Yeah we say making changes starts in the little things you do.
Revolution begins at home but for most of us it ends there too
We're doing something
We're making changes
Like changing the brand of crap we buy.
We say it makes a difference but that�s just another lie..

It used to be us and them
And you an me..
And now we can't reach our potential without a common enemy
A real war to fight against
Instead of our petty disagreements
How can I rastionalise
My life during war time.. .
Lie..

A call to action and no reaction
Taking our lives in our hands
Insted of sitting around and talking bout the same old shitty bands

But wars going on right now
And I'm not doing anything about it
Without a crowd, I'm not so loud
I can't do anything by myself.
But that's just another lie

    General Commentmainly this song is about how certain bands and people in bands can start wars and become rivals.

    I found this song on LIMEWIRE - a music downloading program like Kazaa
    Just type in Green day as the artist and "other" as the band. You should get it.

    General CommentThis is definently a Pinhead Gunpowder song, which is a Talking Heads cover song. This song has nothing to do with bands "rivaling" it is about living life during a war, go figure huh?

    General Commentthis is not a Talking Heads cover!! this song has nothing to do with Talking Heads! if the title is the same that doesn't mean this is a TH cover! this song is originally by Pinhead Gunpowder and Green Day covered it (on acoustic guitar). I like both versions of this song.

    ok. now what is this song abot? i think it's a little bit confusing.... well, it could be both about war and about rivalry in certain bands... but, for some reason i think it's about rivalry in bands:

    It used to be us and them
    And you an me..
    And now we can't reach our potential without a common enemy
    A real war to fight against
    ....................................
    Without a crowd, I'm not so loud

    It's good, and that's all you need to know.
