"Cynical" as written by and Mark Hoppus Travis Barker....
There's a cynical feeling saying I should give up
You said everything you'll ever say
There's a moment of panic when I hear the phone ring
Anxiety's calling in my head

Is it back again?
Are you back again?

Don't wake me up before you leave
Is there the slightest trace of what you once believed (woah oh oh oh)
I feel your hand unlock the door
Leaving fingerprints of water in the oil (woah oh oh oh)

What's the point of saying sorry now
Lost my voice while fighting my way out (while fighting my way out)

What's the point of saying sorry now (not sorry, not sorry, not sorry, I'm not sorry)
Lost my voice while fighting my way out (not sorry, not sorry, not sorry, I'm not sorry now)

    My InterpretationThere's a cynical feeling saying I should give up
    You said everything you'll ever say
    (This is when Tom stopped talking to Mark & Travis IRL)
    There's a moment of panic when I hear the phone ring
    Anxiety's calling in my head
    Is it back again?
    Are you back again?
    (Is Tom back again? Is the negativity back again?)

    Don't wake me up before you leave
    (Mark & Travis don't even care anymore as they are used to Tom leaving now)
    Is there the slightest trace of what you once believed (woah oh oh oh)
    (Tom doesn't feel the same about Mark/Travis or Blink anymore)
    I feel your hand unlock the door
    Leaving fingerprints of water in the oil (woah oh oh oh)
    (Tom just sort of sneaked out at the last minute, ruining everything)

    What's the point of saying sorry now
    (Matt Skiba is Tom here, doesn't think he owes an apology since Blink is fine w/o him)
    Lost my voice while fighting my way out (while fighting my way out)
    (Referring to how Tom did not even tell Mark/Travis he was out)

    What's the point of saying sorry now (not sorry, not sorry, not sorry, I'm not sorry)
    Lost my voice while fighting my way out (not sorry, not sorry, not sorry, I'm not sorry now)
