"Absolutely No Decorum" as written by Ola Salo, Jens Sven-orjan Andersson, Martin Karl Axen Persson, Mikael Jepson, Lars Henrik Ljungberg and Sylvester David Olof Schlegel....
Thank God I was born in a time
When something new was about to start
Been shut down, I've been kicked around
Now there's an A-bomb in my heart
And I know that the times are rough
But I won't play dead while I'm alive
So hang on and we'll turn up the sound
Of all the anger in our hearts

'Cause right now under this fevering moon
I wanna take you for a ride
To the reasons you need,
Be it hunger or greed, it's ok

Tell me a joke and make me smile
Play me the part, be the star for a while
Absolutely no decorum whatsoever, baby

Gimme a wink, let me know you're alive
Do what you will, we're only here for a while
Absolutely no decorum whatsoever, baby
Absolutely no decorum whatsoever, baby

And I know that the times are rough
But I won't play dead while I'm alive
For I long for the shock and the awe
Of speaking plainly from my mind
But I know there's a place downtown
Where they say there's a bug-free zone
So let's go, let's head out tonight
And let the words in our minds spill out

'Cause right now under this fevering moon
I wanna take you for a ride
To the reasons you need, be it hunger or greed
It's all and a little bit more as we come alive again

Tell me a joke and make me smile
Play me the part, be the star for a while
Absolutely no decorum whatsoever, baby

Gimme a wink, let me know you're alive
Do what you will, we're only here for a while
Absolutely no decorum whatsoever, baby
Absolutely no decorum whatsoever, baby

It's only ripples in the sand
It's only ripples in the sand
It's only ripples in the sand

    Song MeaningHmmm no comments? Good song. Well, sounds like he's talking about enjoying life while we can without restrictions or concerns about moral behavior. I love the line "I won't play dead while I'm alive." A strong statement about what living means to him.
