"Army Men" as written by and Jessica Poland....
In the death of the atmosphere they all stood in a row
Kicking one another, calling out names
And crying about the don't know

Oh, I'm alone if I know it
I'm alone if I, I show it

So army men pick up your feet
We cannot settle for a quick defeat
Oh, don't dare cry

So lose some battles but win out the war
'Cause tears are selfish and you aren't anymore
Oh, don't dare cry

In the absence of gratitude, we all feel alone
And we all become prisoners
And that disgusting formidable road

Oh, don't dare cry
Oh, I'm alone if I know it
I'm alone if I show it

So army men pick up your feet
We cannot settle for a quick defeat
Oh, don't dare cry

So lose some battles but win out the war
'Cause tears are selfish and you aren't anymore
Oh, don't dare cry, cry, oh cry, oh cry
Oh, don't dare cry

So army men pick up your feet
We cannot settle for a quick defeat
Oh, don't dare cry

So lose some battles but win out the war
'Cause tears are selfish and you aren't anymore
Oh, don't dare cry

    General CommentFirst comment! Yay!

    I think it's about a person who is afraid to show her feelings. And now she thinks she would be better crying once in awhile.

    I'm not quite sure.

    Oh, and Charlotte really has talent. Great music!

    General CommentNow when I listen to it, I think of a whole other meaning.

    Now I think the people "kicking one another and calling out names" are people who don't really care about what is going to become of our world.

    And people like Charlotte are an "army" of people who actually DO realize something's wrong and now they are trying to stop it from happening and she's telling them not to give up.

    I might not have explained that really clearly, but it makes better sense in my mind.
