This was the year when the courts made the decision to add some years to our wait. And how can we not, when forbidden bedfellows got together to make sure girls who love girls and boys who love boys won’t have the same right that they give bigots and murderers. Now, I’m not trying to make you sad, but that’s a right I don’t want to have at all. I’m sorry, that’s a right I don’t want to have. I don’t want to have. No. I don’t want to have. No, the wait won’t be bad. No, the wait won’t be bad—it wont be bad. Keep this as an I.O.U.

On a day with downed power I’m just thinking of ways I can sleep better at night—and I’ll always be sleeping next to you. I’m not changing the world, I know. I’m just doing what I think is right, and when the laws change so will the way we pay our taxes. I’m just doing what I think is right.

    General CommentThis song the balls. Definitely Shook Ones at their top.
    I think it's about a guy who doesn't want to marry his girlfriend as an act of civil disobedience, saying that he doesn't want the right since homosexual men and women aren't afforded that same right.
    Pretty political for a pop-punk band, eh?

    General CommentEver been to their myspace? It says pop-punk/hardcore.
    They have both pop-punk qualities and melodic hardcore qualities.
