"43% Burnt" as written by and Dimitri Minakakis Benjamin Allen Weinman....
I smell that whore
Bring me back
Bring me a brick
Take my bottle
And break it
Pour it all out
I pushed you too far
Self absorb that pity
I want to knock you off your horse
I just feel it
Everything's fine
Spit on yourself
You're so beautiful
Crack and chip off
Like the sun won't, shine, down
Take your medicine like a champ
While that sting can last a million years
Self absorb that utopia
So bad
I just feel it

    General CommentThis song is about exploiting people sexually so you can become indulgent and self absorbed only to live a life in a state of overindulged self destructive mentality with everyone hating you bitterly and obsessively.

    General Comment"Self absorb that pity I want to
    Knock you off your horse"
    The person should feel sorry for themself (or ask for pity on them) - not the writer


    "Take your medicine like a champ"
    as in the saying "a taste of your own medicine" - it's probably payback or revenge for something.

    "While that sting can last a million years"
    The sting that he felt caused by this person, he knows it lasts a long time and he's giving it back to them.

    "Self absorb that utopia, so bad, I just feel it"
    This could be something like whatever the reason is that the person thought they were so good(or whatever their "utopia" was), it's faling away and now the writer feels it.
