Jon Mess:

Someone please, please write a script that's made for me,
That appeals to the people listening to this CD.
I gotta wish, I gotta wish!
That all of this was something special...

I need a drink, I need a pill.
No, wait I was over two years sober,
But this guy he said that I was on drugs.
I should give that money to that bitch,
Or I could just get a real fucking job!

I am a prick, look at me go,
I can get lucky playing some shows, I'm a bitch!
Imma go get some new expensive shit!
Oh man I hurt, emotions they suck,
I'll just tell people I don't give a fuck about that shit!

Ain't nobody fucking with me MAN!!!
Ain't nobody fucking with ME!!!

Rancid is the sound of my voice
Croaking it's drama across
An orchestra of friendly faces
Singing along with dying concern.

Rancid is the sound of my voice
Croaking it's drama across
An orchestra of friendly faces
Singing along with their dying concern to my bullshit.

Where did our honor go? I think I know...
We have all been fucking each other
In bathrooms at parties.
Where did my money go? I spent it on blow,
You know that I...
Fucked all my homies hos!

Where did our morals go? I left them in Cabo...
My parents can pay for the abortion you know?
Who has a plan? We hold out our hands
In hope for a free ride...
To successful endeavors!

The weak are the liars, the strong think too much...
I am too cynical to say I don't give a fuck.
The weak are the liars, the strong think too much...
I am too cynical to say I don't give a fuck.
I need money, I need clothes, I need women, I need blow!

SOMETHING IS VERY FUCKING WRONG!!!
Resting your head on your best friend sister's shoulder.
Your mother's job is to fuck all your neighbors,
Bodies thrusting to the beat of our shame…

Trying to explode! (I am Insane!)
I am a fallacy! (A sign above...)
As you see… (But it still meant to...)
My heart is beating. (Dream or drink...)
Empty! (But fucking up!)
I am so… (In the end...)
I am so sick! (Losing our sight.)
I’m trying to live. (For now...)
Burning my body (What should we do now?)
Give me… (Where’s our triumph?)
Poison to drink! (...)
With anger in my mouth... (Falling...)
Live! (Fall!)

Where did our honor go? I think I know...
We have all been fucking each other
In bathrooms at parties.
Where did my money go? I spent it on blow,
you know that I...
Fucked all my homies hos!

Where did our morals go? I left them in cabo...
My parents can pay for the abortion you know!
Who has a plan? We hold out our hands
In hope for a free ride...
To successful endeavors!

GIVE MY REGARDS TO ALL YOU SHADY FUCKS!
THORN IN MY FUCKING SIDE!
LOYALTY, HONESTY, TRUST, RESPECT, HUMILITY, SINCERITY!
WE ARE ALL SO FULL OF FUCKING SHIT!!!
WE ARE ALL SO FULL OF FUCKING SHIT!!!

Kurt Travis:

Oh girl all that you need my love.
You are everything girl,
No one turns you on.
Look with sound...
I see you coming true
It's sweeping for you and me,
For you and me with no echo sound.

Uneasy hearts weigh the most...
Oh, uneasy hearts they weigh the most!
Uneasy hearts weigh the most...
Oh, uneasy hearts they weigh the most!

Maybe I can find a place for you,
With all the things you do.
I have no clue,
Watching you...

Lately I have been hoping to...
Think of what to say,
Why'd they go far away?

Uneasy hearts weigh the most...
Oh, uneasy hearts they weigh the most!
Uneasy hearts weigh the most...
Oh, uneasy hearts they weigh the most!

    General Commentgreat song

    im guessing most of the lyrics are kind of self-explanatory, but knowing dgd, there might be something else to it.

    im not real sure about kurts part, i love it though. its so odd but so catchy.


    good job on the lyrics for the most part, way better than anything i would attempt

    General CommentHere is what I was able to decipher... I hope someone can fill in what I was not able to understand.

