I can't believe how tightly
you can shut your eyes
Mouth open wide your words say more
than any text book could
I've never seen nothing
take up so much space
Your wisdom rings hollow
It's just some shit that your drunk father
nailed into your head when you were ten
He stomped on your mind
You could not bridge the gap
between you and me
Some things are better left unsaid
But I can't just smile - nod my head when
I should be screaming - Screaming at the sun
So I waste my time beating my head
against brick fucking walls
Sharing words with you
With you

    General CommentI think this song is about how close minded people can be and I think its especially talking about homophobic people -It's just some shit that your drunk father
    nailed into your head when you were ten -
    -----I could be wrong "^_^"

    General CommentThis song rocks. Its the one I always skip to. It rocks even harder live too. Anyone who has seen Bane knows what I'm talking about. They are one of (if not) the best live bands out there. Their energy is just unreal.

    General Comment"thisplacesucks" what would possibly give you the idea that this song was about being ignorant towards gay people other than the video interview of aaron bedard telling the story about the meaning of the song, about his coworker who hated gays and said bad things about spanish people.. haha
