I thought I found someone
I thought I had something I could trust
I still can't believe what happened
It's not that you lied to us
It's not that our friendship was a front
It's just that I can't see the real in you

Yeah for years I was afraid
Now I can finally say

That I'm afraid that you've become
Everything that you had hated
I'm waiting
For this to blow away

How could I have been so blind
How could I have ignored so many signs
Especially when my friends warned me
About your deceptive side
And that your friendship was a lie

Yeah for years I was betrayed
Now I can finally say

That I'm afraid that you've become
Everything that you had hated
I'm waiting
For this to blow away

I've been working for
Something oh so fake
But it's never too late

To correct the faults
So many others made
I know you don't care about whats right or fair

I heard you say your future is looking so great

I've been working for
Something oh so fake
But I'm not working for you no more

    General Commentthats exactly what im thinking. i know some of the lyrics are messed up, because i did it by ear. i'm gonna fix them later today, because i'll copy them from living well is the best revenge. did you read the interview at absolute punk with tyler and gabe? it says alot about the drive thru crap absolutepunk.net/sub_pages/interviews/files/…

    General CommentI'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed that this song is probably about Drive-Thru. Anyway the weird part is that they took Vinnie's vocals out of the song. I think it sounded WAY better with Vinnie singing that one part, but you know what... if I was Vinnie I wouldn't want to be caught signing a song about how much I hate my own record label either.

    General Commentthis song is about drive-thru. period. they hate drive-thru, suggest u read the interview that was mentioned earlier, but richard and stephany responded to that, and i think u should read both sides. after hearing both sides i have come to a conclusion. midtown puts out a cd, they see NFG's popularity, they do not achieve this, they need someone to blame and they choose there label, for not doing this or that. Drive-thru not talking to them since december dusnt really help though. but none of it matters because midtown is on MCA. so now the question is who's gonna be the next pop star first midtown or dashboard? i think dashboard is gonna b bigger than blink-182 but thats just my guess, and i sure hope it dusnt happen.

    General CommentI have read both sides of the story, and Drive Thru records has every reason to upset at Midtown. Midtown may write some good songs, but they are down right horrible people. Gabe is a waste of life, he is totally worthless. The worst is when they got mad at Finch for wanting to be tacked onto the bill and play as the doors opened. Midtown screwed over a band on the same label.

    General CommentLook how they end the song.

    "I've been working for
    Something oh so fake
    But I'm not working for you no more"

    Its pretty direct. There are only a few ways to interpret that and all of them point directly at Drive Thru
