"Why Don't You Find Out for Yourself? (Morrissey cover)" as written by and Steven Patrick/whyte Morrissey....
The sanest days are mad
Why don't you find out for yourself?
Then you'll see the price very closely

Some men here
They have a special interest in your career
They want to help you to grow

And then siphon all your dough
Why don't you find out for yourself?
Then you'll see the glass hidden in the grass

You'll never believe me
So why don't you find out for yourself?
Sick down to my heart, that's just the way it goes

Some men here
They know the full extent of your distress
They kneel and pray and they say

Long may it last
Why don't you find out for youself?
Then you'll see the glass hidden in the grass

Bad scenes come and go
For which you must allow
Sick down to my heart, that's just the way it goes

Don't rake up my mistakes
I know exactly what they are
And what do you do
Well, you sit there
I've been stabbed in the back
So many many times
I don't have any skin
But that's just the way it goes

    General Commenti love this song...i just downloaded it...they've got it on kazaa lite, winmx, limewire...
    oh btw it's a morrisey cover, in case you didn't know...and it's obviously about newcomers being treated badly in the music industry. i don't think there are any secret meanings to this one.

    General CommentWow...really good Morrissey cover. This song is about how people in the music industry care about one thing, which is money. Morrissey is warning other bands that being big isn't all its cracked up to be. Those in the music industry will stop at nothing to rake in the cash without even taking into consideration the amount of stress it puts on the artist.

    General CommentIts not as good as the Morrissey version (but then again what Moz cover could ever be as good as the one true Moz) but I still enjoy it a whole lot. :)
