Well there is nothing else that we can lose
I put my heart upon my sleeve tonight
I know that everything will change soon
I can see it in your eyes
You won't be here for very long
If no one hears you, will you still want to sing?
If the harmonies disappear, they can't take our place

I believe that she is different than you and I
She can see things that we can't see
She is alone in this modern life
My voice is forever changed but the notes are still the same.
How long till you want to see?
I think we want it out of reach

And if it's something that I'll never come back well I told you not to look at me
Because it's a man made thought with a God-like hook and we know we'll never have to go down
So praises to the war machine and the distances growing thin and the hopelessness of a tiny Earth and a make shift hit

Cuz' I watched as she walked away
I knew the moment that she turned her back
She could never be the same again and she is never coming back

In the land of a thousand fathers she was born on the 4th of July
Well that don't mean she was made in America, she was gone in the blink of an eye
She belongs but she acts like a stranger
She collapsed but she ain't free
I am my only devil, cuz' they'll believe what they want to believe

    Song MeaningI've been trying to figure out what is being said in this song. I like it.

    Is it about wisdom? Freedom? Justice?

    I know they use 'she' a lot in their lyrics, but I'm looking at it here and wondering if it's not a Proverbs reference to wisdom.

    On the other hand they use 'the forth of july' and 'made in America.' This makes me think of Freedom or Justice.

    The beginning of the song sounds like he's talking about the band performing, but I'm not sure how that fits into the rest of my thoughts.

    Other thoughts appreciated!
