"Good Neighbor" as written by and Benjamin Allen Weinman Gregory John Puciato....
So there you are
Until the dawn
Still whistling that same old song
Happy all the time
Now she gives the shoulder
Look into her eye
You cannot control her
Look into her eye
You cannot control her

Smile and nod your head
You are the cause of it
This is not your dream
This is not your dream

Hey there you fucking bum
Look what you have become
No secrets without walls
A social free for all
Come on and get it all for free
Just hit that fucking key
Your long term memory
Pushed aside
I'm not evaporating
Pushed aside
Let them sit gorged and frozen
Pushed aside
In their immediacy
Suicide by way of information

So there you are
Until the dawn
So there you are
Until the dawn
Suicide by way of
Suicide by way of
Suicide by way of
Information

    My InterpretationI interpret this song to be about certain aspects of the internet.

    "Hey there you fucking bum, look what you have become
    No secrets without walls
    A social free-for-all"

    Most likely a reference to Facebook here ("walls"). Basically we are bombarded with information about everyone we know (which also ties in with the album's theme).

    the line "Come on and get it all for free
    Just hit that fucking key"
    seems to be about piracy and illegal downloading, but it could also be a continuation of my previous interpretation, especially with the lines hat followed.
    "Your long-term memory pushed aside
    I'm not evaporating, pushed aside!
    Let them sit gorged and frozen, pushed aside!
    In their immediacy, suicide by way of information"

    We are all caught up in the moment and do not think about the larger picture.

    Song MeaningThe bassist drescibed it as: "lyrics loosely stabbing at the musician/fan relationship in an age of uncontrolled transparency, unregulated thievery, and debatable integrity surrounding the music industry."

    which supports what you've said. :)
