"Top" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
This is not helping me at all
What you are doing here
In the name of god and love
It's the distribution of fear

Pyramids healing wires analysts with fame
I haven't got your degree
And I forgot your name
Pick me up and put me on the ground

Set me up and spin me all around
No you are not the one I wish to see
This is not helping me at all
Where did we get this plan?

That you could give to me
What I might already have
Pyramids, healing wires, a musician's fame
I volunteered you my eyes

In place of facing me
Oh Hitler, in a robe of truth
My emptiness has built your altar
And I've worshiped myself in you forever
Until now!

    General CommentSongs about being a 17 year old guy who is forming his opinion that he will keep in later life. It is a time of teenage anger and curosity, where you read books like the Tibetan Book of the Dead, Doors of Perception, UFO books and Mein Kampf. Song comes in just as the guy realises that these extremist or out-there views are wrong.

    General CommentMy favorite and underrated song from LIVE (the other is "Meltdown"). Short but subtle with music and lyrics. I agree with the narrator. This is a satire to governmental authorities and they are represented by Hitler.
