build a sound phrase run it through a nation
make a dance craze turn into a nation
we will search in waters for our destination
born in troubled eras born to test a nation
let me go, let me shoulder up to angels
walk this street without fear of strangers
let me move move conscious sons and daughters
trade this sorrow for a code of honor

one ton one song
one little step one destination
woah, walk through a beehive
never get stung

hot's on the left cold's on the right
one wrong turn and you'll be burning all night
swing from the drapes with the other party apes
when I leave this place, I'm taking my tapes
nobody move, nobody get stung
one ton song sun heavier than the sun
wave pattern riot hit the set no damage done
rocking the crowds in the back of the dance and
we're rocking 'em up in the front

good bye desensitization
walk through a beehive never get stung
all across the world all across the nation
turn it out turn it out, all my relation

    General CommentIt seems to me that this song is about how one small song can carry a 'heavy' meaning and change the world in some way. It's almost as if Common Rider's aim is to move from destination to destination, and change the world bit by bit.

    General Comment"Walk through a beehive, never get stung"

    You cant listen to all this music that's showcasing the artist's emotions and opinions without being effected somehow.

    General Commentthis song is about operation ivy for me

    i think it's mostly about how jesse believes music can change the world, how "one song sung" can weigh "one ton" and have a physical effect on the world.

    also

    "Music is an indirect force for change, because it provides an anchor against human tradgedy in this sense. It works towards a reconciled world."

    this song is talking about a song being a one ton anchor
