  • You don't mean it

    You need a uniform
    So you won't be ignored
    You are affected
    And so you're accepted

    It's time you invested in a bottle of poison
    So we don't have to hear about you bitchin and moanin
    You think you could afford a fuckin bottle of asprin

    Boo fuckin hoo you're not the only one whose live's a piece of shit
    And yet miraculously somehow we all seem to deal with it
    Did anybody think that you would really seriously slit your wrists
    In fact I think that everybody thinks you're seriously full of shit

    You think you're saying something relevant as you connect the dots
    You never reaqlized you have to get in line to suck a cock
    You're telling me that fifty million fans are never wrong
    I'm telling you that fifty million fans are fucking morons Writer/s: JAMES EURINGER

  • George from MichiganI always thought that this song was specifically about My Chemical Romance (esp. The Black Parade album). Which is really funny since just after this MSI album, Lyn-z married Gerard Way.
  • Mouse from Shawnee, OkThe thing I like about a lot of MSI songs is that they're pretty straight foreward. If the lyrics were posted it would be pretty self-explanatory. And some might say hypocritical even. It's hard to stand out in the sea of faces, if that's what you want. From what I've seen, the goal of any clique/ crowd is to express what's inside where everyone can see it (IE what you wear). And since sight is typically the first impression, that's how you know which people are 'like you'. "You need a uniform/so you won't be ignored" "You are infected/ so you're accepted" -- The rest of the angry bits of the song just seem to be Jimmy's expression of contempt for self-created drama.
  • Jessica from Columbus, InI absolutely LOVE this song. The beat is fantastic. I'm in class at school right now so I can't say much right now. But I think that this song actually holds a point behind it. The lyrics are, in my opinion, perfect. I like they way they portray their meanings and thoughts in each of their songs. This one, though, is one of my favorites.
