"Your Way" as written by and Derek Gledhill Sean Danielson....
Stand there with your ball and chain
Bitch about what you've created
All caught up in the masquerade
You've already been paid and made it
So don't pretend to know what it's like
To feel the things that we must live through
You only see with your dying eyes
There's only one thing I will ask of you

[Chorus]
Can you take this life
Can you make it right
Do you have the words to say to make it
All go away
You act so wise
And so refined
You can keep your lies 'cause I'm
Never gonna go your way

Promises of a better life
But what's wrong with the one I'm leading
Everyone has a different fight
A different wound that keeps them bleeding
So what's wrong with a little fun
Everybody needs to find their something
Is this how your gonna treat your son
Fuck 'em up and give em nothing

[Chorus]

Everybody needs to find their own way through life
Everybody needs to find their own way

    General CommentI haven't heard the song but after reading the lyrics, i think both of you are right. i'm leaning more towards the God idea though. I am because it just sounds like something I would hear at my church. It's probably not even God, it could be a priest who is speaking for God but has no idea what he's talking about. Who knows. The lyrics are great.

    General Comment"everyone has a different fight
    a different wound that keeps them bleeding "

    I dunno why, but I love these lyrics so much.

    I think it could also be about how you can't help somebody "see the light" (as in depression, religion, etc.), they have to find it themselves.

    General CommentI lean more toward the thought of this is how he is speaking to one of his parents (especially after he says the word 'son'). To me, it's about how kids know how hard things can be, they see it everyday and they're forced to deal with it. However, then they grow up, they lose touch with things and they forget what it's like to live as we do. They become hypocrites of the worst form. This is Sean fighting with them, attempting to get them to see what's really going on. In the chorus he says a grandiose 'fuck it' and gives up on them, deciding instead that he's living the best he can, and he'll continue to do so.

    General Commentparents sending a child through phyciatric help. Offering pills and blind, prewritten bullshit about how you are, they ignore you and focus on what they've read, reading a script to you theyve created before they ever met you. and it doesnt actually work. But they've already been paid, they dont care, they're just making money. cocky phychiatrists and phychologists, with bullshit answers and no true solution. but it wont actually work. never gonna go thier way

    General Comment" stand there with your ball and chain

    I love these lines. It's so true. Parents have kids, and then just bitch and complain about them. Then try to run their lives until they completely piss the kid off.

    General CommentI think the song's about parent's running a kid's life, telling them how and when to do everything, and I'm pretty sure it was inspired by Sean's mom and stepdad
