"Six Ways 'Till Sunday" as written by and Principe/mcilrath/barnes/wleklinski....
The years unfold in one moment
The voices that we heard so loud
Are now suddenly silenced
Inside this crowd

And you're surrounded by the lives
Of those who found something to hold
So bringing everybody down
Is all you know

You've been hiding so long
You can't find yourself
In this sheltered life you live
When everything you want is at your fingertips
You'll never know what need is

You're claiming to be something different
So wanting to believe
That you're better than the rest
To make up for your self-esteem
You talk to hear your own voice and
You've left me no choice but to choose
I miss the person that you were
But I don't miss you

You're the new revolution
The angst-filled adolescent
You fit the stereotype well

    General CommentI think that song is about all the kids out there, that claim to be different by being the same as everyone else. Wearing a revolution shirt doesn't mean that you are a revolutionary if all you do is wear a t-shirt. So many people claim to be part of something different but really being different has become mainstream. You see so many people these days talking and talking and talking, and all they accomplish is to talk. Congradulations you angst filled adolesent. You hate the world and guess what no one cares. Raise your voice just a little louder so more than your mirror can hear you. Like i said this song i believe is more of a jab at every kid out there that claims to be a "rebel", when all they do is bitch. I know several people myself cried against the autrocities that they felt were unfair, but they didn't do anything about it. I think this song is just trying to tell all of those kids that there is more to be revolutionary than wearing a t-shirt and putting everyone else down.

    Pick up your can of spray paint, get a sign and a stick, and do something quit talking about it just do something if you think that life is unfair.

    General CommentI really like this song.... Rise Against shows here what punk is now about. About emotions, it's a great critic that all those jerks who go out and claim to have a social conscience, to join a so-called revolution, etc when they don't even know themselves. Like rbfboy212 said, it's about losing someone that stupid stream of angry people.

    General CommentIt`s hard not to really feel the end part. And throughout the song it has some of the best self-explanatory lyrics in punk music. I never tire of this song - everything about it rules.

    I miss the person that you were but I don`t miss you

    That line strikes such a chord w/ me.

    Nuff respect. The Unraveling is an album packed w/ special moments.

    General CommentI;m agreeing wiht TheAlmightyMags here where its very hard not to feel the end, everyone knows that they have tried to fit in by acting different but everyone knows that they dont need to.

    The part saying:

    when everything you want is at your fingertips
    you'll never know what need is

    That part got me good cuz i know alot of ppl that have everything handed to them and they have no idea what they need and what they just want.

    General Commentto me this song is about the high school years, and the people that put everyone down in school, stuff like that. the rich kids who don't have any idea what need is.

    General Commentthe angst filled adolescent:

    The song would suggest it's about a depressed/angst filled teeanger, who has finally dsicovered that there are other people like him, and now he just associates himself with them, he thinks that no one else cares and he is above them now, he claims to be one of those people, when in reality he doesn't even know himself. He fits the stereotype of an angst filled teenager well. This song is very personal, I can relate to it, not because I know someone like this, but that someone is me. Angst filled teenager, angry at the world. I am that stereotypical teenager that he's singing about. I found other people like me, I don't hang with my old friends anymore because they never really cared... and now I am them... but do I really know myself?
    So to me, that's what the song is about. And that's what I believe it's about.
