"Anklebiters" as written by Hayley Williams, Taylor York and Justin Johnsen....
Why do you care what people think?

Are you hooked up to the leash
You know, anklebiters
Ate up your personality

Try to remember how it felt
You just make up your own sex
And the anklebiters
Chew up, spit out someone else

You fall in love with yourself
Because

Someday you’re gonna be the only one you’ve got
Someday you’re gonna be the only one you’ve got
Why you want a piece of what I need?
Just stop to drop dead
Someday you’re gonna be the only one you’ve got

What do you actually expect?
A broken mirror to reflect, you know, anklebiters
Gave you a false perception

And why do I defend your ignorance
And why do I defend the state you're in, you should
Fall in love with yourself
All again
You fall in love with yourself
Because

Someday you’re gonna be the only one you’ve got
Someday you’re gonna be the only one you’ve got
Why you want a piece of what I need?
Just stop to drop dead
Someday you’re gonna be the only one you’ve got

Anklebiters
Anklebiters
Someday you’re gonna be alone
Anklebiters
Anklebiters

    My InterpretationIt's talking about how society makes us feel bad about ourselves. How we don't listen to the "right" music, we don't wear the "right" clothes, we're not supermodel skinny and our hair isn't cut into the latest trends. It talks about how the world can make you change who you are to fit in when you should be embracing yourself. You can't keep up an act forever, in the end you have to be true to yourself because it's only yourself that you're letting down by pretending.

    Song MeaningThis song of Paramore is pretty direct in interpretation, The singer is like conversing with another person who has been feeling down on there-selves since they have been trying way too hard to please everyone and forgetting who they were in the process. Life is not meant to be used to please everyone because not all can be satisfied with what you do, even if you try your hardest to do so. Before anything else we need to love ourselves first and accept who we are this is the time you will realize that there are people who well like you for who you are instead of you are trying to be.

    General CommentAnklebiters mean someone that's less than you, like a little kid or an annoying little peppy dog. Someone that's bothersome, but not really a problem, because they're so small. To me at least, the word has a connotation of someone who considers themself grandiose, but in the end they're just petty and annoying. Which, is a lot of people, especially those who want to project their own views of what things should be like onto others.

    My InterpretationI think the song means that society or a person is making you feel like an outcast, or different apart from the rest of the world. Anklebiters is one of the most played songs on my phone, and I understood it the first time I heard it.

    General CommentI think this song is about how people are trying to be other people and not their self.Also, I think in this song she is talking about her relationship with the Farro's.
