And I always find, yeah, I always find somethin' wrong
You been puttin' up wit' my shit just way too long
I'm so gifted at findin' what I don't like the most
So I think it's time for us to have a toast

Let's have a toast for the douchebags,
Let's have a toast for the assholes,
Let's have a toast for the scumbags,
Every one of them that I know
Let's have a toast for the jerkoffs
That'll never take work off
Baby, I got a plan
Run away fast as you can

She find pictures in my email
I sent this bitch a picture of my, dick
I don't know what it is with females
But I'm not too good with that, shit
See, I could have me a good girl
And still be addicted to them hoodrats
And I just blame everything on you
At least you know that's what I'm good at

And I always find
Yeah, I always find
Yeah, I always find somethin' wrong
You been puttin' up with my shit just way too long
I'm so gifted at findin' what I don't like the most
So I think it's time for us to have a toast

Let's have a toast for the douchebags,
Let's have a toast for the assholes,
Let's have a toast for the scumbags,
Every one of them that I know
Let's have a toast for the jerkoffs
That'll never take work off
Baby, I got a plan
Run away fast as you can

Run away from me, baby
Run away
Run away from me, baby
Run away
Doesn't have to get crazy,
Why can't she just run away?
Babe I've got a plan,
Run away as fast as you can
Run away from me, baby
Run away
Run away from me, baby
Run away
Doesn't have to get crazy,
Why can't she just, run away?
Baby I got a plan,
Run away as fast as you can

(Pusha T)

24/7, 365, pussy stays on my mind
I-I-I-I did it, all right, all right, I admit it
Now pick your next move, you could leave or live wit' it
Ichabod Crane with that motherfuckin' top off
Split and go where? Back to wearin' knockoffs, ha ha
Knock it off, Neiman's, shop it off
Let's talk over mai tais, waitress, top it off
Hoes like poachers wanna fly in your Freddy loafers
You can't blame 'em, they ain't never seen Versace sofas
Every bag, every blouse, every bracelet
Comes with a price tag, baby, face it
You should leave if you can't accept the basics
Plenty hoes in the baller-nigga's matrix
Invisibly set, the Rolex is faceless
I'm just young, rich, and tasteless
P!

(Kanye)

Never was much of a romantic
I could never take the intimacy

And I know it did damage
Plus the look in your eyes, is killing me

I guess you knew an advantage
Cuz you can blame me for every thing

And I don't know how imma manage
If one day you just up and leave


And, I always find somethin' wrong
Yeah I always find somethin' wrong
You been puttin' up with my shit just way too long
I'm so gifted at findin' what I don't like the most
So I think it's time for us to have a toast

Let's have a toast for the douchebags,
Let's have a toast for the assholes,
Let's have a toast for the scumbags,
Every one of them that I know
Let's have a toast for the jerkoffs
That'll never take work off
Baby, I got a plan
Run away fast as you can

    He's taking a stand and saying that he himself is screwed up. And he's acknowledging the fact that he isn't right for the person that he's with. He's actually taking a selfless position in the fact that he's telling the person that he's with to runaway because he's not right for them.

    @ Musicalprincess: "I wish people wouldnt comment on something they dont know."

    I only comment on what he's trying to say. I just wished that he used his own words instead of stealing from others. The song was intended to be an apology to tswift. If that is the case, then the lyrics don't make sense.

    If indeed the song is about his ex (or another woman), then I can see your point. Then again, he shouldn't say that it's his apology either. In either case, he should be using his words.

    I've seen the full length video I thought it was amazing at first I thought it was be such a waste of time to watch this 34 minute video but the deeper it got into the video the more I liked it. This song is great.

    People need to stop riding Kayne's * for that whole Swift thing come on now she's moved on y'all little grudge holders need to let it go it doesn't even affect you.

    I feel so identified with this song, I've been such a douchebag with my wife. Fml maybe she is better off w/o me. I wish her the best,.
    My advise for all of you out there if you have a great woman.
    /man next to you don't take it from granted. Don't make the mistakes I made cuz later on it may be too late.

    @Daexplainurr - Wonderfully written and well thought out passage you wrote. It's good to see other people take heed of written lyrics as a means of artistic expression and also nice to see that the English language is still being used properly.

    Also, thank you for expressing your opinion of the lyrics, as I almost entirely agree with you in your interpretation. That's what art is, an interpretation of life.

    My issues are with kw (or his management/publicity peeps) saying that this was his "apology" to tswift for his actions. It isn't an apology, it's more of a non-apology by him just saying that this is who he is, so live with it. It should have been trumpeted as his "response" and not an apology. . Either way, he is a huge douche for doing what he did to her. It was disrespectful, unprofessional and childish. If it had happened to him, he would've reacted much differently I'm sure. Kudos to tswift for reacting like a professional. Can you imagine if Shaquille O'Neil did that to Steve Nash?

    The concept of the protagonist telling his woman to runaway if she doesn't like him and his lifestyle is not original (see artists such as: The Guess Who, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Pink Floyd - who wrote an entire album about that concept - , Lionel Richie, etc.). Even the imagery and alliteration used is stolen, he just switched out a few words. Plagiarism, period.

    My summary: I believe he could truly be a great artist if he started using his own concepts, words and music and he or his people must stop garnering false publicity by stirring the pot unnecessarily.

    Be yourself, don't just churn out 'dance pop'.
