"Cattle" as written by Brian Vander Ark, Brad Vander Ark, A.j. Dunning, Doug Corella and Donny Brown....
boy there was a day an assortment of rhymes
and waving, we rode that parade for awhile
and everybody knew everybody

boy there was a day being lonely was hard
and then your attention was never enough

i don't really know anybody in love
i don't want to know anybody in love

and when the mouth is open grows a cancer
everybody wins
round and round and settle down, settle down

brand the herd of those who duplicate
and crush the wind of those who deviate
and ride the wave along the mitigated mile
ride the wave along the mitigated mile

    My InterpretationAlways liked this song a lot.
    I feel it's about how the market on love out there is more of a meat market than anything else, it's cattle call and everyones got a number on them and that's what it can feel like out there when your on the dating scene and it rather sucks the life out of you than makes you feel lonely
    especially in these times with internet dating sites and whatnot. There's little romance to it and longing when everyones parading themselves around like cattle and everyones wants to touch and prod everyone and get their fill. *And when the mouth is open grows a cancer everybody wins* this line in particular speaks to me. I feel it pertains to the bullshot lines that guys and gals feed to one another in order to get into their pants, when at bars and whatnot. Sometimes the line works and sometimes not but it's cancer cause the line means nothing it's got nothing but bad intentions behind it. And the Everybody Wins part of the line is just a bit of verve pipian biting sarcasm :)*Brand the herd of those who duplicate and crush the wind of those who deviate
    and ride the wave along the mitigated mile
    ride the wave along the mitigated mile*
    Everyone wants to look like everyone else, like cattle and there's no originality. Girls in short skirts and those who want to deviate get crushed for not blending instead of being applauded for their orginality.
