"Them" as written by Dolores Mary O'riordan and Noel Hogan....
Don't listen to what they say,
Make up your mind, walk away,
Oh don't even give them the time of day,
They put you wrong, turn away.

So why'd they all just walk away,
There was something wrong,
But you don't want to say.

Oh why did they listen to someone else,
I did something wrong,
Something...[Drum crash]

Oh that attitude,
They all got that attitude.

Something they say,
Make up your mind, walk away,
Oh oh never happen again,
They've all gone wrong, gone insane.

That's why they all just walked away,
There was nothing wrong,
Didn't want to say.
Oh that's why they listened to somebody else,
I did nothing wrong,
Nothing I could say.

That's why, that's why,
That's why, that's why,

    General CommentI think this song is dealing with a friend that was scorned by people and she is telling her don't worry about it they don't know what they are talking about. The same thing happened to her and she is saying just walk away because nothing she will do will change their minds, because they will listen to other people instead of the person who knows the truth.
    Don't listen to what they say,
    Make up your mind, walk away,
    Oh don't even give them the time of day,
    They put you wrong, turn away.

    So why'd they all just walk away,
    There was something wrong,
    But you don't want to say.

    That is where she is telling her friend just give it up.

    Oh why did they listen to someone else,
    I did something wrong,
    Something...

    This is what the others said.

    That's why they all just walked away,
    There was nothing wrong,
    Didn't want to say.
    Oh that's why they listened to somebody else,
    I did nothing wrong,
    Nothing I could say.

    This is when she gave up because she knew they wouldn't listen.
