One Direction fans are calling out Zayn for 'dissing' the band in the lyrics to 'Good Years'

"I pray to God I didn't waste all my good years" sings Zayn on new song 'Good Years'.
It doesn't take a genius to read into some of the lyrics in the song. Zayn sings (repeatedly) "I'd rather be anywhere but here" and "I close my eyes and see a crowd of a thousand tears / I pray to God I didn't waste all my good years".
Another lyric seems to reference the One Direction song 'Drag Me Down', which was released after Zayn left the group in 2015. "Nothing in the world could bring us down", sings Zayn. "Bring us down, bring us down", continues the refrain.
Fans think another lyric is specifically about the time when Zayn and Louis Tomlinson were forced to apologise to their fans after being filmed smoking weed. "Too much drugs and alcohol / What the hell were we fighting for? / 'Cause now the whole damn world will know / That we're too numb and just too dumb to change the story".
Louis Tomlinson has seemingly responded to the song, writing simply: "Proper confused. What a hypocrite!"

listening to good years and thinking of the camping scene in this is us where zayn asked the boys if they think they'll be friends forever bc of what they've been through together.. yeah i'm heartbroken— eleni👄 (@holylarents) December 6, 2018
zayn released song called "good years" and everyone thinks it's about his days when he was in 1D (i also think so bc the lyrics are so obvious) and then louis tweeted that, i'm just so sad over the fact that z reached for him once but then again this happened.— chary (@tabionly) December 6, 2018
i'm crying at good years it's so sad that zayn was so unhappy and really is questioning whether he should have been in 1D in the first place 😭— grace ♡ louis (@TROYESlVAN) December 6, 2018
@zaynmalik great song but thanks for breaking my heart making me feel like all those years supporting 1D were a “waste of good years” as you claim— Carrie💔 (@carineekh) December 6, 2018
not picking sides but zayn literally said he wasted his good years on one direction and their friendship louis has the damn right to be upset— gemma (@elouisny) December 6, 2018
