Some say it's a combat zone,
Trying to protect all the things that we own,
From the dare unknown.

Some say we can't complain,
This favoured side of the earth our domain,
While the other side shudders in pain.

-Chorus-
Some say we're all the same.
Stone throwers living inside a glass cage.

Some say that those who reign with all their power should take all the blame
And our powerless disdain - it's so easy.

-Chorus-

To say we're all the same-
Each staggered birth born with the same love,
Each weary breath worthy of the same hope.

-Chorus-

    My InterpretationI think it's about world poverty.

    "Some say it's a combat zone, Trying to protect all the things that we own, From the dark unknown"
    I think this line is abut how in the world today it's every man for himself. You have to make sure to keep your share and some people (the rich) take more than they have to to survive just because they can, and this is how they justify it.

    "Some say we can't complain, This favoured side of the earth our domain, While the other side shudders in pain."
    And this one is really obvious. The favoured side of the earth can't complain because there are others out there who has it worse.

    "Some say we're all the same. Stone throwers living inside a glass cage."
    This obviosly refers to the old saying: Don't throw rocks in a glass house. (at least that's a saying here in sweden) Anyway, it means that us humans are the stone throwers. We can't help but destroy (in this case) our planet. And our planet is our "cage" because we can't escape and it's very fragile (made of glass). So we're basically making everything crumble around us and we have nowhere to go.

    "Some say that those who reign with all their power should take all the blame
    And our powerless disdain - it's so easy."
    And here we have another clear one. Some do say that the world leaders should take the blame for all the injustice in the world. And it really is much easier to blame it on them, because then the rest of us don't have to feel bad about it.

    To say we're all the same- Each staggered birth born with the same love, Each weary breath worthy of the same hope.
    Here's the irony in saying that everybody is born with the same chance in life. Because that is not true in some cases.

    So it all adds up!

    General CommentI've never seen or heard Johnny Hollow explain their songs, so I'll explain what I think this song represents now :)

    This sounds to me like it's a story about children coming from a divorced household. "Some say it's a combat zone, trying to protect all the things we own" is like parents fighting over the child. You know, like they have some weekends or the clothing or other crap.
    "Some say we can't complain, the favoured side of the world our domain whilst the other side shudders in pain" That could go for any family. That the children can't complain about what food they eat or whatever, because they have to "best" of it.
    "Stone throwers living inside a glass cage" is to me a reference to the children. Children are kind of like that...they live inside a "glass cage" where they can see everything, but never go out and touch it or do it. They have stones, but if they throw it at the glass cage it'll break. The people who desperately want to go to the world can go out and break it, but that was their only safe place. Like when a child leaves for college or something.
    "Some say that those who reign with all their power should take all the blame. And our powerless disdain...it's so easy" is like children saying it's not their fault, it really is their parents, but they won't admit that.
    "Each staggered birth born with the same love" is like that they loved the child as a baby, both parents were together and things, but then "each weary breath worthy of the same hope" is like that when the parents are reminded that the child is alive and under their responsibility, and they can't change that.

    Good lord, that took a while.
