Story Behind the Song

I went to a hippy jam retreat up in Lake County, California at my friends' house. Cool people. They had a bunch of land. Most people played hippy feather jam music. I like to shred at jam sessions. I saw this one guy pull out his guitar and try to take over the jam session with his own songs, so I decided to take over the jam session by completely dominating him at guitar. I shredded faster, louder, and more experimentally than he. I won.

Then on the way home, I was like, "Why the fuck did I do that? He was actually a nice guy. I don't need to constantly dominate everybody I see. What drove me to do that? Everybody knows I play guitar."

So then I wrote this song.


I must be evil, all I want is cash
Power, Sex, Money, I own your ass

I'm a pimp, hate me in your life
Power, Sex, Money, I own your wife

I'm a beast, gonna watch you bleed
Power, Sex, Money, I take what you need

I'm a liar, you think I'm kind
Power, Sex, Money, I own your mind

I am your sex, I am your lover
I am your ex, I am your brother
I am your boss, I am your power
I am your loss, I am your father

We have become The Man
We have become The Man

I am hard, like everything I own
Power, Sex, Money, my body is porn

I fuck my money, dominate my bills
Power, Sex, Money, drill, drill, drill

I am hungry, I own your dinner
Power, Sex, Money, I am the winner

I am strong, you're my biggest fan
Power, Sex, Money, I am The Man
