"Dog and His Master" as written by and John K. Wozniak....
Hey little boy
See the Johnny and Janes
Hey little boy
You see them all go insane
Look and see Spot run
Cause he pissed in their hallway
Run Spot run
Run away from it all
And I say you can be anyway that you want to be
How I'll be that's up to me
Hey little girl
See them all run around
Hey little girl
You see them all tumble down
Johnny will boss
Janey will buy
Spot will beg
But everyone dies
As I said you can be
Any way that you want to be
How I'll be, that's up to me
One little, two little, three little idiots
Four little, five little, six little idiots
Seven little, eight little, nine little idiots
All in suit and tie
One little, two little, three little idiots
Four little, five little, six little idiots
Seven little, eight little, nine little idiots
All dressed up to die, and I say
You can be any way that you want to be
But how I'll be, that's up to me

    General CommentI think this song is about conformity...it's sort of obvious with the "you can be anyway that you wanna be, but how I'll be, well that's up to me" chorus

    General CommentI love the part "johny will boss, janey will buy, spot will beg, but everyone dies". it's kind of sad, we can be anyway we wanna be, but instead we just act like we're supposed to.

    Song Meaningno matter who you are and what mistakes you make, you die one day just like everyone else. "one little two little three little idiots.... all in suit and tie/dressed up to die" i think he has a very negative viewpoint of ppl that like to think theyre above others because of physical/superficial aspects. you can wear a nice suit, spend an hour combing your hair, wear a shit ton of makeup but, like the one armed man working in burger king, youre all going to the same place so why not look at everyone else in every class of life like a human, cuz thats exactly what you are as well.
