You know what?
The next time you see Nick
Tell him I'm gonna stick some needles in his face
And watch him on his knees
Watch him when he sees that I'm not fooling
'Cause I'm through being cool
And he keeps telling everyone about me
Like how I'm such a fool and that I'm so deceptive
I think I'll make him eat the ground
I think that I will turn around and notice the wind blowing tops of trees
I'll see the way the world begins to need color everywhere
And I'll realize how small I really am
And then I'll spin right back around
And say, "Nick, why are you such a prick?
Why can't you just marvel in the hopes that make up this reality?
Your world is what you made it
And I don't want a part of it."

    General Commenti agree with stdsavesmyday

    it's not about cool people but keeping your cool. and he's sick of keeping his cool because nick isn't being nice to him.

    General Commentyeah, Pathetic... that's a lame interpretation of this song. No offense. hehe... but yeah. I can't really tell you what the meaning of this song is. Only Chris Conley can. But I know that I've gone through what he makes it seem like he's going through. There was a point in my life where I felt I had to fit in and be "cool" but then I just gave up and got tired of being someone I wasn't. Yeah, the whole "through being cool" thing makes me glad I got tired of being cool.

    General Commentto me this songs about chris acting all cool about the situation with a guy going out with his ex (who he still loves) then he comes to a point where he's through being cool with what's goin on because he's not getting over her.. then nick starts talking shit about him and he snaps
