Ahistorical
You think this shit just dropped right out of the sky
My analysis:
It's time to harvest the crust from your eyes
To surge and refine
To rage and define ourselves
Against your line
So sorry friend, you must resign

You want to figure it out
We'll throw down (We'll throw down)
We'll throw down
You want to figure it out
Well, throw down your bulldog front

Bold bold mouth talking not so bold
Now that you've eaten your own
Lips flecked, mouth specked
You strip the skin right off of the bone
But I would never say
You act without precision or care, but
It's all attention to armor
To the armor you wear so well

You want to figure it out
We'll throw down
We'll throw down
You want to figure it out
Well, throw down your bulldog front

You want to figure it out
You want to figure it out

Let's knock and check to see if there's somebody home
Let's knock and check to see if there's somebody home
Let's knock and check to see if there's somebody home
Let's knock and check to see if there's somebody home

Let's knock and check to see if there's somebody home
Let's knock and check to see if there's somebody home
Let's knock and check to see if there's somebody home
Let's knock and check to see if there's somebody home

You want to figure it out
We'll throw down
We'll throw down
You want to figure it out
Well, throw down your bulldog front

You want to figure it out
You want to figure it out

    General Commentthis song seems to be about, in essence, people who put up a macho front. more specifically, the hardcore scene. those involved put up tough guy fronts and refused to see outside the confines of the scene basically.

    My OpinionThis song addresses racists that hide behind their "Bulldog Front"; they dismiss all racism past slavery, "a historical, you think this shit just dropped right out of the sky?" and further refer to their ignorance, "let's knock to check to see if there's somebody home." MacKaye prompts a solution: "it's time to harvest the crust from your eyes." There's also identification of their shallow rebuttals- that they "act with precision [and] care/ But it's all attention to [their] armor."

    General CommentIt "seems" to me he might be talking to atheists and or agnostics that rely only on evolution to explain existence.rather than READ SCRIPTURE WITH LOVE IN YOUR HEART.Seen them in dallas in'09 BTW.LOVED IT!
