"A Few Good Men" as written by and Alexander Barr Matthew Kelly....
It's time we stood up for ourselves so get up off your knees.
We'll shake off our detractors and attain our hopes and dreams
and if we fall prey to in-fighting, we're never gonna win,
so put aside your differences, sing loud, sing proud

We won't listen to their stories or be waylaid by their lies
it's a dram that's still attainable for kids like you and I
So if we all stand together singing one defiant song
our voice will reach the heavens, so sing with all your heart

Join us in a song
we shall rise and sing stand up and be counted
sing a song for liberty join us in this song
together we shall sing rise up and be counted
sing it loud, sing it proud

We've been brutalized and crucified, the brunt of their attacks,
is corruption not their trademark and compassion what they lack?
If we can realize our common goals,
the end of which is plain united and now stronger,
their loss is now our gain!

    General CommentThis song is pretty awesome, it makes me wanna get up and clap and sing along with them. It's about people sticking together and setting differences aside in order to conquer the common enemy, which in this case appears to be the government. Why can't everybody just drink and sing together? I don't know, but hopefully we will all be able to one day.

    General CommentNot so much the government as Corporate Management. This song sounds very much like a union song, something not uncommon to DKM. It's also applicable to a democratic rebellion, like the American or French Revolutions.

    General CommentOr it could be about the punk scene... a commentary about how punk has divided into so many different factions that fight each other that nothing can be accomplished.

    Or perhaps the band itself, SLSP was (I think) the first album with Al on instead of Mike and there may have been some dissent in the band? "If we fall prey to in-fighting...."

    General Commenti definitely agree with palooka about this being a union song. 'in-fighting' comments above apply to unions...
