So I say goodbye to a town that has ears and eyes,
I can hear you whispering,
As I walk by;
I walk by;
Familiar faces smiling back at me and I knew,
This would make them change;
This would make them change;

The only thing that's going to bother me,
Is that you'll all call yourselves my friends;
Why can't you look me in the eyes one last time?

The writings on the wall,
You've read that I'll be gone,
But if you call my name;
Just know that I'll come running,
For one more night to spend with you,
This is where I'm meant to be,
Please don't leave me;

Roar;
I've read these stories a thousand times, and now I'll rewrite them all;
You're meddling in an anger, you can't control;
She means the world to me, so hold your serpent tongue;
Is a whores lies worth dying for?
I'll just take my time;

The only thing that's going to bother me
Is that you'll all call yourselves my friends
The only thing that's going to bother me,
Is that you'll all call yourselves my friends;
Why can't you look me in the eyes one last time?

The writings on the wall,
You've read that I'll be gone,
But if you call my name;
Just know that I'll come running,
For one more night to spend with you,
This is where I'm meant to be,
Please don't leave me;

I walked into your house this morning,
I brought the gun from our end table;
Your blood was strewn across the walls,
They'll find you on your bathroom floor;

I walked into your house this morning,
I brought the gun from our end table;
Your blood was strewn across the walls,
They'll find you on your bathroom floor,
When I'm done,
But should I,
Write it all off?

But should I,
Write it all off?
You should have killed me when you had the chance;
(But should I, Write it all off?)
You should have killed me when you had the chance;
You should have killed me when you had the chance;
You should have killed me when you had the chance;

    He's talking about leaving Ocala (where ADTR is from) to go make music and such. His ex spread rumors and lies about him and everyone believed it. But now that he's come back and he's famous and such, everyone is acting like they were his friends all along. He's saying that he's going to tell the story how it really was and that is why they should have killed him while they had the chance because now he's going to kill all of them, basically.
