Some people sing for life some people sing for death
Some people sing to sing the songs that they like best
Some people sing for broke some people sing for fame
Some people sing for hope some people sing for pain

So when you feel like this and really wish
That everyone else would just go away
When you feel like this and really wish
That everyone else would just go away

Free your mind and

Sing for the man on the corner
Sing for your love of God
Sing for your apathy
No matter, no matter what you believe
Sing just a little bit louder
Sing with all you got
Sing along with me
No matter, not matter what you believe


Some people sing for love some people sing for hate
Some people sing to sing a song cause they relate
Some people sing inside some people sing in vain
Some people sing to lose some people sing to gain

Open your mind and

Some people sing for life some people sing for death
Some people sing to sing the songs that they like best
Some people sing for hope some people sing for pain

So let me hear you people sing

    General Commentthis is one of the only songs by dope, where they're not tryin to be hard as hell, i can totally respect that, if you ask me they broke new boundaries for themselves when they recorded this song..... just to let you guys know..... this song actually kept me from hurting (or killing) myself a few times, its such and uplifting song

    General CommentWow r_a_b thank you for sharing that!

    I'm glad I'm not the only one saved from the music.

    This song is really awesome.

    It's all about singing. Don't worry about what different kinds of songs are out there. What different kind of bands are out there. Everyone's doing it for the same thing. For the love and happiness of life. For the future and no matter what you believe, you can sing too. Everybody can.

    Song comes from the heart. It's the place within you, and it doesn't matter what voice you have (literally and figuratively).

    Just sing and everyone who loves it will feel the same way. Let the world melt away and you'll see what's really alive out there.

    Sing out loud.

    Sing quietly.

    It doesn't matter, because all that matters is how you feel. And what is for you.

    General Commentim probably restating some things i said in my previous post, but, whatever... i was listening to this song recently and thought, maybe the message that edsel was trying to get across was that you have to have something to live for(or in this case, sing) and if you dont, whats the point in going on?(kind of ties in with a famous quote, not sure who said this, but it goes something like " if you have nothing to live for, then you are already dead). To go along with that, maybe hes saying that everybody has something, no matter how down and out they are, there is always somebody or something you can look forward to

    General CommentI almost like dope's softer stuff, better than their regular stuff just because all their hard shit is similar.

    Another awesome song. It's pretty much just about doing what you love doing (like singing), and just live for it, and let everyone know and don't let anyone change it.

    General CommentI love this song. This song (to me) has alot of value. Music is an expression of yourself. It is essentially a major part of who you are.

    This song while is much softier ultimately carries the same meaning as a lot of their harder songs. Regardless of what its going to cost you no matter who is going to make fun of you.

    To me this song also has another meaning.. i always wanted to get into choir or band in school but, my parents never let me.. They hate the music I like now (metal). So to me this song is about being true to yourself.

    We all need to sing. Its a part of who we are. It carries a deeper meaning then words can really express..

    sooooooo

    Some people sing for life some people sing for death
    Some people sing to sing the songs that they like best
    Some people sing for hope some people sing for pain

    So let me hear you people sing

    General CommentI was just introduced to Dope by my friend at school. I heard this song, and immediately bought the album. I can't stop listening to it, it's so true.

    He's saying that everyone has something to sing about, regardless of whether it's good or bad. Everyone has a story to share. So sing, share. And then there are the people who don't have voices (figuratively speaking), so sing for them too.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. Dope has been my favorite band every since I heard the very last song that I haven't heard up until then. They've never made a bad song, and this is one of their best. Its all about singing as some of you said, theres not much for me to say about it.
