"Dull Boy" as written by Chad L. Gray, Ryan Martinie, Matthew Mcdonough and Greg Tribbett....
[Chorus]
All work and no play makes me a dull boy [Repeat: x4]

Live in a secret
Live in a lie
Live in a dark hole beneath the black sky
Live like a martyr and draw my last breath
Feel like an old man with a knife in my chest

Live like a transient
Live like a thief
Hide in a closet, grinding my teeth
Sit in a small room with the walls closing in
Open the shutters but everything's still dim

Payback
For all the things
I've done in my past

Payback
For everything
There are no take backs

[Chorus]

I'm not the reason
Its not my fault
Its not my problem
I'm not the cause

I'm not your scapegoat
I'm not your god
I'm not your martyr
I'd leave you all

I'm not the reason - (I'm not your scapegoat)
Its not my fault - (I'm not your god)
Its not my problem - (I'm not your martyr)
I'm not the cause - (Id leave you all)

All work and no play makes me a dull boy

Feel like a clown without my funny nose
Walk to the window break it out with my fist
Jump from the sill and I'll plunge to my death
You can me selfish whatever ya think
Throw back my pills and take a sip of my drink

Walk beneath the clouds
Walk beneath the trees
Always again envy covering me

Payback
For all the things
I've done in my past

[Chorus]

Sunshine's gone
Its all gone

By the way just so you know
Always this is how I feel

By the way just so you know
Always everyday this is how I feel

I'm not the reason
Its not my fault
Its not my problem
I'm not the cause
I'm not your scape goat (I'm not your scape goat)
I'm not your god (I'm not your god)
I'm not your martyr (I'm not your martyr)

This is how I feel (this is how I feel)

By the way just so you know
Always everyday this is how I feel

    My InterpretationI think this is about a parent or possibly a previous manager that blamed him for their depression or failure. And now that hes famous, they're looking for their cut, but hes telling them hes not responsible for their down falls, and they didnt help him get to where he is, and they need to back off.
