They all warned me to stay out
Stolen, stupid, scarred, and proud
Don't try to warn me, dont try to warn me, dont try to warn me
I said, I make my own mistakes, dont care how long it takes
i make my own mistakes, again

but all i know is all ive got is

Frustration, Frustration
I hate this vacation
So give up (give up)
Give up (give up)
I've got to get away from here
Its killing me just thinking 'bout
Frustration, Frustration
I hate this vacation
So give up (give up)
Give up (give up)
I've got to get away from here
Its killing me just thinking 'bout it

They all warned me all warned me of heart cramp
cut your losses, while this turn (?)
dont try to warn me, dont try to warn me, dont try to warn me
i said, i make my own mistakes, you dont know what shes like, i make my own mistakes, again

but all i know is all ive got is

Frustration, Frustration
I hate this vacation
So give up (give up)
Give up (give up)
I've got to get away from here
Its killing me just thinking 'bout
Frustration, Frustration
I hate this vacation
So give up (give up)
Give up (give up)
I've got to get away from here
Its killing me just thinking 'bout it

They all warned me, to stay out
Stolen, stupid, scarred, and proud
dont try to warn me, dont try to warn me, dont try to warn me, dont try to warn me, dont try to warn, me

I've got

Frustration, Frustration
I hate this vacation
So give up (give up)
Give up (give up)
I've got to get away from here
Its killing me just thinking 'bout
Frustration, Frustration
I hate this vacation
So give up (give up)
Give up (give up)
I've got to get away from here
I've got to get away from here
Its killing me just thinking about this

    General Comment"Stolen" needs to be replaced with *stubborn.

    "While this turn" needs to be replaced with *while there's time.

    At the end of the song, before getting into the -Frustration, Frustration- part...
    "don't try warn, me
    I've got"

    Needs to be replaced with,
    * don't try to warn me about...

    General CommentI love this song from HHH's latest album Happiness Ltd. I like the part of the song where he really screams out
    "They all warned me, to stay out
    Stolen, stupid, scarred, and proud
    dont try to warn me, dont try to warn me, dont try to warn me, dont try to warn me, dont try to warn, me" near the end of the song.

    From what I'm getting, he's obviously been warned by friends that this girl he's seeing is someone he should really stay away from. However, he's ignoring what everyone's saying maybe because he believes the girl could be someone for him.

    It's frustration for him. I'm not sure about "hating this vacation." Maybe it's like when you're on vacation, you're supposed to be enjoying it, right? The girl is like his getaway from everyone, but he can't enjoy her because of the frustration given to him by everyone else.

    So now he just wants to get away from everyone and give up.

    General Commenti agree, i think this song is fantastic. my first impressions of this album was poor, but having listened to it more ive really gotten into it and really started to appreciate it.

    is it normal for people to instantly relate to songs like this?
    ive recently split from a long term relationship, and looking back i realise all the mistakes/how bad things got/the things i put up with that i shouldnt have.
    and, basically this album really sums up my feelings of late. the feeling that it was a mistake, and people did warn me, but its bloody hard moving regardless.
    i guess the way you relate to a song varies person to person doesnt it.
    im rambling, this album rocks, and i never say rocks.

    General CommentMusic is deep, metaphorical. In most songs, a girl can stand for a friend or a group of people, or even a problem. It is very straightforward. "They all warned me to stay out". I like lyrics about me, in a sense. There have been many occasions in which people have told me to stay away from certain things. But, "I make my own mistakes". And mostly, when I do attempt these feats, I often have to "Give Up" because of all the "Frustration". But this song is from the point of view of me after trying something big and failing, and being angry at the people who warned me to stay away from it and are now saying "told you so".
