"Are You Ready For The Fallout?" as written by and Tony Scalzo....
I was wondering how you're feeling
I thought I saw you kneeling
And holding your gut last night
It looked like you were praying
But I heard someone saying
You had been in an awful fight
You get the worst of it everytime
Lashing out with no reason or rhyme
To lose all this rage, at so tender an age
Little baby growing up in a rat cage

Are you ready for the fallout?
Who you gonna call out?
When does it finally come to blows?
I think that you're forgetting
The blood that you'll be letting
Has a price on it, no one knows it
You may be suffering in your sleep
You may be getting in too deep
And you may not care for advice that I share
If you want it then I'll be there

Soon you will learn how to swallow a tear
So when you're old you can cry in your beer
Do you spit at the face staring back in the mirror?
Do you have any self respect?

Soon you will learn how to swallow a tear
So when you're old you can cry in your beer
Do you spit at the face staring back in the mirror?
Do you have any self respect?

Well what the hell did you expect?

Are you ready for the fallout?
Who you gonna call out?
When does it finally come to blows?
I think that you're forgetting
The blood that you'll be letting
Has a price on it, no one knows it
You may be suffering in your sleep
You may be getting in too deep
And you may not care for advice that I share
If you want it then I'll be there

Are you ready for the fallout?
Who you gonna call out?

    General CommentI think it's about a drug addict and not wanting help and heading for the fallout. If it's not, it's still my favorite fastball song

    General CommentI've liked this song since the first time I heard it and it remains to be one of my favorite Fastball songs. It's just really catchy and you can listen to it over and over again and its just one of those songs that doesn't get old.

    General CommentI think this song is talking about being able to look ahead and think about the consequences of your actions. The singer is talking to someone who appears to continually use bad judgment ('you get the worst of it everytime'). It uses the context of a fight, but he's warning that every action can have its unforeseen consequence ('i think that you're forgetting the blood that you'll be letting has a price on it no one knows'). in a catalog full of absolutely fantastic lyrical and melodic songs, this has got to be up there as one of my all-time favorites! Who could have imagined that this came from one of the cheesiest movies of all-time??
