My mother says you were
A body in the rain
A rotting corpse found in the gallows
I wan to take you home
I wan to play dress up
I wan to show you off!
Oh, oh!

I tried some puppeting
I used some rope and string
Nothing could make you dance like
How you used to
I admit that I flipped out
I tossed your bones about
How your soul came down
You taught me, you told me secrets

How we're fed chemicals
By diabolicals
Tiny little shits in suits
Who do not give a fuck

And when our bodies fail
Guess who will have pills to sell
Those tiny little shits in suits
Who do not give a fuck

We're force fed chemicals
By diabolicals
Tiny little shits in suits
Who do not give a fuck

When our bodies fail
Guess who will have pills to sell
Those tiny little shits in suits
Who do not give a
Do not give a
Do not give a
Do not give a!!!

    General CommentHoly SHIT. This song is so fucking good.

    It's just spastic and crazy... and it just makes you want to get up and dance.

    The ending and how it flows right into the filler track makes me shiver with delight.

    General Commenthaha great message.
    This song is called Dress Up on teh record though even though it's been known as Shits In Suits for so long, I guess the Shits in Suits didn't want shits in the title lol.

    General CommentTo bad the kid's comment above me is lame.
    This song is about pharmaceutical companies.
    Hence the "Guess who will have the pills to sell".
    Pharmaceutical companies are infamous for not caring about the users of theirdrugs, only about profits.
    Clear things up?

    General Comment*The song meaning*
    the song deals with a relationship, he controls the relationship, he aslo controls her and telling her nothing can make you be like you use to be

    General CommentThe last verse really seems to be about pharmaceutical companies, but how do the first two relate?

    General Commentthe first two

    haha

    the guy find a dead body on a rope on the gallows
    thinks its a friend
    hence
    play dress up...

    tried puppeting...


    maybe he knew the body
    since
    "nothing could make you dance like how you used to"





    the body was no fun
    got tossed around
    ghost of the body scolds the finder

    General CommentI was thinking that this was about this guy's lover or friend who died. And I think that all of the first two lyrics are symbolic of how he's trying to get over her and how he's been striving to go on through life without her. but it won't work. He said that he "WANTS to take [her] home" but he can't. and as far as the puppeting goes, that's when he's trying to get back to the way things were. and then it kind of reflects his anger towards the pharmeceutical companies because that would be how she died. like an overdose?
    hehe, that's my twisted opinion. but I can be wrong. I'm wrong a lot. >.<
