So sorry it's over, so sorry it's over
There's so much more that I wanted and
(So sorry it's over)
There's so much more that I needed and
(So sorry it's over)
Time keeps moving on and on and on
Soon we'll all be gone

Let's take some time to talk this over
You're out of line and rarely sober
We can't depend on your excuses
'Cause in the end it's f****** useless
You can only lean on me for so long
Bring the ship about to watch a friend
Drown
Sit out on the ledge, begged you to come
Down
You can only lean on me for so long

I remember shots without a chaser
Absentminded thoughts, now you're a
Stranger
Cover up the scars put on your gameface
Left you in the bar to try and save face

You can only lean on me for so long
Bring the ship about to watch a friend
Drown
Sit out on the ledge, begged you to come
Down
You can only lean on me for so long
So sorry it's over, so sorry it's over
There's so much more that I wanted and
(So sorry it's over)
There's so much more that I needed and
(So sorry it's over)
Time keeps moving on and on and on
Soon we'll all be gone

Man on a mission, can't say I miss him
Around
Insider information, hand in your resignation
Loss of a good friend best of intentions I
Found
Tight lipped procrastination
Yeah later, see you around

    The song is about the ex-drummer scott raynor and how his drinking became to much of a problem for the band to handle, and even though they tried to help him the overall result was to kick him out of the band
