"Antidote" as written by Trevor Smith and Lukasz Gottwald....
To sleep with anger every day - to put your prayers in someone's mouth
I watch you struggle with your own antidote, then you spit it out
And I can't breathe while I watch you sell yourself into the world
You try to steal my life
Now. Kill the hatred with a new sound. Put a new voice in a dry mouth
Breaking the prison inside - we're running riot
Now. Kill the hatred with a new sound. Put a new voice in a dry mouth
Will we bide our time afraid? Will we wait or overthrow?
All these things in my life dem a stain to remove
Beauty in our makeup peace in a gun cut the picture of yourself
In resistance to prove at least one of these colors does bleed and run
It's the war inside of us all
Poverty is the biggest strongest jail that the government ever built
So we go paralyzed by the lie of socialized violence
And while American culture seeds stagnation with its guilt our
Society is the lie we define with our silence

A living thing the sound fe run lasting forever always

    General CommentThe intro sounds like the intro of "100 Proof" by 88 Fingers Louie...

    General CommentBest song I think that they have ever written. Everything they say in all of their songs is true, they are the most influential band in my life. I used to listen to HC bands from the 80's, but none of them compare intellectually to bands such as Strike Anywhere.

    General CommentFirst off, amazing song.

    But I've always been wondering, what does he mean at the end when he says "A living thing the sound 'fe' run lasting forever always"? What is this word "fe"?!
