"Die, All Right!" as written by and Randy Fitzsimmons....
Hey! I've got a message and tonight and I'm gonna send it.
Yeah! I had a body and men with knives wanted to lend it.
Sold my body to the company
So I got the money now away I go and I say thank you Mr. CEO.
Hey! I've got some money and tonight I'm gonna spend it.
Yeah! They gave me a paper
And I went ahead and penned it and I say thank you Mr CEO.
I filled my pockets now I might as well -
Die! cause I found the backdoor out of teenage hell - all right!
Filed my account cause I might in fact - Die!
But I rely on science, yeah to bring me back - all right.
I.....'m gonna die....
Heavy morals seem so light but when it comes to cash I'm gonna die all right!
Hey! I lost the money seems like I can't comprehend it.
Yeah! Got a hole in my head gotta gotta mend it.
Too messed up to sit and settle down.
Too messed up to even mess around.
That's why your smiling Mr CEO.
I filled my pockets now I might as well -
Die! cause I found the backdoor out of teenage hell - all right!
Filed my account cause I might in fact - Die!
But I rely on science, yeah to bring me back - all right.
I.....'m gonna die.... but not right now
Yeah why don't you do the same?
I got the money now I can't complain.
Except the tics won't go away oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no!
And the way I feel tonight is gonna make me die all right.

Teenage hell - all right!
Filed my account cause I might in fact - Die!
But I rely on science, yeah to bring me back - all right.
I.....'m gonna die....
Heavy morals seem so light but when it comes to cash I'm gonna die all right!

    General Commentum, i'm not sure why everyone thinks this song is about pharmaceutical testing.

    i think it's just about selling your soul for money, particularly in show business. you sign your name/life away for cash...

    "found the backdoor out of teenage hell"

    i think it refers to just becoming rich. a lot of musicians aspire to be rich from a tender age.

    maybe they are even referring to themselves or anyone else in the business that may be selling out for cash. there's a teeny bit of regret, or guilt... "except the tics won't go away." but in the end they push it away, brush it off, "i'm gonna die alright!"

    General Commentthis isn't about selling your body for science...it's about the man and the little guy..like a lot of hives songs....selling yourself to a company, you work hard, slowly loose your soul, you don't know how much of yourself you can sell and stay alive....but you cant complain because you have money now and your not dead yet and your willing to see how far you can push it for the sake of money.....long story short: you need money, sometimes you going to loose yourself to get it...

    General Commentdammit, no-one has posted anythin here? Its a shame, cos right now the hives are pretty much the most exiting thing that has happened to music in a very long time. Ok its fair to say that maybe they are not bringing anything new to the rock scene, but these guys sure know how to write a song, and they will blow you away live. This is by far my favourite song by them.

    General CommentThis song seems to mean that he has a problem with spending money. And that he uses it to buy things to help him escape "teenage hell". That is why he says thank you mr.ceo because he is basically referring to the company that gave him money to screw his self up. JUST MY OPINION I COULD BE WRONG!!!!

    General CommentHmm.. this song rules, the riff is easy - but so hooky it stays in my head all day. The Hives rule I don't care how easy it is.
