"Raise Your Rifles" as written by and Christopher C./johnson Hughes....
All my trials and tribulations
Have led me to one realization
That no matter where I've been
I'm still stuck inside my skin

And I'm not trying to be something I'm not
Letting their thoughts get in 'cause I
Won't end up twisted and insane

All those fears and reservations
Ended up as amputations
Cause no matter where I've been
I'm still stuck inside my skin

And I'm not trying to be something I'm not
Letting their thoughts get in 'cause I
Won't end up twisted and insane

And I'm not trying to be something I'm not
Letting their thoughts get in 'cause I
Won't end up twisted and insane

And all my insecurities
and my anxieties
Tore out my insides
And it took a while to find
That I don't really mind
Life on the outside

So take up your aim and raise your rifles
Fire Away! 'Cause I don't really care at all

And I'm not trying to be something I'm not
Letting their thoughts get in 'cause I
Won't end up twisted and insane

And I'm not trying to be something I'm not
Letting their thoughts get in 'cause I
Won't end up twisted and insane

    General CommentLMAO!!!! LMAO!!!! LMAO!!!! LMAO!!!! LMAO!!!! LMAO!!!! Try dispensing something verbal instead of dispelling pure emotion/nonsense.

    I agree with you Chelsea, it's a KICK ASS song, but fukkin' A, what do the LYRICS mean to you??

    To me, this is the definitive Autopilot Off song. Not givin' a flying fuck, and belting it out from the top, which is where these sons of bitches belong!!!!

    At one point, they knew they had it. I believe they still do.....too bad I'm not in the band.

    Moral of the story: Don't let external bullshit penetrate your situation; otherwise, life's gonna suck and kick ass bands will break up!!! ;)

    Seriously though, these guys kick ass!!! Let's all hope they get back together sooner rather than later.

    Peace.
