"Edge Of A Revolution" as written by Chad Kroeger, Mike Kroeger and Ryan Peake....
Head high, protest line
"Freedom" scribbled on your sign
Headline, New York Times
Standing on the edge of a revolution

Hey, hey, just obey
Your secret's safe with the NSA
In God we trust or the CIA?
Standing on the edge of a revolution

Yeah, we're standing on the edge of a revolution
Revolution, revolution, revolution

No, we won't give up, we won't go away
'Cause we're not about to live in this mass delusion
No, we don't wanna hear another word you say
'Cause we know they're all depending on mass confusion
No, we can't turn back, we can't turn away
'Cause it's time we all relied on the last solution
No, we won't lay down and accept this fate
'Cause we're standing on the edge of a revolution

Wall Street, common thief
When they get caught they all go free
A brand new yacht and a finders fee
Standing on the edge of a revolution

Same shit, different day
Can't keep fed if I can't get paid
We'll all be dead if the shit don't change
Standing on the edge of a revolution

Yeah, we're standing on the edge of a revolution
Revolution, revolution, revolution

No, we won't give up, we won't go away
'Cause we're not about to live in this mass delusion
No, we don't wanna hear another word you say
'Cause we know they're all depending on mass confusion
No, we can't turn back, we can't turn away
'Cause it's time we all relied on the last solution
No, we won't lay down and accept this fate
'Cause we're standing on the edge of a revolution

We'll all be dead if this shit don't change
Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey

What do we want? We want the change
And how're we gonna get there? Revolution
What do we want? We want the change
Standing on the edge of a revolution

What do we want? We want change
And how're we gonna get there? Revolution
What do we want? We want the change
Standing on the edge of a revolution

No, we won't give up, we won't go away
'Cause we're not about to live in this mass delusion
No, we don't wanna hear another word you say
'Cause we know they're all depending on mass confusion
No, we can't turn back, we can't turn away
'Cause it's time we all relied on the last solution
No, we won't lay down and accept this fate
'Cause we're standing on the edge of a revolution

What do we want? We want change
And how're we gonna get there? Revolution
What do we want? We want the change
Standing on the edge of a revolution

What do we want? We want change
And how're we gonna get there? Revolution
What do we want? We want the change
Standing on the edge of a revolution

    My InterpretationTo me it sounds like a big middle finger to the people who despise Nickelback. They're saying whether you love us or hate it we're here to stay. Especially in the first few lines of the chorus. Good song and I'm glad they're here to stay! \m/

    General CommentI agree with a prior comment about this being a big FU to those that have slated Nickelback in a rather derogatory fashion in the past.

    However, I also think this song's message is one hell of a political statement.

    My InterpretationIt has to do with all the news media confusing people into thinking what's right and wrong. It's saying that it's not fair for the thieves of Wall Street, the NSA, etc. get away with crimes that they commit and that we the people won't put up with their crap. Revolution is the only way to get them to listen to us. However, they forgot about Charles Ponzi, the inventor of the Ponzi scheme and Bernie Madoff. They got punished for their crimes.
