I speak my mind.
I question theirs.
It seems to me like no one really cares.
Peripherally blind. Intellectually numb.
Ignorance by choice? Or just plain fucking dumb?
You're threatened by my mind. You want everything the same.
But my questions still remain.
You can rearrange my face, but you can't rearrange my mind.
You can beat the shell about me, but you can't touch what's inside.
So who will help me bake this bread?
Who will be the first to speak and leave complacency for dead?
I've done all that I can on my own.
But stagnant minds persist to squeeze blood from this stone.
But I won't Bleed for you. I have no need for you.
Death will be the day I conceed to you.

    General Commentoups!! They CanT control what happen inside!! and hmm.. they are not ignorant by choice, they are ignorant like their parents, like a big part of the world. they are not dumb, they are where they are, in a state of mind-evolution...that i admit is verry build on a false truth, cuz they dont concider the ppl of the world like their equal.

    General Commentstfu jake, he obviously has the cd or has heard the cd in order to have heard that song without downloading it...

    I have a shitload of propagandhi mp3's and i also have all of their cd's i get the mp3's so i dont have to switch cds everytime i want to listen to a song on my computer. Just because you download songs doesnt mean your an asshole stealing shit, I download songs to see if i like a band, and if i do like the band i'll go out and buy their cd.

    General Commentthis song seems to be about two groups of people: those who want change and those who are happy with how things are. but those who want change aren't stepping up and doing anything, though they want a piece of it at the end (note the title). those who don't want think violence is the answer to things as they can't use their mind... ('you boycott your brain, you answer with fists')

    This is a really powerful song; if you want change, get up off your asses and start changing things.

    General CommentA song of frustration at political apathy, about how people are dissatisfied with the way things work, but are too lazy to do anything.

    General Commentits a mix between the story of the little red hen and speaking truth to power.
