Admist the most barren scene how are we lost?
You've got to be fucking kidding me. Shut up.
Just give me the wheel and I'll drive.
You are not yet fit to speak on my behalf.
We deserve to be moved by more than force alone.
Instead I've been witness to loss upon loss upon loss.
I'm assailed by the thoughtless who sing to their own.
Caught in the middle, I'm pinned between the egos and the drones.
Skill has been called to arms. Goddam kids have grown up to let down.
All around us are dissonant sounds.
We're misplaced and we'll never be found.
All these kids have grown up to let down.
I'll be spinning in my grave for the rest of my life.
Have I taught you children nothing all this time?
This labyrinth that we're puzzled by is nothing but a straight line.
But sometimes those are harder to navigate.
We deserve to be moved by more than force alone.
Instead I've been witness to loss upon loss upon loss.
I'm assailed by the thoughtless who sing to their own.
Caught in the middle, I'm pinned between the egos and the drones.
Pride has been called to arms. Goddam kids have grown up to let down.
All around us are dissonant sounds.
We're misplaced and we'll never be found.
All these kids have grown up to let down.
If this is the state of my art, then I secede.
We're walking Spanish down a plank that stretches miles.
You are not yet fit to speak on my behalf.
What a shame we're forced to suffer this senselessness and inanity.

    General CommentI've heard that ETID likes to make fun of Horse the Band and their so-called "innovative style", so this song very well could be bashing how much they hate their music and band in general. It also could refer to how they dislike the current hardcore/punk metal scene and style as a whole.

    General CommentTo me this song is about how Every Time I Die isn't as famous as they should be.

    "Admist the most barren scene how are we lost?" That kind of says it all really.

    They also can't comprehend how some bands are more popular than them.

    My InterpretationHoly Shit. Go Keith. Sounds like he's pissed that these supposed "musicians", that zero to no effort into the music they create(e.g. brokenCYDE), are also maybe citing ETID as an influence(I'll be spinning in my grave for the rest of my life. Have I taught you children nothing all this time?)? My favorite song off the new album.
