"Wasted Words" as written by Jim Miner, Efrem Schultz, Daniel Aaron Palmer, Todd Henning and Paul Michael Miner....
Follow sheep and move along
Come on kids let's sing along
Do you realize what I'm saying?
Do you believe a word I sing?
Here's the proof just look around
And I can see it in your eyes
I can see your full of, full of lies

All these wasted words
I'd spill my guts for you
We lay it all on the line
We do it night after night
Ideas go unheard
With every breath I spew
We lay it all on the line
We do it night after night
We lay it all! We lay it all!

With every word it makes me sick
I hope they hit you like a ton of bricks
And the reality surrounds you
Open up your eyes can't you see the lies?
Religion, the hatred, the money they're makin
Take your life back, then you'll fight back
When you see the wrong then you'll be the song

All these wasted words
I'd spill my guts for you
We lay it all on the line
We do it night after night
Ideas go unheard
With every breath I spew
We lay it all on the line
We do it night after night

    General CommentThis song is about Fans who just follow a band because they're cool or to fit in, and about controlled rebellion, its about listening but never taking in what a person can mean in what they say, possibly about DBS fans because they have a habit of slightly cryptic (and brilliant) lyrics but i doubt it as DBS arent very big.

    General CommentAlso being about How they can say this all but its useless against the flood of corperate sh*t people get fed and how things are silenced or just ignored for not being important
