Wasn't too long ago that you could go to a show
Without trying to be somebody you're not
Now the tables are turned and you're getting burned
Don't let them tell you it rocks
It's all about what your wear, the color of your hair
And how many tatoos you got on your arm.
So how did we get here where'd it all go wrong?
Flying through the airwaves coming into your home
All the suits in Hollywood are gonna roll in all the dough

Tell me that you need it
Tell me that you feel it
This is the new sensation
Come on and just try it
You know you can't fight it
This is gonna sweep the nation

I think back to this day
When all the bands used to play
Without giving a shit about what was in
Now it's changed, scenes rearranged
Let's start it over again
What really matters to me is so easy to see
It's staring us right in the face
We gotta put it behind, get back in line
We gotta save this dying race.

I don't think you feel it
I don't think you need it
This is no new sensation
I don't think you need it
I don't think you feel it
Why don't change the fucking station?

    General CommentIt's about mainstream music
    And how much it sucks balls
    And they are saying this must end and we must try to fight against it and get back to real music which means something

    Blah de Blah blahhhhh

    General CommentI don't know why this song isn't that popular among their fans, it's definitely one of my top 5. Catchy melodies and a good message.
    Just One More is their best album to date, it's got the best mix between their faster and slower songs.
