Story

Yes, as you can probably tell, this is one of the many songs inspired by the shooting of Dimebag Darrell. The chorus came along long before it happened, and I believe the song works for other meanings, but there's no denying the Dimebag connection.

Lyrics

F'D UP IN THE HEAD SO YOU WANNA BE A STAR, UP ON THE STAGE, SHOUTING IN A BAR AND TO YOU IT'S SO MUCH MORE, DO YOU FINALLY HEAR IT AS YOU'RE LYING ON THE FLOOR? DID YOU SUFFER FROM ABUSE? WHAT WAR DID YOU GO THROUGH TO GIVE YOU THIS EXCUSE? IS YOUR FAMILY ALL DEAD? TELL ME HOW'D YOU GET SO FUCKED UP IN THE HEAD? DID SOMEONE TAKE AWAY YOUR DOLL, ALL YOU HAD TO CLING TO, THEY TOOK IT ALL AND YOUR NEW DADDY DIDN'T CARE, WALKED AWAY AGAIN, SO YOU WOULDN'T SHARE REPEAT CHORUS LAST CHORUS: YOU DIDN'T SUFFER FROM ABUSE, NO WAR THAT YOU WENT THROUGH TO GIVE YOU THIS EXCUSE, YOUR FAMILY IS FROM DEAD, SO TELL ME HOW'D YOU GET SO FUCKED UP IN THE HEAD, TELL ME HOW'D YOU GET SO FUCKED UP IN THE HEAD? TELL ME HOW'D YOU GET SO FUCKED UP IN THE HEAD

Story

This song is a cover, done by everybody from Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson, Burl Ives, the Blues Brothers to the Outlaws.

Lyrics

GHOSTRIDERS IN THE SKY An old cowboy went riding out one dark and windy day Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way When all at once a mighty herd of red eyed cows he saw A-plowing through the ragged sky and up the cloudy draw Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel Their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky For he saw the Riders coming hard and he heard their mournful cry Yippie yi Ohhhhh Yippie yi yaaaaay Ghost Riders in the sky As the riders loped on by him he heard one call his name If you want to save your soul from Hell a-riding on our range Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride Trying to catch the Devil's herd, across these endless skies Yippie yi Ohhhhh Yippie yi Yaaaaay Ghost Riders in the sky

Story

Some how this song turned into a bowling song. It's inspired by Fred Flinstone and John Goodman on Roseanne and the Big Lebowski.

Lyrics

GUTTERBALL VERSE 1; You're watching my form, I go against the norm--style, skill, and power, the hand has struck the hour The wind up and the swing, the bells will start to ring, knock you back in your chair, barney rubble best beware CHORUS: Ain't no strike that comes for free You've got to work to be like me I know you want those pins to fall but Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah It's another gutterball VERSE 2; You're slick with fancy shoes, mamma didn't tell you the news I go bowling with my spouse, blue collar rules this house. You throw but got no aim, my shirt has got a stain, you're ball is shiny black better go take it back REPEAT CHORUS VERSE 3: My belly's out to here , play between every beer, nacho cheese, it is mine I sink em every time, Here comes you're final frame don't put you're team to shame Now where've you gone to hide It's rolling to the side!!! REPEAT CHORUS

Story

I actually had a friend that told me this story of his childhood, (or something close to it). Yes they actually gave him speed to slow him down. Stranger things have happened.

Lyrics

HYPERACTIVE THE THINGS WE DO, WE CAN'T TAKE BACK, MY WIFE GAVE BIRTH WHILE SMOKING CRACK AND FOR THE BLESSED EVENT, I WAS HIGH AS THE RENT I WAS ONLY SMOKING WEED, SURPRISED I COULD COME UP WITH SEED TO BRING THIS BOY UP TO THIS WORLD, AND WHY CHORUS: HYPERACTIVE, THEY SAY MY BOY IS WILD HYPERACTIVE, HE RUNS INTO WALLS , THIS CHILD IS HE DESTINED FOR RITALIN, CAUSE NOW IT'S SPEED THEY'RE GIVING HIM, TO MAKE HIM SLOW DOWN TO WALK AWHILE I DON'T SEE THEM ANYMORE, THEY SAY MY SON STEALS FROM THE STORE, TO GIVE HIM AND HIS SISTER CLOTHES AND FOOD. THE GROCER TURNS THE OTHER CHEEK, HE KNOWS HIS MOM AND DAD ARE WEAK, AND THE BITCH SAYS I'M A DEADBEAT SO SHE SUED. REPEAT CHORUS TWO MORE KIDS SURVIVE DIVORCE, AND THE MOTHER'S GOT A BRAND NEW PORSCHE, HER SECOND EX AND I SUPPLY THE GAS. THEY SAY MY BOY IS DOING WELL, BUT I KNOW HIS LIFE'S A LIVING HELL, AND I MISS HIM AND LIFE GOES BUY SO FAST REPEAT CHORUS

I’M NOT EVEN JOKING, BEEN DOING TOO MUCH SMOKING (2X) I’M NOT EVEN LISTENING, CAUSE ALL I HEAR IS BITCHING (2X) AND I’M PISSED OFF AGAIN REPEAT CHORUS I’M SORRY FOR THESE EMPTY WORDS, APOLOGIES ARE FOR THE BIRDS, I’M SORRY THAT I’M SORRY ALL THE TIME!
