That's my kinda story, it's no fun til someone dies. The lyrics in this song are so accurate, everyone is enraptured by other humans going through awful stuff, I love how maynard tells you not to lie, although you can feel great sorrow and compassion there's no denying there is a morbid fascination in seeing what happens when things go heavily wrong, if it happened to you, other people would be compelled to watch it.
This song is so true! A few days after the school shooting in Connecticut I was at the gym and all of the TV's were showing footage of parents breaking down in tears and losing it. It made me sick how the media leeches capitalize on other's pain and suffering and broadcast it for the whole world to see.
