"Sillyworld" as written by James Donald Root, Shawn Economaki, Josh Rand and Corey Todd Taylor....
Freedom's just a word today, freedom's just a word
When someone takes your word away, it's seldom ever heard
So take a sentence full of things you're not supposed to say
Carry on, but don't write 'em down, or you'll be gone

Love is just a song today, love is just a song
When someone takes the song away, you seldom sing along
So take those lyrics serious and sing your life away
Carry on, but don't write 'em down, or they'll be gone

All we ever do is talk; we like to ride, but we never walk
We make it so damn easy, we get bored
Why can't anybody see, what's good for you is good for me?
I can't take your silly world
I can't take your silly world no more

Peace is just two fingers now, peace was just a face
When someone put it on a shirt, you knew to count the days
So take those fingers, tape 'em up, and shove 'em up your ass
And carry on, but don't try it now, 'cause peace is gone

All we ever do is talk; we like to ride, but we never walk
We make it so damn easy, we get bored
Why can't anybody see, what's good for you is good for me?
I can't take your silly world
I can't take your silly world no more

We fight our instincts
We go to extremes
We fight our instincts
We go to extremes

We fight our lives
We fight our lives
We fight our lives
We fight our lives
We fight our lives
We fight our lives
We fight our lives
We fight our

We fight our lives
We fight our lives
We fight our lives
We fight our lives
We fight our lives
We fight our lives

    General CommentIt's all sarcasm in my opinion. When he says to shove those fingers up your ass, I don't think he really meant it as such.

    It's like Tool's Stinkfist or Prison Sex. Cruel topic with loads of interpretation. Don't get me wrong now, this ain't no Tool song but still... Ah fuck it.

    All in all it's like... APC's cover of John Lennon's Imagine. All the emotuion is drained from the song, sung to the tune of a nazi-like piano chord. It enhances the "We've fucked up" aspect of the song.

    And in truth, we have fucked up. We have to take this seriously, and make songs like these a thing of the past...

    Oh, there's something there...

    "Love is just a song today
    Love is just a song
    When someone takes the song away
    You'll seldom sing along
    So take those lyrics serious and sing your life away
    and carry on but don't write 'em down or they'll be gone"

    Criticism for those that sing this song and others covering similar topics, but doing nothing at all to cause change for the better.
