"Spitting Fire" as written by and Todd Howe Nathan Nicholson....
What the rest did
I was average
But I dont mind
Drawn on two sides without disguise.
But I dont mind
But I spit fire on lovers and liars
And you, you dont believe me
And I, I find it easy
Easy
You're recruited
Head diluted through a glass eye
Dreams in fiction
Lost religion
But I dont mind
Cause I spit fire on lovers and liars
And you, you dont believe me
And I, I find it easy
Easy
Easy
What the rest did
I was average
But I dont mind
Runs on no sleep
Drawn to defeat
But I dont mind
And I, I spit fire on lovers and liars
And you, you dont deceive me
And I, I find it easy
Easy

    General CommentCan't make much sense of most of the lyrics. But I get the intuition that this song is about being on the wrong end of a break up and actually being better for it "And you, you don't believe me
    And I, I find it easy, easy." This song is unique for the boxers because of it's positive nature, pretty much all of their other songs are darker, lonely and sad, but this one really has puts a jump in your step. The acoustic version of this song is gorgeous: youtube.com/… I'd like to hear what others think this song is about!

    General CommentDissing television, perhaps;

    "What the rest did, I was average" => all the 'super' people that are portrayed on television that most people just can't measure up to

    "Your recruited head diluted through a glass eye" => a recruited head is one that buys into all the sensationalism and fabrications of television, the glass eye

    "Dreams in fiction, lost religion" => a reference to how television is so commonly used as forms of excapism or an excuse for one's own shortcomings

    "Runs on no sleep, drawn to defeat" => a television never needs to sleep and, again, the sensationalism of tv with an emphasis on its morbidity (drawn to defeat)

    "But I don't mind/ But I spit fire on lovers & liars/ And you don't believe me... And you don't deceive me/ And I find it easy" => Despite the prevalence of tv sensationalim, I don't mind because I can avoid/ignore it; 'spitting fire' is disregarding/discounting/resisting the draw of escaping into the alternate realities of television, alternate realities populated by 'lovers & liars'; the television & it's 'lovers & liars' don't (can't) listen to and therefore believe the singer, but the singer doesn't have to be deceived by it either- and he (she) finds it easy not to be deceived
