Insult & Battery

Story Behind The Song

Ever stood in line at the grocery store and read the tabloids to pass the time? Also a jab at extremely inaccurate columns written about our band while on tour. But also an inside jab at people who've re-written history to suit themselves...

Song Description

The quintessential rag journalist who cares more for ratings than truth. Fills in missing details in the stories just to fill up the column. Doesn't really listen to the interviewee anyway, and doesn't care for what they have to say! Sung in a vindictive

Lyrics

Oh, I?ve got a mouth like a shotgun
And every time it goes off
You get blown off
Plug another whole in the story
Fill in the gaps
No matter how gory

You?re just another casualty
Of insult and battery

Throwing blind punches from the sidelines
Swinging for the head
When I?m aiming for the headlines
Does it really matter if I lie?
When you can?t call it the truth
Till it?s read in black and white

You?re just another casualty
Of insult and battery

Just another shot to the head
From a snot-nosed grrrrrrl who thinks she knows best
Cause I?m just a bully with a penknife
Who carves out the facts when I can?t get it right!

You?re just another casualty
Of insult and battery
