"For All The Cows" as written by and David Grohl....
I'm called a cow
I'm not about
To blow it now
For all the cows

It's funny how money allows all to browse
And be endowed
This wish is true it falls into pieces new
The cow is you

My kind has all run out, as if kinds could blend
Some time if time allows, everything worn in
Like it's a friend

I said you're all a painted doll and it caused
The walls to fall
How far is he?
Impatiently
That's as far as far can be

    General CommentI think this song is about people. Like hollywood people or something and he phrases them as cows. "my kind has all run out" like his kind of "cows" (people) aren't around anymore. "you're a painted doll" pretty much fake.

    General CommentI think it's about someone who has ba dream of becoming an A-List celeb or what you want to call them, and they forget where they came from or the people who put them where they are.

    General CommentI think cows are a metaphor for people and how they are corrupted easily.
