Forgive me children, for I have sinned
I never asked you first
The way in which i wrote this song
The pen which scribed the verse
I never stopped to think of you
Each chord change, each refrain
Was done so with you not in mind
The farthest from my brain

[chorus]
Already gone and such a waste
Will you please put me in my place
It's not enough to just say the things you do
I hate music because of you

Being the connoisseur you are
With all you listen to
You know exactly what we've done wrong
And what we need to do
Come to you before each note is ever written down
Find out exactly what you want
Before we make a sound

[chorus]
Already gone and such a waste
Will you please put me in my place
It's not enough to just say the things you do
I hate music because of you

But I, in my arrogance, have gone my separate way
Music is dead and so are we
And soon will come the day
When every single stupid song and everything online
Will turn to dust, the moth, the rust, decay and wasted time

If I am honest, there's part of me that hopes it makes you sick
I hope you can not stand to hear it or bear the thought of it
I hope tomorrow you'll curse our name
You'll drill it in the dirt
I hope you'll not come back to us
I hope it always hurts
But at your feet I admit defeat
My work is now in your hands
If they want to hear stupid music so very bad
They can start themselves a band

[chorus]
Already gone and such a waste
Will you please put me in my place
It's not enough to just say the things you do
I hate music because of you

    General CommentSong is about us fans. Josh is admitting that we're not in his mind when he writes the music. Towards the end it sounds like they are expressing their frustration with the "bashers" that basically want them to make another album like "No sir, Nihilism is Not Practical"... So... I hate music because of you!!! So original... Best band in the world, with the best messages.
