"Voice Of Dissent" as written by Zach Blair, Joseph Principe, Timothy Mcilrath and Brandon Barnes....
Here along we wander and we roam
We cut our teeth in city streets and gutters we call home
Await the day the clouds will part
Deliver words we know by heart

Raise your fucking voice
Or be a face in the crowd
Isn't that what it's all about?

So tempt me not with the life you have bought
Our keep is earned in the change that we sought
Explain away the tangled truth
Accuse away but without proof

Raise your fucking voice
Or be a face in the crowd
Isn't that what it's all about?

Boots on the ground, aim tried and true
Bells toll the sound; impending doom
In our respite our numbers grew
Now it's time to

Raise your fucking voice
Or be a face in the crowd
Isn't that what it's all about?
Is that what this is about?

    My InterpretationOn the right track, Sleeze. At first glance it looks like it's speaking out against conformity, but the last lyric (which needs to be corrected, by the way), tell us otherwise: "It's not what this is about!" When he says, "Raise your fucking voice!" he's telling us to speak out, get angry, do something. It's not about conformity (he asks us if it is: "Isn't that what it's all about?"), it's about speaking out for what's right and speaking out against what's wrong.

    In short, raise your voice, but don't do it because you want to stand out. Raise your voice to make a statement, stomp your feet, and tell those bastard politicians how it's gonna go down.

    My InterpretationThis song is about standing out and not conforming to society and the governments expectations. It's tell you to stand up, raise your voice and make a difference. Tim once said in an interview that the world should be changed by people giving a shit and this song is definitely about that. Giving a shit and changing the world

    General Commenti think this is about standing out and being yourself instead of conforming
