"Politically Correct" as written by and Mitchell Allan Scherr....
I don't mean to piss you off with things I might say
But when I try to shut my mouth they come out anyway
When I speak my mind, that's when we connect
But that's not politically correct

Our heads are so filled with thought, we can't use our imagination
Like a sky so filled with stars, you can't find a constellation
And everyone's so sensitive to every bad vibration
We're so impressing while we're regressing

There's nothing I believe in more than my own insignificance
So why does everybody think that my words can make a difference
I just don't have time to think up every social consequence
I'll just keep on talking you keep applauding

I don't mean to piss you off with things I might say
But when I try to shut my mouth they come out anyway
If you spoke your mind you might feel more connected
Until you get politically corrected

You lean a little to the left or the right but
You can only see what's on your side.
Look a little like a deer in the headlights
A little blind a little hypnotized.
So you conform with the best of intention
Change comes from inside.
After all that's what this country was founded on
Do nothing different just fall in line.

What happened to make us so afraid
You couldn't make a Mel Brooks movie today
I saw Blazing Saddles yesterday

    General Commentthere's 2 ppl w/ a relationship & something it's going wrong. this guy thinks there's a problem w/ her being so mainstream & doing everything for the rest of the world. he's more of an individual & she's overrated so he's trying to tell her hey ~ don't worry about it & say what you think & not what the rest of the world wants you to say

    General CommentI don't think this song is about a relationship. The way he adresses everythign is too general. I think he's singing about just people in general. He saying that we would do anything to be just ordinary and difference is something you don't come across often.

    General Commentthe song is just a general description of how pc everything is. it just seems like you can't say anything without offending someone these days because our country has become so diverse. they don't think they should catch crap for what they say because they don't mean to offend anyone, they're just speaking their mind, no one can think freely because of the limitations put on us

    General CommentI personally think the meaning of the song is simple.
    You can't state your opinion anymore without someone finding something wrong with it. And I don't mean they disagree with you, I mean they say "That's racist!" "That's sexist!" etc. Seriously, you can't say black without being accused of racism.
    It's so fucking stupid how we are so damn sensitive about the stupidist shit.
    He's basically saying, there are more important things going on in the world, why are you focusing so much on my opinion?
