"Macho Insecurity" as written by Eric Reed Boucher, Raymond John Pepperelle, Geoffrey Lyall and Darren Henley....
Name one thing on earth lower than a tough guy
Who talks with his fists instead of using his head
Who beats the shit out of anything it can't understand
Behind the muscle mask is a scared little boy

[Chorus]
Called macho insecurity
Macho insecurity
Macho insecurity
Cause you can't stand
Yourself

Got a bitch with me?
Why won't you say it to my face?
It's so easy to mouth off to others
But where's your proof?
Maybe we can talk if you'd just drop your act
Nothing's ever solved by making childish threats
That's macho insecurity

[Chorus]

Why do you want people to be so afraid of you?
Why are you so scared of anything that's different?
No one's ever there when you need friends
You wonder why:
It's 'cause you take yourself so seriously
But being such a clown
Gives the rest of us the right to laugh
At your macho insecurity
Cause you can't stand yourself

    General CommentI feel I know at least 1000 people, who I can say this song describes them. Bunch of assholes too. I dont know if there ever can be a more true punk band then the Dead Kennedys, these guys sure are talented!
