"Eat Shit and Die" as written by and Benjamin P Cooper Alexander P Kane....
We sat on the edge of the world and tossed things off
Said nothing and had no need to
Our bloody handprints smeared the refuge
And I don't think I knew at the time
That I'd be gone before I knew your name
But it didn't matter much in the end
'cause it all burned down

I was made to throw stones and darken doorways
To burn bridges, then fall and sleep it off
Those blank eyes can't read me
The more I sink, I'm free
To wreck them as I please
A big heart's an easy target
So cash your karma in
Because you're never gonna be like them
No matter how

Lay me down, pull my hopes from out my mouth
And with a little bit of luck
I'll leave behind all them doubts
I need to keep my feet from leaving the ground
'cause it's breaking me

    General CommentFor me this song is about living, or an absence of living - "Eat, Shit, and Die". I think this song directly links with Mr. Gone with the ending "Please keep from making any trouble". It's about someone who goes through life keeping their head down, staying out of trouble and never amounting to anything. In my view, anyway.

    General CommentProbably a useless comment, but I agree with the other person who commented. Also, this song reminds me of the Master and the Doctor from Doctor Who.
