"Binge" as written by Tobin Esperance, Jacoby Shaddix, Jerry Horton and David Buckner....
You better put that down
You better put that down

All I need is a bottle
And I don't need no friends, no
Wallow in my pain
I swallow as I pretend
To act like I'm happy
When I drink till no end, no
I'm losing all my friends
I'm losing in the end
And she says

Behave little boy
You better sit back down
'Til you hold your ground
It's your turn to learn to fight
You better sit back down
'Til you hold your ground
Yeah!

When I'm sober life bores me
So I get drunk again, yeah
I'm losing all my friends
I'm losing in the end
She says

Behave little boy
You better sit back down
'Til you hold your ground
It's your turn to learn to fight
You better sit back down
'Til you hold your ground
Yeah!

You better sit back down
You better put that down
Put the bottle down
I am on a binge

Behave little boy
You better sit back down
'Til you hold your ground
It's our turn to learn to fight
You better sit back down
'Til you hold your ground
Yeah!

I am on a binge
I wish things would change
Wish they'd rearrange
I'm on a binge
I wish things would change
Wish they'd rearrange
I am on a binge
I'm on a binge
Yeah, yeah!

    General CommentI'm not even going to begin my lecher on the lyrics this site provides on this song...

    But I will tell you it's meaning...

    Right before Papa Roach starting recording Infest... They almost split (broke up), and they were all really depressed, up to two bottle of vodka a night... That's basically what binge is about... Alchohal and Depression...

    Because they all went through it... They wrote a song about it...

    General Commentits a pretty good song, not great but a nice change for papa roach to do somewhat of a slower song. the last little bit, "I AM ON A BINGE, I WISH THINGS WOULD CHANGE
    WISHED THEY'D RERRANGE, I'M ON A BINGE" is the best part. oh and whats with the capital letters?

    General CommentYour a dumbass...

    You think about the lyrics, Coby is obviously talking about himself "So I get Drunk again"...

    I think you getting the meaning of the song confused with how you can relate to it...

    The Song IS about the band, but you can relate to the situation voiced in the song...

    Take Between Angels and Insects for example, He doesn't refer to himself Like "Diamond ring gave ME nothing but a life-long lesson"... But he doesn't He says "Diamond Rings give YOU nothing but a life-long lesson"...

    There is a difference if refering to yourself as apposed to refering to a group of people...

    The song is about the band... PERIOD...
