"No Authority" as written by Matt Riddle and Trever M Keith....
there is someone who knows everything there is to know
there is someone who is too afraid to let it show
we live by consequences
we never seem to get it right
conflict of circumstances
and sometimes we may lose a fight

wouldn't you know
something is going wrong
wouldn't you know
something is really wrong
and you can't do a thing about it

no, no, no you have no authority
no, no, no I am who I want to be

there are those of us who just sit back and never try
there are those of us who just sit back and wonder why
we live by consequences
we never seem to get it right
conflict of circumstances
and sometimes we may lose a fight

wouldn't you know
something is going wrong
wouldn't you know
something is really wrong
and you can't do a thing about it

no, no, no you have no authority
no, no, no I am who I want to be

    General CommentI think this song is talking about how sometimes in life things just don't go your way. Even though you fight for what you believe in; you still have no control over it and can't do much about it. This song has lots of meaning and its great to listen to. Over all. GREAT SONG!!!!

    General CommentThis song is class, i agree with punkrockchicka, i think the songs about things out of your control and how you should just let them type of things happen. Another very good song from a very good band, shame they dont get the recognition they deserve.

    General Commentyeah really, they are one of the much deep, depthful meaning lyrical band and so touching to ones innerself, at least for me, but yeah u two are close to the meanings, just one thing i think they try to point is no one can change who u r, be who u want and dont let any mother fucker tell you what to do or how to live or who to be, dont give in to bullshit pressures in life, fuck conformity!
