about

This song was originally going to be called "Unsaid" but I'm uncertain if I have a song with that title yet or not. So I tried to come up with something that also said what the song spoke of, and creatively, I tied the title into the main effect I used on all the vocals: Distortion. So the song is jam-packed with many different things I want to tell people I care about, but am far too nice to say them. Consequently for them, they are this way, and I have chose to say nothing to them, so they'll go on living in this distorted perception that they have of themselves.

lyrics

Verse 1:
If you walk out that door then don’t you ever come back
(I swear I’ll change the locks to it)
And shut it if you’ve got issues with your dad because I’m not that kinda man
(and I hate the comparison)
Just because you’re skinny now doesn’t mean you are attractive
(enough to wear that bitch face baby)
You just keep yacking it up as if anyone knows you’re there
(Google is our friend and not your point prover)

Chorus:
It’s because you’re my friend
These things go on unsaid
Because I’ve got to much class
To call you by your name
Either that or I’m tame
And I’m just too nice to say
That you make me decay
More and more everyday
And it’s just far too late
You make me feel unpretty
And not at all nice to me
So just have a nice day
But get your shit and just leave
I am over this game
And above all your ways

Verse 2:
If u wanna get yourself some more friends then stop being so negative
(Negativity tends to bring people down)
If you think that your shit don’t stink then please don’t waste your time on me
(I’ve had my fair share of pompous jerk-wads)
If you hate me so much then why you even in my life still
(Seems to me that I’m the best that you will ever do)
If you need to be told that you’re cute then please just go hang with the fuglies
(No one looks good wearing insecurity)

Chorus:
It’s because you’re my friend
These things go on unsaid
Because I’ve got to much class
To call you by your name
Either that or I’m tame
And I’m just too nice to say
That you make me decay
More and more everyday
And it’s just far too late
You make me feel unpretty
And not at all nice to me
So just have a nice day
But get your shit and just leave
I am over this game
And above all your ways

Bridge:
I love you by the way
Even though the things you say
Are so underneath me
Unkind and uncaring

Chorus:
It’s because you’re my friend
These things go on unsaid
Because I’ve got to much class
To call you by your name
Either that or I’m tame
And I’m just too nice to say
That you make me decay
More and more everyday
And it’s just far too late
You make me feel unpretty
And not at all nice to me
So just have a nice day
But get your shit and just leave
I am over this game
And above all your ways
