(spoken): This is a fair request and I promise I will not judge any person only as a teenager, but you will constantly remind yourselves that some of my generation judges people by their race, their belief or the color of their skin, and that this is no more right than saying all teenagers are drunken dope addicts or glue sniffers.

Do you think it's strange that there's a way
Of how you looked and how you act and how you think,
Pretend they're not the same as you.
(x2)

Do you know about his strength in convictions?
Or how she puts all her faith in religion?
Did we take the time to really discover
How little we know about each other?

Keep us from saying anything, can't separate from everything
And all this really means is
You're one in a crowd and you're paranoid of every sound
Another friend you won't miss anyhow.

Do you think it's strange that there's a way

Did we take the time to really discover
How little we know about each other?

    General CommentI've been listening to less than jake for 6 years now, and this is one of their best. It's just telling you to open up your eyes and take a good look at the people around you. Do you really know them? If theanswer is no, then maybe you should take the time to do it. That's my take, anyway.

    General CommentYeah, you can never hate a person just because of the fact that they may listen to music that sucks, or something micro that has nothing to do with their personality. A lot of my best friends are metalheads, too. ^_^

    General CommentI've been listening to ltj for about six years as well and this is one of my favorite. I think that when you sit a person down and get to know them it will shock you. Even if they're your friend, what you do know is so little. Just think about how complex your personality is you can't possibly really know most people like you think you do. I love ltj with all my heart their lyrics give me goosebumps half the time. I only dream that I will one day be able to write shit that expresses myself as well as they do.

    General CommentOne thing that's not very obvious about LTJ is that most of the guys are big metal fans. It's the old saying "you cant judge a book by its cover."
