Friends that you trust all probably know way too much
Just love them and leave them
It's the friends that will have your back that might stab
Save yourself from the evil
Before things get legal
When you're young don't fall asleep in the sun
Try not to get caught up in the fun
Be a snake in the grass, don't forget to laugh

Burn bridges
Make yourself an island
Just forgive them
And forget them
Let's all be forgetters

People you love will never love you enough
Hormones make them feeble
It doesn't matter how tall love grows
It plateaus
Save yourself from the evil
Go where the party goes
When you're young don't fall asleep in the sun
Try not to get caught up in the fun
Be a snake in the grass, don't forget to laugh

Burn bridges
Make yourself an island
Just forgive them
And forget them
Let's all be forgetters

    General CommentThe song deals with trust issues...fear of giving oneself to others for they may turn on you. He's trying to convince himeself not to care...to just have a fun life and not become attached to anyone. Love will eventuallly "plateau" and that scares him. He would rather strike (burn bridges)because he at least has some control; he's not dependent upon anyone. But the lyrics indicate he's trying awfully hard to convince himself that this is the life he wishes to lead...a life of no emotional ties.
