"Rx Contender The Pretender" as written by and Forrest Trabue....
we think they got how they wanted to feel
then discovered five minutes til wedlock,
all the mirrors were cracked
the suns setting
bring out the rum
we heard that brownnosing bridesmaid
she said that someone's second guessing
so bring out the rum
this love is a reaction to indifference

angels pass this over like some biblical fall out

in sensing something socially mechanical
who's playing angles
when sometimes things are held too clinical
bullshitters, they (we) say there's two type of men that chase their lovers
the one who cries and the one who's too stubborn

we think we're getting how we want to feel
and in no way will it suffer
we're still drinking
so bring out the rum
they're going to show us a good time
with or without a ceremony
bring out the rum!
some love is a devotion ot indifference

we're verified by a number
you're talking to failure
we buccaneered our mild manners just to be here

what you don't believe or see now you will know later
i idolize this man that you will know later
we got a ways to go before we idolize this man
i think we should go because i'm sensing something......

    General CommentThis song personifies the machine that is society. There are two people that are getting married and really don't love each other but, are going to get married anyway. They are depressed about it and are getting cold feet so, they break out the rum to make it easier to deal with.
    -Too bad they have broken up. What a great band!!
