"Prisoners Of Today" as written by Aaron Solowoniuk, Jon Gallant, Ian D'sa and Ben Kowalewicz....
I never bite off more than I could chew
But then she came and bit me
I never bite off more than I could chew
But then she bit my leg
She said don't want to work I want to play and live my life like it was Sunday
The only problem is that Sunday only comes now once a week and I'm a freak but

We're breaking up the city
No time for wasting away
So tell me why should I stay
A prisoner of today

My body's tight my soul's excited and I wish that I was gifted
My body's tight my souls excited and I wish I had some spunk
I want to run I want to hide and leave this place Just like it left me
The only problem is I need to find the balls to follow through and that's the truth but

We're breaking up the city
No time for wasting away
So tell me why should I stay a prisoner of today
No time for one another no time for one another no time for one another no time for one another

But this is our time this is our time this is our time and our place
History I history I history I can't erase
This is our time this is our time this is our time and our place

Were breaking up the city
No time for wasting away
So tell me why should I stay a prisoner.

    General CommentThis song is about not being happy with the regular routine that life has given you. The usual work 5 days a week and always looking forward to the one or 2 free day(s) at the end of the week just is depressing. Its also saying that it shouldn't be like that. It's your life and you should be happy with it.

    General CommentAlso... I think they were listening to that Along Comes Mary song... the "sweet as the punch" song... you know. The lyric pattern is VERY similar including the fast spoken verses.
