i picture myself in a red room dark except for the candle light on the wall hang pictures of you on the floor lie pieces of my spine hey, get over it hey, get over it i take a step towards the wall i press my cheek to a picture of you my knees get weak and i fall i curse what you have put me through hey, get over it hey, get over it hey, get over it hey, get over it hey, get over it hey, get over it take a hammer to the side of my brain beat me 'til i go sane bleed me dry and take what's left of me hey, get over it get over it


"Whiskey & Razorwire (Get Over It)' is the second single from The Absurd's forthcoming full-length album 'The Sun Still Rises.' The song sees the band depart from their usual rantings about authoritarian politics, choosing instead to focus on a more sensitive topic:

Women. And how, while all women are beautiful and deserving of respect from all, they're also all apparently ruthless shrews sent from the depths of hell for the express purpose of terrorizing men.

Because what the world truly needed was another song about women written by three straight, white men from Los Angeles.

As one would expect, The Absurd's take on love and intimacy is handled with all the delicateness of a caveman whacking a Wooly Mammoth with a sledgehammer. 'Whiskey' is the story of lead singer Ben Foerg's alcoholism-fueled tailspin after a break-up, as he lashes out at others for what is clearly his own personal problem. Yet another failed attempt at art brought to you by California's lowest common denominator.
