{Verse 1}
If I'm a bad person, you don't like me
Well I guess I'll make my own way
It's a circle, a mean cycle
I can't excite you anymore
Where's your gavel? Your jury?
What's my offense this time?
You're not a judge, but if you're gonna judge me,
Well sentence me to another life

{Bridge}
Don't wanna hear your sad songs
I don't wanna feel your pain
When you swear it's all my fault
'Cause you know we're not the same (Yeah! )
We're not the same (Yeah! )
Oh we're not the same
Yeah, the friends who stuck together
We wrote our names in blood
But I guess you can't accept that the change is good (Hey! )
It's good (Hey! )
It's good (Hey! )

{Chorus}
Well you treat me just like another stranger
Well it's nice to meet you sir
I guess I'll go
I best be on my way out


You treat me just like another stranger
Well it's nice to meet you sir
I guess I'll go
I best be on my way out

Ignorance is your new best friend
Ignorance is your new best friend

{Verse 2}
And this is the best thing that could've happened
Any longer and I wouldn't have made it
It's not a war, no, it's not a rapture
I'm just a person, but you can't take it
The same tricks that, that once fooled me
They won't get you anywhere
I'm not the same kid from your memory
Well, now I can fend for myself

{Bridge}
Don't wanna hear your sad songs
I don't wanna feel your pain
When you swear it's all my fault
'Cause you know we're not the same (No! )
We're not the same (No! )
Oh we're not the same
Yeah, the friends who stuck together
We wrote our names in blood
But I guess you can't accept that the change is good (Hey! )
It's good (Hey! )
It's good

{Chorus}
Well you treat me just like another stranger
Well it's nice to meet you sir
I guess I'll go
I best be on my way out

You treat me just like another stranger
Well it's nice to meet you sir
I guess I'll go
I best be on my way out

Ignorance is your new best friend
Ignorance is your new best friend
Ignorance is your new best friend
Ignorance is your new best friend

Well you treat me just like another stranger
Well it's nice to meet you sir
I guess I'll go
I best be on my way out

You treat me just like another stranger
Well it's nice to meet you sir
I guess I'll go
I best be on my way out

    To HayHay her name is HAYLEY WILLIAMS! XD
    i know what this song is about
    its about the turmoil that was going on in the band at the time
    its basically the anger vented toward the band by hayley from back then
    oh btw this is not ongoing! it was back when the band nearly split up *just before the video shoot of thats what you get*
    the song is from hayleys point of view thats why in the video nobodys looking at here but shes shining the light on them which is a tactic for interagation

    This song is about a friend of the Hayleys. This friend judges her out of ignorance. Most people walk around saying they dont like this or that. And they blame the thing they dont like, they call it bad. But thats just their opinion, and causes a big wall between people sometimes.

    For instance: Why cant she excite them anymore? Is that really her problem? Why should she be put down for that. Maybe if that other person paid closer attention, they'd see many more interesting things about her.

    She is saying, if we are friends, why do you treat me harshly like you would treat a stranger with your hurtful judgements? Why cant you accept me as I am if we are friends? Thats fine if thats how you want to be, but she doesnt have any time for this person.

    Wow, some of you people need lives.

    One point to be made: I like Twilight, but it's getting really old.
    Two: I like Decode, but they overpalyed it.
    Three: There is a seperation, a very big one, between "emo" and a "cutter". Emo comes originally from music started in the 80's called emotional hardcore. It shortened to emocore, and now emo. It's a style and a type of music, not a type of person. A cutter, cuts themselves. It's that simple.

    Also...

    @cutie_good, cutting is not something to be proud of or to announce like it makes you cool. I've been there, am there, and I am not proud of it. I want to stop, am working my way to stopping, but it's a process.

    i believe the song isn't about hayley being in the spotlight, i think it is basically talking about what the song is called 'ignorance' and if you watch the video, you can see that she is trying to make herself seen by the other band members. and also that she has changed as a person and she dosent care about who judges her because she has friends around her that like her for who she is.

    well i think that is what the song is trying to put across.
    but i may be wrong.

    paramore are amazinggg.
