"Tricked" as written by David Reilly and Jeff Turzo....
That's the way I like it
That's the way I want it
That's the way I like it
And that's the way I want it

I'm a dumb ass
I go too fast
When I shouldn't be moving at all
I know I'm the last

And your only chance
At having something meaningful
I won't ever be tricked into thinking that she loves me
Because no one does and no one will

I won't ever be tricked into thinking that she loves me
Because no one does and no one will
And that's the way I like it
And that's the way I want it

I jump into things
Buying wedding rings
When I can't keep myself in line
Try to stop myself

Put it on its shelf
And save it for another time
I won't ever be tricked into thinking that they love me
Because no one does and no one will

I won't ever be tricked into thinking that they love me
Because no one does and no one will
And that's the way I like it
And that's the way I want it

That's the way I like it
That's the way I want it
Here I am again left to my own devices
This is the last time

Anyone can bring me down
I won't ever be tricked into thinking that she loves me
Because no ones does and no one will
I won't ever be tricked into thinking that they love me

Because no one does and no one will
And that's the way I like it
And that's the way I want it
And that's the way I like it

And that's the way I want it
That's the way I like it
That's the way I want it
That's the way I like it

That's the way I want it
That's the way I like it

    General CommentThe beginning of this song appears to be missing. Oh well, here it is:

    That's the way I like it.
    That's the way I want it.
    That's the way I like it.
    And that's the way I want it.

    I'm a dumbass,
    I go too fast,
    When I shouldn't be moving at all.
    I know I'm the last,
    And your only chance,
    At having something meaningful.

    I wont ever be tricked into thinking that she loves me
    Because no one does and no one will
    I wont ever be tricked into thinking that she loves me
    Because no one does and no one will
    (Jump immediately into the beginning of the posted lyrics.)

    Great song. Great band. Especially good when you're pissed off! This song is all about him not being fooled into love again, only to get hurt. He has this (presumably new) girl, but he knows that they're not in love, and it's better that way. He won't get hurt. It's no fun when girls hurt you. :/!
