"Naysayer" as written by and Daniel Joseph Searle Alex Anthony Dean....
Say what you like, I know what I am
Sometimes a flood starts with a leak in the dam
You said we'll never make a difference
Maybe this battle is to fight indifference

Naysayer
Naysayer, hammer the nail
We're all on our own, we can't decide what's true
Betrayer, hammer the nail
Such narrow lines separate me and you

So sick of the sound of people giving up
You can't stop me giving a fuck
Fuck it, I'm a dreamer and I'm dreaming on
Fuck it, I'm a dreamer and I'm dreaming on

With every concession another piece of us dies
Will we fight for nothing, if not our lives?
Apathy is our new messiah
Only he could let things get so dire
All the messengers found knives in their backs
Apathy is our new messiah
The word made flesh, you can't fight fire with fire
All the messengers found knives in their backs

I know it haunts you, it haunts me too
We're all on our own, we can't decide what's true
Why are we fighting, when I'm just like you?

Naysayer
Naysayer, hammer the nail

We're all on our own, we can't decide what's true
Betrayer, hammer the nail
Such narrow lines separate me and you

So sick of the sound of people giving up
You can't stop me giving a fuck
Fuck it, I'm a dreamer and I'm dreaming on
Fuck it, I'm a dreamer and I'm dreaming on

Apathy is our new messiah
The word made flesh, you can't fight fire with fire

    My InterpretationIn my opinion, this song references public ignorance of any form - any event when the public has refused to open their eyes rather than information being hid from them. An example would be how nothing is really being done to stop global warming. While economic fuels are being implemented, it is not as drastic as it should be and oil is still being mined - at this moment, there is probably still a dangerous amount of greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere. More to the point, its about the pessimism, the attitude that a group of dedicated people can't change the world. If someone pledges to make a difference in this day and age, they are met with scoffs and "you'll never do it". But who says? Such pessimism and apathy is exactly why our world is fucked up, because no-one has the balls to step up to the plate and do anything so we all just stoically accept whatever fate we have and fail to make any sort of change.
