"Criticism as Inspiration" as written by and David Shannon Bazan....
I saw in your bedroom, the drawers had been emptied.
Looking for answers but you won't admit it now
You don't need a reason
That's what you tell me but I still don't buy it.
You drink yourself silly night after night

It makes me feel so good to always tell you when you're wrong.
The big man that I am to always have to put you down
Put you down

Then there's your girlfriend
She opens her legs and gives your life meaning.
Is that what you love her for?
The angel is always looking down
He's perfect without frown, the bully always wins.

It makes me feel so good to always tell you when you're wrong.
The big man that I am to always have to put you down
Put you down

It makes me feel so good to always tell you when you're wrong
The big man that I am to always have to put you down
It makes we look so good to always put you in your place
I can write it in a song but never say it to your face
To your face
