"Second Floor" as written by John Feldmann and Eric Nally....
Soon as they fall asleep I'll be out of here
I'll put on my shoes and I'll sneak to the window
Brush the bird shit off the ledge
And shimmy shimmy off, shimmy shimmy

Sitting there looking down I prepare myself
Return to where I belong and betterfy myself
I hold my breath and close my eyes
I shimmy shimmy off, shimmy shimmy

As I fall to the lonely world below (fall down fall down)
In midair floating there I declare

So long to the second floor
It's been fun but I don't belong
Up there with the industry or
Up there with you wolves

Now I'm down here with the lower class
Down here with the idiots yeah
I feel better now
I said I feel better now
So long to the second floor

Soon as I get back home I find the door was locked
Pretend I'm a g.i. joe and sneak around the house
I hear the dogs they're all freaking out
I shimmy shimmy in, shimmy shimmy

As I fall to the lonely world below (fall down fall down)
In midair floating there I declare

So long to the second floor
It's been fun but I don't belong
Up there with the industry
Up there with you wolves

Now I'm down here with the lower class
Down here with the idiots yeah
I feel better now
I said I feel better now
So long to the second floor

I'm not ready, I'm not ready no
I'm not ready to spend the night alone
I'm not ready, I'm not ready no
I'm not ready to spend the night alone

I'm not ready, I'm not ready no
I'm not ready to spend the night alone
I'm not ready, I'm not ready no
I'm not ready, I'm not ready

So long to the second floor
It's been fun but I don't belong
Up there with the industry
Up there with you wolves

Down here with the lower class
Down here with the idiots yeah
I feel better now
I said I feel better now
So long to the second floor

    Song MeaningEric said in an interview about this song

    "when i was about 7 or 8 i had my first overnight at my friends zacks house. he lived down the street from my mom's. for some reason i was really uneasy about the whole idea of spending the night away from my mom. so when his mom put us to bed i waited until everyone was asleep and i jumped out of their second story window and ran back home. sometimes even though i'm older, my career feels like it's too much for me and i feel like i want to jump out of the window and run home to my mom. "

    So from that I think the second floor refers to fame and fortune and all the things being in a popular band would lead to and he's saying he'd much prefer to be down here with the " poor " or the fans.
