"Sick & Tired" as written by and Danny/smith Craig....
I feel this, this tension inside of me
Pressure is presently pushing down on me
The first time it starts with just you and I
Repeating myself but you don't hear me

I can see what you see
But is it worth it to me?
The same old conversation
Over and over and over

I'm just sick and tired
Of all those lies you tell me
You say those same things to me
Over and over and over
It's safe to say you surprise
I see right through you this time
But I keep telling you
It's over, it's over, it's over

You've taken these things that belong to me
Twisted so tightly and torn so carefully
The last time it ends with just you and I
Alone in a room with these torn bed sheets

I can see what you see
And it ain't worth it to me
The same old conversation
Over and over and over

I'm just sick and tired
Of all those lies you tell me
You say those same things to me
Over and over and over
It's safe to say you surprise
I see right through you this time
But I keep telling you
It's over, it's over, it's over

You swore I'd regret it
Now thanks to you I can't forget it
Cost of this constant battle
Won't even miss you at all
Free from this life that you call...

I'm just sick and tired
Of all those lies you tell me
You say those same things to me
Over and over and over
It's safe to say you surprise
I see right through you this time
But I keep telling you
It's over, it's over, It's over

I'm just sick and tired
Of all those lies you tell me
You say those same things to me
Over and over and over
It's safe to say you surprise
I see right through you this time
But I keep telling you
It's over, it's over
It's over

    General CommentI hear "it's safe to say you'll survive" instead of "surprised" because it sort of defeats the intent of the song. Clearly, if the same exact issues and words are being hashed out "over and over and over" every single day, no one is surprised at all.

    The intense frustration in his voice really captures the feeling of being "sick and tired" of futile attemts to compromise and not with decisions but more so getting the other party to understand where you are coming from. He is fully aware of what the other person feels and needs but he doesn't care. That is a harrowing thought to have to deal with...at first...until you are no longer angry, but worn out and frustrated to the point of some sort of sick apathy where the pressure is not ever relieved and you feel as though your head will pop or something, yet, without the grief or heartache.

    Eventually, these situations become some sort of dialectic monolouge where the points are merely rehearsed nonsense; lies. The things that belong to him are his reasons that are not ever accepted or acknowleded because the other thinks that with enough pressure he will eventually buckle and give him/her what they want.

    Considering the way he sings this song, it seems like he is about to go ape-shit and totally tear up the room but I think torn bed sheets are symbolic of the bed they share and when it's the end they are completely separate, even in their own bed.

    What leads me to believe that he hasn't left yet is the last refrain;

    "You swore I'd regret it
    Now thanks to you I can't forget it
    Cost of this constant battle
    Won't even miss you at all
    Free from this life that you call..."

    Firstly, he says "won't" which indicates he hasn't left yet but is probably ruminating over the uncertainties of future regret. However, the cost of the battle is in knowing that life is short and it is better to have a few regrets (which is understanding in any situation where there are "investments" (not monitarily))and that possibly the biggest regret would be that he may not even miss the other due to "this constant battle." With "Wasting My Time" on this same album, it would be interesting to know his inspiration but I think that anyone who has been through the likes can completely understand! They are a great band!
