"Not By a Long Shot" as written by Logan Christian Laflotte, Alex Burton, Jesse Burton, Jeff Widner and Mike Smeen....
Get a pen, make a list of your crimes and then hand it over.
Who says you can't switch sides? It's that simple.
And you can't make mistakes, but as men we are able to folly.
You say that's just fine. That makes no sense.

They'll throw that book at us,
And they're aiming for our young but they'll miss by a long shot.
Yeah not by a long shot
Will we join them?

Cause you're old and you're scared,
It's the luxury of youth that allows us to see a different side.
Do you remember?
A sudden surge of the tide,
Saw it wash away life I say that we can prevent this.
You say it's a sign. Aren't you lucky?

    General Commenti get a vibe from that this song implies humanities carelessness and abandonment to eachother and the earth. at first our wrongs ("crimes") and 'handed over' to maybe something/one greater? im mean, maybe a god of some sort? no? yes? okok...and then

    "they'll throw the book at us"...the older generations so used to the conformed to the way things are will reject the us, the young. they'll give up. "and they're aiming for our young but they'll miss by a long shot." but we move on and progress without them. "it's the luxury of youth that allows us to see a different side."
