All the pretty boys you call
Won't keep you warm at all when winter hits the fall
Hair doth not a lover make
Your gentle lashes shake
Your dainty ankles quake
But oh, I'll be around
When all this fucking fashion brings you down
To pick your pretty heart right off the ground
When they take you on the town
With their designer crowns
They'll only bring you down
And all their cash can't buy you from my arms
Let's say hard triumph over charms
Let's send these spoiled brats to face the feds
And gens d'armes
Oh I'll be around
When all this name dropping brings you down
To pick your pretty heart right off the ground

    "Let's weigh hard triumphs over charm
    Let's send those spoiled brats to face the FEDS and GENDARME."

    Gendarme is the French word for police or something, Max uses the word in the song "Belt."

    Song MeaningIn an interview he did with the Alterntive Press podcast, Max mentioned his best friend in high school was a girl and he hated watching her being drawn down into the shitty culture of the school, maybe this song is about her?

    You can lsiten to this 2-hour interview on itunes by searching 'alternative press'.
