Here is my new disposition. You're about to understand. Our theory is only obvious to the skeptical, and at the bitter end. You're staring at a white page and the print is plain to see. Now turn the page and read what's written. It's your history. Do you understand? The dream is over. You haven't slept in years. Don't be looking for answers. You're better following trails. You're staring at a black screen. Your body starts to tense. When two plus two is five or less it's time to question common sense. Silence is a secret, a weapon in disguise. Listen to the silence. Open up your eyes. Do you decide what you hear and believe? Tell me who makes your mind up for you. Do you believe what you see to be true? Can you tell me who owns the truth? Who bought the truth? What is your disposition? Here is my new disposition. You're about to understand. Our theory is only obvious to the skeptical and at the bitter end.

    General CommentThis song seems to be a reality check. in a world full of blind sheep and followers, it's time to wake up and see reality. People live in a dream, where the "truth" has been hand fed to them. Now that dream is over and it's time to look and see the real truth for themselves.

    General CommentOMG! Talk about a gr8 song this song is just so gr8! I love this song so much! This is totally one of the best songs off of the CD! It is just so well sang and it's even written very well so that would mean that it has gr8 lyrics and which it does. I think that this song isnt really Emo but more of Old Skool Punk but it still is one of my all time favorite songs that Juliana Thoery. All the songs off of Emotton is Dead are awesome and gr8 so that only means one thing that this band is truely talented and knows how to write, sing, and preform good music in which they totally do. No doubt about it. I just love the whole CD which there aren't much of them for me! I don't dislike not one song of intrumental on their CD! I totally love The Juliana Thoery and this song! HeHe!:) Luv it to death!

    General Commentyeah. anyways, I think this song is lyrically well-written, and I too believe it is just kind of a reality check. "do you believe what you see to be true?" is one of the best lines in this song because it's basically saying that what you see to be "true" may not be something that you really believe. and I'm not sure about the part that says "the dream is over. you haven't slept in years." I'm sure it's blatantly obvious, but I'm just weird. that is all. bye!

    General CommentIs this song's title and lyrics a play off of the title of the band's earlier album, "Understand This is a Dream"?
