"What A Day" as written by and Ronald N./miller Miller....
A piece of mail
A letterhead
A piece of hair
From a human head

They're stayin' to me
"I should've killed it"
"I should've killed it"
"I should've killed it before"

You're right, you're right
"Kill the body and the head will die"
They're laughin' at me
"I should've learned it"
"I should've learned it"
"I should've learned it before"

What a day, what a day
If you can look it in the face
And hold your vomit

A wet sneeze and a "no left turn"
A row of teeth and an encouraging word
Beneath a mile of skin
"I should've noticed it"
"I should've noticed it"
"I should've noticed it before"

What a day
What a day
What a day
Don't you touch it

    My InterpretationWhen I listen to this I picture a police scene taped off where a detective is having a shitty day picking up the pieces of a gruesome murder. The cover art on King for a Day goes well with this song, maybe that's how I visualized this. Oh and Mike Patton kicks ass and takes names!

    General CommentWell, I think the chorus pretty muh sums it up: waking up and thinking "oh crap, what did I just do?"

    General Comment"Kill the body and the head will die" - reminds me of a Hunter S. Thompson quote.

    General Commentsounds like.. some sort of a disease, or a tumor, because of the dentist sounds.
    but what seems to have a "head", or a face?
