about

Originally composed as a joke, "So I Punched 'em in the Face" became an extremely high energy staple of Iron-E's stage show. When performed live, the gag is that the guitar solo continues on and on and on beyond any logic to the bewilderment of the rest of the band. This version seeks to recreate that gag with a false fade out. Fun fact: the title is derived from the punchline of a joke delivered by stand-up comedian Ben Bailey. Funner fact: this track features our drummer's only line of dialogue (lyric?) in the whole album. See if you can spot it...

lyrics

Never thought that I was gonna do this kind of stuff
Always thought that education would be just enough
Reach into my soul and I’m a really nice guy
Listen to these words and then you’ll understand why

TAX EXEMPTION!
EXISTENTIALISM!
ANTHROPOLOGY!
ANTI-DISESTABLISHMENTARIANISM!
(penis...)

Nowadays, the poetry can have a new meaning
Cannot stop the progress, everyday it’s careening
Ignorance vanishing, no semblance of a trace
Uhh…SO I PUNCHED ‘EM IN THE FACE!
