"Don't Trust Me" as written by Nathaniel Motte, Sean Foreman and Benny Blanco....
Black dress, with the tights underneath,
I've got the breath of the last cigarette on my teeth.
And she's an actress, but she ain't got no need.
She's got money from parents in a trust fund back east.

Tongues, always pressed to your cheeks.
While my tongue is on the inside of some other girl's teeth.
Tell your boyfriend, if he says he's got beef,
That I'm a vegetarian, and I ain't fucking scared of him.

She wants to touch me
She wants to love me
She'll never leave me
Don't trust a ho.
Never trust a ho.
Won't trust a ho
(Cause the ho) won't trust me.

She wants to touch me
She wants to love me
She'll never leave me
Don't trust a ho.
Never trust a ho.
Won't trust a ho
(Cause the ho) won't trust me.

X's on the back of your hands,
Wash them in the bathroom to drink like the bands,
And the set list, you stole off the stage
Has red and purple lipstick all over the page.

Bruises cover your arms
Shaking in the fingers with the bottle in your palm,
And the best is, no one knows who you are.
Just another girl alone at the bar.

She wants to touch me
She wants to love me
She'll never leave me
Don't trust a ho.
Never trust a ho.
Won't trust a ho
(Cause the ho) won't trust me.

She wants to touch me
She wants to love me
She'll never leave me
Don't trust a ho.
Never trust a ho.
Won't trust a ho
(Cause the ho) won't trust me.

Shush girl, shut your lips,
Do the Helen Keller and talk with your hips.
I said shush girl, shut your lips.
Do the Helen Keller and talk with your hips.
I said shush girl, shut your lips.
Do the Helen Keller and talk with your hips.

She wants to touch me
She wants to love me
She'll never leave me
Don't trust a ho.
Never trust a ho.
Won't trust a ho
(Cause the ho) won't trust me.

She wants to touch me
She wants to love me
She'll never leave me
Don't trust a ho.
Never trust a ho.
Won't trust a ho
(Cause the ho) won't trust me.

    the best line is defenitly
    "tell your boyfriend, if he says he's got beef,
    that i'm a vegetarian, and i ain't fucking scared of him"
    classic.

    General CommentIt's not that it's a bad song. It's catchy and pop. That's why all the girls that would have liked backstreet boys or insync are creaming over it. It's a satire on the sceane. The playout of songs is what in horrible. Most songs could be very enjoyable if they weren't put on every 45 mins. on every staion in the countrey.

    As for interpreting the song, the song makes refernce to the same girl. I take it after many listens that it's a song dedicated to groupies. More so a "band-aid". From Rockstar. The girls that fallow a band and think that the band really cares. However they're a band an he's out making out with many other people. She's drowning out the thought of the problems with drugs. I.E. "bruises cover your arms, shaking in the fingers with the bottle in your palm,"
    The hellen keller is an allusion to being blind and oblivous to the obvious. But like heller the girl is finally coming to learn the trust. No longer blind to the truth around her.

    See the song isnt stupid, just those who don't look into the deeper meaning of the lyrics.

    General CommentYeah, uhm, for everyone making the straight-edge reference, you're wrong.
    If you're underage at shows, they put X's on your hands, she's going into the bathroom to wash it off so they'll actually serve her drinks. Hence the lines following saying,
    "and the best is, no one knows who you are.
    just another girl alone at the bar."

    mmyeah.

    My OpinionBeauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    More and more these days, artists are coming out with songs that best reflect their lives and the lives of those around them, more specifically this generation. Songs gain popularity in this day and age, just as they did however many years ago. People relate to them. Fans will always search out what rings true in their own hearts and mind, and this song does that for me.

    General Commentx's on the back of your hands,
    washed them in the bathroom to drink like the bands,
    and the set list, you stole off the stage, has red and purple lipstick all over the page.
    ----------------------------------
    That line is about an underage girl going to a show. The security guards look for IDs at the beggining of the show and write X's on your hands so you can't order drinks.She washes her hands in the bathroom to "drink like the bands" The girl is probably a groupie since she kissed all over the set list.

    General Commenti always find myself singing the
    "do the helen keller and talk with your hips"
    and the line:
    "tell your boyfriend, if he says he's got beef,
    that i'm a vegetarian, and i ain't fucking scared of him."
    they have to be the best lines ever.

    General CommentMTV sucks and so do the idiots who listen to shitty fucking misogynistic music like this. This is literally a song by a talentless middle class white boy who can't dance (see the video) and who doesn't trust women. "bruises cover your arms, shaking in the fingers with the bottle in your palm, and the best is, no one knows who you are" -- disgusting.
    "if he says he's got beef,
    that i'm a vegetarian"
    Wowwww, did he get Dane Cook to write that one for him? SO FUNNY.

    General Commentokay,
    for all the people that's talking smack about the bandm
    get over yourselves.
    i hate those fan girl bands just like everyone else,
    and so what if the song doesn't have a meaning,
    can't there be songs that you just want to dance to?
    you can't be serious about music all the time,.
    everyone has different tastes in music,
    and if this is what they like,
    you have no right to go on and trash them.
    it's their opinion,
    just like you have yours.

    :]

    General CommentJeez, so much hostility. Truthfully, if you don't like the song, don't bother reading the lyrics or commenting it. Easy as that. If you're gonna be negative, just shut up :)

    General CommentHAHAHAHAAH OMG. this is so horribly annoying, that i have to laugh at it. a girl @ MY SHOOL WON'T STOP PLAYING THIS. Honestly? how can you people stand to hear this shit. it piss me off that this has nearly 300 comments, when there are so many TALENTED bands that can't get a single post.
    ... anyway, thats enough queer bashing. for the moment anyway...
