"I'm Not Ready" as written by and John Paul/schwarz Pitts....
Come on man you know that's not good for you
Laugh it off now but ?
Let me explain what everyone's already said
You know I'm only looking out for you

Say you don't believe me; "I know better"
Flaking out again when we could be together?
You wonder why you've got no one else to turn to
You know I'm only looking out for you

And I'm not ready to look the other way
Take a look under the microscope man
Try and ignore the disarray

And I'm not ready to look the other way
Take a look under the microscope man
Try and ignore the disarray

Your mouth is running off
Now that you've seen a few things
You're talking down to me
But i can see that no ones listening

So you've found some one new
To lap your shit up for a while
Honestly
Sooner or later they will find out what you're made of
So ugly
And then its over

Come on man you know that's not good for you
Laugh it off now but ?
Let me explain what everyone's already said
You know I'm only looking out for you

Say you don't believe me; "I know better"
Flaking out again when we could be together?
You wonder why you've got no one else to turn to
You know I'm only looking out for you

And I'm not ready to look the other way
Take a look under the microscope man
Try and ignore the disarray

Your mouth is running off
Now that you've seen a few things
You're talking down to me
But i can see that no ones listening

So you've found some one new
To lap your shit up for a while
Honestly
Sooner or later they will find out what you're made of
So ugly
And then its over

And now you can't count on me
'Cause I can't count on you to be
Honest with me
How I can believe
How I can believe
To be a friend means owning up and giving all of yourself
And loyalty is started through loving others like self
And now explain to me that you could be any of these
And we don't have to hold on anymore ?

    My InterpretationSurfer Blood is so underrated.


    But these lyrics perfectly describes how I feel about this guy who I recently cut out of my life. he was my best friend, and knew more about me than any of my friends did, and used that to stab me in the back when I was already having a hard time.

    I remember he was screaming at me in my face telling me I'm ugly in front of all my friends to make me feel bad. I just laughed and said, "who cares?" I know that I am not, and even if I was it does not matter. Looks fade with time, for people get old and ugly. That's when personality truly matters more than anything else, when your left to grow old with the one you fell head over heals for. Looks only play a role in attracting that special person.


    Anyways, can't wait to hear this new EP!

    General Commentjust realized the bridge isn't right, i think what it might be is;

    to be a friend means owning up and giving a part of yourself
    (and loyalty is staying true no matter what others might say)

    and

    and now it's clear to me, that you can't be any of these
    and we don't have to hold our heads high anymore

    im unsure of the second line but I took a stab anyway... :/
