"Madison" as written by and Jonathan Forrest Bates....
There's nothing to complain about
You are so useless when you're high
There's a big gap in your front teeth
You only look good when you're high

Whatever those girls at school did say
Don't believe them
They're just jealous of your awkward ways
Brush right past them in the hall

Already settled it and this time I'll handle it and
Bring them out back to me and I'll use the whipping tree

Is that the new style at school
I like to see you keeping up
I swear it gets better now
They'll never see you getting by

Whatever those girls at school did say
Don't believe them
They're just jealous of your awkward ways
Stab them right between the heart
You look so much better now

Already settled it and this time I'll handle it and
Bring them out back to me and I'll use the whipping tree

    General CommentThis song sounds to me about a guy who is older and in a relationship with a younger girl who is still in high school. The girl is still going through all the troubles of insecurities and using drugs to be "cool" and just everything that results in being in high school. The singer is older and just trying to ease the younger girl's mind. I can relate. I think the whole "bring them out back to me and I'll use the whipping tree" is just a mockery of being older and discipline.

    My InterpretationI thought that this song follows a flow that the first verse is "Whatever those girls at school did say". There really is something to complain about, there really is no gap in her teeth, and she probably only gets high to fit in if she even does. The rest of the song seems to be from the perspective of the singer, trying to get her to see her value. At the same time, he's pissed off at the "girls at school" and even offers to "take them out back", so to speak.
