In the dark, in the dark you’ll find us
Make a noise to the beat of fashion
No name brand will keep us in this hole

Apologize making indecision
Come alive in the patron saints of medicine
Medicine makes friends

At the bottom of a wishing well
Was a secret that we dare not speak out loud
Holding hands in a powerful stare
Wearing badges those kept to show we care

I only do what the people say
I exist in the hearts of all our friends
I don’t want to be a victim here
I just want to rid the people of this

Yeah, we all die young
We need no victims in this
Flaccid generation
We need no victims in this

Put us in, put us in submission
Bring a life, wanna fight your system
Won’t back down till the conversation ends

In front of me the calamine breaks even
Take it back to the panic push
And promises, cause promises break friends

At the bottom of a wishing well
Was a secret that we dare not speak out loud
Holding hands in a powerful stare
Wearing badges those kept to show we care

I only do what the people say
I exist in the hearts of all our friends
I don’t want to be a victim here
I just want to rid the people of this

Yeah, we all die young
We need no victims in this
Flaccid generation
We need no victims in this

At the bottom of a wishing well
Was a secret that we dare not speak out loud
Holding hands in a powerful stare
Wearing badges those kept to show we care

I only do what the people say
I exist in the hearts of all our friends
I don’t want to be a victim here
I just want to rid the people of this

    i think these three parts of the song shows that there's a secret club that nobody really knows about unless they really bother to go around and find out about. and although i think the club is kept a secret cause they do bad stuff or whatever. and that the only way people could i dentify them is by the badges they wear.

    'I only do what the people say
    I exist in the hearts of all our friends
    I don’t want to be a victim here
    I just want to rid the people of this'

    this part of the song, i think is someone else talking. maybe someone out to destroy this secret club. maybe he studies their activities and such and that although nobody knows what he's doing, he has connections to discover more about the secret club and that he will destroy the club/people in the club so that nobody else will be their victim.

    ahah thats my point of view but you know, it could mean something else and i guess i'm a complex-thinker..

    General Comment"At the bottom of a wishing well

    this is my favorite part of the whole song. i am kind of known for over analyzing things, but its fun so i will do it.
    the idea of the bottom of a wishing well is so awesome. i love it. its like, everyone is wishfully hoping for things, relying on something inconsequential to make it happen for them. but at the bottom, where no one sees, are the people who see the truth behind it. the ugly, non tourist version of a wishing well where there are no cute shingles and painted wood. its where the water corrodes the cobble stones and its dark and scary and full of death, from which there is no escape. there is money, but it doesn't matter because you can't get out again. really cool image for me...

    And the secret that they dare not speak out loud could be anything. something that happened at the bottom of the wishing well, something that was found, but the "dare not speak out loud" is good because the thing about a well, is that you can cry out for help and no one will hear you, but a tiny whisper is amplified INSIDE it. holding hands in a powerful stare is a great phrase that could symbolize love. As if the stare communicates the secret without speaking. as for the badges i have no clue, but it seems like they could be metaphorical. not actual badges, just a term for a mark or something, non physical characteristic that they have that sets them apart from those who do not know the secret, or do not care because all they see (or want to see) is the surface of the well house, and not what is at the bottom
