I gotta get this off of my chest
I'm startin' to feel a little unrest
Oh every time I check my shoulder
I see you there with a clueless look on your face
I've got to question your intentions
Your playing this one by the book
Whichever version you're preaching from
I've sung it once before

I know, I know you well enough
And if I looked hard, if I looked hard enough
I know, I know you well enough
And if I looked hard, if I looked hard enough

If you were so honest,
Why do you break every promise?
With everything that you say,
I take a pinch of whatever's around me
You don't like the size of us now
We've grown a lot since Hold Me Down
I can't help but think
You're the only thing in front of me

I know, I know you well enough
And if I looked hard, if I looked hard enough
I know, I know you well enough
And if I looked hard, if I looked hard enough

You put a price on everything
You even tried to put one on me
I give my all for your benefit
I'm sick of this shit

It's not your fault you always claim
You always cease to take the blame
I love you all for everything that you do
But I'm sick and tired of the f*cking abuse
I'm sick of this shit
I'm sick of this shit

    I love this song. I like the fact that it's about the sh*t they've been through with their label. Right now i'm writing an assignment about messages in music where i'm going to talk about this song. It's f*cking epic!

    It's about every one focussing on the singles and not as the album in whole. People being paid to work on the record knew less about it than his grandma.
    It's about josh thinking that if you're going to take a profit from the band, you should know what it's for.

    I think its about some of the fans who moan about how they've changed. It says "we've grown a lot since hold me down" basically saying we've grown up get over it. Also "you don't like the size of us now" because they've got bigger fans complain. If you read the lyrics it kinda makes sense.

    JOSH: "As soon as I heard Max's riff, I knew this song was going to be a pissed off song. Having had Oli [Sykes] sing one track, I always thought it would be great to get Winston [McCall] on another one. What he did was everything I wanted it to be and more."
    MAX: "Winston really gives it character. People don't expect us to make this kind of music, but it shows a different side to us."
