"Black Bubblegum" as written by and Benjamin A Weinman Greg Puciato....
Got so much salt from your lies
Poured into me
You didn't see yourself dead already
So full of shit with every breath that you breathe
But you forget that in your fairy tale I'm the wolf
All this attention got you thinking that you're a queen
You think that everything you're doing isn't a dream
As long as it feel alright

I had gotten frozen by the way you walked
By the love that you gave, by that look on your face
It's a coverup
I know everything

You're made for four letter fame
Regret is part of your name
There's something you couldn't tell
It's what you wanted to feel
It's what you're dying to feel

Check out your face on the wall
Like what you see?
I'm sure you see yourself oh so unique
You're just a sucker for the flame of the week
But you forget that in your fairy tale bitch I'm the wolf
All this attention got you thinking you were a queen
You thought that everything in life you want should be free
Nothing is what you think

    General CommentAre you saying that beastly hulk is emo? :D
    No, but seriously these are some fine lyrics, not really deep, but well written about a girl that he... well let's say he doesn't like her much. The first line you quoted is awesome. Obviously this isn't your average dillinger song, some may be disappointed but i like the way the entire new album fits together, and it shows these are great musicians comfortable playing anything and I admire them for that.

    General CommentI think this song is sort of based around the image that a popular girl in school builds for herself. Since she's popular she feels that she needs to date the captain of the football team, etc. The guy dating her, however, really just lusts for her and she doesn't realize that the feeling is not mutual.
    "But you forget that in your fairy tale I'm the wolf

    He's a wolf, a predator for her. She thinks since she has been paid attention to with the other popular guy that she is living the high life.

    General CommentWhy does every good band turn into another shitty one that writes songs about "girls they don't like"?

    General CommentI like this song, very real in its delivery. and BTW saviorsalvation213, a band is not shitty if it writes about issues that are important to them.

    General CommentWow. I have to admit, these guys can write some catchy-as-fuck songs as well as some of the most aggressive tunes in extreme music. I guess that's why I like bands like The Dillinger Escape Plan. Versatility.

    Whine more

    I know what I'm sick of is people who try saying what a band's place is.
    "Sorry guys, but you can't write and play songs like this, because it isn't you"
    Nice job

    General Commentyep, I'll be whining while your listeing to this half ass garbage instead of their real shit. You wanna hear a band that released a good heavy fucking cd last year, check out Summer of Wolves by The Minor Times. Makes this shit look like Pete Wentz's dirty shorts. Although the vocalist already kinda took care of that with this song.

    General CommentSummer of Wolves was decent. No offense. Like it was okay, but not something to be going around comparing things to like its the best thing ever to exist.
    How about you go and find someone who actually likes Dillinger Escape Plan in a mall or something and say something like that to them, right??
    It would be a much better use of your time than complaining over the internet.
    I mean if you want to bitch here, why not for real??
    Hopefully someone will hit you or something. ^-^
