we can waste we can come and go we can act like we don't know about suffering and pain we can live our lives in shame for never helping anyone we know or don't but we need to recognize that we are dying if we live alone let's send our energy out with what we know and unify today because our freedom sits at the end of a gun we're all here getting beat up and held back we're all here digging knives from our backs we've all been betrayed because it's business not people it's always take and it is never give and that's not the way i want to live cause that's nothing but dying and we're nothing if we sell ourselves close your eyes never hear never cry for living an empty life

    General CommentBest fucking song ever! By the best fucking band ever!
    Love all fellow human beings and treat them with respect and dignity.... kind of in the same vein as "sons and daughters" off A Flight and a Crash :)

    General CommentI just heard this before. Haven't stopped playing it for 3 days :-)

    Noone on their death bed looks back on their life with regrets about their career. Its not even relevant. If they have any regrets, it is for failed relationships. This is what the song is about.

    General CommentThis song is soooo brillant. My favourite Hot water Music song. It's pretty self explanitory. Just talking about how people ignore issues that are going down around us, but we need to stop being bums and stop being so damn selfish and look around and do something for a change.. Help someone. And its not business- its people :) we all just have to realize that and stop steping on eachother to get to the top of the ladder. Whats life without love kiddies? If you're crummy to people and do things with selfish intentions no one will love you.. and you'll die lonley old and wrinkly! >:(

    General Commentwhat a beautiful song...it is so true. if people just did little things to help someone in need, the world would be a better place. its about how people can be so caught up in themselves that they forget the rest of the world around them. this song is exactly what i want to say but couldn't find the words to describe it. hot water music rox my sox
