Oh Mr. Pit, oh Mr. Pit, Mr. Pitiful
Who let you down?
Who let you down?
Who let you down?

You still don't believe, you don't believe
You don't believe, and your grievances show
When your soapbox unfolds

But please come down from that cloud you're sitting on
I don't expect you to admit that you were wrong

I just want to know how you've been
It don't make me feel bad that we're still friends
Mulling it all over in my head
I hope that you see through your picket
I hope that you see through your big yard and white picket fence
To make amends
And still be friends, still be my friend

So where did you go? Where did you go?
Where did you go while I was out?
While I was out? While I was out?
Well I don't believe, I don't believe
I don't believe everything I see
And if you don't like the movie then quit acting

But please come down from that cloud you're sitting on
I don't expect you to admit that you were wrong

I just want to know how you've been
It don't make me feel bad that we're still friends
Mulling it all over in my head
I hope that you see through your picket
I hope that you see through your big yard and white picket fence
To make amends
And still be friends, still be friends

Still be my friend

    this song is about one person being naive to reality, whatever that may be and the speaker is forgiving them for their inability to face reality. The speaker is helping the person back into the "real world", whatever that may be and is letting them know that he/she is there for them. The speaker also lets it be known that he/she is not mad at the person, but just trying to help the person out.

    This song clearly has to be about him wanting to remain friends with his ex, despite their failed relationship. Maybe he feels like "Mr. Pitiful" for trying to hold on to some type of relationship. And the ex is not fessing up to her wrongness within that relationship, and is sitting high and mighty.

    the meaning behind this song is a friend who's done drugs or is just upset with their life thus does something bad and you report them for the bad action so your saying look i still want to be friends with you so please forgive me and I'll forgive you and we'll still be friends thats what the meaning is to me at least so listen to the lyrics and you'll get what I'm saying.
