"Ugly on the Inside" as written by and Michael Kinsella....
The lightening in this room
Doesn’t do a thing for you and your complexion

I’m sorry but it’s the truth
You look like the goddamn living dead

But honestly I don’t care
How you do or don’t your hair

You’re ugly on the inside

The makeup that you use to catch some eyes
And hide your imperfections
Does little to conceal
An ego that’s been bruised many times
But you’ve left it at home
With your underwear

But honestly I don’t mind
Who you do or don’t today

You’re still ugly on the inside

You’ve got time to change

Now go ahead and drink those drinks
Drunk again
Someone will drive you home

    General CommentLol I don't think mike goes out at night made up and without wearing underwear.

    Reading comprehension is good.

    It's about some self absorbed woman

    Clearly that's not the issue. However, I also don't think that it's beyond him to write a song about himself from another point of view. I mean, give the man some credit at least, he's brilliant.

    Great song, can't wait to (hopefully) hear it live in a few weeks

    General CommentIf anyone has an mp3 of this song I'm desperate to get my hands on it, since it's been deleted from the MySpace player I haven't been able to find it anywhere.
