"Misinformed" as written by and Michael/steinberg Doughty....
His eyes go funny, you can't place why.
All dolled up in bellhop drag
It is like a burden to the beat, to the long gone
I was once misinformed about your intentions

Were you right to burn the rock star? Were you right to drop the roster?
On dollar bill, one dollar bill
Nah nah nah

    General CommentI think this may relate to the intentions of a drug dealer, he may have thought it was all about the money but now realizing it's for other reasons, "to burn the rock star" and the line about the eyes going funny and you can't place why, tipical excuse type thing, "oh well I couldn't understand why he's die after snorting that cocane and arsenic". and I do believe is it something you snort when he repeats over and over on dollar bill one dollar bill as dollar bills are often used to make lines/ snorting surface and to be rolled up into makeshift straws. As far as the bellhop drag, I'm not sure but I'm envisioning a military man as their uniforms can tend to look like that of a bellhops.

    General CommentDoughty's book is really bitter towards the rest of his band. By the time this song was written, they basically hated each other. He'd realized how much he got screwed out of his songwriting royalties, amongst other acts of disrespect and hazing, including the drummer intentionally refusing to play the same beat they'd came up with for the song.

    There was a situation where his drummer raked up hundreds of dollars on his hotel tab by making frivolous overseas calls and then charging them to Doughty.

    That's is what this song is about.
