"About Face" as written by Christopher Robert Bear, Daniel Raphael Rossen, Christopher M. Taylor and Edward Droste....
Without a trace
Makes me wonder
The staged race
Has no thunder
This is the case
Of our plunder

It's a fight for one
Time for faith with all

About face
Makes me wonder
And in this case

There is no thunder
A bit of grace
In our plunder

It's a fight for one
Time for faith with all

It's a fight for one
Time for faith with all

It's a fight for one
Time for faith with all

    General CommentWithout a trace
    Makes me wonder
    A staged race
    Has no thunder
    This is the case
    Of our plunder

    It's a fire for what?
    Time for faith we thought

    About face
    Makes me wonder
    And in this case
    There is no thunder
    A bit of grace
    In our plunder

    It's a fire for what?
    Time for faith we thought

    It's a fire for what?
    Time for faith we thought

    It's a fire for what?
    Time for faith we thought

    Lyrics printed on the vinyl sleeves. So they are right.

    General CommentI feel like this song is implying that the "act" that we all participate in has no meaning.
    "A staged race has no thunder" meaning that this race, this act of achieving success or money or good looks or other insignificant matter has no real meaning or passion. (thunder)
    "It's a fire for what?"- We're creating this huge flame of war and violence...but for what? Does it all go back to the race?

    Generally, we make life "about face" or the mask or "face" we display to the world.
