(This is an exact duplicate from the cd booklet, spacing and all)

I'm sorry if I'm low and dirty
and mean and cold
God told me to
it's all for you
For what it's worth
this is my bag of snow
Just let me show you

It's not brave to be unkind
I can't speak the truth
that is lacking in this
ornate corporate Christmas tree
the fire starts to seethe
I won't take the blame
for the rude desires
this lack of shame

Theme parks and hallmarks
and sermons and pop songs
and impotence and innocence
just make me angry
I'm sorry if I'm low and dirty
I'm sorry if I sit too high
We all gotta get by

I don't need another page
to tell me the words
It's not right
It's not right
Let's be honest
this bullsh*t doesn't make you high
It's time to fly
Don't you know how to fly?
Don't you know how to fly?
Formulas and divas
and holiness and hollowness
and empty campaigns
just make me angry

Theme parks and hallmarks
and sermons and pop songs
and impotence and innocence
just make me angry
Dont you know how to fly?

    General Comment"Don't you know hwo to fly, boy?"/"Don't you know how to fly?" = one of the best lyrics ever uttered in any song.

    I personally prefer Tremor to this one, but this ones still alright. Too talky, though.


    The song meaning? Uhh... I guess it's describing exactly the motive behind the formation of Johnny Hollow. They hate generic poppy crap for one, to the point where they'd probably willingly murder Britney or J-lo. Probably. And they seem to be anti-society, against everything... well, read the lyrics to get a better idea.

    Song MeaningI think you're right to a degree, but I don't think it's just about the fact that they don't agree with the popular music. I believe that they are talking about how so many things just don't have a meaning anymore, there is no real underlying meaning to anything anymore. People used to write to inspire theirselves and others as well and many people don't do that anymore. Basically I think they are saying everything is just hollowed out and pointless because there is nothing to it anymore.
