"Behind the Paint" as written by Mike E. Clark, Joseph Bruce and William Dail....
(Today we'll be talking about the reporting artists The Insane Clown Posse)
(They look too spooky) Dickface (It kinda reminds me of gang related)
(Before the anti-Christ who is coming)

Remember me bitch 8th grade
Ball park skinny ass well-fare aid
Ulster and Bruce brothers we was the shit
Dungeons Dragons, and Bruce Lee flicks
Quit school nobody missed us,
Nobody hugged and kissed us only dissed us
Now look at these beautiful model type high class women
Takin' my dick in em
You don't remember my kind in class
The whipped out freak starin' at your ass
Never had the courage to even say hi
Only smell your perfume vapors as you walk by
I'm the scrub that never crossed your mind
Now your flashing your titties at me waitin' in line
And that's fine while you're working your charm
Look beneath the paint bitch its the scrubs who won

You used to say "Ahhh Hah!"
Look at him the same pair of pants and that shirt again
An outcast I knew I had to do something
Figure out a way to make something out of nothin'
Open up shop got what you need
Speakers clothes CD's or bags of weed
But that shit got me nowhere except jail
Me and all my homies to broke to make the bail
So now we're right back at the place we started
Chuckles and laugh the second we turn our backs
Assed out but we was like "fuck y'all"
We got each other and the drop of the homie call
Look at us now bitch holdin' platinum
All up on my dick but I'm the same as back then
Forget the money and fame because
Beneath the paint life's just as it always was

Look at me!
Analyze! What you see?
Look at me!
Analyze! What you see?

Another girl I don't dare to confide in
Playing that role it hurts inside
Here I am thinking she wants me
She only wants that killer on her CD
Just when I couldn't feel any worse
Bitch asked me if I could paint my face first
The day I finally get to leave this land
Behind the paint will be the shell of a used up man
Behind the paint will be the shell of a used up man
The shell of a used up man
The shell of a used up man
Behind the paint will be the shell of a used up man (Analyze!)
The shell of a used up man
The shell of a used up man
Nothing left but the shell of a used up man
Nothing left but the shell of a used up man
Behind the paint will be the shell of a used up man (Analyze!)
The shell of a used up man
The shell of a used up man

    General Commentthis song is obviously a testimony to the pressure of the life of a musician especially musicians like ICP i mean cmon these guys were nobodys when they first started and now they have beautiful women wanting they're scrubby asses shit if i was them i would be a little confused and depressed to know that women only want you for your stage persona

    General CommentOk, what I think of this song, is that, before ICP made it to the top, they were nothing. They got beat on, got into the wrong group at school, ect. No one wanted them, everyone hated them. But, now that they are making a shit load of money, everyone wants to known them, be friends with them, be them and fuck them. And, for the one person who said people who listen to ICP do drugs n' shit, uh, WRONG! I know a SHIT load of people who listen to ICP, and they DON'T do drugs, DON'T drink, DON'T smoke, me, I smoke, cuz I got addicted, before I even listened to ICP. I drink because I'm legal age too. So ha!

    General CommentOk, I think this song is all about how when they were growing up, no one paid attention to them, everyone hated them, they never go any from a chick, ect. But now that they are big and making money, everyone wants to be their friend, everyone wants to know them, everyone wants to get laid by them. But, they are trying to say in this song, that even though they have money now, they are still the same people as back in high school.
