Get your bravery from a six pack
Get your bravery from a half-pint
Drink your whiskey, drink your grain
Bottoms up, and you don't feel pain

Go out and fight, fight
Bottled Violence

Lose control of your body
Beat the shit out of somebody
Half-shut eyes don't see who you hit
You don't take any shit

Go out and fight, fight
Bottled Violence

    General CommentExactly how you feel?...this song is about how he does not encourage drinking because it just causes trouble..."Lose control of your body
    Beat the shit out of somebody
    Half-shut eyes don't see who you hit
    You don't take any shit "

    General Commentthe song is obviously about how people who drink and then fight people are dumb. "get your bravery from a six pack" probably means that they're only brave if they're drunk. really good song.

    General CommentAnother FALSE rumour.
    It's about the knuckleheads who'd only go to shows to get drunk and beat each other up, who'd go get drunk so they'd go out and do stupid things to make them feel like 'men'. I know what he's talkin about, i know plenty of people who go out and drink because they don't like who they are, and for some reason they preffer being drooling, incoherent violent slobs. Anyway, that's what i think Ian's saying. That's what the song means to me.

    General Commentpossibly the greatest 54 seconds of hardcore. this is just pure satire of the binge drinking culture - and the kind of drug that alcohol generally is. you go out to get hammered, lose your judgment, start fights that you wouldnt normally start. just generally reflecting mackayes views on drink
