and play the lotto everday
one thing I have learned is I can burn my bridges well
I cannot tell you how I do it but I'm going straight to hell

driving down the street I saw you with your other man
I'm comfy in my seat with a leathal handle in my hand
hes a fuckin' creep but he does have something
cuz now that hes got you hes got me downward spiraling

stupid me
stupid me
stupid me
stupid me

    General CommentI love the way the lyrics flow and how they are sung. Some of my favorite lyrics ever.

    I think the narrator has just recently broken up with a longterm girlfriend and now is filled with grief. He's also jealous that she's moved on, but he can't. He despises his girlfriends "other man"/new boyfriend, and thinks that she's lowered her standards by going out with that man. The song also deals with the narrator's actions in the period of time immiediately after the break-up.

    This is easily my favorite song by the Southland. However, I don't think it's perfect. I don't really like the three minutes of just music after two minutes of singing. The extra music without an singing kind of drags out the song. However, it does sound like a feeling of gloom that the narrator would be expirencing.
