I wrote this song, just to piss you off,
This is a war between my body and tongue,
You think you got it,
Come, show us what you've got.

I move away and watch you move through the walls,
If this is a game, then I'll sit out,
Everyone's a winner,
With a heart that small.

Keep me up, keep me up,
Oh I won't sleep tonight,
These rules were made so long,
And you know they're right.

I saw her coming like a storm,
I saw her come like I did before,
The weight of the world is on my shoulders,
But I just need someone else to hold it.

And I don't know why we're here,
Is it to love of love and fear,
Everyone's a winner,
With a heart that small.

Keep me up, keep me up,
Oh I won't sleep tonight,
These rules were made so long,
And you know they're right.

Give her up, give her up,
Cause you're gonna die tonight,
She'll lead you on, spit you out,
Just to prove that she is right.

And I know it was wrong to lie,
But I need you to keep us alive,
So if you and I collide,
Which one of us,
Which one of us,
Will survive?

Keep me up, keep me up,
Oh I won't sleep tonight,
These rules were made so long,
And you know they're right.

Give her up, give her up,
Cause you're gonna die tonight,
She'll lead you on, spit you out,
Just to prove that she is right.

Oh we know, we know it's right.
We know,
Know, we know it's right.
And it's right.

Know, we know it's right.
We know,
Know, we know it's right.
And it's right.

    General Commentthis song seems to be about a girl that hurts him extremely because he says "shell lead you on, spit you out" and "you're gonna die tonight". but somehow he doesnt want their relationship to end, although he tries to convince himself ("give her up"). but still he begs the girl to keep the relationship going ("But I need you to keep us alive") and in the end he says that both of them know its right.
    it seems as if josh was pissed off when he wrote this song and wants to get his revenge ("i wrote this song just to piss you off") although he knew that everything will be fine after the fight they seem to have had (which made him write that song i suppose). three cheers for sweet revenge haha!

    General CommentThis song is awesome. And I agree with the above.
    "And I know it was wrong to lie, But I need you to keep us alive" makes me think he lied and told her he loved her, hence the "but I need you to keep us alive" bit.
