"A Beautiful Indifference" as written by and Tim Mcilrath....
There's a struggle coming, but to conquer,
First they must divide.
The machines keep humming night and day.
How are we so unaware,
Why are you not afraid?

Protests are drumming while you turn
Your nose and roll your eyes,
Knee-jerk reactions so ingrained.
Judging from an arm chair.

'Cause there is hate and there is love and there is loss,
But there is light and there is dark, then there is us.
And whether this world burns, is none of your concern,
Caught up in a ticker-tape parade.

I have learned to stand up and just to walk away,
Sometimes the cold hearts aren't worth the love or the hate.
Learn to let go, learn to walk away.
Up from the shadows I'm seduced by the light of the flame,
But this time I'm here to stay.

Gunpowder residue, bright lights and turpentine,
True colors shining through,
As we are stripped of our exteriors.

Now, cause there is hate
And there is love and there is loss,
But there is right and there is wrong, then there is us.
We're falling until

We learn to stand up and just to walk away,
Sometimes the cold hearts aren't worth the love or the hate.
Learn to let go, learn to walk away.
Up from the shadows I'm seduced by the light of the flame,
But this time I'm here to stay

Feet first into the quicksand,
Every day we are surrendering,
Never straying from the game plan.
I keep hoping you will take my hand and stand up.

The water's overflowing, the walls are breaking,
But I know where I'm going, that we can make it
And there's a light still glowing and I will chase it.
And I've been lost before and I have been led astray,

But this time I'm here to stay

    General CommentFrom my point of view this song is all about the passivity of most people regarding the world's continual degradation (may it be about wars, human treatments or about ecologic issues).

    It also points out the fact that most of those passive people aren't so because they don't want to cry out and stand for more human values but because they have been learned (and forced) not to (educational, media and political manipulation).

    BUT, the end of the song directly leads towards the conclusion it isn't always an absolute state of mind. Human beings have also done good things and if that kindness could be used at a greater scale, this may result in a better world.

    Tim is calling for that goodness to shine in and out of us all.
