"Bulls in Brooklyn" as written by Michael Guy Chislett, Andy Mrotek, Michael Carden and William Beckett....
Some people have it and other people don't
You been making some threats got my name and address
I'm Breaking habits you don't want to know
Although I'm wearing my clothes I'm feeling cold and exposed yeah
Whoa oh oh oh

Don't say you miss me you probably don't
Well I been crossing some lines
That most folks wont yeah
Whoa whoa oh oh oh

Don't say you're more than this, or above e all this
With your blah blah blah and all your friends
Don't Say you think you know when you know you don't
Cause tonight the bulls are in Brooklyn and you're still at home
Whoa oh whoa oh oh oh

Some people have it and other people don't
Although the road we've paved still goes both ways
I'm breaking habits you don't want to know
Well I been crossing some lines that most folks wont
Don't say you're more than this, or above e all this
With your blah blah blah and all your friends
Don't Say you think you know when you know you don't
Cause tonight the bulls are in Brooklyn and you're still at home
Whoa whoa oh oh oh
Whoa whoa oh

Don't say you're more than this or above all this
With your blah blah blah and all your friends
Don't Say you think you know when you know you don't
Cause tonight the bulls are in Brooklyn and you're still at home
Don't say you're more than this or above all this
With your blah blah blah and all your friends
Don't Say you think you know when you know you don't
Cause tonight the bulls are in Brooklyn and you're still at home
Whoa whoa oh oh oh
Whoa whoa oh

Some people have it and other people don't

    General Commenti think it means that people think that they're superior, when they;re really just average and sterotypical, and that he takes a lot of risks and does things differently, and thinks that that makes him a lot better and braver.

    General Commentthis song is pretty good. i'm not sure whats it about.

    General CommentSome people have it
    And other people don't
    You've been making some threats
    Got my name and address
    [ making threats, like sending things to my house. phone calls. etc. ]
    I'm breaking habits
    You don't want to know
    Though I'm wearing my clothes
    Feeling cold and exposed
    [b reaking bad habits, they didn't even notice them because they were that bad. and he feels really exposed because that person puts them out there]
    Yeah, woah, woah, woah, woah
    Don't say you miss me
    You probably don't
    Well I've been crossing some lines
    That most folks won't
    [ they're trying to apologize, become friends, when they know they really don't want to. and he's been doing things to get away from them that most people wouldn't... ]
    Yeah, woah, woah, woah, woah

    Don't think you're more than this
    Or above all this
    With your blah, blah, blah
    And all your friends
    [ don't act like you're above all the gossip and the drama, when you know you're the one who caused most of it. with your blah blah blah, just keep talking and talking to all your friends about it.]
    Don't say you think you know
    When you know you don't
    Cause tonight the bulls are in Brooklyn
    And you're still at home
    [ don't pretend you know what im talking about, because you know you damnwell don't. ..the next part i have two things for it. (we're in Brooklyn, and you aren't near us, and you just talk and talk because they think they know what they're talking about. they aren't even there to witness any of the problems. also, maybe the bulls could be them, chicago bulls, they're from chicago...so maybe they're in a recording studio maybe? or just a chillout spot for the band.. and they're still at home, talking because they can't do anything else, therefore they aren't there to fight, or whatever.]

    Some people have it
    And other people don't
    Though the road that we paved
    Still goes both ways
    [ .. covered the first two lines. but the next two, even though we act like we know it, we make roads going both ways. one being that because we say we have it, we have it. but the other says we don't have it. and we eventually think that we don't have it.]
    I'm breaking habits
    You don't want to know
    Well I've been crossing some lines
    That most folks won't

    General Commentomfg, i just noticed my reply got cut off!!! R$%$#!%#!$ because i am nice and like to share, i'll do it over again x_x

    "Don't think you're more than this
    Or above all this
    With your blah, blah, blah
    And all your friends"

    Don't think you better or above everyone else. I guess it's like a confrontation and a reality check. Like a "i'm letting it all out now!" kind of thing.

    "Don't say you think you know
    When you know you don't"

    Don't pretend to know everything. Chances are, you don't.


    "Some people have it
    And other people don't
    Though the road that we paved
    Still goes both ways"

    Some people have it, some people don't, life (aka, the road) still goes whether you have it or don't. We all live the same, just with losses and gains.

    "Some people have it
    And other people don't"

    basically, self-explanatory. don't think you're better than someone just because you have somehting they don't have.

    :D thats what i thought.

    General Commentwilliam really does sing "blah, blah, blah" in the song... not "fly, fly, fly." I just read it in the booklet.
