As we stand united
There's forces to fight us
More taking than giving, an idea for living, but not the right one
Why fall without a fight
Hold your ground and stand
I'll sing until I die, so I'll live again
I don't want to stand divided
Hold my breath for decision
I will breathe
Until I'm lifted
Fail to recognize is nothing, letting it slide, that is something. Block them from your makings and show light

    General CommentI've heard this song was about Hot Water Music's legal battle over their band name with Elektra Records. Although they've been on No Idea in the past, and now Epitaph.. I don't see how they could be on Elektra.. But whatever.

    General CommentIt's about another band called Hot Water Music. Elektra threatened legal action, or something, and I think No Idea wanted them to change their name. Chuck says that the name of the band is in his skin, and they'd never change it. I read that somewhere. Awesome riff, though...anyone played Emogame? Couldn't have chosen a better tune to play to...

    General CommentOur boys actually had to rename themsevles The Hot Water Music Band for a little while until the whole thing blew over (i.e. they blew up and the other Hot Water Music ended up looking like morons). Look at the Forever and Counting album cover.
