"Vexed" as written by and Max Bemis....
Pay your respects to a greater intellect
You're just a pawn, does this confession turn you on?
I know your kind, you'd do me from behind
And when everybody stares, their eyes will bare the sharpest glare

Everybody knows beneath your clothes
Starring at your toes is just a pose
Everybody good knows how hard you blow
Everybody knows

You did me wrong, I grinned and played along
Those days are gone, does this confession turn you on?
I'd see you stoned, lawn chair to gilded throne
You cut your tiny ties and now you're dangling by a lie

Everybody knows beneath your clothes
Starring at your toes is just a pose
Everybody good knows how hard you blow
Everybody knows

You think you're Jesus Christ
You're not my Jesus Christ

    General CommentI kind of feel like this song is about a really conceited whore.
    "You're not my Jesus Christ" - one of the best lines ever.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this is my favorite song off In Defense of the Genre. It really reminds me of pre-is a real boy say anything.. which is really cool, since theres songs like this on IDotG, along with wayy newer-sounding ones like Baby Girl, I'm A Blur.... yeah im liking the new album a lottt actually.

    General CommentI thought this was a song about the girl who "saved" him from his mental illness. She reminded him of that constantly and acted as if she was his savior, thus the Jesus reference.

    General CommentMax is jewish, and during college, he said that he stopped believing in God when the drugs started getting heavier.

    Is he still jewish, or perhaps a borderline christian, or still atheist and/or agnostic...?


    great song.

    General CommentYep. The first time I read the lyrics to this song I thought of Max having a sexual experience with a Priest or Pastor, etc. I'll be the first to tell you that I don't follow the goings-on of the Jewish religion, so I don't know if Reconciliation is a part of it. But lines like "does this confession turn you on?" and "you think you're Jesus Christ", plus other seemingly sexual lyrics tell me that he's talking about some sort of Catholic Priest/young boy relationship. I really don't know what that has to do with the story line, so I'm not very confident that my thoughts are correct.
