Two silhouettes stand tall against a gray November sky Utopian suburban teenage wasteland blues. You turn to me and sigh, the boredom growin' in your eyes as a voice sings songs of splendor from the radio I hear that voice again submerging from the stereo Invisible electric life flows right through me, Then for a moment I forget about what's going on and the world fallin' around loses urgency. It's just another transmission from a place we all want to be. It takes control then its spits me back to reality.I hear the music then I close my eyes It's just another radio suicide on the airwaves. I turned it on-invisible electric life. Then the song comes on the radio The signal takes control-heartbeat starts to slow, you hear the words reverberating in your mind Twisted electric waves pulse from the stereo as a voice screams out loud Everything is not alright forget about the static pulsing in your ear Forget everything you see and hear it's just another radio suicide

    General CommentAgreed. the "We're Not Alright" are amazing words...

    The song has 2 possible meanings to me:

    It's about the sad state of radio now adays, how it helped inspired the band to make music, but now it just discourages them. "Radio Suicide" comes from the radio, being in such a bad state, killing itself.

    A morel ikely meaning is that it's about bored kids living in a boring suburb, and how the radio is the only boredom killer. Perhaps he's linking real life suicide from living in a boring town to the radio
