"Be Careful What You Wish For" as written by Greg Bergdorf, Matty Lewis, Ali Tabatabaee, Ed Udhus and Ben Osmundson....
This is me, I've got a nasty sense of humor
And a case of high anxiety
If you please, I would rather be alone
Let the water running judge me

So I got my life together
But it's half of what it should be
So you think you can make it better?
You better help me, help me

Hang on but prepare, can't live up to you
Hold on, hold on
There's a part of me that can't escape my insecurities
Hang on, this is me

Can't you see I got a perfect explanation
But keep it deep inside of me?
Pardon me, but if you really want to know it
Then you better learn to judge me

So you've got you're life together
But you say you gotta have more
So you think I could make it better
Just be careful what you wish for

Hang on but prepare, can't live up to you
Hold on, hold on
There's a part of me that can't escape my insecurities
Hang on, this is me

Paper clip prediction
But these pictures are deceiving
'Cause their colors lost their place
And now they're dripping down and bleeding

And they're running and running away
Packed it up and leaving
And these dreams turn to nightmares
Like a promise with no meaning

So be careful what you wish for
You just might get it
If this is what you live for
You might as well forget it

You don't know what you're in for
This war will never end
Be careful what you wish for
You just might get it, get it, get it
You just might get it, get it, get it, so hold tight

Hang on but prepare, can't live up to you
Hold on, hold on
There's a part of me that can't escape my insecurities
Hang on, this is me
(Be careful what you wish for)

Hang on but prepare, can't live up to you
Hold on, hold on
(You just might get it)
There's still a part of me that can't escape my insecurities
Hang on, this is me
(Be careful what you wish for)

(Be careful what you wish for)
This is me
(Be careful what you wish for)
This is me

    General CommentGah I love this song =]

    anyways, I think it's about how he's finally got his life together, and it's different then how he's imagined it. and it's talking about how if you wanna be apart of his life that you should be aware that he's not gonna be as good, he's a little insecure, and maybe not exactly what he seems [?].

    oh, maybe it's about a friend he thinks is better then him? hmm, something along those lines

    eh, something along those lines.

    but this is by far my favorite song on the album
