Why am I always the last one to say how I feel
It's like driving down the middle of the road with no hands on the wheel
And I keep hearing stories about the guy who was killed while he prayed
Well you should go ahead and say it 'cause we're all gonna die anyway

State your peace, go ahead and say it
I swear it can't get much worse
Make a piece of history, a blessing from a curse
Before it gets worse

You can try and be a hero but people keep dying everyday
You can keep earning money but your money keeps burning away
And it feels like the future's always waiting on the tip of my tongue
Oh, like a cat holding back 'till it's too late the damage is done

State your peace, go ahead and say it
I swear it can't get much worse
Make a piece of history, a blessing from a curse
Before it gets worse

You can try and change the world by showing everyone a better way
But the world's gonna do what the world's gonna do at the end of the day

State your peace, go ahead and say it
I swear it can't get much worse
Make your peace with history, a blessing from a curse
State your peace; blow it wide open
Did you find you an oyster pearl
Make your peace with history
You just might be the one who can change the world
Can you save the world
You can change the world

    General CommentThis Is A Great Song From The Album Looking For Lucky. I Think He Is Talking About When He Is Saying State Your Peace. Just Say What Is On Your Mind. Life Is Shout. Don't Keep Everything In. Say What Bothers You. Get It Off Your Mind. Life Is Shout We Will All Die Someday Anyway.

    General CommentGreat song...bout just saying "how you feel before it's too late". Not only from a political/voting standpoint but just in general.

    My InterpretationI just finished doing a ballet with the members of the band & they told us that this song was written after 9/11 and one of its main influence was seeing the people jumping from the buildings. So the song is very much about dying on your terms as well.
