That's it (except for the lyrics)!!! Sum 41 has fun with this song and it's one of the best 
off the album, instrumental yet easy to play. 
Remember: 
D|-7-|                  G|-2-|
A|-7-|  is the same as  D|-2-|  and
E|-5-|                  A|-0-|

D|-9-|                  G|-4-|
A|-9-|  is the same as  D|-4-|
E|-7-|                  A|-2-|

Just something to remember when you play the song. PLEASE RATE THIS! 
The only thing left is the lyrics, and here they are:

Lyrics: 

What's the difference of never knowing at all?
When every step I take is always too small.
Maybe it's just something I can't admit-but lately,
I feel like I don't give a sh*t. 

Motivation such an aggravation,
Accusations don't know how to take them.
Inspiration's getting hard to fake it.
Concentration's never hard to break it.
Situation never what you want it to be.

What's the point of never making mistakes?
Self-indulgence is such a hard habit to break.
It's all just a waste of time in the end.
I don't care so why should I even pretend?

Motivation such an aggravation,
Accusations don't know how to take them.
Inspiration's getting hard to fake it.
Concentration's never hard to brake it.
Situation never what you want it.

Nothing's new, everything's the same.
It keeps on dragging me down, it's getting kind of lame.
I'm falling further behind, there's nothing to explain.
No matter what you say nothing 's gonna change my mind.

Can't pretend on doubt until the end.
It seems like leaving friends has become
This years trend and though I can't pretend.
It's not the same but who's to blame,
For all those stupid things I never said. 

Motivation such an aggravation,
Accusations don't know how to take them.
Inspiration's getting hard to fake it.
Concentration's never hard to brake it.
Situation never what you want it to be.

Motivation such an aggravation,
Accusations don't know how to take them.
Inspiration's getting hard to fake it.
Concentration's never hard to brake it.
Situation never what you want it to be.

Never what you want it to be.
Never what you want it to be. 

Thanks.
