"The Mob Goes Wild" as written by and Dan Maines Neil Fallon....
Please allow me to adjust my pants
So that I may dance the good time dance
And put the onlookers and innocent bystanders into a trance

Give disease so the swine will marry and propagate lies.
Tough luck for elected officials. The beast you see got fifty eyes.
Bring it on home, spread the wealth. Play it cool, the hand's been dealt.
Now, all the odds are in our favor. Save the victory speeches for later.

Streets on fire, the mob goes wild.

21 guns, box made of pine, letter from the government sealed and signed
Delivered Federal Express on your mother's doorstep.

Condoleeza Rice is nice, but I prefer A-Roni.
And that man on the T.V. who speaks to the dead, you know that man's a phony.
Everybody move to Canada and smoke lots of pot.
Everybody move to Canada right now. Here's how we do it:
Bum rush the border guard before he and his dog ever knew it.

Streets on fire, the mob goes wild.

21 guns, box made of pine, letter from the government sealed and signed
Delivered Federal Express on your mother's doorstep.

    General Commentgive disease so swine may marry and propagate lies- this is talking about swine flu which was engineered in hopes of fear so the government can get more control, and population reduction.

    The beast you see got fifty eyes - this probaly means the united states which has 50 states each state as and eye, the beast could be related to the beast as in we go to iraq and destroy holy lands in our invasion or world domination

    The next couple lines of spreading wealth and things are just saying that a couple good speeches and your in . Its interesting how obama talks about spreading wealth, possibly this is pointing at how he is a good public speaker but has no idea how to actually do anything


    The pine box is the casket a dead soilder is in and the letter sent is a letter saying the soilder was killed in combat

    Overall its about goverenment lieing to you saying everything is okay while people are off fighting a war which should be over and can never be won, its cool how they metaphorically do it though so you can still rock out to it when you want to

    General CommentThis song is great, I love rebellious tunes. Not to mention it is done so well!

    This song describes Worm Drink's (A conscientious objector) point of view on war, he doesn't want to have shit to do with it, and all that comes of it is bad.

    Not much to it, Love the Chorus though,
    21 guns, box made of pine, letter from the government sealed and signed delivered Federal Express on your mother's doorstep.

    So awesome the first time I heard it, and will continue to be.

    General CommentThis song is awesome, I love the verse:
    Everybody move to Canada and smoke lots of pot.
    Everybody move to Canada right now. Here's how we do it:
    Bum rush the border guard before he and his dog ever knew it.

    General CommentPretty easy to figure out. Easy to see that the chorus is about the death of a soldier.Take a loo

    21 guns = 21 gun salute
    Box made of pine = The casket
    Letter from the gov = Letter notifying parents of their childs death in the war
    Delivered Federal Express = I think the Fed Ex refers to the governments lack of concern for the body, they just ship it with Fed Ex.
