You ask me how I stay the same
After I'd seen everything
Could be the company I keep
You say I've got something you need
But what I have I just can't sell ya
Cause my experience runs deep
You want to be a brave man
But you just can't face your fear
You only know what you can do

You say get away from
Just get away
Just get away
Cause I might tell you something

You think the world owes you a debt
And they should hand you your success
But you won't find it on tv
You cry about the luck you've had
You wear your bruises like a badge
You won't heal until you're willing
So now you think you need my help
But you're just to scared to ask
We'll I've been scared before my friend

Get way from me
Just get away from me
Just get away from me
Cause I might tell you something

Just get away from me
Just get away from me
Just get away from me
Cause I might tell you something

Get way from me
Just get away from me
Just get away from me
I might tell you something

Just get away from me
Just get away from me
Just get away from me
Cause I might tell you something

Just get away from me
Just get away from me
Just get away from me
Cause I might tell you something

Something something something anything I'll tell ya
Something something something

Get way from me
Just get away from me
Just get away from me
Cause I might tell you something

    It's an excellent way of saying, "Crawl out of your pity hole and be happy, god damn it." Because, let's face it, you're not going to get happy by thinking about how sad you are.

    I agree for the most part with loserdork. I think this song is about one of those people who is always just feeling sorry for themself. The guy singing the song is basically mocking the persons attutide saying that they better stay away because the singer, as a relatively happy person, might be able to teach them a thing or two. and then the other person wouldn't be able to make themself such a victim anymore. just a guess tho
