Aaaaaaaaaw

Well, is it true what they say about it?
They say it's new, but I have to doubt it
And then they tell you everything about it
Had enough
I got some people saying this way
I got some people saying that way
I got some people saying there's no way
Ain't it tough?

See the idiot walk
See the idiot talk
See the idiot chalk up his name on the blackboard
See the robot walk
See the robot talk
See the robot write up his name on the ballot
They say, this is all I need to get by
The truth is, baby, it's a lie

ooh!

Well is it true what they say about it?
You oughta do what I do and doubt it
He won and know he's gonna do something about it
Ain't it sad?
And if you don't wanna feel like a putz
collect the clues and connect the dots
you see the pattern that is bursting your bubble
And it's bad

See the idiot walk
See the idiot talk
See the idiot chalk up his name on the blackboard
They say, this is all I need to get by
The truth is, baby, it's a lie
its a..
its a lie-ie-ie-ie-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

This is what it boils down to..
If you review the winning combination
Body at work and a mind on vacation
Who had the brain where it started to sink in?
It was you!

You've seen the idiot walk
Seen the idiot talk
But you never learned nothing
And nothing isn't over
See the robot walk
See the robot talk
Still you never learned nothing
And nothing isn't over
They say, this is all I need to get by
The truth is, baby, it's a lie-ie-ie-ie

    General CommentOnce I finally made out what Pelle was saying, I thought the song was about lies, and people who swallow them whole.

    The Hives are a Swedish band.

    I'm Swedish! (To some extent)

    See you at the show.

    General CommentThis song is about someone (like me) who is confused about the current state of politics. With telivision telling us all kinds of mixed messages. (Osama attacks us on US soil and the president vowed to catch him dead or alive but instead we end up catching Saddam, for example.)

    "I got some people saying this way
    I got some people saying that way
    I got some people saying there's no way
    Ain't it tough"

    He is basically saying, it's tough to know which way is the right way when you have everyone telling you something different.

    The general public (myself included, don't get bent about it) is a bunch of idiots. Watch us walk, watch us talk. Watch us write our names on the blackboards because we are WRONG, why are we wrong? because THEY said so. Watch our mindless bodies single file into the voting booth.

    "And if you don't wanna feel like a putz
    Collect the clues and connect the dots
    You'll see the pattern that is
    Bursting your bubble
    And it's bad "

    Pay attention to what is going on around you and use common sense. Make up your own mind. Question authority.

    "You've seen the idiot walk
    See the idiot talk
    But you never learned nothing
    And nothing isn't over"

    You've seen it every day but you never learned anything from it. It's not too late to start now.

    General CommentThis song is about how the general public eats up all the conflicting information fed to us by the media. They give us prescription drugs then tell us they can kill us. They tell you the country is safe from attacks then 2 weeks later they tell you we are on red alert.

    In the last part of the song he is telling us to connect the dots for ourselves and make up our own minds. Take a look around you and use common sense. Don't believe everything they tell you. Question authority. etc...
