Singled Out: Look Mexico's You Stay. I Go. No Following
There came a point, a little over a year ago, that we all finally became fed up with all the people who promised so many things yet delivered nothing. Of course, you encounter many people like this in life, but when it comes to music it seems like everyone wants a piece of the pie, no matter how small or individually sized that pie is.
It's hard to ignore someone when he or she insists he or she has something you need. Most the time (almost all the time), they don't. And they won't. So on behalf of the band, I wanted to thank all these individuals for everything they did for us. Absolutely nothing. I know it sounds harsh, but it's more of a growth as a band, saying "we'll take it from here," than a lash at anyone in particular.
The line "Credit where credit's due, now the Bureau is looking for me" is specifically talking about the huge pocket of debt we've sunk into. Spread over several cards in my and Smith's names, the band debt can get a little difficult to manage. One of the cards was sent to debt collection and the Credit Bureau came-a-lookin' for me. We've since consolidated everything and are working towards paying it all off, but we've got a ways to go.
Overall, the song is basically a big venting session. Not an "F You" by any means. Perhaps, instead a three and a half minute "good riddance."
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album - right here!
