It Gets Worse

On the new record there is a song called “It Gets Worse” which is a song about the fucking truth, … we are here to deliver the truth! It does not get better for everybody! Oh sure if you are real good looking, if you got money, if you happen to have an ounce of talent, yeah sure it’ll probably get better for you. But for the rest of us motherfuckers? You are probably going to be working at a fucking gas station! Hell you might lose a fucking arm, you don’t fucking know! To put a blanket statement out there like, “it always gets better,” is fucking dangerous and stupid. Giving people false hope instead of realism is really irresponsible and fucked up, so we’re going to call you out on that! So that’s us, we come with the truth, not necessarily with a flag. In general MSI is very liberal. We believe in women’s choice, and gay marriage, and all that, but we also think that that shit is kindergarten shit! It’s 2013! We’ve been thinking like that since we were kids! People are still having huge arguments over that stuff? That’s the stuff that blows my mind! Like come on! Deal with that shit legally later. Like today kids get toys in the ce- real box, choke and die, the next week, slap a fucking label on the box about how you shouldn’t put it in your mouth. Done! MSI is about saying that kind of truth. – Urine, Auxiliary Magazine, April 2013

hey you baby
you don’t know how bad it’s going to get
if you think shit sucks now you ain’t seen nothing yet because it doesn’t get better
unless you’re pretty
it doesn’t better
unless you’ve got money
it doesn’t get better
so just give up it
never gets better
it gets worse
oh oh oh oh
you gonna die alone
it gets worse
oh oh oh shit yeah
it gets worse
now I’m no psychiatrist
I’m no doctor with no degrees
but it don’t take no fuckin’ scientist to figure out
that there is nothing in this world for me
you’re going down the road
that’s the same one that we have
we cannot wait to watch life kick you in your ass
I shed a little tear for all of you out there
there’s no way to escape
welcome to hell
so long cruel world
