"The Irony of Choking on a Lifesaver" as written by Michael Joseph Green, Jack Bassam Barakat, Robert Ryan Dawson, Alexander William Gaskarth and Zachary Steven Merrick....
Stop fuckin' around with my emotions
I like you better when you're numb
I'm sick and tired of false devotion
Devote yourself to movin' on
Or suck it up and let it go

But you're always out to get me

You're the snake hidden in my daffodils when I'm picking flowers
That's just my luck these days
Why can't you just be happy for me?
You're the break lines failing as my car swerves off the freeway
It kind of feels like sabotage
Why can't you just be happy for
Why can't you just be happy for me?

You think your opinions make you savvy
Your running mouth falls on deaf ears
You say you're winning 'cause your laughin'
Well I'm cryin' crocodile tears
Just suck it up and let it go

But you're always out to get me

You're the snake hidden in my daffodils when I'm picking flowers
That's just my luck these days
Why can't you just be happy for me?
You're the break lines failing as my car swerves off the freeway
It kind of feels like sabotage
Why can't you just be happy for,
Why can't you just be happy for me?

(Why can't you just be happy for)

Why can't you just be happy for me?
(I'll never be good enough no, I'll never be good enough)
Why can't you just be happy for me?
(I'll never be good enough no, I'll never be good enough)

But you're always out to get me

You're the snake hidden in my daffodils when I'm picking flowers
That's just my luck these days
Why can't you just be happy for me?
You're the break lines failing as my car swerves off the freeway
It kind of feels like sabotage
Why can't you just be happy for,
Why can't you just be happy for me?

(Stop fuckin' around with my emotions
Why can't you just be happy for
Stop fuckin' around with my emotions
Why can't you just be happy for me?)

    Song Meaningthe song's just about how this guy has a crazy ex who keeps trying to get back together with him, even though he's already moved on and has a new girlfriend.

    General CommentIt sounds like it's about his now wife Lisa. Alex and Lisa had called it quits once again back in 2012. Alex then started dating Tay Jardine for a few months. I guess during that time period Lisa would post rude stuff targeted towards Tay. Lisa was as you call it "a jealous Ex-Girlfriend". He ended up leaving Tay for Lisa in the end.
