We fucked ourselves all the way to the top.
We got caught with our pants down and our legs spread open.
Take it how they like it.
New Shirt, New Shoes. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
We got caught with our pants down.
Choke on your scene. Sell the kids.
From the basement to the catwalk.
Dollar bills. All you see is dollar signs.
Pawn your ethics, pawn your ideals.
Can you smell the money?
Take the best fuck that you can.
I've done some thinking. Guess what? I'd bend over, too!
(i'll take it)

    General CommentThis song is about bands selling out and leaving behind their original fanbases for the prospect of cross-over success. It's pretty self-explanatory.

    The point is: It's one thing for a band to become big off of what they do, but something else entirely to change what they do to become big.