    So i (freeze?)
    That time is meant, is made for me
    How it feels to people (less than sinking?)
    I got a wish, i got a wish
    That all of this was something special
    I hear your (?), I need a pill
    You weigh yourself until your sober
    This guy he said that i was a drunk
    (....?)body to the bitch
    Or i could just get a real fucking job
    I am a prick look at me go,
    I could get lucky playing some shows, Im a bitch
    Imma go get some new expensive shit
    Oh man i hurt, emotions they suck
    Oh just some people,
    I don't give a fuck 'bout that shit
    Ain't nobody fucking with me, man
    Ain't nobody fucking with me
    Listen as the sound of my voice,
    Croaking this drama across an orchestra of friendly faces
    Take a good look for dying concern
    Till my pulse (sinks?)
    Where did all my money go?
    I think I know,
    We're only fucking each other in bathrooms and parties
    Where did all my money go, I spent it all on blow
    You know that I fucked all my homies ho's
    Where did our morals go?
    I left them in (cabo?)
    My parents can pay for the abortion, you know?
    Who has a plan?
    We hold down our hands
    In hope for a free ride, unsuccessful endeavors (just successful endeavors?)
    The weight of the liars, is something too much
    I am to cynical to say i don't give a fuck
    The weight of the liars, is something too much
    I am too cynical to say I don't give a fuck
    I need money, i need clothes, I need women, I need blow!
    Something is very fucking wrong!!!
    Resting your head on your best friends sisters shoulder
    Your mothers job is to fuck all your neighbors
    Bodies thrusting, to the beat of our shame
    (screaming in the background)
    Where did all my money go?
    I think I know
    We're only fucking each other in bathrooms and parties
    Where did all my money go?
    I spent it all on blow
    You know that I fucked all my homies hoes
    Where did all my morals go?
    I left them in (cabo?)
    My parents can pay for the abortion, you know
    Who has a plan?
    We hold down our hands
    In hope for a free ride, unsuccessful endeavors (just successful endeavors?)
    Give my regard to all you shady fucks
    Thorn in my fucking side
    Loyalty, Honesty, Trust, Respect, Humility, Sincerity
    We are all so full of fucking shit
    We are all so full of fucking shit

    I know that every fucking person thinks that every song on the new album is about Jonny, but that is not true. This IS the only song about Jonny. I don't want any dispute here. This was John Mess' perspective on Jonny, I take it, I'm not sure, maybe the whole band. But I know for a fact that this is directed towards Jonny and no other song is.

    General CommentHoly CRAP they swear alot in this song.
    I mean, the only song they said fuck in before was Lemon Meringue Tie, I'm pretty sure.
    Awesome lyrics, like every other song by this amazing band.

    General Commenthere's what I got:

    Someone please!
    Let's write a script that's made for me
    That makes you people undertake me
    I've got a wish, I've got a wish
    That all of this was something special
    I need a drink, I need a pill
    No way I'll stop until you're sober
    She's already said that I was on drugs,
    Let's give somebody to the bitch.

    Or I could just get a real fucking job!

    I am a prick look at me go, I could get lucky finding success, Im a bitch!
    Imma go get some new expensive shit!
    All that I hurt, emotions they suck, I'll just tell people
    I don't give a fuck bout that shit!

    Ain't nobody fucking with me, man!
    Ain't nobody fucking with me.

    Listen as the sound of my voice, cloaking it's drama across an orchestra of friendly faces
    singing along their dying concern, to my whole shame.

    Where did our money go? I think I know,
    We're always fucking each other in bathrooms at parties,
    Where did my money go, I spent it on blow
    You know that I, fucked all my homies ho's
    Where did our morals go? I looked at the cover
    My parents can pay for the abortion, you know?
    Who has a plan? we hold out our hands
    And hope for a free ride to successful endeavors
    Bring out the pliers something to bite i am too cynical to say I don't give a fuck

    I need money. I need clothes. I need women. I need blow.
    Something is very fucking wrong!

    Resting your head on your best friends sisters shoulder
    Your mother's job is to fuck all your neighbors
    Bodies thrusting to the beat of my shame
    (background screaming)

    Where did our money go? I think I know,
    We're always fucking each other in bathrooms at parties,
    Where did my money go, I spent it on blow
    You know that I, fucked all my homies ho's
    where did our morals go? I looked at the cover
    My parents can pay for the abortion, you know?
    who has a plan? we hold out our hands
    I hope for a free ride to successful endeavors

    Give my regards to all you shitting fucks that weren't on my fucking side!

    We are all so full of fucking Shit!!
