"Bad Education" as written by Kianna Alarid, Neely Jenkins, Jamie L Williams, Derek Pressnall and Nicholas White....
Oh, pretty boy
You found it hard to really find out what felt right
You wanna be a pretty girl, you hunt at night
The streets, your urgency to bleed
You bruised up both your knees
While rifling through women's jeans
'Cause the attraction's always high
Sparkle in the sparkle fire
The grittiest of grimes, your clothes are ruined
You're running in the wild, almost carrying a child
You got your kite so high, I think you flew it
I know it, I think you knew it

Now it's all bad education
Feeling fine, I'm feeling patient
Girls and boys and full frustration
St. valentine, I think I taste it
Tugging at the seat belt
I'm jumping out the saddle
I'm shuffling my feet around
I'm kneeling at the steeple
Will my heart teeter, tatter?
Iâ??m a believer, I'm solid matter

Oh, pretty girl
You turned it on, you turned it out, it all felt off
That's how it is, that's how it was
You searched it all so well, underwater in a well
You smeared on cool lips while checking off a checked off list
The situation's never kind, feathering a dance-hall stride
You're playing with the craziest locomotive
You broke your fingers in the climb
Scuffed the ball, you're pretty shy
You've got your air so thin
I think you blew it, did I blow it?
You fell into it

Now it's all bad education
Feeling fine, I'm feeling patient
Girls and boys and full frustration
St. valentine, I think I taste it
Tugging at the seat belt
I'm jumping out the saddle
I'm shuffling my feet around
I'm kneeling at the steeple
Will my heart teeter, tatter?
I'm a believer, I'm solid matter
Hey, I think I faked it, oh did I fake it?

Oh boy, you look so good
Oh, when you fake it
Hey, I think I made it, oh did I make it?
You tried so hard, boy, you better make it
I think I'll take it, oh, should I take it?
Oh, pretty girl, I don't think you can take it
I think I hate it, oh, do I hate it?
I taste it, I taste it

Now it's all bad education
Feeling fine, I'm feeling patient
Girls and boys and full frustration
St. valentine, I think I taste it
Tugging at the seat belt
I'm jumping out the saddle
I'm shuffling my feet around
I'm kneeling at the steeple
I'm tugging at the seat belt
I'm jumping out the saddle
I'm shuffling my feet around
I'm kneeling at the steeple

I hope you feel it in your hands
I hope you feel it in your hands
I hope you feel it in your hands

    General CommentI watched Bad Education tonight. It's a spanish movie, very interesting. It's about two boys who fell in love in Catholic school, one of them being abused by a priest. They were seperated by the priest, and in the future, the boy is a crossdresser, trying to get money to get the sex change after he goes to drug rehab. He writes a sort of memoir about his life and the school and then blackmails the priest, saying he needs a million dollars or he'll publish it. The priest (no longer a priest) ends up falling in love with Ignacio's (the crossdresser, name may not be correct, but it's close) younger brother Juan who starts a relationship with him. Ignacio is causing trouble with everyone, taking money, and Juan and the ex-priest finally decide to kill him. They do so with pure white heroin. Juan then pretends to be Ignacio and takes the story to the boy Ignacio was in love with in school, Enrique, and requests to make a movie out of it. In the book, there is a character Ignacio becomes, Zahara, who is his female form. Enrique is highly suspicious of Juan and doesn't fully believe he is Ignacio. Juan wants to play Zahara in his film, but Enrique says no. Enrique does some investigating and finds out Ignacio is dead and Juan has been impersonating. He doesn't tell him he knows and decides to shoot the film, because in Ignacio's last letter before his death he talks about how he'd love to see it on screen. They film the entire movie, adapting the end to where the priest actually does participate in Ignacio's on-screen death. The ex-priest sneaks onto the set, sees this, and talks to Enrique, confessing everything. The ex-priest finds Juan again and tells him he won't leave him alone. Juan threatens to kill him and then leaves with a wardrobe girl, who he later marries. He becomes very famous. Enrique is a successful director. The ex-priest is killed by Juan (under his acting name, Angel.)

    It was a very interesting movie.

    See any similarities? Song was named after movie.

    General CommentI pre-ordered Bottoms of Barrels and cannot wait to get it in. I'm restraining myself from downloading their new songs, however I needed at least one to hold me over until I receive the cd. So I have been listening to this song non-stop. Simply amazing; they always were. In this song you can really hear how they've evolved. I will be dancing around to their beautiful music until I break a hip. Even then, I'll still wave my hands in delight :)
