This song deals with Taking Back Sunday's Adam Lazzara leaving his girlfriend Michelle Nolan. The line, "The first degree was a riot' refers to Michele starting a fight over the first time he cheated on her. "You've settled for less and I'm sure you'll settle again" is just another insult about how she'll never get another guy as good as him. At the end he blames her for his behavior with the line, "That represent and actively encourage all of my worst habits they all are proof that we're both capable of the most terrible things. Don't test me."
