"Answers" as written by John William Feldmann and Charlie Paulson....
I searched for a cause
I climbed the highest mountain
I walked to the top
I stopped and then looked down

But when I stop the search
The answers always come
And when I help someone
I always help myself by helping

(Chorus)

You tell me where your skeleton's hiding
Tell me all and I'll tell you
You think you have a real good fucking answer
A fucking answer I'll give you

I look toward the girls
And there I found no truth
I looked outside myself
It seemed I lost the good

But when I turn my eyes
Out from my own head
That's when I realize
That I see what I'm really selling

    General CommentLyrics are pretty vague, but MY GOD does it rock. When I got superpissed, I played the song way too loud and scream along, doing push-ups. After a few hours, I felt better. Mind, I was really pissed off.

    General CommentUntil they sold out? lol What, you mean to the vegan crowd? They lost their ska sound, but that's probably just because Simon left.
