"Wapakalypse" as written by and Daniel Williams Jeremy Depoyster....
Dear tomorrow,
Find some sensibility,
Respond to emotion.

Dear Politician,
Define sagacity,
One after another, nobody stands behind the ones they have chosen.
One after another, nobody stands behind the ones they've selected.
Nobody stands behind the nation they've selected.

All chances of survival are beginning to diminish.
Comedy is no excuse for our own blasphemies.
Mass media
Mass pessimism
Mass Denial.

My television tells me to panic, but I don't think I'll listen.
The apathetic force us to persevere,
The apathetic, with their backwards priorities.
If only the strongest of stone was not necessary.

One after another, nobody stands behind the ones they have chosen.
One after another, nobody stands behind the ones they've selected.
Nobody stands behind the nation they've selected.

Liberation includes failure,
Your rebellion is resultless,
So be angry at yourself,
If only we did not deserve this.

    General Comment"Dear tomorrow,
    Find some sensibility
    Respond to emotion
    Dear politician,
    Define sagacity"

    Those first lyrics are very powerful, but they are made to seem unassuming. What they are saying is that people are invested so much in the future, but what they don't understand is that there's nothing certain of 'tomorrow.' All this investment is like investing belief in a politician - a politician could never define sagacity, as it has none - politicians are just rich, privileged men who work the system and lie through their teeth - and tomorrow can never find sensibility or respond to emotion, as it has no capacity to feel. We will not live to see tomorrow if we live solely on hope. The people of this world must act now, must take action, if tomorrow is a day they would like to see with clarity.

    General Commentid say u guys pointing out that its about one politician or another is wrong. rather they're talking about all politicians in general who are hypocrites and whos actions end up making the country worse and doing things contrary to their beliefs

    General CommentI think what they are saying is neither anti-Bush nor anti-Obama. It seems to me that it's showing a trend - which is how the people are never happy w/ the results of their actions. We all blame the president but what about the government in general? I dislike both presidents but you can't push ALL the blame on either of them when they have tons of people under them making decisions as well. Back to the point of the song:

    "Dear tomorrow,
    Find some sensibility
    Respond to emotion" -here he's asking the future to change and realize what we're doing wrong right now.

    "Dear politician,
    Define sagacity" -Alot of the politicians act like they have the answer and every one else is an idiot. he seems to be asking the politicians to stop acting like they've got all the wisdom in the world [maybe not the best answer here..]

    "One after another, nobody stands behind the ones they have chosen" -The people are unhappy w/ those they have elected, referring to basically any President as all of them have had low points where people regret choosing them.

    "All changes of survival are beginning to diminish" - maybe saying this cycle will eventually diminish and fade into when people realize no man can save us? i'm not sure here..

    "Comedy is no excuse for our own blasphemies
    Mass Media/Mass Pessimism/Mass Denial
    My television tells me to panic, but I don't think I'll listen" -here i think he's saying that we make fun of our leaders to put off the despair of how far they're taking us down but at the same time we have to look towards how we can make it better and be wary of what the media tells us.

    "The apathetic force us to persevere
    The apathetic, with their backwards priorities
    If only the strongest of stone was not necessary" -everyone criticizes the gov but few actually do something to fix things. not sure what he means by the stone comment though

    "We could build a memory:
    Liberation includes failure
    Your rebellion is resultless
    So be angry at yourself
    If only we did not deserve this" -All of the Political hate is fueled into a black hole of angst and criticism that no one does anything about so in the end its our fault.

    Hope all this helped, again, i could be wrong but hopefully this is close.

    General Commentits not bashing any one particular leader guys. all this bout its against bush or obama is absolutely wrong because this is a christian band and they wouldn't write a song like that in the first place.

    to me, the song is talking about just things that are wrong with America, well kinda anyways. We elect our leaders but then don't follow them after they've been elected. I think the key reason that we even have a president is because people want someone to blame for all the wrongs that are happening to this country. You can blame whoever you want but when it comes down to it, our leaders in office do the best they can the only way they can, and people are never going to be happy with it. (this is why i hate politics with a passion)

    also, it says my television tells me to panic but i don't think ill listen. I think this is very true. the news, the media, all of it tries to get you to fear everything. it makes the world seem a whole lot more dangerous and cruel than it actually is. instead of telling about a lot of the good events, they focus the majority on the bad doings in America and make it seem like everyone and everything is going evil. The media works to turn us against our leaders (usually unless they're democratic). pretty much this is just a backwards nation and thats kinda what i get from it.

    General CommentI'm not gonna explain the entire song but the angry at yourself part they mean that were all blessed to be born into a strong wealthy country with so much freedom. And he's saying that we pick our own leaders, were not dictated, and after we get what we want it is never enough for us and we abandon the people we choose.That we choose who we pick and you can't blame anyone. But ourselves for being so blind and picking ignorant leaders. If your not happy then try going to other countries who don't have enough water for the day. It's talking about how selfish we are as Americans that we will bitch and complain about everything and anything we can and no one will take the blame for it all. We all wanna dump it on someone else to cover our own backs. I'm not saying bush was good or anything about politics, just talking about the song here. I'm seeing the same thing happening with Obama.

    Sorry if this was kinda confiusing I'm trying to do it from an iPhone here so my bad if it dosemt make any sense.

    Song Meaningthis song is about how no one will support any of our leaders, how divided we all are from eachother. in my opinion its talking about how the united states is a failure because no one, not even its own citizens, support it.

    General CommentI like this song, but I don't really know what it means? It's about politics, and judging my the lyrics, I'm guessing war, right?

    General Commentyeah i think you're totally correct. it sounds like its maybe about bush. in the beginning he had a lot of support, but after we had seen the outcome of his judgment [or lack thereof] people started to rip on him and make jokes about his leadership skills. they mention the word 'sagacity' which is wisdom; i think they're saying that although the president may not have made wise decisions, we ultimately made the decision to put him in office, and we need to stand behind him despite his stupidity. i really like the line 'so be angry at yourself, if only we did not deserve this.'

    we reap what we sow.

    General Comment"We could build a memory:
    Liberation includes failure"

    Those lines sound really powerful but I don't exactly understand what they're trying to say? Is he saying to just look at the past--to succeed, you must fail first? I'm probably wrong but yeah.

    Song MeaningI'm pretty sure this is about politics...
    I like the Bush idea that Chelsrouk put out there. I think it's also sort of about how people only voted for him because of Faith or whatever, that there is a difference between religion and government because we pick these things based on ourselves and not on a global scale, only fucking us over ever more.
