"Bitch Went Nuts" as written by and Benjamin Scott Folds....
(The answer you seek my son only poses more questions.
Ask many women why relationship has failed.
Each woman offer unique reason for demise.
One woman may say, "man could not commit."
Or, "man is douche, and is now free to make love to himself instead."
Another woman may say, "man had changed,"
Or even, "man no longer satisfactory lover."
But my son, ask many men same question all over the world,
"Why has relationship failed?" Each man, each time, will give same, simple answer.)

The bitch went nuts.
She stabbed my basketball.
And the speakers to my stereo.
She called me 'cunt'
But nothing prepared me for
What I found when I came home.
Oh and I made my own bed. I lie in it.
You lie in yours. You lie, you lie, in yours.
But they want more, they're at my door with torches.
Please leave me alone, you know. Just shut it. Just shut it. Just shut it.

The bitch went nuts.
She photoshopped my face
Onto every boy who'd done her wrong.
And as she burned I telepathically into the brains of all her embittered rooms.
Oh, now, now they want more. They're at my door with torches. Scores, and scores, and scores to Settle with themselves.
You would have thought I'd scorned them all.
They've got a doll of me, they're burnin', they're burnin', they're burnin', they're burnin', they're burnin' their own memories.

Why do they all go?
Why do they all go?

The bitch went nuts, y'all.
But everyone said she might.
Holy fucking shit.
Seriously now.
Now they want more. They're at my door with torches.
Scores and scores.
You would have thought I'd scorned them all.
They've got a doll of me, they're burnin'.

Why do they all go?

    General CommentBen said at a concert in Kansas City on Oct 22, 2008 that the album version is about (pretty obviously) a guy who doesn't believe he could be at fault for the breakup. The fake version is about a young Republican lawyer. At this point the crowd booed, but Ben assured us that we would feel sorry for him by the end of the song. This young lawyer takes a date he doesn't know very well to the law firm's Christmas party. While there, the date does a line of coke. Within minutes, she starts spilling all her radical, flaming leftist liberal ideologies, ruining the young lawyer's career.

    I really like both versions actually.

    General CommentI wouldn't mind hearing the fake version.

    Is it just me, or does the song feel incomplete without the pre-track bit on the album?
    It took me a good ten minute to realise there was 30 seconds between Free Coffee and Bitch Went Nuts.

    General CommentBefore the release of his Way To Normal Album, Ben and his band recorded fake tracks to the album because they had time to kill. Ben had a friend "leak" the tracks on fan sites under the pretense that those were actual tracks that were to appear on the album. Later the fake tracks were added as b-sides and bonus tracks on the album. Many of the tracks have similar names to the official ones on the album. In his latest tour (I saw him last Saturday) he performed many of the "fake" songs as well as the official ones. :)
