Come on understanding visit me for once today
I'll be grateful, you don't even have to stay
It must be hard for you to get over to my
side of town
I know there's many people like me to be found

If you come knockin' at my door
And I am not around
Foolishness came by and we're downtown
Please don't leave
Please come on in and make yourself at home
I know you're probably used to being alone

Everyone keeps telling me you're something that
you're not
But I know if I met you I'd like you a lot
What exactly does it take to bring you to my door
By the time that you arrive I won't live here no more

What can I do? There's no one here but me
And nothin' on tv
Where could you be? I really wouldn't know
Where else you might go

    General Commentthis song is obviously about like being confused...and like wanting to understand. like the song talks about how some people say that its not a big deal to understand everything, but mike's saying how he doesn't care what others think...he wants to understand...yeah...i don't know. heh

    General Commentthis is probably the best song MxPx has written and yah i agree with onemindtohear sortof that its being confused, but he wants to understand what is goin on in his life probably not the rest of the world

    General Commentits a great song! i personally think it talks about how mike tries to understand things and act wisely, but he knows figuring out things its not easy "I know there's many people like me to be found" who just like me dont get anything, and "I know you're probably used to being alone" cause there aint no much wise people out there. And when we actually get somethin or understand it we already screwed up: "If you come knockin' at my door
    And I am not around
    Foolishness came by and we're downtown"
    oops, i wrote too much, hope i didnt messed up. great song!

    General Commenti screwed that up.
    i meant to post proverbs 7 and 8. which is what this song seems to be about.
