"Bulls Make Money, Bears Make Money, Pigs Get Slaughtered" as written by and Hale Owens....
I'm right here in front of you and I can't stop sh-sh-shaking
I can't stop sh-sh-shaking. come on and hold me still

Did my heart love until now cause I feel as though
I've never seen beauty till this night
I'm forever, yeah, I'm forever yours.

You're wearing your skin like it's too tight.

And there she was; reflecting so brightly the warmth that she installs
And there she was; we were infinite for a moment

There's not one girl here that will be lead by her conscience
In a world where every girl wants to be a model
What's wrong babe? did daddy not give you enough attention.

Did my heart love until now cause I feel that
I've never seen beauty till this night
I'm forever, yeah, I'm forever yours

Take back what's mine. just leave me in it
And everything that I believe in.
She's shaking. she's shaking. please act surprised.
She's shaking. she's shaking. please act surprised.
She's shaking. she's shaking. please act surprised.
She's shaking. she's shaking.

And there she was; reflecting so brightly the warmth that she installs
And there she was; we were infinite for a moment
And there she was; we were infinite for a moment
And there she was; we were infinite for a moment

    General Commenti do not think it is as everyone is taking it...i am going to disect it how i think it is meant

    i think it is basically that he is floored by this one girl, however it seems like she is not as interested as he, because he has to let her know that he is there and also has to ask for her to hold him, it is not a given as it would be if the feeling was 100% mutual. (im right here in front of you,
    and i cant stop shaking come on and hold me still.)

    (did my heart love until now? cause i feel as though ive never seen beauty till this night. im forever, yeah, im forever yours.) the things he is trying to believe and tell her, because he thinks this is real. the words.

    next, i think that this line (youre wearing your skin like it's too tight) could necessarily mean that yes maybe she is thin, or maybe that she is holding everything in too much, and you can see that it would be everything because he says skin, and skin is the thing that holds the most back.

    (and there she was, reflecting so brightly the warmth that she installs. and there she was, we were infinite for a moment) this obviously is something perfect for him, but for some reason, the fact that she is holding back, it was only a moment

    with the (theres not one girl here that will be lead by her conscience in a world where every girl wants to be a model what's wrong babe? did daddy not give you enough attention) part, i feel like this is not directed towards her as it may be taken at first glance. i think he is saying that there isnt any other girl that has been there in the place she is in that has been lead by her conscious, just her and only her. and the attention part is focused towards those who have been that way, who have let their conscious fall and loose their morals.

    and with the screaming part (take back whats mine. just leave me in it and everything that i believe in) i think it is meant that even though she is not sure with his feelings that he gave her, and she is pushing them back at him, he wants her to still have them, and he wants to keep pushing the fact and trying to believe.

    okay theres my little rant about this song. i would take it for the superficial way, but we all know that their songwriting is always on a deeper level than that. anyone agree with any of this?

    General CommentSounds like a guy who sees the most beautiful girl he's ever laid eyes upon. But she's self conscious, and uncomfortable ("you're wearing your skin like it's too tight"-- not comfortable in her own body, wanting to be something that she's not; wanting to be a "model", but feeling like she doesn't look good enough)

    General Commentthe meaning is pretty straight forward, at least to me

    and it goes "Whats wrong babe? Did daddy not give you enough attention?"

    the CD is eh for me right now

    General Commentcould craig's voice go any higher? honestly. haha, but yeah he's amazing.
    as for the meaning of the song, i sort of get the feel that the girl he likes has a shaken past or is self consious? what the hell, that was a total shot in the dark, but yeah. close enough, i guess.

    General Commenti think the song is about a guy who is kinda mediocre falls for a girl who is stuck on herself. the whole 'did daddy not give you enough rejection' says that shes been taught she is the best.

    so yea he falls for her and is nervous and stuff, but is also proud he is the one she "installed"

    the whole "shes shaking" could possibly be that he broke up with her to make her egotistic ways stop? thats just a guess though. Great album, i havent been able to put it down...
