"MakeDamnSure" as written by and Adam Burbank/mascherino Lazzara....
You've got this new head filled up with smoke
And I've got my veins all tangled close
To the jukebox bars you frequent
The safest place to hide
A long night spent with your most obvious weakness
You start shaking at the thought
you are everything I want
'Cause you are everything I'm not

And we lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close (How close is close enough?)
We lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close

I just wanna break you down so badly
Well I trip over everything you say
I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way

My inarticulate store bought
hangover hobby kit it talks
And it says, "You, oh, you are so cool."
"Scissor shaped across the bed,
You are red, violent red."
You hollow out my hungry eyes
You hollow out my hungry eyes

And we lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close (How close is close enough?)
We lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close

I just wanna break you down so badly
Well I trip over everything you say
Well I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way

I just wanna break you down so badly
Well I trip over everything you say
I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way (worst way)

I'm gonna make damn sure
that you can't ever leave
No, you won't ever get too far from me
You won't ever get too far from me
I'll make damn sure
that you can't ever leave
No, you won't ever get too far from me
You won't ever get too far from me
You won't ever get too far from me (ever get too far)
You won't ever get too far

I just wanna break you down so badly
Well I trip over everything you say
Well I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way (worst way)

I'm gonna make damn sure
I just wanna break you down so badly
I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way (worst way)

    General CommentI think it's about this girl that he's crazy over, and is trying to impress her as much as he can. The first verse is about how they're both confused about something, so he tells her the best place to hide. When she goes to that place, he talks "to her", even though she is gone, because he doesn't have the courage to say it to her face. The second verse is him complimenting her, but he can only do it because he is drunk (My inarticulate store bought hangover hobby kit), which is why its so clumsy. The chorus is saying how she makes him "trip over" with her words, because he is so crazy for her. He is trying to "bring her down" to his level, because he thinks she is above him. The last line of the chorus tells us that he doesn't really care if she likes it or not. The pre-chorus contradicts this, by asking if he is moving too fast, and getting too close. In the breakdown, Adam just goes on about how he is going to make sure they are together, and keep them together (kidnap?).

    Well, it's just what I got from it.

    I think they pushed the title together to show that the boy is trying to make this happen as fast as possible (since having no spaces cuts out the pauses in between)
