The wind is shifting, somethings different in the air.
I see it in the form of choices every where.
And I've been asleep a lifetime just to wake in time to find.
The voice that has been speaking for me is no voice of mine

Now you've just been spoken for.
Now you've just been sold.

My eyes fixated on the life I left behind,
a puppet dreams of being human
every time that a string gets pulled before you know, your dancin' to the lie
of someone elses vision of the perfect wasted life.

It's in the way we never seem to get it right
A systematic form of bowing down and under,
and all we know is what we are, without the faith in who we are,
so desperate.

Somethin' here has gotta give and my instincts fill me with this dread,
that I've become what I'm tryin' to kill, that my appetite is my free will.

There is no right.
There is no wrong.
There is only that is forever gone.

It's in the way we never seem to get it right
A systematic form of bowing down and under,
and all we know is what we are, without the faith in who we are,
so desperate.

Now you've just been spoken for.
Now you've just been sold.
Now you've just been spoken for.

    General Commenti loved the rock against bush album it had some killer bands and i thought it was awsome how they god involved in the election and put forth who they though should be in office AND this song is an awsome political song saying how people should voice there opinions and shouldn't have other people speak for them when they don't feel its right .. get involved awsome message

    General CommentFrom reading what's been written here, it's clear to me that all of you are under the age of 22, are extremely impressionable, and can't think for yourselves. Of course elected officials are speaking for you. That's why you voted for them. That's democracy. Just because punk bands sing about how the government is flawed, doesn't mean you should believe it. That's what punk was formed on. REBELLION. Punk bands have always been singing about what a horrible job the current president is doing. They did it with the first Bush, they did it with Clinton, and now they're doing it with George W. It will always be that way... I suggest you all grow up and speak your own voice and realize what you're saying... in the words of H2O "before you go waving flags, you better know what they stand for"

    General CommentTo me, this song isn't political.

    To me, the song's about breaking free from other people's visions of who or what you should be.

    Almost everyone wants to be a certain way or do certain things just because it's what other people tell them to do. They are trying to live up to other people's expectations instead of using their own free will.

    "It's in the way we never seem to get it right
    A systematic form of bowing down and under,
    and all we know is what we are, without the faith in who we are,
    so desperate."

    When people don't "get something right", they have a tendency to just give up. This is a form of "bowing down and under" to everyone who told you that your visions and dreams of who you could be were wrong and impossible.

    "Now you've just been spoken for
    Now you've just been sold"

    If you don't persue your dreams, someone else will try to make you persue theirs. If you don't speak for yourself, others will speak for you, and in a sense OWN you and your free will.

    I think the rest of the lyrics point toward that theme as well. Great song.
