"They Don't Have Any Friends" as written by and Mark O'connell Edward Reyes....
It's a free for all
First comments served
Half listens in
And haven't watched it until the end yet
I haven't watched it until the end
But you can't stop yourself
(You can't stop yourself)
But you can't stop yourself
(Before you could get it for free)
Do you remember what that used to mean?

I'm not angry
I'm not anything at all
I'm not angry
I'm not anything at all

Why work if you don't have to?
Don't listen, we'll do it for you
Cause I feel like a bigger man
With the upper hand
In those last few seconds before I hit send

I keep my head down and hope for a hit
Open the flood gates for all those smug little kids
(It's not their fault)
They don't have any friends
(They can't help themselves)
They can't stop themselves
(They can't stop themselves)
Undressing themselves
(Alone in their room)
Thinking that no one will ever love them
(Is to tell me what I'm doing wrong)

It didn't make you happy
It didn't make you anything at all
But you kept asking
You kept asking for that song
And I'm not angry
I'm not anything at all
I'm not angry
I'm not anything at all

Why work if you don't have to?
Don't listen, we'll do it for you
Cause I feel like a bigger man
With the upper hand
In those last few seconds before I hit send

It didn't make you happy
It didn't make you anything at all
But you kept asking
You kept asking for that song

Why work if you don't have to?
Don't listen, we'll do it for you
Cause I fell like a bigger man
With the upper hand
In those last few seconds before I hit send

    My OpinionAs much as I love the music to this song, I really don't like the song. The lyrics just seem so damn petty, especially when compared to Adam's other lyrics where he tackles his girlfriend's pregnancy, losing friends and family, etc.

    Adam is 32 now, what does he give a shit that some dumb kid on a message board doesn't like TBS? They felt the need to devote an entire song on the new album to this? Isn't that a bit like feeding the trolls in the worst way?

    And before you point out the irony of me saying that I don't like the song means the song is about people like me. I love TBS and have for over a decade now, having been in high school when Tell All Your Friends rocked our worlds.
