"Smile" as written by and Mario Kamien Vlado Dzihan....
I hate my friends [Repeat: x1]
I hate my [repeat: x3]
I hate my friends [Repeat: x1]

Two in the morning here I am
Turning blue
I'm drinking up for an old friend
Bourbon can't clean my mind of this voice in my head
(I hate my friends) cause they make me think about the smile that I'm faking

I hate my [Repeat:x7]
I hate my friends [Repeat: x1]

Yeah, that's the scene that I am
In lying at odds with every bland image
How many excuses can this fool listen to you
Never cared
There was no us only misery and distrust

I hate my [Repeat: x6]
I hate my friends
I don't care [Repeat: x1]

    General CommentPunk in drublic says... I can totally relate, like it's just about being a fake mostly and having your friends not help you with anything because they think that you're overly happy and you just put on a mask to try and sheild them or sheild yourself... somehow?

    General Commentthis song is so good. i think it's just generally about the paranoia alcohol can bring. when your friends all seem so happy and content and you aren't, and you secretly wish they'd come help you out and ask how you are. until that happens, have another drink and hate them...

    anyways, that's what i think...

    General CommentI think it's basically about hating your friends - therefore HAVING to fakr your smile, and drinking a lot cos you, eh, hate your friends.
    Also maybe about having an "elite" group of friends and you can't get out of that situation and you know that although everyones always saying how much they love each other etc you knows it's fake. Also maybe about having friends because of the "scene" you are in and not because they are your real friends.

    thoughts anyone?

    General CommentI think this song kind of goes hand-in-hand with Making Friends. Both are about being involved in a unsatisfying social scene populated by phony, transparent people. "Smile" is about being trapped in it, and "Making Friends" is about breaking free of it. Having lived both, I can relate.
