"Thank Your Lucky Stars" as written by and Nicholas Lofton Hexum Chad Sexton....
I need a break something inside me said
From TV people counting the dead
A break from all this sadness is what I
Need now, yeah

I've an ache and a loss for words
For apathy I sense in the herd
I've heard 'em and it's senseless no
Questioning it

And what's the point nothing so dull
Could ever on earth be brightened entirely
Just think about it

[Chorus]
Ask me, I'm not blind, I can read all the signs
So many have died, so many out of their minds
Thank your lucky stars you've got it good it's
Not hard
To be what you are, thank your lucky stars

We're in a place I thought we'd never get
People devolved and fought or they fled
But I do not know how we're goin' to get out of
It, whoa

It's a mistake to be paranoid
A mental state that takes strength to avoid
All the hostility and fear should be challenged
Whoa

'Cause what's the point of living that way
So many close their minds to what others say
Which ever feeling you voice

And what's the point, we're gonna pay
Sorted out one way or not we all have that day
So make your choice

[Chorus]

What if there is no ending
And we turn from where we've been
To a place where all we can see
Is light pouring in

And am I really all that far
Far removed from that ending part
With just a faint view
Of the galaxy's misty heart

Why must I think of this until I find
Peace and quiet in the clouding of my mind
There were times I thought I would not come around
But I can tell things are getting OK now

    General Commenti wouldnt say this song is POLITICAL,

    it talks about the horror of the deaths around the world (not just the iraq war), and the people who are apathetic to it all. it kind of encourages people to know whats going on an work for a change.

    it's also a song telling us to be happy we have the life we have in america, where we do have freedoms, and don't live in constant fear.

    General CommentI remain at a loss for words
    Apathy I sense in the hurt
    A colder man is senseless no questioning yet

    And what's the point
    Nothing so dull
    Could ever on Earth be brightened in entirely
    Just think about it
    And what's the point
    Nothing so sly
    Could ever on Earth be enlightened entirely
    Just think about it

    there's two sets of lyrics out there, i dont know which ones are correct, i thought they even had liner notes for this album
