"Firecracker" as written by and Fred/zabrecky Schneider....
I had a lust. I had a firecracker
I had a love for the sound of this world
I'm still in love its just a stab at laughter
It?s just a mark of the people we are
But don?t be daft no it?s just a monkey business
They?re running signs no remainders of sins
We dealing abstract no pain and no deliverance.
This is a punch I'm not punching up against
Oh, Its all just mirrors laugh and smoke
We are living in some tiny joke
And I'm here to show my love, ambition, dedication out to

Kick the wall smash the lights, ricochets burning up
Firecracker
Firecracker
I will not complain at all
I will never be tricked by you.
No No No
I will never be tricked by you.

I never thought that I would be this ugly
I never thought I would be biting that hand
Defeats the math, this spits the seeds of money
I'm just a shell, I'm a sensitive man
We make a choice to unfold a tiny secret
Put it in lights for the grunt of this place
Is it the same thing to write it as to think it?
I'm chopping noses just to ruin my face.
Break down on the record company
Did you turn you back on me? Or did I turn myself against myself?

I will kick the walls smash the lights, ricochets burning up
Firecracker
Firecracker
I will not complain at all
I will never be tricked by you.
No No No
I will never be tricked by you.

I'm still in love
I set the love in motion
I stare at love with the future we planned
Tell me you feel, this ain't complete emotion
I'm still in love with you baby I am
Oh, did you turn your back on me?
Or did I turn myself against myself?

I'll will kick the walls, smash the lights, ricochets burning up
Firecracker
Firecracker
I will not complain at all
I will never be tricked by you.
No No No
I will never be tricked by you

    General CommentOne thing I noticed - it's actually:

    Is it the same thing to write it as to think it?
    I'm chopping noses just to ruin my face.

    General Commentwrong lyrics:
    DEFEATS THE MATH, this spits the seeds of money

    should be:
    THAT FEEDS THE MOUTH that spits the seeds of money

    General CommentI think that instead of "ricochets burning up"
    it's "rip the shades, burn it all"

    Along with kicking the walls and smashing the lights, it sounds like he's destroying a room.

    And instead of "I stare at love with the future we planned
    Tell me you feel, this aint complete emotion"
    It's "I'm still in love with the future we planned
    tell me you feel the same complete emotion"

    General Commenti wasn't as floored by the new album compared to the ep. i love the verses in this song, but i find that the chorus and bridge are lacking in depth.

    General Commentto me this song has a lot of parallels to Ayn Rand's writing, particularly Atlas Shrugged.

    "Im still in love
    I set the love in motion
    I'm still in love with the future we planned
    Tell me you feel, this aint complete emotion
    Im still in love with you baby I am
    Oh, did you turn your back on me?
    Or did I turn myself against myself?"

    I feel like this is an internal dialogue that Francisco d'Anconia is having with himself whenever he thinks of Dagny. He's still in love with her and wants to be with her, but he can't because he had greater responsibilities to Galt. "I'm still in love with the future we planned." i think that is him saying that he remembers all those years ago when they were talking about how they would each reach the top of their business (francisco-the top of d'Anconia Copper, Dagny-the top of Taggart Transcontinental), and he still feels the same. the "did you turn your back on me" lyric is saying that he misses her a lot and wishes he could still be with her, and then he said "or did i turn myself against myself," which is him debating whether or not he's doing the right thing with the way he's acting.

    "Kick the wall smash the lights, rip the shades, burn it all
    Firecracker
    Firecracker
    I will not complain at all
    I will never be tricked by you."
    i think the wrecking of that metaphorical room is a symbol of what Francisco, John Galt, and Ragnar Danneskjold are doing to the world of the looters and second-handers. by taking away all the industrial power, they are destroying it. Also, they refuse to complain, because that admits defeat and shows that they are powerless against the people trying to destroy them, and they know they have all the power, so they won't complain, and they are smart enough to never be tricked by society as others are.

    General CommentThis is wrong..
    "Im still in love I set the love in motion
    I stare at love with the future we planned
    Tell me you feel, this aint complete emotion"

    Should be..

    "I'm still in love. I said the wrong emotion..
    I'm still in love with the future we planned.
    Tell me to feel, this ain't complete emotion"
