  • Lyrics
  • Singer Cormac Neeson told Kerrang! February 21, 2009 about the inspiration for this song: "I was thinking about when I was working back in a bar in Ireland and you'd see a lot of really beautiful young women coming into the bar and kinda drink themselves away all day and end up going home with some kind of f—king lowlife motherf—ker, who was just hanging around the bars waiting to pick up women like that. I just remember thinking these girls don't need to do that. They're beautiful, intelligent and they deserve a lot better."
