"The Ideal Husband" as written by and Joshua Tillman....
Julian
He's gonna take my files

Every woman that I've slept with
Every friendship I've neglected
Didn't call when grandma died
I spend my money getting drunk and high
I've done things unprotected
Proceeded to drive home wasted
Bought things to win over siblings
I've said awful things, such awful things

And now
Now it's out
And now
Now it's out

Julian
He's gonna take my files

Telling people jokes to shut them up
Resenting people that I love
Sleepin' 'til two then doin' shit
Just stay in bed and later lie 'bout it
Obsessing over greying hair
Knowing just what people wanna hear
Binging on unearned attention
I've said awful things, such awful things

And now
Now it's out
And now
Now it's out

I came by at seven in the morning
Seven in the morning, seven in the morning
I came by at seven in the morning
I said, "Baby, I'm finally succumbing"
Said something dumb like "I'm tired of running
Tired of running, tired of running"
Let's put a baby in the oven
Wouldn't I make the ideal husband?

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    General CommentJulian is Julian Assange, the guy who headed up Wikileaks. His website leaked Top Secret government documents that some say compromised national US security.

    So this song is joking that "Julian" is going to expose all of the singer's worst acts. Now everyone will know the worst things about him.

    Although, let's face it....just like the USA suspected shadiness going on, I think this guy's friends are already very aware that he has a few issues.

    Everyone likes to think they hide their shittiness so well, but guess what....now it's out. And it's always been out.

    General CommentI know Oscar Wilde wrote a play called 'An Ideal Husband', which, full disclosure, I have yet to read, but together with 'Being Earnest' is his most successful play. I've read through the play's Wikipedia page, and it seems to very much parallel the lyrics of this song. The play is about paying for your past sins, and being judged by your past. I am even willing to bet that it was an inspiration for this song.
