"Hear It" as written by and Greg Graffin....
Like a morning crow and his unwelcome song
Or a worn-out broken record that keeps skipping along
Mountains of instructions you keep piling on me

Resound like a cacophonous symphony
But I don't want to hear it anymore
Priests and politicians pretend they're your friend
And police speak to you like you're a child again

Blanket statements cover you like a rug
And that tell me maybe I'm acting a little too smug
But I don't want to hear it anymore
Every day we hear the secrets of life
Reduced to cheap jokes, poetry, and friendly advice

They'd rather see us all pusillanimous
Absorbent in their chorus of correctness
But I don't want to hear it anymore

    General CommentI'm thinkin it's more for those troubled souls who, when they hear about something disheartening, it makes them sad or angry or upset or something. And one can only take so much of hearing those things before they crack. Somethin I know I can relate to. How sometimes you hear something and it just instantly puts you down or changes your attitude, and you really don't want to hear it anymore. But this song, well I want to hear it haha
