I can still see the reasons that I opened my eyes to this scene in the first place
I can still feel my beliefs growing stronger everyday
I can still count the ways
But for you it's all over the meaning is gone and you're moving on
And tearing us down with you
You've shed your past, grown up fast
Demanding that we all mature at your pace, but here I remain refusing to change

Remembering when we were the same
I support your decision, I believe in change and you find
Just what it is that you are looking for?
But when you sit around and talk shit about everything that you once based your whole life on
That is where you can count me out
Because I will be here tomorrow and I will be here next year
Just like this X on the back of my hand, I'm not going nowhere

    Bane's finest song right here, I love going nuts when they play this!! "I'll be here tomorrow, and I will be here next year, just like this 'X' on the back of my hand, I'm going nowhere!"

    I'm not edge. In fact, I'm a user, but I respect the straight edge belief and lifestyle as long as ine is equally. Good song.

    what's funny is that by the next album aaron had broke edge, so in a sense, like the "x" on the back of his hand he was, indeed, going somewhere

    Crusades, are you sure? Cause I'm pretty sure that Aaron Beddard is still edge. Or were you referring to Dalbec?

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
