Monday morning you woke up crying
The outcome of a stupid line oh-oh
Said by some punk-ass on the street
It wasn't me, it wasn't you
It wasn't anybody you knew is it
Your old friend insecurity?

The one companion that stuck by your side since you were born

Tuesday night you were in a fight
The same old argument black and white
It's something that's eating your inside
It's not the food, it's not the booze
It isn't anything consumed so is it
becoming a problem you can't hide?

So every time you thought that you were wrong you were right

The devil on your shoulder gives you strength in paranoia
The countless times you called a few
Your best friend till the end of time
They'll always be there by your side
Solidify conditions you've abused
What that means you'll never have a clue

More than just a life long friend
No social life I guess we can pretend
It's not like I care but anyway
You always wanna leave, you never wanna stay
Cause you think if you drink too much then you will lose it
You'll drink your security away

The one companion that stuck by your side since you were born

The little voice inside your head, annoying and confusing
That somehow tells you what to do
Socially you've lost your mind and basically you're out of time
You try to build so much it breaks on you
What that means you'll never have a clue

    this song is about a girl who has a low self estem and is highly insercure. She's always beating herself up about her problems. Her problems has taken over her life and are now controlling her. she trys to sort things out but it just all confuses her.

    alot of people dont give this song much credit, like it's just another song.. but it's tied with not your savior for my favorite nufan song. i love it and i could listen to it a million times without tiring of it, i dont know why. it doesnt apply to me.

    This is the best no use song from the best no use album (carne). Anyway, its been 3 years since someone commented on it so I figured I'd put in my two cents.

    My Interpretation
    I think this song is so good because of the melody which is uplifting, and the powerfull drums, and name of the song wich at first glance is positive. On the other side, i think that as most of people have said here, it's about someone who feels chronically alone and does not even consider about trusting other people enough so as to give up on his isolated poin of view, resulting in paranoia. It could be a medical condition.
