  • This song is about the frustration and confusion that comes along with being left by someone you love... essentially about being played. >>

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjThese lyrics are all wrong. And saying that they are one of the most origianl bands in the history of rock music is a horrific misconception. I could name at least 20 bands that were doing the rap-rock thing before the Bizkit. I'm not a Bizkit hater though, just saying. Check out their lastest album. Fred actually has some decent rhymes for a change. ha!
  • Jarod from Las Vegas, NvWomen can be the most horrible and abusive creatures on the face of the planet. When a woman is used to being treated like crap, she becomes a bloodthirsty monster, seeking a decent man to get her revenge on.
    She will insult, berate, cheat on, and strike him.

    This song is speaking of the raw and unadulterated rage of that decent man who treated that horrible woman so good... but she turned on him, all the same, simply because she'd been hurt, in the past.

    Don't anyone go trying to tell me I'm wrong... because you all know I'm right.
    It's time to find a nice girl that has lived a decent, happy life. Forget the "fixer-uppers" and the "damsels in distress"... no good deed goes unpunished.
  • Corey from Richmond, VaGreat song. Wish my ex-girlfriend would listen to this song. Why did I have to go and meet somebody like you? Why do you have to go and hurt somebody like me? How could you do somebody like that.
  • A.w. from Wichita, Ksthis song came out before linkin park was around
  • Kane from Wytheville, VaWORD UP to that song
  • anthony from North Cape May, NjThe intro for this song sounds just like the intro to krwlng for Linkin Park, odd.. Great song nevertheless though
  • Stefan from Stara Pazova, YugoslaviaOne of the greatest songs played by one of the most original bands in the history of rock music...maximum respect!!!
  • Austin from Smallsville,new England, --The opening of the song's guitar intro is played on a violin bow.
