Shorter!

Browner!
Greener!
And more blatty than a human egg [x4]
A Human Egg




Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Sick of It All's song "Blatty" describe the physical characteristics of a person who is presumably undesirable in appearance. The repeated lines of "Shorter! Wider! Browner! Greener!" create a sense of emphasis on these traits, possibly suggesting that they are viewed as negative in society. The use of the word "blatty" adds to the pejorative tone, as it is not a commonly used word and its meaning is unclear. However, it may be interpreted as a way of describing someone as grotesque or unattractive. The final line, "And more blatty than a human egg," further emphasizes the strangeness and unattractiveness of this person.


The song could be seen as a commentary on society's standards of beauty and the pressure to conform to those standards. The repeated use of the word "more" suggests that this person is not only different but also worse or inferior in some way. However, the song's title, "Blatty," may also reference the horror writer William Peter Blatty, who wrote "The Exorcist" and other tales of horror and suspense. In this interpretation, the song could be seen as a tribute to Blatty's legacy of creating unsettling and frightening stories.
