"Our Misunderstanding" as written by and Anthony M Scalzo Jeffrey Robert Trott....
Rip out the trees and plant your flag
Now I know just where you stand
Nature means nothing to you
Something that you can't control
And we make ourselves miserable
Trying to fill the hole

It's sad that our misunderstanding
Has turned into a war
I don't know you anymore

How was I supposed to know
I was steppin' on your toes
The momentum builds to a fever pitch
Talkin' but I just can't hear
Watchin' our problems multiply
Wishin' they would disappear

It's sad that our misunderstanding
Has turned into a war
I don't know you anymore, anymore
And our love got lost in the translation
And when I see you out
You're a stranger to me now
You're a stranger to me now

I, I wish I could talk to you
I wish I could make you see
How much I care
How much you mean to me

That our misunderstanding
Has turned into a war
I don't know you anymore, anymore
And our love got lost in the translation
And when I see you out
You're a stranger to me now
You're a stranger to me now

    General CommentI think this is a comment on the destructive nature of human society.

    The first verse seems to be a comment on the way we abuse the earth. We are constantly extracting from the earth something that we think will "fill the hole", but in the end, profiting nothing, and only destroy the environment.

    I think the rest of the song expands on that point and tries to state that human carelessness and selfishness leads to misunderstanding, which in turn, leads to war and havoc. We try to extract from others without ever giving back, and "make ourselves miserable" -- losing touch with true humanity ("You're a stranger to me now").

    Any thoughts?

    He seems to think that if we would be proactive, instead of just "Watchin' our problems multiply/ Wishing they would disappear"
