"Sabertooth Tiger" as written by Matt Shultz, Brad Shultz, Jared Champion, Daniel Tichenor and Lincoln Parish....
On the other side of town lives a sabertooth tiger
Paint's a real good picture, he's an excellent liar
His mouth is full of sand and he's dying to meet you
His mouth is full of sand he's just dying to meet you
On the other side of town lives a sabertooth tiger

Runaway runaway runaway from the beast
Got a bullet in your back and you're shaking at the knees
Runaway runaway runaway from the beast
Got a bullet in your back, runaway from the beast

Colder than an ice cube and faster than the fastest cheetah
He's hiding in the kitchen he's a right brain eater
His mouth is full of sand and he's dying to meet you
His mouth is full of sand he's just dying to meet you
On the other side of town lives a sabertooth tiger

Runaway runaway runaway from the beast
Got a bullet in your back and you're shaking at the knees
Runaway runaway runaway from the beast
Got a bullet in your back, runaway from the beast

He's a sabertooth tiger

Runaway runaway runaway from the beast
Got a bullet in your back and you're shaking at the knees
Runaway runaway runaway from the beast
Got a bullet in your back and you're shaking at the knees
Runaway runaway runaway from the beast
Got a bullet in your back and you're shaking at the knees
Runaway runaway runaway from the beast
Got a bullet in your back, runaway from the beast

    Song MeaningThis is a fantastic song about someone trying to use him / rip him off - probably smarmy record execs.

    "His mouth is full of sand and hes dying to meet you" contains a Biblical reference

    Proverbs 20:17
    Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterward his mouth shall be filled with gravel.

    "Bullet in your back" is less cliché than "knife in the back"

    Matt Schultz is an excellent songwriter and one of the most awesome performers I've ever witnessed.

    My InterpretationOne thing that wasn't mentioned that I was curious about was "right brain eater"

    There's a theory that people are left-brained or right-brained. Left-brained people are more analytic and methodical, while right-brained people are more creative and artistic.

    This "sabertooth tiger" eats up and exploits these creative types.
