Destroy positions of power and what stands between you and the final stretch
Where you find out what happens in the end
Man on the corner preaching, screaming the devil is coming!
And the earth will plummet to the ground again
I hope to death that no one knows and they don't find a way
To bullshit, cheat, lie, and steal
Then run away through the trenches and the streets
The famous alleyway
I've got a feeling that today is not my day
The facts have been stated, they're implausible
The cause of the week
Too heavy for a freak like me
Like me
Hit the brick running with the rhythm in your feet
And all your feelings in a fist
It's too much to resist when you're only 16
Waiting for the weekend train to come
Right outta here
6 strings to the wind and I'm gone
Head on collision with the barrel of our social forms gun
When the shells hit the ground, it's time to go home

Apathetic, we're pathetic, it's easy to see.
The fire's ignited and the flames have gotten the best of me.
Hands up, fists high for everyone to see!
We're destructive, so disruptive, it's gotten to me.
Let's hit the streets and show 'em what we mean. Hey!
We've got the heart and mind to mix in with the gasoline.

Hopping along the border of whats rude and whats insane
It's the same as everyday
Everyday is the same
Still haven't found the answers to the questions I've been asking
And nothing strikes resemblance to the memory I remember
Those days, didn't they seem so long ago?
Free to go wherever we wanted
Free to say no
End of the line and were really wasting time
End of the like and theres no one left behind us
Hit the cobblestone road
Theres precision in the distance
Who gives a fuck if hes a metro-sexual?
I know you did, cause you're a hetero-molestico
Theres malice in the words that first seemed oh so comfortable
Finding a new way can be devastating to some
Look on the bright side, you're not the one toting a gun
You wipe your ass like everybody does
And ask for my reasons
Well I've got none

Hands up!
Fists high!

    General CommentI'm thinking (may be wrong)

    it's about a kid who's looking for answers because he's fed up with people. he wants to be on his own and be himself. saying that the cause of the week is too heavy for a freak like him. like he's labeled as a freak (perhaps because he's a punk or something) and so his opinion doesn't matter and he's sick of it.
    I don't know. great song though.

    My InterpretationTo me, it sounds like a celebration of music and punk. The chorus:

    Apathetic, we're pathetic, it's easy to see.
    The fire's ignited and the flames have gotten the best of me.
    Hands up, fists high for everyone to see!
    We're destructive, so disruptive, it's gotten to me.
    Let's hit the streets and show 'em what we mean. Hey!
    We've got the heart and mind to mix in with the gasoline.

    Just screams to me that spark you get from listening to music in a gig setting and how easily the band can ignite the crowd into a firey, passionate frenzy. For that one moment, everything in life takes a backseat - if you're the type of guy who mistrusts people, everyone in the crowd is your friend, and so on.

    I like Mane Clash's intepretation a lot actually, but it sounds like Chris Cresswell's already got the answers he's looking for.
