The funeral procession passed by here today. Confusion and questions left strewn in its wake. But I feel like I knew his pain–a mechanical failure while enduring the norm. Some of us fracture, others simply deform and lose their elasticity, never to return to the shape they were. I wonder which is worse? I try to keep my composure amidst the insanity, resigned to the truth that I will not live to see the dawn of a better day that might wash away the sadness of this age. I try to keep the voices calling me at bay, desperately clinging to any futile act of human decency. The voices love to remind me of my futility. Sitting on my hands hoping anyone else than me will do what should be done, it’s hard to not succumb as they call my name. You gotta keep on truckin’ anyways.

    General CommentThis song is about a person who has been completely jaded by the hardships and indecency of life fighting the urge to commit suicide. Dark and depressing, the theme of the whole album.

    General CommentI'd say this song is about a guy relating to a man dying from some illness, or just havign a shitty life all together. Since its Propagandhi, its probably society they're relating to. He can't stand the daily hardships of life, and he wishes he was dead like the man (who might have killed himself), but he's gotta keep on truckin' in life.
