"Anything" as written by Brandon Charles Boyd, Michael Aaron Einziger and Jose Anthony Pasillas Ii....
I met the day
Feeling cheaper than usual
I guess you could say that I'm on sale
So take what you can while you can
Shop now intensive
I could snap at any moment
And I might feel more expensive
Oh

[Chorus]
I don't owe anything to you
I don't owe anything to you
You don't you know me half as well as you think you do
I don't owe anything
Anything to you

I met the mirror
The plastic hanging from my ear
And in that moment I went unfazed
So take what you can while you can
Less conscious only means more gold
I could snap at any moment and remember
I was not born to be sold

[Chorus: x2]

    General Commentdude,me to.
    but then again i dont think i have ever heard an incubus song i havent liked, ever.
    anyways i think its about not selling yourself to what people expect.
    maybe?

    General CommentThis song ring's a big bell in my life at the moment, after getting out of a long term relationship, the only one i've known since i was a kid, and one in which over the years i had taken myself for granted and let myself slowly been walked over more and more the whole time, untill i was ignoring the obvious signs of being cheated on, seeing myself as cheap.

    After finally snapping, and getting out of said relationship i am begining to realize that i have a lot more to offer, and don't (and never did) deserve to be walked over. i suddenly feel more "expensive" than ppl like my ex can afford, aka deserve.

    it's all there.

    General CommentIf you do a little digging, and look at the live albums that they have from way back, you'll notice that this song has been around since 2003/2004 ish, or, around the time of Crow. Before work really began on A Crow Left Of The Murder, incubus as a band was having legal battles with their current record company, which, incubus didn't think was paying them enough, so they sued. I believe the dispute was settled out of court (check the incubus Wikipedia article, as it explains it better).
    But because this song was written around then, I feel like it could be about that legal battle. He's feels "cheaper than usual" because the company isn't making him feel like all his work is worth anything. And the line about less conscious only meaning more gold (money), seems to tie in a lot more to my interpretation.
