"Ecstasy" as written by Michael Glabicki, Jim Donovan, Jenn Wertz, Liz Berlin, Jim Dispirito, John Buynak and Patrick Norman....
Take away your paper & pen
Stacks of money and your foolish grin
And go

Get me off the backwards ride
Take away your greedy way and go
See the woman standing at the door
World gone by
Again and again
Pushed on
Pushed on
World gone by

Take away your companies
Take away your societies and go
Take away your fictitious books of fact
See the woman standing in the door
World gone by
Again and again
See the blisters growing on your feet
Pushed on
Pushed on
World gone by

I wouldn't want to be
Living in a world of ecstasy with you

Wasted arms; wasted legs
Wrapped round this machine
Military machine

I wouldn't want to be
Living in a world of ecstasy with you

Taken' away your companies
Takin' away your societies and go.
Get me off this backwards ride,
Takin' away your fictitious books of fact.
Yeah, do mum-ba-si-be-ah

    General Commentto me, this song is about the underlying irony in fighting for peace. i love the verse
    "Wasted arms; wasted legs
    Wrapped round this machine
    Military machine..."
    so many lives wasted, so many soldiers killed and maimed as a result of war. today's War Machine is fueled by the bone and gristle of yesterday's soldiers.
    when will we learn?

    General Commentto me this song is pretty much saying F you to greedy mainstream society, war, and the governments bullshit.

    Song Meaningfor me, when I listen to this song I picture it is about how European settlers came to America with their ideas of this "New World" trying to force their way and ideologies on the Native Americans.

    The meeting with the Europeans became a disaster for the native Americans. Throug fraud, violence and war they were down supressed and denied.
