"Warrant" as written by and Mark Foster....
Well I've been just
I've been a bug unknown
I know all about it
But my heart is strong

I've been away
Been running to save my head
Yeah the warrants out and I'm almost there
No ones said what I've already said

Got to get away
Everyone inside my head
Got to get away
They want me alive or dead

Got to get away
Everyone inside my head
Got to get away
They want me alive or dead

I've thought a lot about the way that they fight
Come through the phone lines, not man enough to face me
I can stop or argue about what they say
Yeah the warrants out and I'm not gonna pay
I said what I'm gonna say

Got to get away
Everyone inside my head
Got to get away
They want me alive or dead

Got to get away
Everyone inside my head
Got to get away
They want me alive or dead

He was like a fake friend who warms you up and takes you in
You mouth the words but no sound comes out
And he was like your best friend who wakes you up and takes you in
You mouth the words and sound again

You don't know better
You don't know better

Got to get away
Everyone inside my head
Got to get away
They want me alive or dead

Got to get away
Everyone inside my head
Got to get away
They want me alive or dead

Got to get away
Everyone inside my head
Got to get away
They want me alive or dead

Got to get away
Everyone inside my head
Got to get away
They want me alive or dead

    Lyric CorrectionFrom the lyrics book:

    I've been judged, I've been a bug unknown
    Yeah I know all about it but my heart is strong

    I've been away, been running to save my head
    Yeah the warrant’s out and I'm almost dead
    I won’t say what I've already said

    Got to get away, yeah the warrant’s on my head
    Got to get away, they want me alive or dead

    I've thought a lot about the way that they fight
    Come through the phone lines
    Not man enough to face me
    I can’t stop or argue about what they say
    Yeah, the warrant’s out
    and I'm gonna pay
    I said what I'm gonna say

    Fear is like a fake friend
    It warms you up and takes you in
    You mouth the words but no sounds comes out
    Fear is like your best friend
    Manipulates and takes you in
    You mouth the words… no sound again
    But you don’t know better, you don’t know better

    General Commentthis is foster the people talking about the down side of fame. they are sick of fake freinds inside their heads. like all their songs, it is hard to know the deeper meaning with the really catchy tune distracting you

    General CommentThe very beginning of this song sounds like it belongs in The Legend of Zelda to me...

    My InterpretationI love this song... It's my favorite on the album. I wish it had more comments.

    As for the meaning... It's a very dramatic-sounding song, and I thought it was about literally running away from the law, until I read the lines "I've thought a lot about the way that they fight/Come through the phone lines, not man enough to face me." Sounds a lot like it could be about digital harassment. I think the victim of the harassment maybe got in an arguement with these people and gave a less-than-satisfactory opinion ("I've said what I'm gonna say"), and now they're sending him nasty texts or calling him withholding caller ID. But this is a strong person, and frankly they could care less about what they have to say about him ("I know all about it, but my heart us strong") - he knows he's better than them if they get so worked up about a view they disagree with. Now he's just trying to avoid them.

    I don't know about the whole "Fear is like a fake friend" verse though, but I think it's brilliant and often find myself singing it in the shower. :)
