"Rudie Fails" as written by and Alexander Joseph Even Stephen Daniel Patterson....
There a way to make it out in time
Keep the cash under the mattress
They're down in the streets
Run for cover

And if you're moneys ain't no good that's fine
While everyone's duking it out and taking names
Well Ill just take a number
'Cause I

No I don't care at all
No I don't care at all, no no no
No I don't care at all!
Nah!

And if there's any consolation
I never got mine so
While your out you're taking name
And taking orders

Theyr'e all
Too cheap
Oh relax
Take yr seat
Now were all laughing
Our sleeps
When its over
Cause I

No I don't care at all
No I don't care at all, no no no
Yeah you could beat the
Living daylights
Right out of me
I don't care at all

No I don't care at all
No! No! No!
I see you running for to knife
I feel so sorry for you
No I don't care at all!
I see you running for to knife
I feel so sorry but I
I don't care at all

    My InterpretationAs far as I (and a few friends) can tell, this songs seems to refer to the events (and their aftermath) of September 11th, 2001. The first stanza appears to detail the events (including "[making] it out in time," people "down in the streets," and the instruction to "run for cover"). The second stanza mentions people "duking it out and taking names," possible referring to the subsequent war in Afghanistan, and the narrator taking a number, possibly referring to victims of the attacks becoming statistics, thereby losing their names. In the second verse, he says, "if there's any consolation, I never got mine," which (along with the second stanza line "if you're money ain't no good that's fine") could be a reference to the 1.8 million dollars average compensation given to victim's families.
