Blink-182's Travis Barker is seemingly everywhere these days, never going long without at least making a guest appearance on songs in and out of the rock world. The drummer was tapped by Escape the Fate to contribute to their new track "Not My Problem," which is taken from the band's forthcoming Chemical Warfare album.

The collaborative effort was suggested by Chemical Warfare producer John Feldmann, who introduced the band to Barker, who also doubles as an outside songwriter and producer elsewhere in his professional career. Things went so swimmingly that guitarist Kevin 'Thrasher' Gruft and Barker are now working on "several high-profile projects," per a press release.

"Not My Problem" is an emphatic sing-along that turns aggressive later on. Lyrically, it embraces the themes of distancing yourself from abusive people in an act of self-preservation.

I refuse to give you more attention
I've already learned my lesson, you take everything
You abuse whatever that you're given
Know I have to keep my distance and stay far away

You keep bringing your shit to me
Handing me all your insanity
Why would I help you with anything?
The begging isn't working, baby

It's really not my problem
If you got issues, you can solve 'em
It's really not my problem
Won't let you drag me back to the bottom with you
It's really not my problem, problem
It's really not my problem, problem

I'm not here to tell you how to fix things
I'm not interested in saving the day, not again
Save your tears
I won't let it affect me
Negativity is deadly, I can't take the chance

You keep bringing your shit to me
Handing me all your insanity
Why would I help you with anything?
The begging isn't working, baby

It's really not my problem
If you got issues, you can solve 'em
It's really not my problem
Won't let you drag me back to the bottom with you
It's really not my problem, problem

Gave you an inch, you took a mile
The more you bitch, the less I smile
Gave you an inch, you took a mile
The more you bitch, the less I smile
Gave you an inch, you took a mile
The more you bitch, the less I smile
Gave you an inch, you took a mile
The more you bitch, the less I smile

Don't come calling me the next time you need help
Think it's time you learn to take care of yourself
I don't know what makes you think I'll take your pain
It's not up to me to wash it all away

It's really not my problem
If you got issues, you can solve 'em
It's really not my problem
Won't let you drag me back to the bottom with you
It's really not my problem, problem

Don't call me the next time you need help
Think it's time you learn to take care of yourself
I don't know what makes you think I'll take your pain
It's not up to me to wash it all away
