You’re not really mad at Iran or Afghanistan. You’re mad at the fact that your wife can’t stand you anymore. You don’t know where she is. You’re going crazy in your basement hole. Clicking your remote control. Spitting insults at the screen because tomorrow you’re back at work, where you can’t stand being the little man. Despite your groveling you can’t get ahead. No one really laughs at your stories anymore. You’re too cynical and mean so they’ve fucked off bored. Your kids are at the mall. They just sit and stare at the walls. You think you tell it like it is. You say you can’t stand bleeding hearts but every single day you just sit there bleeding for yourself. You whine and cry in your manly voice. This is your life. You do it to yourself. Take the load off your mind. Go out into the world. You’ll see you’ll probably survive. This is your life.

    General CommentI dunno but I get the feeling this song is about a soldier and the downsides of being in the war. Such as not being able to spend time with your family.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about how easy it is to manipulate public opinion against forces that have very little real impact in our lives day to day. The American public has had their day-to-day anger with their boring lives manipulated into angst against countries for War multiple times. This song captures that sentiment well.
