"A Shine To It" as written by and Laura Anne Stevenson....
I sold my blood to a hospital
but it wasn't very much blood so they didn't give me much money
they didn't give me much.

i thought that you might like this
because it's got a shine to it
i know you like shiny things so
i will try to buy it up for you
and drive to you.

i posed unclothed for an artist in his home
but i couldn't hold it long enough and he didn't like my body much so he didn't give me much.
i thought that you might like this
because it's got a shine to it
i know you like shiny things so
i will try to buy it up for you and drive

    General Commentshe's giving herself away and not getting much in return.
    blood=surrendering yourself to someone hoping for the same response in return, not getting what you deserved.
    undressing=vuneralbility. you're showing your true self and not being appreciated, or loved for who you really are.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about doing whatever she can to obtain money so she can buy something. What that thing is, I am not sure.

    General Commentwhen they released the bomb/laura split jeff made a comment about this song along the lines of "it's weird to cover a song by someone you know about someone else you know and a situation you were a part of." so. uh. i guess we could ask jeff at the next btmi show if they come around before/without laura?

    General CommentI think it's more of a metaphor. About not feeling good enough of a person inside or out to please anyone so you attempt to buy your way through love. Or maybe I just think too much.
