"Sick of You" as written by John Mccrea, Vince Difiore, Xan Mccurdy and Gabriel Nelson....
I'm so sick of you
so sick of me
I don't want to be with you

I'm so sick of you
so sick of me
I don't want to be with you

I want to fly away
I want to fly away

I'm so sick of work
so sick of play
I don't need another day

I'm so sick of work
so sick of play
I don't need another day

I need to fly away
I need to fly away

Every shiny toy
That at first brings you joy
Will always start to cloy and annoy

Every camera every phone
All the music that you own
Won't change the fact you're all alone (All alone!)

Every piece of land
every city that you plan
will crumble into tiny grains of sand

Every thing you find that at first gives you shine
always turns into the same old crime (Same old crime!)

I want to fly away
I want to fly away
I need to fly away
I need to fly away

(I'm so sick of you
so sick of me
I don't want to be with you)
(I'm so sick of you
so sick of me
I don't want to be with you)

Every little dance
Every hidden back romance
All alone (All alone!)

    Song MeaningAccording to lead singer John McCrea, this song is "about how when you hate things, the circle of hate starts rather broadly. You hate the President or a big movie star, someone you'll probably never meet. Gradually though, the circle tightens and the objects of hate get closer and closer to the hater. Now it's your uncle or your mother, now it's your close friend, and finally it's you. Bummer."

    All in all, it's an awesome song... Nothing has changed about their sound over the years and given all the band's that have changed their sound, it's refreshing that someone is going against the industry and staying true to themselves.

    General CommentPart of this at least seems to be about obsession with new things. The singer points out that everything will be the same in the end, so these things don't even really matter in the long run.

    General CommentI feel identified with this song is because right now I feel identified with this song because I feel sick of work without any other motivation than money, to pay a car and all the things that I really don't need, and I'm sick of hearing about politics and the same crap that they try to sell us everyday, and most of all I feel sick of Bethany my ex girlfriend, who just told me she's pregnant and if t's true, I'm not the father, so like the song, sick of all and wanna fly away.
