Handcuffed to the bar
Their buddies jerked back and forth
You watch the band finish their set
They look like sharks swimming in their swells
The feedback starts and the singer yells
"I'd rather die than give you control"
But he's already sold the whole damn thing
For a big loan

I stepped out for a light
Stepped out for a smoke
In the parking lots you're all going for a broke
You've been marinated in whiskey and gin
You say we're all friends, now it runs down your chin

Oh yes, we're all friends now
Oh yeah, we're all friends now
We're all friends now

Oh yes, we're all friends now
Oh yeah, we're all friends now
We're all friends now

    General CommentEver been to a dive bar where the band's lead singer's lyrics "defy authority" when you know damn well they want to make it big and blow money on blow and decadence? This song is the recount of a typical bar experience, to the T. People get drunk and all of a sudden it's One Love. They wake up and'll be the guy that cuts you off in traffic and yells at you, or the boss that couldn't help but hurt you. Heh.

    General CommentIt's "bodies" not "buddies". This song is rumored to be about NIN singer Trent Reznor ("I'd rather die than give you control" from Head Like A Hole) and how he sold out etc.
