"Mission" as written by and Andre Romell/bailey Young....
Let it be known, to all your misbelievin'
What you've been seein'
That we will not stand
Will not be mistaken
We'll go there leave this weakness
Don't take take this from me
We'll go there leave this weakness
'Cause I have been waiting

Lo we are not so we're on a mission
Lo we are not so we're on a mission

Damn this, damn that
There'll be no talk of turnin'-back
Damn this, damn that
There'll be no talk
That we might fly sometimes
We will find our own way
That we might fly sometimes
We will find our own

We are not so
We are not given
We are not sold on what we have seen

We're gone we're gone
The list is long we are many strong
The ceilings are coming down

    General CommentIn this song they're saying that they're "on a mission" to do and be what they want and it doesn't matter what other people think. Great song =)

    General Commenti agree with them on a mission that needs to be completed. i do like what they say about "damn people talkin" and then say what they're gonna do. that's a tight attitude and yet another reason why i love dispatch!

    General Commentdispatch kicks ass, and this is one of my favorite songs by them. also, even though they originated east coast, they need to make the transfer and come do stuff on west coast.

    General Commenti think this song's about not stopping or tiring out when you have a purpose or some sort of "mission" as in this particular instense. yeah man, this song has a great attitude that gets you in that break stuff mood. and the guitar solo is a cool addittion too. not to mention the beat when he says, "we on a mission to be so well, oh well.........." that's awesome

    General CommentDispatch basically saying they won't sell out, they're going to be stron artists, and break the mold. Cool song, Dispatch's my fave.

    General CommentDefinitely was 'sold' not 'so'..great song except who knows what their mission really is.. we just know they arent gonna stray from it or sell out. The only indication of what it is is when they say "on a mission to be so well"..it's possible they are just referring to their music and that they will not become like anybody else..or possibly their mission is somethin deeper..we will never know.

    General Commentthis song is so awesome. i also think it was "we are not sold". i think that its about not being bought off or conforming the what everyone else wants you to do, but to go and do what ever you believe in or whatever your "mission". such a good song.

    General CommentI think their playing off the Blues Brothers...

    Most of their music has a rather godly message to it, maybe. And the Blues Brothers were "on a mission from GOD".

    I could be right, I could be wrong but at least I am not in the middle.
