"Miss Sobriety" as written by and Shaant Timothy/czum Hacikyan....
[Chorus: ]
Hey Miss Sobriety
Do you remember me
Or how to say my name?
Do you remember when
We were friends
All the way back then?

You crushed our confidence
But you never taught it how to stay
And if I learnt one thing
It's that you always have a price to pay
I've learnt one man's trash
Is another man's treasure

[Chorus: ]

Hey hey hey Miss Confidence
Do you remember when you kept me safe
Are my eyes deceiving
Are you believing
Have I made you lose your faith?
One man's pain
(one man's pain)
Is another man's pleasure
(is another man's pleasure)

[Chorus: ]

One man's trash
Is another man's treasure
(don't you wonder why I even loved her?)
One man's pain
Is another man's pleasure

I never thought I'd get so low
Never thought that I could get so low
This is as far as I will go
I never thought I'd get so low
When I start thinking it's the bottom, I know
I never thought I'd get so low
Direct me which way I should go
(One man's trash
Is another man's treasure)

[Chorus: ]


One man's trash
Is another man's treasure
(don't you wonder why I even loved her?)
One man's pain
Is another man's pleasure
(I need to find a way to do this over)
One man's trash
Is another man's treasure
(I should have known that she could be my saviour)
One man's pain
Is another man's pleasure

I never thought I'd get so low
Never thought that I could get so low
Well I never thought I'd get so low
Never thought that I could get so low
Well I never thought id get so low
Never thought that I could get so low

    General Commentit seems more likely to me that the song is about a girlfriend who was actually the one with the drinking problem. And calling her "Miss Sobriety" may be sarcasm. He asks if she remembers how to say his name. He also says,

    "one man's trash is another man's treasure
    (don't you wonder why i even loved her)"

    which might be talking about how to others she was looked at as trash. and people wondered why he was with her. then the "i never thought that i could get so low" might be him realizing that he's settling for a girl who drinks too much and isn't worth his time. he thinks he can do alot better than her.

    or it may be about a girl he took advantage of who was drunk, and feeling regret about what he did. that may be another possibility.

    General Commentit's about how he used to not drink.
    how he remembers staying sober and if sobriety remembers him (now that he's drinking again) since it's been awhile, etc...

    General Commentright, im basically just gonna type exactly what it says in kerrang...it doesnt make much sense to me cos it conflicts with a lot of things he's said. amazing song, though.

    ALCOHOLISM

    "This is something that I confronted on a song called Miss Sobriety. It opens with the lines 'Hey Miss Sobriety, do you remember me? Do you remember when we were friends?'. Having not drank at all in high school I pretty much dove in head first, and I've been drinking ever since. It's a dangerous game sometimes. You can feel pretty low, and you have to be really careful when trying to find your limit because drinking can be a very easy path to take. It's something I've managed to control, but I had to learn a few lessons along the way."

    General Commentim probably way off but it seems like the songs talking about this guys best friend from when they were younger (you know how when your young you claim you wont smoke ,drink or have sex ever) and as they grew up they grew apart she into the party scene and him in to the regular student life. And gradually over the years he falls in love with her even though she has a reputation and all that jazz.and he feels like an idiot cause hes still in love with her even though shes changed so much and dosent care about him.

    i know it dosent have anything to do with the band it self but the situation just appeard in my head once i heard the song

    great song makes me happy when i hear it ironically enough

    General Comment... I swear this song has to be about Jac Vanek.

    Well, atleast, that's the theory and my friend came up with. (:
