Listen up cause this is not the end
You're the last thing that crossed my mind
Relationships are based on trust
Well I guess this one was based on lies

Based on lies
Based on lies
Based on lies

Listen up to the ones you trust
Just a few by your side (Your side)
Give in, everything's going to be alright
(Here we go the ones who make time)
Now it's time for me to go
I know, You know, The fights are getting old

This is the last chance
I have to say to you
So sorry but I have to go
Wash my hands of you

You say you will never change
I say, That's too bad
I'm sorry, For all the things, That you and I (Could have had)
But it's your fault, All the stupid things
That you and I have done and said
The lies, The cries, It's no wonder that you were dead

This is the last chance
I have to say to you
So sorry but I have to go
Wash my hands of you

Your honesty
Is killing me
The page I read
The word that said that you still love me
You lied to me
And you don't see
The things you've said
And now you're dead
And that's alright by me

This is the last chance
I have to say to you
So sorry but I have to go
Wash my hands of you

Listen Up 'cause this is not the end!

    Song Meaningto me.. this definitely sounds like its about max green.


    Listen up to the ones you trust
    Just a few by your side (Your side)
    Give in, everything's going to be alright
    (Here we go the ones who make time)
    [he said in an interview that he tought they had his back, but he was obviously wrong & that he made new friends and people he trusts]


    but thats just my opinion i suppose(:

    General CommentI definitely don't think this is about some girl...and that's it's obviously about Max Green.
    Esp. here:

    Listen up to the ones you trust

    I think this is one of Ronnie's hidden, analytical, meanings that let's out just enough to show what he's really talking about but hides enough to not say it blatantly. So it sounds like it's about a girl..but really it's not.

    Just my take on it though, could be very well wrong and it could be about a cheater. (but when has Ronnie ever been that blunt?)

    General CommentIts not about max. i think it got released because it fit the situation so well. but i saw in an interview (it was months ago so i can't cite)but ronnie said it was written in an old band and performed and that particular recording was before they made etf. if you compare it to the new songs or even from old etf he does sound young in it. but it does fit perfectly

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is how Ronnie is trying to help out a girl who he went out with. She spread rumors about him and fed him lies and he wants her to stop doing that for her own good.

    Listen up cause this is not the end, (Wants her to know she can stop her bad habit of lying)
    You're the last thing that crossed my mind.
    Relationships are based on trust,
    Well I guess this one was based on lies, based on lies, based on lies, based on lies. (These lines are about how, in the past, he was lied to and cheated on by this girl, but now, after they break up, she is no longer in his memory)

    Listen up to the ones you trust,
    Just a few by your side (Your side),
    Give in, everything's gunna be alright. (Here he's saying don't lie to your friends as you did to me and be truthful to the few friends you have left)[You being his ex]
    (Here we go the ones who make time),
    Now it's time for me to go,
    I know, You know, The fights are getting old. (It's time for him to leave the constant fighting in this relationship and move on in his life)

    This is the last chance I, have to say to you,
    So sorry but I have to go,
    Wash my hands of you. (In the chorus Ronnie is saying that it's not too late for his ex to change her bad traits, but it is too late for them two to work anything out and get back together)

    You say you will never change,
    I say, That's too bad, (He's saying that she better change soon or else nobody will like/respect her)
    I'm sorry, For all the things, That you and I (Could have had).
    But it's your fault, All the stupid things,
    That you and I have done and said,
    The lies, The cries, It's no wonder that you are dead. (He's saying the lies she told led to the relationships downfall and that they could've had such a nice relationship if she didn't screw it up, but now since the relationships over, she's dead in Ronnie's mind)

    This is the last chance I, have to say to you,
    So sorry but I have to go,
    Wash my hands of you.

    Your honesty is killing me,
    The page I read the word that said that you still love me. (This is about how all the "I love you's" she said were fake)
    You lied to me and you don't see,
    The things you've said and now you're dead and that's alright by me. (This is saying that this girl is non existent to him now and that she'll be non existent to all other guys if she keeps up her bad habit)

    This is the last chance I, have to say to you,
    So sorry but I have to go,
    Wash my hands of you.

    Listen Up 'cause this is not the end! (Basically he's telling her to stop lying, one final time, so she doesn't ruin her life)
