"Bag of Hammers" as written by and Thao Nguyen....
I am all in a ball
In your front yard
I have this bag of hammers
And I won't ask to come in
'Cause I have sold everything
Still I have, have got some manners

And there's a hole in your head
Spilled your thoughts on the floor
We wanted you bad
You wanted it more
The trick is
You do not get on that interstate bus
The catch is
You stay and see what becomes of us

Shake, shake, shake, shake the frame of this house
Distress the wood, make it shout
And as sharp as I sting, as sharp as I sing
It still soothes you, doesn't it?
Like a lick of ice cream

I am all in a ball
In your front yard
I have this bag of hammers
And I won't ask to come in
'Cause I have sold everything
Still I have, have got some manners

Shake, shake, shake, shake the frame of this house
Distress the wood, make it shout
And as sharp as I sting, as sharp as I sing
It still soothes you, doesn't it?
Like a lick of ice cream

    General CommentI think this song is about getting back at someone who you feel deeply did you wrong, or maybe someone who led you on

    My InterpretationTo me it sounds like she's outside her ex's house and has all of these negative things to say (the bag of hammers) but she won't go inside because she still has her manners. Previously, they maybe had a discussion which ended with her partner leaving (on the interstate bus).
    And from "Shake, shake..." to "...ice cream" it seems like her anger toward her ex pleases them.
