"A.M. War" as written by Andrew Francis Goddard, Mark Daniel Hosking, Ian Lewis Kenny, Stephen Charles Judd and Jonathan Peter Stockman....
If we live to see another year
Well it didn't make much room for it
So they say
No, it wouldn't change a single thing
We live every other day like every other day
And I said

Can I be honest?
Will I be here to stay?
But we can't despair with our heads in your hands
We might as well walk away

Another
Put another blot of color on the scenery
'Cause you're no visionary
Just a blot on the scenery
You're my design

All things aside
We're almost out of time
One more day to see through
Now we've learned that things are not okay
We will all say goodbye
We're almost out of time
In this hopeless cold divide
Something new this time
And I swear it's under my skin

I've gotta get out of the way
I've gotta get out of the way
I've gotta get out of the way
I've gotta get out of the way
I've gotta get out of the way
(Don't want you to stay)

Another
Put another blot of color on the scenery
You're no visionary
Just a blot on the scenery
You're my design

And if it matters to you
Don't waste time
Just be ready
'Cause we're leaving you with nothing
If it matters to you
Make your peace or drown in decay

We've gotta get out of the way
We've gotta get out of the way
We've gotta get out of the way

    My InterpretationI believe the song is about how the masses become so complacent with the problems of the world-Hence they 'get out of the way'.

    The first section is referring to the complacency and the monotonous routines while ignoring the problems posed by our actions.

    The second section is about the apathetic view of the problem as passing it on for those in power-'But we can't despair with our heads in your hands'

    The third-recognition of the danger as caused by one's own actions-'You're my design'-We allow these destructive leaders to come to power, we elect them.

    4-We are about out of time to change our circumstances. If we keep going down this path, there will be irreparable repercussions. The circumstances are looking futile.

    7-If it matters to us, we will take action to 'make peace' with our circumstances or we will continue to allow society to decay. There will be a price to pay to preserve this world or protect it.
