"Bullfighter Jacket" as written by Charlie Brand and Rick Schaier....
There's nothing for me here at home
Everything I need is with you out east
I can't wait any longer
No one seems to understand
How I long to be in the palm of your hand
I can't wait anymore

Pale skin, a black bow in your hair
I know that you're half crazy
But I don't care

You've got your bullfighter jacket on
Nothing beneath
I had to take my mask off
To kiss you in the street
Summer turns to fall
My head's up on your wall

Nothing seems to stay the same
I'm terrified to lose you but more afraid to change

Summer's here you're taking off your clothes
Take my skin to add to your collection

You've got your bullfighter jacket on
Nothing beneath
I had to take my mask off
To kiss you in the street
Summer turns to fall
My head's up on your wall

    General CommentReally love this band and this song.
    I think the bullfighter jacket/nothing beneath is about having a tough/ "i don't care" exterior so as to hide true feelings, and I think the "you" in the "you've got your bullfighter jacket on" really refers to the person telling the story.
    "I had to take my mask off to kiss you in the street" of course means they had to strip away their pride and ego and just face up to having feelings for this person.
    Also love the "I know you're half crazy but I don't care"-- who isn't half crazy, anyway.
