I have a problem that I cannot explain,
I have no reason why it should have been so plain,
Have no questions but I sure have excuse,
I lack the reason why I should be so confused,

I know, how I feel when I'm around you,
I don't know, how I feel when I'm around you,
Around you,

Left a message but it ain't a bit of use,
I have some pictures, the wild might be the deuce,
Today you saw, you saw me, you explained,
Playing the show when running down the plane,

I know, how I feel when I'm around you,
I don't know, how I feel when I'm around you,
I, I know, how I feel when I'm around you,
I don't know, how I feel when I'm around you,
Around you, around you, around you

I, I know, how I feel when I'm around you,
I don't know, how I feel when I'm around you,
I, I know, how I feel when I'm around you,
I don't know, how I feel when I'm around you,
Around you, around you, around you, around you

    He's actually not even talking about a girl. It's an unknown fact that Serj had an undying love for hamburgers and he actually had to go to rehab for it. It's pretty brutal how he defeated his obsession for hamburgers, you can research it. Anyways this song is about the time he went to rehab and every Tuesday the rehab center served hamburgers for lunch. Serj's assistant in rehab had to lock him up during lunch hours every week on Tuesday. After he got out of rehab Serj had to burn all of his hamburger paraphernalia such as T-shirts, statues, and pictures (Reasoning for the lyrics "I have some pictures that wild might be the deuce") leaving Serj with nothing even remotely related to hamburgers. So now every time Serj goes to an outdoor event like a bbq, outdoor party, or a graduation, he gets really nervous and doesn't know what to do. (Giving reason behind the "I, Don't know, How I feel around you" lyrics in this song) Because he knows that he shouldn't even be near a hamburger, but some events are just worth more to Serj than relapsing. He has yet to relapse on the deathly hamburger, though it has been heard that guitar player Darron has offered Serj a cheeseburger, (Mildly related to the hamburger) but Serj declined. He named the song Roulette because a perfect hamburger in Serj's eyes has 6 major ingredients, buns, mayonnaise, beef patty, lettuce, pickles, and condiments, but is referring to a 6 shooter revolver.

    He wonders why he has these strange feelings for someone, but cannot explain why. Possibly a past girlfriend or just something new, unexpected. Knows how he feels around her, but when thinking about it, it's difficult knowing exactly why. Don't know because it's so unsure, do know because the feelings are attacking when you're with the person -ozzitorres.
