"Sudden Movements" as written by Jon Gallant, Aaron Solowoniuk, Ian D'sa and Ben Kowalewicz....
Well I'm scared of my reflection
Is it mine or is it yours?
And I swear I hear the knockin'
But there's no one at the door.

Don't think I'm losing my perspective
Cause I know one thing for sure
They've been watching, they've been listening
Every whisper, every word

[Chorus]
Your sudden movements, sudden movements
Gonna give us all away
No sudden movements, sudden movements
Or they'll blow us all away

Dare I find my information
Who's the black sheep of the herd?
I am the guardian of angels
And they'll get what they deserve

So lock your children in the basement
Keep a rifle by the door
Don't be afraid of my intentions
Cause I'm more afraid of yours

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

Blow our soul away
Blow our soul away

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

    Song MeaningThis song, to me, could be written from the perspective of someone involved or affected by war and the paranoia it brings on.

    For instance: "And I swear I hear the knocking But there's no one at the door Don't think I'm losing my perspective 'Cause I know one thing for sure"
    This describes paranoia of hearing a 'knock on the door' and being taken away.

    "They've been watching, they've been listening Every whisper, every word", along with the chorus may be from the perspective of a population or group of people being spied on and scrutinised, and if they are percieved as doing something wrong, they may be killed "...they'll blow us all away."
    Having recently read '1984', this song reminds me of the 'Thought Police', 'Thought Crime' and 'Thought Criminals'.
    I could be very wrong, but this is my perspective, and anyway, this is an amazing song nonetheless.

    General CommentAs explained by Ian himself:

    It means he (paranoid man) has taken it upon himself to guard the angels (people he wants to protect ie...his family) and 'they'll' (anyone he thinks would inflict harm upon them) will get what they deserve (with his rifle).

    ...

    He was trying oh-so-hard to put it into words on the band's forums. I love how they randomly post.

    General Commentcorrect lyrics (more correct, anyway)

    Well, I'm scared of my reflection
    Is it mine or is it yours?
    And I swear I hear the knocking
    But there's no one at the door
    Don't think I'm losing my perspective
    'Cause I know one thing for sure
    They've been watching, they've been listening
    Every whisper, every word

    [CHORUS]
    Your sudden movements, sudden movements
    Gonna give us all away
    No sudden movements, sudden movements
    Or they'll blow us all away

    Dare I find my information?
    Who's the black sheep of the herd?
    I am the guardian of angels
    And they'll get what they deserve
    So lock your children in the basement
    Keep a rifle by the door
    Don't be afraid of my intentions
    'Cause I'm more afraid of yours

    [CHORUS]
