"Blowin' My Stack" is the third track on Death to False Metal.

Overview

"Blowin' My Stack" is first known to have been rehearsed at S.I.R. Rehearsal Studios in Los Angeles, CA sometime in May of 2003. The song continued to be rehearsed throughout 2003 and 2004, including as an acoustic office demo, and was worked on as a possible track for the band's fifth album, Make Believe. Though it, ultimately, would not appear on that album, it was brought back and reworked for the compilation album Death to False Metal in 2010. According to an interview with Karl Koch in 2017, before it was brought back for DTFM, the song was originally a darker, "mean", possibly minor-key song. Cuomo wanted to release the song but didn't like the way he had done it, and so recorded it in a major key. Koch likened hearing the newer version to hearing a song played back at the wrong speed, and expressed a preference for the original version.

Lyrics

Woe is me
I’m standing in line for the first time in a mighty long time
But it feels good to be a jerk I’m just a loser on his way to work
Cause I need cash to pay my bills
And buy some groceries to eat my fill
But I’m pissed off cause no one cares
They walk on by me like I ain’t ever there

So I’m blowin’ my stack
Blowin’ my stack
It makes me feel good
Blowing my stack
Blowin’ my stack
It makes me feel good

So easy to roll through life
You know the answers but you don’t know why
You just stand tall and move ahead
Your heart is beating but you wind up dead
'Cause you can’t feel any love inside
It tries to find you but you run and hide
'Cause you're so scared (so scared) so scared (so scared)
And I’m scared too

So I’m blowin’ my stack
Blowin’ my stack
It makes me feel good
Blowing my stack
Blowin’ my stack
It makes me feel good

I’m too tired to fight
I’m too tired to fight
I’m too tired to fight
I’m too tired to fight
Fight, fight

I’m blowin’ my stack
Blowin’ my stack, blowin’ my stack
It makes me feel good
Blowing my stack, blowin’ my stack
It makes me feel good
