Mellow out
Hell no

I thought I knew ya
Took the time to put my love into ya
Screw ya
'Cause now you got me sittin' in the sewer
I'm through with all them roller coaster rides
See, I ain't forgot about the knots
That you been tyin' with my insides
I dropped my pride

Without you, I was sure to die
I tried with cash
And all I could, to make it last
Now I accept that was in the past
I know you love me
Love me like a piece of trash

But at first, you were so sweet
Couldn't go without seein' your face for an hour
So sour
It all became a hassle

You were even livin' in my castle
Just to use me
And verbally abuse me
That's not the way I'm runnin' my shop
It took a while to see the light before I stopped
And you got dropped off
It's over, probably I'll be sweatin' it
But in the long run, you'll be the one regrettin' it
Maybe you won't, maybe you will
But baby, you're still about as real as a three dollar bill

There's no one to blame but you
And who gets the blame? Me
No one to blame but you (no one to blame)

Oh, oh, I sound like a bitch (a little bitch in heat)
With all that anger that I'm feelin'
Bitch I think it's heat
Another split tail
Just another split tail

Thanks for the lesson
Now get your shit and hit the trail
We know I'm comin' from that old school
You damn fool
Intensity is somethin' that I'm made of
And certainly, I'm not afraid of
A little smack in my face
Thanks for that taste

There's no one to blame but you
And who gets the blame? Me
No one to blame but you
And who gets the blame? Me

There's no one to blame

I think that, uh
I'd like to, uh
Turn myself around
And turn it over to the

    this song is about when him and his girlfreind were living together,and he was supporting her. They would get into arguments,and she would say everything she could to hurt him. One day he just told her to get her bags and hit the road.

    Well, actually, retard...this song came out first, back in '97. Ya think maybe the title could have something to do with the fact that he says SOUR in the song? How bout you not come to bash bands that you know nothing about to fill the void in your pathetic life. And I'm fairly certain that, regardless of the hatred for Fred, Limp Bizkit has sold a lot more records than Stone Sour or Slipknot. Not bashing, I love all 3 bands...I'm just proving what a fucking idiot you are.

    On a more calm note...I love this song. It's the first one I heard by them back in the day, and I've been hooked since. Chocolate Starfish is the ONLY bad Limp Bizkit album, like it or not. Any REAL musician (escpecially a drummer) can tell you that this is an extremely talented band...they just made one bad choice...and that was releasing that pile of shit 3rd album.

    This is one of my favorite limp bizkit's a pretty cool hip/hop song with cool guitar sounds. It's about Fred Durst's girlfriend being an asshole and Fred telling her to "pack her shit and hit the trail.

    Anti-Punk has just proved that he is a complete dumbass. Have you ever heard of "Unquestionable Truth Part 1? no you have not. Do you no what band it is from?no you have no idea. Well I'll tell you, it is Limp Bizkit album make in 2005. (they have not even released a single from that album).

    anti-punk besides being a complete fuktard you have also proved yourself a sheep. It has now become cool to hate Limp and you are just following the crowd just like them. So stop complaining about Limp Bizkit when you don't know a second thing about music genre's and Limp.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

This is one of my favorite songs.

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives."
