Hop on the bandwagon and ride
No need for guarantees
Precautions all aside you've got it all

You're under their submission
A very low and poor condition
And we know it's all our fault, yet here we are

With our motionless intentions
Settling for silence over opposition
Choosing just to listen

Sound all the alarms
There's been a change of plans
You're breaking up and I can't even feel the difference
Sound all the alarms
There's been a change of plans
You're breaking up and I can't even feel the difference

Honestly you're on a one track mind
You parade a modern march
That's falling far behind from who you are

You have our full attention
After all we've failed to mention
That this all our fault, cause here we are

With our motionless intentions
Settling for silence over opposition
Choosing just to listen

Sound all the alarms
There's been a change of plans
You're breaking up and I can't even feel the difference
Sound all the alarms
There's been a change of plans
You're breaking up and I can't even feel the difference

You're breaking up
You're breaking up

We're calling out to you with all we have tonight
We need your voice to sing along, so sing along

    General CommentYay! First one to comment! I love Run Kid Run...one of my many iTunes discoveries.

    This song feels like it’s about people who let modern society dictate their every move, like sardines in a bait ball. People do tend to jump on a mind-numbing bandwagon thinking, “ooh, everyone does such and such, so I can do it too and not get caught/hurt/etc.” You think you have it all but in actuality, you have no freedom; you’re doing what “everyone else is doing”, you’re under submission to the dictates of the masses.

    Eventually when people call for change or try to shed light on the reality of the situation, many become blind (or in this case, numb – “You’re breaking up and I can’t even FEEL the difference”) to their call out. Motionless Intentions – the fact of the matter is that while we feel we have the freedom to step up and do all the good in the world, or to provoke change, we don’t act on our intentions, especially if we're following society since what matters most is what others think of us. The more we follow, the more we depart from our individuality
    (Honestly you're on a one track mind
    You parade a modern march
    That's falling far behind from who you are)

    Anyways, that’s how I see this song; it’s about someone who is different and is “calling you out”, trying to awaken you from your hypnotic need to follow the masses. Cool song, love the band.
