The Rebel Black Dot Song of the Day

MxPx, "Biting the Bullet (Is Bad for Business)" from Secret Weapon (The Last Angry Man)

"She said, 'There's nothing you can say to me that hasn't been said,
'There's nothing you can do to me that hasn't been done inside my head,
'Done inside my head.'
He said, 'Well, what else do you have up there that isn't tied down?
'You make a lot of noise for a girl from south of town,
'South of town.'

"She's so calm yet so confused,
She don't know she's being used,
She tries so hard, but it makes no difference,
'Cause biting the bullet is bad for business.

"She pretends to be so interested in current affairs,
Pretends she doesn't notice when she sees so many people stare,
And the people stare.
She counted thirty-nine steps from the door to the car,
Thirty-nine thousand more just to get herself out of the dark,
And now she sees a spark.

"She's so calm yet so confused, etc.

"The pretty pictures she tired to find
Are only real inside her mind,
She broke a window inside her soul,
It hurts more than you'll ever know…"
