"Celebrator" as written by and Cody Votolato Whitney Johnny....
I just want to join the party,
but the confetti falling is razor sharpened.
I just want to blow out the candles,
but the cake is sprinkled with punctured skulls.
I just want to celebrate,
but the stripper they hired lost both her legs.
I just want to join the party,
but the pinata's stuffed with oil and sand.
I just want the flag to be my baby,
but her kissing breath is so revolting.
Tastes like hospitals, machine guns, burning hair, McDonalds buns.
I peel the wrapping paper back,
and I'm staring at an amputee.
When they fish a corpse out of the pool
the applause light goes beep, beep, beep, beep, beep.
And every soldier's spewing black cum from their victory hard on.
I want to celebrate!
And the clown in the fight suit is cracking jokes to the camera crew.
I want to celebrate!

The children smile and clap their hands
when they pull another baby from the rubble.
While their parents scamper for a partner to dance the freedom shuffle.
I just want to join the party,
but the song on the karaoke says,
"If you want to celebrate compassion is crulety and hip, hip, hooray!"
And every soldier's spewing black cum from their victory hard on.
I want to celebrate!
And the clown in the fight suit is cracking jokes to the camera crew.
I want to celebrate!
Wolf-faced gladiators always ruin a party.
They lick your punch, bomb out your windows, feel up your wife,
chew up your clothes.

And every soldier's spewing black cum from their victory hard on.
I want to celebrate!
And the clown in the fight suit is cracking jokes to the camera crew.
I want to celebrate!

    General Commenton an unreleased track from this album they have an acoustic session featuring a few lines from this song:

    "Wolf-faced gladiators always ruin a party.
    They lick your punch, bomb out your windows, feel up your wife, chew up your clothes."

    It is very humorous. And the word fuck is used in a comical fashion.

    General CommentI am looking at this from the standpoint of the War on Iraq. Though it most likely could be on war in general.
    This is the opinion of the invaded. There's people from the invaders back in the country with no problems, and they're almost celebrating their campaign.
    It really appears to be War on Iraq though--Like the American's try to say they are liberating the Iraqi's but here's the Iraqi's opinion. That's what I think. "the victory shuffle"

    Oh--Anyone else get a real sarcastic feel from the guitar? Like off the start it just gives me this sarcastic feel.

    General CommentNo, it's about how America is messed up in general. Examples:

    "I just want the flag to be my baby,
    but her kissing breath is so revolting.
    Tastes like hospitals, machine guns, burning hair, McDonalds buns."
    He wants to love America, but all he can see is war, disease and corporations.

    Also it's "And the clown in the FLIGHT suit is cracking jokes to the camera crew..." not fight.
    This is obviously a reference to Bush when he landed on that Aircraft carrier in a flight suit.

    Also the whole "Wolf faced gladiators" seems to be about republicans.

    General CommentI like the Iraq analogy.

    "And every soldier's spewing black cum from their victory hard on."

    A reference to the vast amounts of oil gained by attacking Iraq, perhaps?

    General Comment...Yeah...I'm pretty sure it's about Iraq.

    Does the intro riff remind anyone else of Minority by Greenday?

    General CommentI don't know about the Greenday bit.. But the opening riff... Does anyone else feel that it's almost sarcastic?
    To me it really sets this humorous sarcastic mood for the entire song.

    General Commentit even mentions oil..so even if the whole song isnt about iraq, it still has it's references.

    General Commenti think it's about the people who want to feel good about it. but know that they can't because there's such a contradiction to everything about it.

    confetti = shrapnel
    punctured skulls = victims of the war (both iraqi and american)
    amputee stripper = all the amputees that returned from the war
    oil and sand = self explanatory

    General Comment"And every soldier's spewing black cum from their victory hard on."

    I had a different take rather than an oil reference. I just pictured soldiers, and their boners being guns and then obviously, 'black cum' being bullets. Just another idea.

    General CommentTalking of the unreleased material, I wish they had released one of the songs (number 16 on the one I've got). The lyrics sound awesome (Ladies! And gentlemen! This is the death composition!) but its a bit hard to make them out and I really wanna know what its about. Plus its a brilliant song especially when the screams burst in towards the beginning.
