"Stolen From Some Great Writer" as written by Daniel Lowder, Thomas J Minich, Jose Daniel Romero and Mark Daniel Rose....
I can't remember anything,
My thoughts are constantly moving,
Where will I be tomorrow?
Where will I be next year?
I'll never put my finger on,
Just what I wanted to say,
My motivation changes,
When things turn out this way.

We are,
So sick of,
Recycled old ideas
The only way we can,
Get you to pay attention.
Letting go,
You're hanging on (on!)
And on and on
Just let go,
Your hanging on (on!)
And on and on

Oh no, here we go again
Fell for, the same trick twice.
When will you learn from our mistakes?
When will you take our advice?
We've got we where we want you,
Its time to make that change,
So turn off the radio, and,
Begin right now today.

We are,
So sick of,
Recycled old ideas
The only way we can,
Get you to pay attention.
Letting go,
You're hanging on (on!)
And on and on
Just let go,
Your hanging on (on!)
And on and on

Letting go,
Your hanging on (on!)
And on and on
Just let go,
You're hanging on,
You're hanging on,
You're hanging on, yeah!

    General Commentyeah, this album came out 06/2003... kicked off at The Metro in Chi (best place ever)
    If you don't mind music thats a bit rough around the edges, go to their website and buy their first album, "Faster Crashes Harder". Or, ya know, you can find me on AIM and dl a couple from me. ;o)

    General CommentI think the first verse is by the kid/teenager/youth, worrying/wondering about his/her future ("Where will I be tomorrow? Where will I be next year?")
    It sounds like things aren't going too well ("when things turn out this way") and his "motivation changes"... Maybe meaning... that he is now motivated to do something else cos of how things turned out?

    "Fell for the same trick twice" maybe means that the parent was snowed by the child twice. I think the 2nd verse is from a parent, saying it to their kid. Probably a wayward teenager/youth. The parent made mistakes and is trying to give the kid advice but he/she's not taking it. The kid's trying to drown out the parent by listening to the radio and maybe says something like "Okay, I'll do my work right now." So the parent says, "begin [your] RIGHT NOW today". Telling the child to stop procrastinating?

    I don't know that's just what it means to me now, cause i have a freaking shitload of homework to do and that's the first thing that struck me when i heard this song/that part.

    I can't figure out the rest, can anyone? I really wanna know what it means.
