"My Wall" as written by Dennis Steven Jagard, Steven Thomas Carnan and Peter Douglas Newbury....
A middle-class mom crouches on the hill
Eyes behind binoculars she sits so still
Spots a boy going under the freeway
Whispers in her radio going for the kill
Open your eyes! You're fighting kids
Who only want to make their mark
Everything else you took away
You left them in the dark
Open your eyes!
Your war is not about beauty
It's about rights and choice
Speech isn't free
It is only for those who can afford
To raise their voice
Say it is pollution
They say it is a sin
Mobilize their force to
Stop the demon within
They say it is not a battle
It is a full scale war
Recruiting volunteers
Like never before
Say it is so ugly
They say it is an eyesore
But remember
They're the ones who build department stores
Put ads on the windows
Asphalt where the grass used to grow

    General CommentI think this song is about grafitt, and how it's portrayed by society.To most people it's seen as dirty and ugly and vandalism, but to some people it's a form of art and self-expression. This song is basically saying that kids are silenced enough as it is anyway, so they deserve more ways of being able to express themselves. Also it's saying about how the adults against grafitti are hypocrites due to the fact they're causing pollution and urbanising everywhere, which is a lot worse than a few marks on a wall.
