We are not statistics populated by goverment authorities
They are raping minds and building kids to sell

Ruin your make up and wash it down
Tear your magazines, don't join the crowd
We are not a part of what they say
We are the majority

A million questions running out of our mouths
Oh ,by the way,
No one seems to care
Oh, by the way,
By the way
Won't you sell yourself to misery
Cause talk is cheap and so are we

Well the media it's spinning
It's goddamn out of control
Don't sell out

There is no truth in what they say
Don't rape her mind
She's so beautiful
My tender girl, she's so untouchable
Protect yourself and just close your eyes
We are all american eyes

A million questions running out of our mouths
Oh ,by the way,
No one seems to care
Oh, by the way,
By the way
Won't you sell yourself to misery
Cause talk is cheap and so are we

Sell yourself for what you need
The way you live your life
You're never gonna be free

Cause we're in love
Oh, we're so in love
With the girl with the broken heart
Who's the girl with the broken heart
We're in love
And she bleeds on me

    General CommentFirst one to comment ^_^. But I seriously love this song. It's pretty much talking about a girl he's in love with that seems 'fraglie' to him. Well thats what I think at least.

    General CommentThis song is awesome. I think it's about how people always sell out, but this guy's girl doesn't conform to anything.

    General Commenti think it's all about the media and how its always bullshitting you. and he loves the girl. she's real and doesn't believe in all the media and he wants to protect her from it.

    General CommentI don't think there's a specific girl, I think the message is for all young women, even men, living in america that are asked to be something they aren't.

    this song is amazing
    i love it
    i think its talking about how to just be yourself and dont follow the crowd
    'Ruin your make up and wash it down
    Tear your magazines, don't join the crowd'
    and about how they arnt free cuz they are in love and love really isnt free is just a pain in the ass...

    General CommentThis song makes me cry. I don't want this broken heart but my x boufriend hurt me physically and mentally. I lived him. He broke my heart and I don't want it. I broke up with him so I wouldn't put up with it anymore.. All it has done is break my heart more. I feel I need him and want to be with him but I can't . I can't go back to hitting and arguing. It's so hard. I want to be with him but he won't change. after a year you would think he would change but no. I never know If I made the right decision or not. My fily things so but he's always in the back of my mind . By far the most pain I've ever had and to top it off my dad has cancr agan.... It sucks to not have anyone cuz u gave them all up for a relationship....
