Yes i know this is politically correct
But it comes to you
Spiritually direct
An attempt to thoughtfully affect your way of thinking
That is if you believe in race
And that you were born in the right time and place
This is a thought
About face your way of thinking
Your way of
Your way of
Your way of
Your way of

Never thought it could be said
For all the people lying dead
For them to die was a distraction
And what they found a bit too late
Got covered up with all that hate
And now
And now it's nothing
But reaction

If you have to carry a gun to keep your fragile seat
At number one
This is a bullet
You can't outrun
Your way of thinking

So wait and see
It's coming round
Conscripted through
The lost and found
And still
We find so tightly around your way of thinking
Your way of
Your way of
Your way of
Your way of

Never thought it could be said
For all the people lying dead
For them to die was a distraction
And what they found a bit too late
Got covered up with all that hate
And now
And now it's nothing
But reaction
Action, reaction
Action
Action, reaction
Action
Action, action, action, action, action, action

    General CommentI see this song as being about tyrants, police, oppressors etc who use violence and intimidation to maintain power ("...your fragile seat at number one"). This is their attempt to convince those in power ("...to thoughtfully affect/your way of thinking...", that their mentality is not only wrong, it doesn't work ("this is a bullet...you can't outrun"). But the oppressors don't listen, so they predict endless cycles of violence and resistance until someone can be convinced of a more enlightened path.

    General Commentmy favorite song that Ive heard them do live (sadly, only on a bootleg)

    I think its about how people only react to things if it directly affects them, or something along the lines of that

    My InterpretationI think And The Same could be to do with the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms, hence the line; "If you have to carry a gun to keep your fragile seat at number one." Either way, it's still a cracking tune
