I wonder if you'll notice
If they lock me up and throw away the key,
Try to be open minded,
You"ve got a lot to learn in the ways of me.
You always gotta say somethin,
I'm none of your concern but you wont listen at all.
Ya know I'd rather say nothing,
And just be proud of myself for tearing down these walls.

When you fall I'll be the only one who looks away.
When you call I'll be the first to tell you I can't stay.
It's all over I found a better way to help keep you from me,
I'm better off this way.

You gotta keep this comin,
Tell it like you know it, but you don't know nothin.
Your call, we can settle this like gentlemen,
Or meet me out the back to end it all and start again.
My whole lifes spent waiting,
Ever since I can remember I've been anticipating your fall,
And God let it be a long one.
Can't let go of my grudge till I know your done.

When you fall I'll be the only one who looks away.
When you call I'll be the first to tell you I can't stay.
It's all over I found a better way to help keep you from me,
I'm better off this way.

You want it, you got it,
You've always been such a waste of time.
You want it, you got it,
A friend of yours is no friend of mine.
You want it, you got it,
When will you act your age?
You want it, you got it,
Your the reason things have to change.
Your the reason things have to change.

When you fall I'll be the only one who looks away.
When you call I'll be the first to tell you I can't stay.
It's all over I found a better way to help keep you from me,
I'm better off this way.

    The feeling of constant rejection, always getting out smarted by a person who is "considered" better than you are. In this case, the person wants to get revenge with rejection, ignoring the enemies offers and opinions. Sounds like the day in the life of a teenager,

    He's hurt by someone, someone who used to mean everything to him. Now he just wants to shut them out of his life.
