macho insecurity lyrics – dead kennedys

name one thing on earth lower than a tough guy
who talks with his fists instead of using his head
who beats the sh*t out of anything it can’t understand
behind the muscle mask is a scared little boy

called macho insecurity
macho insecurity
macho insecurity
’cause you can’t stand
yourself

got a b*tch with me?
why won’t you say it to my face?
it’s so easy to mouth off to others
but where’s your proof?
maybe we can talk if you’d just drop your act
nothing’s ever solved by making childish threats
that’s macho insecurity
(chorus)

why do you want people to be so afraid of you?
why are you so scared of anything that’s different?
no one’s ever there when you need friends
you wonder why¡­
it’s ’cause you take yourself so seriously
but being such a clown
gives the rest of us the right to laugh
at your macho insecurity
’cause you can’t stand yourself
