"Drones In The Valley" as written by Matt Shultz, Brad Shultz, Jared Champion, Daniel Tichenor and Lincoln Parish....
While bullets shower the earth
We turn our heads and cover our faces
Now flames devour the sky
And I hear these words in the back of my Mind

Here we stand at this fork in the road
We got no time to waste
Oh which way shall we go?
This old world's spinning out of control
Oh which way shall we go?
Which way shall we go?
I can't believe this, it makes me sick

Fresh smell of death on your tongue
You bait the hook and here come the children
Another grave stone to sell
While you get rich in the valley of hell

Here we stand at this fork in the road
We got no time to waste
Oh which way shall we go?
This old world's spinning out of control
Oh which way shall we go?
Which way shall we go?
I can't believe this, it makes me sick

The devil's creeping
He's got us eating from his dirty hands
We feast on lies
Which makes it hard for us to make a stand
Out in the desert
There's a forest full of fallen trees
It's what they want
But it's not what we need

Screaming at the ceiling
Doesn't make it better
Slipped into a coma
Lost my favorite sweater
Ask them no more questions
You'll never catch them lying
It's time to make our move
And strike them right between the eyes

Here we stand at this fork in the road
We got no time to waste
Oh which way shall we go?
This old world's spinning out of control
Oh which way shall we go?
Which way shall we go?
I can't believe this, it makes me sick

    General Commentwell that part about out in the desert there is a forest of fallen trees, could mean we dont need to cut down the forests and stuff but we do anyways, screaming at the ceiling isnt gonna make it better, could be debating it out with people wont make it better cause there so ignorant that they wont listen to whats right. The devil's creeping
    He's got us eating from his dirty hands
    we feast on lies
    Which makes it hard for us to make a stand
    Out in the desert
    There's a forest full of fallen trees
    It's what they want
    But it's not what we need-the devils creeping and us eating out of his hands means that we are listening to anything that will make us feel better about the issues were having

    Fresh smell of death on your tongue
    You bait the hook and here come the children
    Another grave stone to sell
    While you get rich in the valley of hell

    people are killing in say a war and we are "Baiting the hook" getting kids to come and go to war just to fuel the fire to our battle that is useless and its another grave stone to sell cause were are just killing people for a needless cause, they can have their money in hell for all they care.

    the fork in the road is a typical metifore about making a tough decision, we need to make a quick decision and it makes them sick because they need to think about a decision rather than choose the right one quickly the world is out of control

    General CommentThis song is pretty much about the evils of big business and the media. We turn our faces away from what is important, like wars, and are raised from youth to live in our own little box. We "feast on lies" that "the man" or the media feeds us. THere are tons of things that are more important and bigger than our lives, like genocides, massacres, and poverty. And ading a nice call to action at the end, he says we cant just yell at the box we were put in, but we need to "strike them right between the eyes. But we have an option, and should make the right one

    General CommentPersonally I see this as them being extremely anti-war about America's war in Iraq ("Out in the desert").
    How the government wants it, but it's not what we need ("It's what they want, but it's not what we need") but rather than protest, we all just pretend the deaths happening over there aren't really happening/just follow along, or rather "slipped into a coma" or "cover our eyes" or "you bait the hook and here come the children"
    but that's just what I got. I'd love to hear other opinions!
