Mind game after mind game for the head-trip after all the shit. One step in advancement, numb to everything. Searching for the result, striving for resolution, offering no solution just more dogma for confusion. Fill you full of promise with your back against the wall; interpret a hopeless freedom where chains liberate the soul. Answers to silent questions from the idols of the dark. First present solution then we'll see about tearing down the walls...

Health all alone you find there's nothing left to fear, with the one exception of the message they conceal. Face placed on the master you find the mirror brings disgust. From the confines of this entrapment you can justify anger as lust. Blatant disregard to the feelings within, selling your own soul condescending nature flowing within. You can hate the system search for bricks to smash the state, but what's the point of revolution when no one can relate? For the finger falls one person short, the crosshairs turned around and you cry war. First present solution then we'll see about tearing down the walls...

    General CommentI can't get enough of this song right now and Against Me already have so many masterwork songs. It may be recorded and low quality but that really suits Tom's voice and the percussion is wicked.

    I think this song is about wanting to start a revolution and get change cuz things are so fucked up, but you don't know what to do or have the support so things could easily all apart and nothing good will come of fighting. This relates to Against Me's analysis of revolution, the flaws of anarchy, and the corruption of government.
