"American Death" as written by and James Anthony Buddy Nielsen Daniel Gerard Trapp....
Is this the end of my life or just the end of the world
Skeletons rule the cities as the innocent burn
And if you stand and fight with you black flag tonight
They'll put tape on your mouth as they kiss you goodbye

Dance [x4]
Come dance with me, come dance with me
Dance [x4]
Dance Dance, come dance, come dance with me

You know you can't stay neutral
On a moving train
So pick a fucking side
And place the blame
'Cause there's nothing worse
Than a bird with wings who doesn't fly

So wake up and smell the flowers today
Don't they reek of shit and bloody money
There's not an ounce of love that's left in the world
You're not alive any more your a possible sale

Dance [x4]
Come dance with me, come dance with me
Dance [x4]
Dance Dance, come dance, come dance with me

You know you can't stay neutral
On a moving train
So pick a fucking side
And place the blame
'Cause there's nothing worse
Than a bird with wings who doesn't fly

There's still war on page six
America don't die like this
There's still war on page six
A-ME-RI-CA!
There's still war on page six
America don't die like this
There's still war on page six
America don't die like this

You know you can't stay neutral
On a moving train
So pick a fucking side
And place the blame
'Cause there's nothing worse
Than a bird with wings who doesn't

You know you can't stay neutral
On a moving train
So pick a fucking side
And place the blame
'Cause there's nothing worse
Than a bird with wings who doesn't fly

    General CommentThis song is absolute shit, hopefully this was just a one time thing for them. Now I love Senses Fail, I liked them before everyone even knew about them, but this, what the hell is this, this is not your poetic, melodic, music that Senses Fail are known for and looked up to for.

    General Commentthis song is about, to me at least, about how in theses hostile political times you're forced to choose a side to be on whether you like it or not. no one allows you to be neutral, or just stay out of it, you're either republican or democrat and thats it. the bridge is about and where the song gets its name is about how this war will be end or death of america, and he(buddy) is pleading that america shouldn't do this to itself

    General CommentThe true meaning of the song if you haven't noticed is the fact that we got involved in a war. We can't just stop now like the people want us to hence the line "There's still war on page six, America don't die like this." Also, there is two sides, those for, and those against the war hence the line "pick a fucking side". Then "place the blame" in turn means you blame the U.S. for getting in the war or you blame the middle east. There is no neutrality. What brings me to the point that the song is pro-war is the line that says "cause there's nothing worse than bird with wings who doesn't fly." The path of war was inevitable (moving train) and since we had the power to retaliate or act (bird with wings) it would be wrong not to (who doesn't fly).

    I think my "analysis is fairly accuracte. Use support it helps. AMERICANS UNITE
