"Elite" as written by Chino Camilo Moreno, Chi Cheng, Abe Cunningham and Stephen Carpenter....
When you're ripe you'll
Bleed out of control
You'll bleed out of control
You like attention
It's proof to you you're alive
Stop parading your angles
Confused?
You'll know when you're ripe
When you're ripe you'll
Bleed out of control
You'll bleed out of control
You're pregnant with all this
Space thick with honey
But I lost my taste
You're into depression cause
It matches your eyes
Stop this faux to be famous
Confused?
You'll know when you're ripe

    General CommentI fucking dedicate this song to everyone who are superficial and act like they're life is hell. I'm interpreting this song on how I feel like it means and how I relate to it.

    Chino is just talking shit about people who change who they are to get attention and to be a part of the crowd. People need attention in order to feel they exit ( You like attention it’s proof To you you’re alive). TO me, when chino says "Stop parading your angles" it's like saying, "no one gives a fuck what your perspective on things are." People say "oh my life sucks." and they have no issues whatsoever. these people are conFUSED when you tell them something, but "they'll know when they're ripe" because once they go out into the real world and have REAL issues, "they'll bleed out of control."

    They're lives are FINE. They have enough space. No one tries to do anything to them, but they still act like the victims. they're life is sweet as honey, no bitter shit going on You’re pregnant with all this Space thick with honey."
    Not sure what he means vy "but i lost my taste" but anyway..

    These people ACT depressed because that's how they WANT to be seen. (You’re into depression cause It matches your eyes.) They want people to feel sorry for them, and it's all a fucking lie. ( Stop the faux to be famous.)

    But they will have theirs one day because they don't appreciatte what they have and they "will bleed out of control."

    General Comment"this is laughing at everybody trying to become what they already are. if you want to be one of the elite, you are. im sort of the asshole in the song, pretty much talking shit about everybody else. you're supposed to feel stupid after listening to it and wonder what it is to be elite." - Chino

    General CommentIt was Stanley Milgram's study (1974). We studied it in psychology for our Social Influence unit. Out of 40 men, 64% went up to the full voltage. But there are a lot of ethical concerns with this study; the participants weren't fully consented (they didn't know what was going to happen cos they were told it was going to be a memory test) The only reason why I know all this is because I have a very important exam in psychology on 20th May (6 days b 4 Ozzfest!!)

    General CommentOh, and by the way, it was a study on obedience not conformity, there are differences eg obedience occurs in a heirarchy, obediant behaviour differs from the 'boss' and obedience is used as an excuse for the behaviour whereare conformity occurs in a group of similar level people eg friends and conformity is the same behaviour as the 'boss'

    General CommentEveryone pretty much covered what I had to say. Someone trying to be one of the big, popular people, and since they weren't really acting like themselves, it just hurt them. And if they just stayed the way they were originally everything would have been better. I just think it's cool the way Chino sings when he sings "When you're ripe, you'll bleed out of control." It's like he could be screaming or he could be whispering. Maybe screaming in the person's face or whispering behind their back? Just a thought...

    General Commenti think this is about super models. "stop parading your angles" and how....apparently...they're stupid. so the only thing they know is when they'll be on the blob. "confused, you'll know when you're ripe"

    General Commentwhen i hear this song i think of preppie girls at high schools. basically thinking everyone is all about them and obsessed with how they look, they are the social 'elite' of the school. but chino is prophecising the time that will sooner or later come...when they become ripe (older/past school or maybe puberty) they will become just like everyone else, or proberly less. anyways, that's what i think...

    General CommentI think it's about stuck-up rich girls who think they're really popular and how everybody should love them, but nobody really does. It's my song for them.
