What meant so much now doesn’t mean a thing
It’s been thrown around and fucking thrown away
I don’t know what happened to change all this
But I hate it, I want to bring it back
It’s not cool anymore now to show your pride
It’s cool to sell out what you have inside
Where did all the feeling go? It died
What’s left? What’s there?
I want to feel alive
Stand tall, stand strong
Is there anybody that still cares?
Half the kids we looked up to
And those who sang their heart felt songs
They packed their bags and split
And they left the edge, and they didn’t give a shit
Now, we’re “the kids with broken hearts”
We’re “The hardest kids with X’s by our names”
Our numbers aren’t as high,
but we wear the name without shame
What’s left? Who’s there?
I want to feel alive
Stand tall, stand strong
Is there anybody that still fucking cares?
I still fucking care
I’m tired of watching it go
We’re an army dropping like flies
It doesn’t seem like it’s real anymore
When everybody runs, everybody dies

    General CommentOk, any idiot can see the Carry On references in this song. What I want to know is are they saying that Carry On sold out? Some of the lines seem to suggest that, like this:

    "they left the edge, and they didn’t give a shit
    Now, we’re “the kids with broken hearts”
    We’re “The hardest kids with X’s by our names” "

    Are they just quoting Carry On for effect, or are they saying that Carry On sold out?

    Someone with a clue, please answer.
