"Another Know It All" as written by and Peter/loeffler Loeffler....
Damn you're so dull
Still need to borrow your hate
Change what they can
Persuade us back under cover
Oh old you're so over
Who made you king of the ages
Tending the wounds
Thinking of adding another
But the
Chosen never wrong
He sat holding
Several thoughts
I'll take anything
That's not bolted down
Tricking us in, don't get along if they're brothers
So phasing it out, correcting vision with fists
And drawing a line, still give it less than a week
Checking the wounds, thinking of adding another
Free what's bolted down

    General Commentwhiteout, I like to think all songs like this are about GWB. When I first read the lyrics I even said to myself, "it's gotta be about Bush." But the line, "don't get along if they're brothers" honestly reminded me of the band oasis lol. I am not sure what it's about, could be about Bush, but it's sad to say that I think it's about something much deeper. Remember that these are brothers.

    Third Person, talking about one of his brothers or himself. They don't get along because they are brothers. And you know where you share a room with a sibling? And you draw a line that you cannot cross.... Im thinking that thats what "And drawing a line" means and "Give it less than a week" meaning the line won't stop anything for a long time. "Checking the wounds" He is checking his wounds he has gotten from fighting with his brothers and he thinks that hes gonna fight again to get more wounds "Thinking of adding another"

    I dunno, just a guess. :)

    General Commenti listen to all of their songs, but this one, i just listen to less, i guess I'm not alone, there aren't many responses on it, but i think i'll add one just cause i can. i can never decifer when a song is about GWB unless they say "this song is about bush alright?" . i like the part about their sibling rivalry. i know how that goes. But my sister acts like she's a know-it-all.
    That's probably why they titled the song as they did.

    but I mean, everyone hates on bush just because he's the one in power. America has to blame someone. the one thing we know is that he does screw us over alot, but on the other hand, we could be under the executive power of someone alot worse, like stalin, or an Al-Queda (hope i spelt it right). Dont get mad at me though, I'm not taking Bush's side.

    General Commentgod people, take the political bs out of this, you can read politics into everything if you look hard enough, so just treat it as music.
    I love this song, hard to explain. but i love the guitar, letting loose and harsher lyrics. chevelle is always good with this kinda music

    General CommentWell, this is songmeanings.net. And I do see some political reference myself and sorry if you do not, it's all how we connect with it. And I believe brothers doesn't necessarily mean siblings. Brothers can be a metaphor. Humankind, or in the US maybe it's your nieghbor... who knows? That is how I interpret many songs. Many Artists like to use metaphors for things. But that's just my opinion. I think it's about forcing people into thinking one way, his way, with the use of force. Maybe its just how this society is trying to take us back, instead of moving forward. I find that in a lot of the songs on this album.
