"Guitarred and Feathered" as written by and Novac Buckley....
This is a cause for celebration here in the belly of the swarm.
The situation demands that we raise our glasses
I honor of the spokesman we've fixated to the floor.
Give us your headlines, hymns, and your saddest verse.
You're not partnered with the half hearted anymore.
Our legs are spread wide open.
Our weary heads are splitting at the seams
And we all know your proficient in the idioms of grief.
We are capable of the kind of love about
Which only the petrified can speak.
Concede him the microphone let him sing the triumphs
Of the frauds to all his loyal sycofanatics.
We all cater to the fire once the walls come rushing down for shame.
I can say it better than you felt it.
And I can be it bigger than you needed it.
I haven't spent a day of my life apart
From the one everyone's read about.
I'll spark de-evolution.
I was specially bred for the cover page of your magazines.
I've been fattened up for the guillotines.
Sweet talker, you're goddamn right I'm a blessed lamb.
I can show you how to have a good time.
I know why you came here, but neither of us
Will get what you want out of me.
This room has one too many laureates so I'm keeping my peace.
Every candidate ends his life with a cliche,
And the paths of glory lead to nowhere but the grave.
I've been spoiled rotten.
Every thought I've authored has curdled.
Not everything is poetry but I can't convince you of that.
I've been drawn and quartered.
I've been twice picked over.
And it's sickening what you've come here today to celebrate.
Fuck yea we're gonna party tonight.
I am capable of the kind of love about
Which only the intoxicated and the California bound can weep.

    General CommentI just created an account because it aggravates me so much when people say ETID sold out. They are by far the definition of creating music for the love of it. Gutter Phenomenon was made by the band without any regard to trying to fit any genre. They made this cd and enjoyed making it because they did whatever the fuck they wanted! ETID is one of my favorite bands for that reason. They do whatever they want and somehow it comes out amazingly. Their music has mass amounts of energy, catchy and simple guitar hooks, screaming and singing that are both unique and memorable and breakdowns and choruses. Now I know people are entitled to their opinion so people can go ahead and continue thinking they sold out, but ETID has never sold out and will never in my opinion. I have every single ETID cd and enjoy them all in a certain way. The one thing that I believe though is that their earlier cds were not truly themselves and now they aren't caring about fitting a genre. Earlier cds were much more technical, but probably just for the sake of technicality. Their music since Hot Damn! is dumbed down in a way, but in a good way is my personal feeling on it. So anyways this song is great in all aspects. The "woah-oh" interlude is a great addition to their own style of rock music fused with elements of hardcore,punk,etc. This song I think is an anthem to their new found "not giving a fuck" attitude. Though I really never know how to understand their lyrics I love them for that reason of their originality.

    General Commentok first off, you have absoultley no clue wtf ur talking about. This is album if nething lashes out at sellouts. This song is one of the best on the album, and the who oh is he best fucking part. Hot damn is awesome too, but i bet ur ass doesnt even have last night in town, and i definatly bet u dont have the burial plot bidding war. this album is awesome and anyone who is pissed at etid because they sound a bit lighter tha previously, should be shot because they dont pertain the mental ability to opne their minds to different sounds exerting themselves from etid's amplifiers. Why dont u star a fuckin band, make 3 albums, and try not to chage ur sound. Music is meant to progress, and honestly i would be bored as hell listening to 5 different versions of hot damn all the time. Open ur damn mind margaret.

    General Commenti TOTALLY agree with crazy core 100%. He/she is absolutely right. Music is meant to progress.

    Anyways, about this song...it's amazing. I fucking love this song and I love this band. When I was moshing for this song, I nailed some kid in the face with my elbow (it was at the "I KNOW WHY YOU CAME HERE AND NEITHER OF US WILL GET WHAT YOU WANT OUT OF ME" part). But then I just totally let loose on the last breakdown...thank God I didn't kill anybody, lol.

    Anyways, yeah this band is pretty fucking awesome, I haven't heard Last Night in Town, but I heard Hot Damn! and Gutter Phenomenon, and I think they're both awesome albums.

    ETID owns!

    General Commentok tards. don't piss on etid because you can't understand Keith's brillant rhetorics. this is about song meanings.
    This song seems to start off in reference to a wedding gone wrong, swarm-hive-a famliy, spokesman fixated on the floor, which reminds me of those fools who speak for years at weddings. And how commitment and that lifestyle is vastly overated.
    just my interpretation.

    General Commenthaha, i love this song.
    who ever thinks they changed and or selled out are dumb as fuck.

    they are the only band that hasn't let me down.

    they haven't sold out at all.
    if they would've sold out the whole album would've been singing instead him screaming 7/8ths of each song.

    General CommentThe "Whoa oh oh oh" 's are clearly sarcastic. Keith's voice is dripping with sarcasm on the CD, and even more so when they play this live. He's mocking Coheed and bands like that.

    Right after the "whoa" 's, there's a killer guitar squeal and the song goes into full badass mode. It's meant to be ironic, nothing more. Such a good song.

    General CommentYeah, the "whoa oh" parts are mocking, and the rest of the song is sarcastic as well... "You're goddamn right I'm a blessed lamb"....."we're gonna party tonight"... I like this song quite a bit, and the title is clever (although I hate puns).

    General CommentThis song is pretty represetnative of how disappointing the album is. Every Time I Die shoulda left the "Whoa oh"s to Coheed, this entire CD is indicative of a sellout. Hot Damn rocks so much harder.

    General CommentSorry Mr. Crazycore, but I'm going to have to side with Margaret on this one.The song starts off like a classic ETID tune, but halfway through come these whoa-ohs and the stupid line "fuck yeah we're gonna party tonight". That sounds like it would be better coming from Andrew WK than ETID.

    Did it ever occur to you that music can change for the worse?
