"Problems" as written by and Ryan Guldemond....
You and me, we're not the same
I am a sinner, you are a saint
When we get to the pearly gates
You'll get the green light
I'll get the old door in the face

Doo, doo, doo
I'm a loser, a disgrace, yeah

I've found love in the strangest place
Tied up and branded, locked in a cage
I say I'm gonna stage a great escape
Let loose and love all
But baby we're out of place

Doo, doo, doo
I'm a loser, a disgrace
You're a beauty
A luminary, in my face

I got it all, and not a lot, I got a lot less than a lot
I've got problems, not just the ones that are little
It's those people problems, it's something to consider
When you come for dinner at my place

I seem to find myself with the craziest of dames
They get the ball on me, I do forget the chains
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Some say strange be a stranger's game
Some go to baseball, some go to base and face
What you can't seem to say

Doo, doo, doo
I'm a loser, a disgrace, yeah
You're a beauty
A luminary in my face

I've got a lot, not a lot, I got a lot less than a lot
I've got problems, not just the ones that are little
It's those people problems, it's something to consider
When you come for dinner at my place

I've got problems, not just the ones that are little
It's those people problems, it's something to consider
When you come for dinner at my, something to consider
When you come for dinner at my place

    General CommentI think they're saying, "Some go to base to base but they can't seem to say," or that's my take on it at least. Maybe they're refering to the general topic of the song of the first place which is simply, 'Some people are set, and some are not'. I think by saying some go to baseball it's like a definete choice, and path in life for that matter. However, if someone goes base to base, they still haven't made up their mind on what to do, and that's probably cause of their damn problems, which of course are more than little.

    Nonetheless, great fucking song. One of the best, unique, and catchiest choruses to a Mother Mother song yet.

    General CommentThis song have a topic that could means that many persons in this world make the problems biggers than they are , I guess that he dont have too much problems or if he have he is just blaming the girl for that. A basic answer is that we cant blame to another person for our actions so he is just overgeneralizing too much of maybe nothing.

    My InterpretationFor the most part i only really understand the first half or so. It seems to me that hes saying he has problems with communication when it comes to other people.
    he feels like he is lesser, a worse person, a 'sinner' compared to the person hes talking to, who is inspiring, a 'saint'. this is also 'in his face' meaning he finds it obvious and its all he can think about when he sees them.
    hes explaining to this person that his behavious may come off as odd or rude because he has trouble knowing how to talk or behave around other ppl, 'something to consider'

    idk but this is a great song!
