"Far Behind" as written by and Michael Ness....
With friends like you, who needs enemies?
You ain't right, you ain't never gonna be
You're out of the car; I'm afraid you've been declined
You shake my hand while you're pissing on my leg
I'm cuttin' you loose; I don't need this misery
Your soul is toxic, you ain't no friend of mine

You talk real trash when I'm not around
To build yourself up, you gotta to tear me down
You'll have to excuse me; I've got better things to do
You smile through your teeth, you talk out your neck
Every chance you get you're gonna stab my back
Your time's run out; I've got nothing left for you

[Chorus:]
I'm leaving you far behind
I'm leaving you far behind
Stop wasting all of my time
I'm leaving you far behind

So I'm pulling out the weeds, I'm taking stock
You can talk the talk, but can't walk the walk
Your narcissistic ways have gotten the best of you
So I'm leaving you to sink in all your glory
For you and me it's the end of the story
Get out of my way; I've got better things to do

[Chorus x 3]

With friends like you, who needs enemies?
It means you ain't right, you ain't never going...
Your soul is toxic, you ain't no friend of mine

    General CommentThanks for correcting the abysmally wrong lyrics.
    One of the best put-down songs ever.

    General CommentWhen I saw Social D back in July, Mike prefaced "Far Behind" by saying "This is a song about being friends with an asshole," so I think Nicholas is pretty close there :)

    General Commenti'm not even going to comment on the abysmal attempt at lyrics that was submitted, but the only line i have to correct for flesh99 is "you're out of the car" should be "you're another call". awesome song. i dedicate it to a certain "friend" of mine, or so i thought.

    General CommentThis is definitely not what's on the Greatest Hits.
    I don't remember what the live mp3 version that was floating around was like.

    General CommentHow about some correct lyrics?

    With friends like you, who needs enemies?
    You ain't right, you ain't never gonna be
    You're out of the car, I'm afraid you've been declined.
    You shake my hand, while you're pissing on my leg
    I'm cutting you loose, I don't need this misery
    Your soul is toxic, you ain't no friend of mine. NO!!!

    You talk real trash, when I'm not around
    To build yourself up, you gotta tear me down.
    You'll have to excuse me, I got better things to do
    You smile through your teeth, you talk out you're neck
    Every chance you get, you're going to stab my back
    Your time's run out, I've got nothing left for you.

    [Chorus:]
    I'm leaving you far behind
    I'm leaving you far behind
    Stop wasting all, all my time
    I'm leaving you far behind, Yeah!!!

    So I'm pulling out the weeds, I'm taking stock
    You can talk the talk, but can't walk the walk
    Your narcissistic ways have gotten the best of you
    So I'm leaving you to sink in all your glory
    For you and me it's the end of the story
    Get out of my way, I've got better things to do.

    [Chorus x3]

    With friends like you, who needs enemies?
    You ain't right, you ain't never going to be
    Your soul is toxic, you ain't no friend of mine.

    General CommentYeah thats the right one. I thinkhe may be pissed at one of te descendants in this song. seeing how the lead guitar riff is VERY similar to the lead in Get The Time. Hard to tell though.

    General CommentThis song seems like it's about a guy just trying to live his life, made friends with a guy, and the guy turned out to be a total idiot, full of himself and was always putting others down.

    General CommentMike Ness said that this song is about someone pretending to be your friend, and when they turn their back, they "sing a different tune".
    [By the way, next time you wanna post lyrics, make sure they're right....]
