"The Sky Is Falling" as written by Dustin Michael Kensrue, Edward Carrington Breckenridge, James Riley Breckenridge and Teppei Teranishi....
It's coming down
These clouds could never save me
From such a juggernaut of weight
Your dance and jingle cabaret
It's coming down
The shadow's forming on the pavement
We face a watershed of hate
Just miles apart the world's away

[Chorus]
The sky is falling
And no one will live the last sea
The sky is falling
And no one will care as long as it lands over seas

It's coming down
This ship would never save me
My family from certain death
If we could leave, we would have left
It's coming down
My little girl is just a baby
And I'm scared that she wont make her teens
My fear just fuels the hate machine

[Chorus]

[x3]
I'm going to be strong enough
And not let my fear decide my fate
Surrounded by dream goers
I don't want any part of this

[Chorus]

    General CommentOh yeah, I definitely agree that this song is taking a shot at the war in Iraq. But I think Dustin uses WWII to make a comparison.

    As far as terrorists, I think they are more motivated by religious extremism than Jingoism or nationalism. I was talking about how the US does not really fall into the whole Jingoism category

    General Commentby the sky falling, he means bombs falling, as in on our enemies, etc. he's saying that when it happens, the world is in a bad state, people just don't care as long as it's not visible over here.

    General CommentYeah but it means so much more than that too. If you'll notice, Dustin used the word "jingo" in two different places. He rarely uses a word twice and I think when he does he must really want to emphasize it. Jingoism is like really intense nationalism to the point where it becomes aggressive and hateful to other countries. Dustin talks about the US foreign policy right now and how the government feels it is our duty to patrol the world and put out any threat to our reign of power. It definitely talks about the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The "it" referred to is definitely atomic bombs, considering the song says stuff about shadows being burnt into the pavement.

    And Dustin says how this Jingoism and warfare scares him because he wants to see his family live and grow up, and he knows there are other families overseas that feel the same but are facing more direct danger of attack. So he vows not to let this fear turn to panic and then into anger, because that is how wars are started.

    General CommentThis song is not very ambiguous in it's lyrics but are none the less terrific. Sabio pretty much spelled it out. He is putting us in the shoes of some living overseas having to deal with that.
