Trashed and battered now, and passed out on the floor. (Travis, what are you doing? get up) I'm getting good at sleeping on dates.
Nothing seems to hold my interest anymore. Bad ideas come in small doses.
Nice to meet you. We can't wow you with our people skills. We make enemies not friends. Your name again?
I just met someone whose name I already forgot. Come back and tell me what has changed. Your fake blood and blonde do not complement your face.
Go get your gun, I'll get my hammer.
Nice to meet you. We can't wow you with our people skills. We make enemies not friends. Your name again?
We are the only friends that we have (friends that we have)
We are the only friends that we have (friends that we have yeah)
It was the intention to make the third verse the same as the first. I'm getting dumber as I get older. Only wimps cannot handle broken hearts.
We don't know anyone in this town.
I'm making a pact, I'm delivering. I'm making a scene, I'm delivering.
We're making a pact, we're delivering. We're making a scene, we're delivering.

    General Commentthis song, to me, is about just not caring anymore. Like not wanting to do anything with your life. I like it a lot

    General Comment"I'm getting good at sleeping on dates."

    I think this may have something to do with the fact there getting bored of the touring life.

    "Nothing seems to hold my interest anymore."

    He could be saying its hard for him to find energy to play the same shows.


    "We can't wow you with our people skills. We make enemies not friends. Your name again? " - " Go get your gun, I'll get my hammer "

    I think these lines tie between them meeting people who really share to no common interests with them and which they dont relate to very welll, so they can nothing else but forget them, but i also strongly believe this line ties into the current number of violent supporters that has engulfed the greater boston hardcore scene

    General Commentthis song definitely has to be about drugs/alcohol. trash and battered, passed out on the floor ? Bad ideas come in small doses? I think life is just getting too shitty and boring and they try to cope by doing drugs and drinking, but in the long run they know its not the right way
