"Throw Down" as written by and Joshua Allen Cain Justin Pierre Courtney....
To be lost in a state of confusion
no sense of direction you can't be found
far from the truth of the slim and shady youth
but it's all the same, yeah it's all the same to me

That's what you say when you're falling down
That's what you say when you throw down with me
That's what you say when you're falling down
That's what you get when you throw down with me

With open arms you embrace abbrassive action
you welcome verbal violence your thoughts unsound
you wear the message on your face I'll wipe it off without a trace
'cause I'm all the rage, yeah I'm all the rage again

That's what you say when you're falling down
That's what you say when you throw down with me
That's what you say when you're falling down
That's what you get when you throw down with me

If you could see that it's all the same to me
I can't believe you can mean those things you say
but the harder I keep running
the harder I keep running
the more you waste my time

Don't look now but your friends are not around
to protect the words they gave you to be just like them
you say the words fuck you and yeah I've got a message to
hey we're all the same, in a way we're all the same as you

That's what you say when you're falling down
That's what you say when you're throwing down with me
That's what you say when you're falling down
That's what you get when you throw down with me

If you could see that it's all the same to me
I can't believe you can mean those things you say
I can't believe the things you say [x3]
but the harder I keep running
the harder I keep running
the more you waste my time

If we can't get along we'll have to find a middleground
if we can agree that we disagree about the same things we believe to be true
from me to you nothing but messages and paper planes
members only and memories end in the end the end

If you could see that it's all the same to me
I can't believe you can mean those things you say
but the harder I keep running
the harder I keep running
the more you waste my time

To be lost in a state of confusion
no sense of direction you can't be found
far from the truth of the slim and shady youth
but it's all the same it's all the same to me

That's what you say when you're falling down
That's what you say when you throw down with me
That's what you say when you're falling down
That's what you get when you throw down with me

    General CommentPossibly Motion City's best. I've seen em twice (can't wait for the third at Warped...) and they closed with this both times. Nothing makes the kids jump like this one.

    General CommentWOOT!!!! excatly a month before i see them @ warped tour! ( i got my vans ready) lol. this song is i think not just about the kids that used to pick on him but also about the corperate bullies, and bosses that push people around. i think this may be about the in famous Matt in " open the door" ( matt makes his muderous demands full of fumes i take a stand/and its all uphill from here ( at least i hope so)) so that may ahve a connection because the lyrics in this song heavily remind me of that line. you know the little guy who stands up to the bullies to find a fair view of each other on both sides.
