"Are We Ready? (Wreck)" as written by and Matthew Samuel Halliday Kevin Stephen Baird....
Beyond a sacred cow
Stand up, take a bow
You’re wonderful
You should be comfortable, don’t think at all
Just don’t think at all, think at all
Now, now you’re digging around
What will you write about?
How did you find that out?
You get paid, don’t need any respect
Senses fading, she’s no lady

Oh, we’ve made a mistake
We’ve lost our minds
We’ve lost our memory
Oh, what’s it gonna take?
There’s always something else
Waiting on the shelf

You could be president
You never paid the rent but I don’t mind
You got no reason to [?]
It can’t be good enough
(Good enough)

Now, now you’re throwing the stone
You never simplify
Somebody stretch your eye
What will you say
With that mind of your own
Are we ready?
Hold it steady

Oh, we’ve made a mistake
We’ve lost our minds
We’ve lost our memory
Oh, what’s it gonna take?
There’s always something else
So occupy yourself

I saw the world today
It comes in green and gray
Refrigerator humming
Chewing gum and instant karma
The wars are whoring
All the stores are bored with all your money
We follow what’s to come
That’s what they sold to me

Now, now you’re throwing the stone
You never simplify
Somebody stretch your eye
What will you say
With that mind of your own
Are we ready?
Hold it steady

Now, now you’re throwing the stone (oh, we’ve made a mistake)
We’ve lost our minds (you never simplify)
We’ve lost our memory (somebody stretch your eye)
What will you say
With that mind of your own (oh, what’s it gonna take?)
There’s always something else
Are we ready?
Waiting on the shelf
Hold it steady

    My InterpretationThis is a rather satirical tune (which is backed up by the video) about how things that you really don't want or need are being crammed down your throat by advertisers. As the video progresses, the band becomes noticeably uglier as they believe the hype. However, once they stop believing the hype, the mask falls off.
