I never slam the door these days then again, i'm never here. And you know where to find me with my oldest friend I hold so dear. Who named the days? Who named this mess? I don't care what she says; I need to get out less. Me and him go back a long way and his advice has always been shite. But he knows how to make me laugh, I've never bothered if he's right. Who named the days? Who named this mess? I don't care what she says, I need to get out less. But sometimes when I'm with him I just stop being me. And he knows, on my own, I could never be the man he's always wanted me to be. He makes me treat girls like shit. He makes me lie to them and use them. I think he loves to watch me playing games and he loves to watch me lose them.

    General CommentI think his oldest friend is his alcohol dependency he's singing about, which is why he literally holds it so dear. Also, alcohol makes you do stupid things (shite advice).

    I just like the line "I don't care what she says, I need to get out less".

    General Commenti think this song is about himself and how he treats women setting himself up for failure in relationships. but he separates himself and describs the bad part of him as someone else so he doesn't have to blame himself.

    General Commentyeah, that's sort of what i was thinking. except i thought of it more like something in his head, like the devil/angel thing. the bad conscience.
