I know that you're removed
It seems that you're so busy
We barely recognize you here
Do you recognize me?

Are you walking away?
Or have you gone?

Are they just these little steps you're taking?
Only life you're taking
My world you're breaking
Only God forsaken
My heart you're raping
My life you're shaking

It's just that you're removed
You don't look me in the eye now
It's only 5 a.m. my dear
Do you want to lie now?

Is she seventeen?
Or 21?

Are they just these little steps you're taking?
Only lives you're raping
Only God forsaken
Only love you're taking
little love you're making
My heart you're breaking

Are you walking away
Or have you gone?
Are you leaving me?

Are these little steps you're taking?
My love you're breaking
Only lives you're shaking
My God you're hating
Only girls you're raping
My life you're taking

It's my little heart you're raping
It's your love you're faking
Fuck it!

Trouble Breathing
Alkaline Trio
While the obvious connections with suicide or alcoholism could be drawn easily, more subtly this song could be about someone who views the world through a negative lens constantly and how as much as the writer tries to show the beauty in the world, this person refuses to see it. It's one or another between the rope and the bottle. There is no good option for this person. They can't see it. Skiba sings it in a kind of exasperated way like He's tired of hearing this negative view constantly and just allowing that person to continue feeling the way they feel knowing he can't do anything about it. You can hear it when he says maybe you're a vampire.

Me and Johnny
Matt Paxton
Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."
