Rat has been thrown out of the club during the city’s music festival, but that doesn’t stop him from performing his favorite Mark Eitzel song a cappella…at the top of his lungs!


Pollard: Outside this bar, there’s a man screaming at the top of his lungs
There’s a man, screaming not to go down this road
Not to do what you’re told

In the bedroom, on the microphone
He’s holding to the lamp post
He’s grabbing on to major chords
And popping all the strings
And you can hear him sing
If you’re outside this bar, on a Friday,
At a festival, he goes…

In a town which all the partiers were thrown off of balconies
Into mediocrity
And pop tunes that kill brain cells
But sell lots of Chevys

Rat: "Outside this bar, there’s no one alive
Outside this bar, how does anyone survive?
Together you and me turn this quiet night into silence
Together we'll turn this love into violence
Outside this bar, outside this bar…”
