about

An original Commander and The Duke song written in 2011. It's a song about frienemies and backstabbers and draws some influence from The Great Gatsby. High energy and hard hitting. It really defines what Commander and The Duke is about. Raw and uncensored.

lyrics

it's sad to say that my ears burn without hearing any proof.
it's 'cause you knew, if I was there, I'd knock you through the roof.
YOU NEVER UNDASTOOD ME, WELL I GUESS YOU NEVER WILL.
I'd rather be in solitude than in this friendly hell.

You think that you know everything, well, I don't think that's true,
'cause you forgot my birthday when you seemed so sure you knew.
AND JUST BECAUSE YOU PLAY GUITAR DON'T MEAN, THAT YOU CAN SING. *cough*
I'm so fed up; I've had enough; I'm tired of everything.

Now I know you gotta fetish for rumors and hearsay 'cause you been an uncontrollable flirt.
I was hopin just this once you could take a cold shower 'stead a LYIN' 'ROUND IN YOUR OWN DIRT.

I kind of want to get you drunk and wait 'til you black out *(faint sound of "Blackout" playing in the distance) (I wish)
And brick you up behind a wall where no one hears you shout.
'CAUSE NOW I KNOW HOW GATSBY FELT WHEN HE WAS RUNNIN' 'ROUND WITH CROOKS.
What would you care after all? I doubt you even read the fucking book.

Now I know you wanna go to the pretty pony show but my new girl's more mature.
She's got bangs, she's got wings, she's got all the little things, 'cause SHE'S A BETTER LOVER THAN YOU EVER WERE.
Oh-oh-oh, she's a better lover than you ever were.

*Metal breakdown*

You're such a dirty liar,
you're prone to friendly fire,
and yes I do admire how,
you lie through your teeth,
so hail to the thief,
I can hardly be-LIEVE
THAT I LOOKED UP TO YOU,
TRIED TO DO THE THINGS THAT YOU DO,
IN-HALED YOU, IN LIEU OF GLUE, BUT
NO, I AM WHAT I ATE,
I'M JUST A STICKY PASTE,
I'M, JUST A PALTRY WASTE,
AND YOU, AND YOU, YOU HAVE IT
ALL, THE THINGS YOU SAY, THE NAMES YOU
CALL YOU'RE JUST A FUCKING BOUNCY BALL!

you'reapussyassbitch
WITH A PUSSY-ASS DICK!
