She's a dead horse. There's no sense in beating her into the ground. She's a dead horse. Accept it and move on. No matter how many times you kick her in the chest she will not take another breath. And don't let the twitches fool you. It's just nerves, it won't last. There's something newer and better waiting to take her place. But you won't move on. So as you sit here beating a dead horse we'll be riding circles around you.

    General CommentThese lyrics are about how hardcore needs to progress musically. They are just trying to say that too many bands are using old ideas and need to move on. And that just because you dont sound like an older band doesn't mean you're not hardcore.

    General Commentthats an interesting way of putting it, and i see your point. i always thought the lyrics were about a girl that this guy cant get over. but i like the musical progression theory better.
