"The Art of Moderation" as written by David Alexander John Mcpherson, Gregory Allen Mcpherson and Ben Konstantinovic....
You're walking on a broken foot this time
The divine becomes the deprived
You're making yourself look aged
(Head down and suck on the syphon)
The words "game" and "over" never rang so true
The insanity gets thicker
"I'm not an addict, I just enjoy getting fucked up"

The men twiddle thumbs with their fingers in their gums
They couldn't stay at home
The art of moderation versus pure temptation
Their mouths will foam
Whilst the people all around them go hungry
Little fishy got away this time

You've pissed in your own swimming pool this time
Well I can be a prick too
I get wasted, I get jealous and talk a load of shit
(Pucker up, and suck on the shotgun)
You tremble and you sweat and the horror fills you
Impatience creeping through your veins
The memories of the buzz still slowly drains

The men twiddle thumbs with their fingers in their gums
They couldn't stay at home
The art of moderation versus pure temptation
Their mouths will foam
Whilst the people all around them go hungry
Little fishy got away this time

The men twiddle thumbs with their fingers in their gums
They couldn't stay at home
The art of moderation versus pure temptation
Their mouths will foam
Whilst the people all around them go hungry
Little fishy got away this time

    General CommentI reckon this song deals with addicts of some sort. Possibly drug addicts and the way they are too hooked and in a vicious cycle.

    General CommentI'm assuming the addiction in question too, is alcoholism. I mean if you think of the title, we're always told to "drink in moderation," and in that light I think it makes sense.....also, "little fishy got away this time," if you drink like a fish, chances are you're an alcoholic.
    Just my idea...
