A Fistful of Spite

"...Leave your judgement aside"

00:00 / 03:58

I'm sure anyone out there like me trying to "make it" in a creative industry has had their share of detractors. The people that think the one thing you give a shit about is just a hobby, that it will never amount to anything. As far as I'm concerned, if you're good at something and you put the work in, it'll happen. This song is huge middle finger to anyone that would belittle you for choosing to do something different. Don't make people feel bad just because your life didn't turn out the way you wanted.

The drumbeat was the first thing to come for this song, and the riff was written around it. It had the working title "Sugarfoot" for a while because I thought the drumbeat sounded like something Jonathan "Sugarfoot" Moffett (Michael Jackson's drummer) would have written.

A fistful of spite

No, I won’t bite

Yeah, you can leave your judgement aside

Because I won’t bite

You can say what I shouldn’t be

So I can prove what I’m meant to be

Follow me, follow me

Yeah, you can say (what I shouldn’t be)

 

A fistful of spite

No, I won’t bite

Yeah, you can leave your judgement aside

Because I won’t bite

Take it on the chin, and we’ll go for a ride

Take it all from him, and I’ll wear it with pride
