Hey you with all your secrets the story has just begun
We see right through your scare tactics
And your feeble attempts at diversion
Make no difference, make no difference who’s to blame
Cause the only thing left that’s constant is a change
I say you better move if you can’t lend a hand
Cause we’re gonna make our own way,
Sun is setting on your dark day
Whose to blame, said who’s to blame

Yes you, Mr. Untouchable, your pointing all your fingers through
Putting guns in the hands of our children,
Are their lives just a game to you?
Tell me is your money that good? Will it buy you a love?
Do you think that it could?
The wheels still spinning and it’s coming around
All it takes is a spark to burn it all down

Move your body round, I say I won’t let it fade out
Move your body down, we can’t let it fade out

You Mr. Elation, with all your perfect plans for peace,
Until the power of love can exceed the love of power
You know it can never, never be,
Makes no difference, makes no difference who’s to blame
Cause the only thing left that’s constant is a change
You better move if you can’t lend a hand
Cause were gonna make it our own way,
Sun is rising to a brighter day who’s to blame?

    General CommentClearly this song is about Mr. Untouchable A.K.A. The President. This song sums up all of the horribly insane things the government does and gets away with because no one does anything to stop them. When all it takes is a spark to burn it all down.

    For instance it makes no difference who is elected to lead The United Snakes Of America because all that person is, is a puppet being controlled by whom ever the puppeteer is, some other apathetic android.

    Matt Embree feels as though we can make a change for the better. "Sun is rising to a brighter day who's to blame?" This means when in fact we do make that change it won't really matter who's to blame.

    General CommentAmen to that Skepsis, I think you're dead on. "Until the power of love can exceed the love of power" -- gave me chills when I first heard that line. He definitely is directing this song at President Bush and all the other corrupt government officials who use the "best interest of the people" as a front for all their evil doings.

    General Comment"Until the power of love can exceed the love of power" i think this is a Hendrix quote paraphrased. RX Bandits, still a great band live. Such power.

    General Comment"Will it buy you a love?
    Do you think that it could?"

    I'm sure that's part of a Bob Dylan song aswell, that Matt sings acoustic on a video somewhere, except with the word forgiveness instead of love.
    The song's called Masters Of War.
