"Big Brat" as written by and Alexander Greenwald....
It was all his fault
Introduced me to know-it-all
And the can-ni-bal, oh well
By the time they started showing up
I ran the risk of blowing
These times, these times get tough
So if I stay we're going to see who's had enough
By the time I needed backing up
Yeah, he was watching, cracking up
This time, this time it's tough
Well here I am and now I think I've had enough
Stand back
Take that and that and that

[Chorus]
You're always up to no good
Yeah, you're always up to no good

Well I was trapped in from all sides
Caught in a slew of massive lies
No, there is no escape
Only flailing arms and bellyaches
When it all started coming down tonight
Or did you run and hide?
Well I guess that we all makes mistakes
I guess I forgave you, didn't I?
Stand back
You're such a big brat!

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

Oh well
By the time you started showing up
I ran the risk of blowing up
These times, these times get tough
So if I stay we're going to see who's had enough
By the time I needed backing up
Yeah, you was watching, cracking up
This time, this time it's tough
Well here I am and now I think I've had enough
Stand back, stand back, stand back
You big brat!

    General CommentFreaking great song. Seems to be about someone in particular, possibly Jason. It reminds me of the time that friend of yours bring a bunch of weird people to your house and then leaves you there with them, all awkward like.

    General CommentIsn't the first lyric

    "It was August 4th"?

    Or maybe "It was all his fault"?

    General CommentIn Alex Greenwald's thankyou list he thanked his mom, but not his dad. I always pictured this being about his dad, maybe he left the family, or something. But Im probally stretching...

    General Commentif you listen closely at the end of the bridge/breakout/middle part, you can hear him chanting: "who's that making cotton candy, who's that making cotton candy, who's that making cotton on the dance floor"

    just a fun fact
