I came to say it's nuts how many people love this song it's a badаss track! And yet somehow sheeple either never realized or at least not at the time, is that this whole fuсκіng album rocks! Because if they had Sebastian would probably not be broke!? Oh & by broke I mean "rockstar broke"of course & thats not to be mistaken with "real life" broke obviously!!

Yes I agree with you, it sounds like your "friend" is a fuсκіng asshοlе! It's not exactly what I came here to comment on. However I'm not exactly sure what the real or official definition of "Best Friend" but I'm fairly sure it's not someone that purposely shoots you 6×... I can say one thing for SURE & it's that the feeling that you were "Best Friends" it was defiantly not a mutually shared feeling. S.Killer♥ ψYour Friendly Neighborhood Psychopathψ
