"Up the Cuts" lyics as written by Laura Jane Grace....
I can't sleep
Dry red eyes wide open
Starin' at the white stucco ceiling
Turn on the TV
Watch music on television
Have I heard this song before, did this already happen?

Derived influence
In style of dress
Similar trends in camera technique and editing
Sync up the cuts (sync up the cuts)
To the bass drum kick (to the bass drum kick)
All the taste-makers drinking from the same glass

Is there anybody thinking what I am?
Is there anybody thinking what I am?

Are you restless like me?
Are you restless like me?
Are you restless like me?

And all the insiders rumor
About a decline in sales
All the buzz is happening in the new digital market place
FBI warning
Printed on the flip side
Under penalty of law piracy will be prosecuted

And in MRR (and in MRR)
Someone asks the question (someone asks the question)
With the instant availability of information
And content so easily obtainable
Is the culture now a product that's disposable?
Are the punks still singing the same song?

Is there anybody thinking what I am?
Is there any other alternative at all?

Are you restless like me?
Are you restless like me?
Are you restless like me
Like me?

    General CommentI like this song.
    But,
    It's definately not as good as the stuff on Reinventing Axl Rose. Unfortunately, I'm begining to doubt that AM! will ever make anything as good as that ever again.

    General Commentlets not trick ourselves. Theyre not the same band. Reinventing axl rose was in my personal opinion the greatest album ever made. New wave is...adequet, bland, and nothing to remember. This would be fine if it wasnt everything against me! isnt. I think that some of the songs on this album fit into the catagory of the type of music tom is sick of hearing.
    I turn on the TV,
    watch music on television.
    Have I heard this song before?
    Did this already happen?

    I hate to admit it, but against me! was on mtv last night, and they didnt burn it down, they didnt tear it up, they played in the backround of the hills.

    General Commentdoes it bother anyone else that they sing more freaking songs about the music industry and how MTV sucks and how they are bored with their music but still play it anyway and blah blah blah all this crap.. they sing more about their music then they do about politics and important things in life anymore.. kinda selfish in a way dont you think?

    General Commenti suggest to you and any AM! fan to read their AP article in the latest issue.

    it clears a lot of stuff up.
