"Game of Diamonds" as written by and Bradford Cox....
No one ever talked to me
Now I've forgotten how to speak
A problem with my chemistry
Now I cant sleep and I won't, eat
As soft as a strangers hand
I counted every grain of sand
I walked every inch of land, I know

So strong, I know
So strong, I know
So strong, I know
So strong, I know

No one ever walked with me
I got so tired on my feet
I lay drunk on the bowery
Time never meant much to me
As soft as a strangers hand
I counted every grain of sand
I walked every inch of land, I know

So strong, I know
So strong, I know
So strong, I know
So strong, I know
So strong, I know
So strong, I know
So strong, I know
So strong, I know
So strong, I know

    General Commentgreat song

    seems to be about some of his issues.
    the way he says "a problem w/ my chemistry" reminds me off how psychiatrists blame everything on brain chemistry rather than other problems/solutions

    and then the 'i know, so strong' reminds me of how people will keep telling you how strong you are for making it through/putting up with very difficult times, but it's not like you have any other alternative (other than suicide of course.) So those compliments tend to lose meaning.

    Song MeaningI think the song has to do with being alone in school and with no friends, and all the depression that comes with it. Like many, he internalizes his problems, "No one ever talked to me, Now I've forgotten how to speak, A problem with my chemistry, Now I can't sleep and I won't eat" "No one ever walked with me, I got so tired on my feet". Also what cdonianknight said with "I know, so strong" with the few people you talk to, always telling you to wait out the bad and it'll get better soon, it being simple and weak and blanket advice.
