There you go
You're always so right
It's all a big show
It's all about you
You think you know
What everyone needs
You always take time
To criticize me

It seems like everyday
I make mistakes
I just can't get it right
It's like I'm the one
You love to hate
But not today

So shut up, shut up, shut up
Don't wanna hear it
Get out, get out, get out
Get out of my way
Step up, step up, step up
You'll never stop me
Nothing you say today
Is gonna bring me down

There you go
You never ask why
It's all a big lie
Whatever you do
You think you're special
But I know, and I know
And I know, and we know
That you're not

You're always there to point
Out my mistakes
And shove them in my face
It's like I'm the one
You love to hate
But not today

So shut up, shut up, shut up
Don't wanna hear it
Get out, get out, get out
Get out of my way
Step up, step up, step up
You'll never stop me
Nothing you say today
Is gonna bring me down
Shut up, shut up, shut up
Is gonna bring me down
Shut up, shut up, shut up
You'll never bring me down

Don't tell me who I should be
(Don't tell me who I should be)
And don't try to tell me what's right for me
Don't tell me what I should do
I don't wanna waste my time
I'll watch you fade away

Guard:Dude, there's been a major mix - up.
Pierre:Are we're in the wrong place?
Guard:Yeah!
Pierre:I thought somethin' wasn't right!

So shut up, shut up, shut up
Don't wanna hear it
Get out, get out, get out
Get out of my way
Step up, step up, step up
You'll never stop me
Nothing you say today
Is gonna bring me down

Shut up, shut up, shut up
Don't wanna hear it
Get out, get out, get out
Get out of my way
Step up, step up, step up
You'll never stop me
Nothing you say today
Is gonna bring me down

Bring me down
Bring me down
{shut up, shut up, shut up}
Won't bring me down
Bring me down
{shut up, shut up, shut up}
Won't bring me down
Shut up, shut up, shut up

    It's about people trying to be better then others, and telling them they are NOT perfect!
    I just send this to someone I really dislike, and she didn't like that xD

    i think the meaning of this is that there is a guy who thinks he's better than everyone else and you're like lower than him that you need his help and you're sick of it

    meaning.

    hm. it's a song about someone who think that they are so perfect. blames everything to you, trying to help you.. but helps you in the most harsh way. thinking they're the one whose helping you, when in fact they're the one who need help.

    parang, pinapamuka nila sau na ganto ka at kailangan mong magbago, pero. sila naman ung ganun. parang, reverse psychology. ganun. tinatakpan nila ung harshness nila.

    i think it means that everyone is looking down on someone and pointing out everything wrong they think he is doing and all he wants them to do is "shut up"
