"Jumping Ships" as written by and Randy Edelman....
This is where I'm from
This is where I belong
You will never know Reno straight edge
We will never fall
Reno straight edge
The tragedy of your friends giving up
Will be the hardest thing in life to
Comprehend, this stops here
Start jumping ships, sellouts always sink
A thousand fucking time
We took your knifes in our backs
One too many times we've taken your ass back
Your bridge has burned right to my fucking ground
Start jumping ships, sellouts always sink

    General CommentI don't know but it sounds like this song is in the point of view of a real straightedge person, and all the fake straightedge people around him/her. Like you know how a person claims edge but they're only doing it for the title and not what it stands for.
    OR it could be about how all the people that are into drinking and drugs bash the people that choose edge because they're a bunch of 'pussies'. Just a thought, it's probably not even close to the real meaning though.

    General CommentI think by 'We took your knifes in our backs
    One too many times we've taken your ass back
    Your bridge has burned right to my fucking ground'
    they mean that the people who stabbed them in the back, they've forgiven, people stab them in the back again, they aren't forgiven.
    It funny how friends or lovers become enemies so quickly, how love turns to hate in less than 60 seconds.

    General Commenti love this song
    about staying true (straight edge)
    and people around you giving in
    which turns into broken friendships

    General Commenti think it's about straightedge friends who give up their beliefs and fall in line with everyone else. they start drinking and smoking and doing drugs because it's what's normal and "cool".
