For once in my life I've got something to say
I wanna say it now for now is today
A love has been given so why not enjoy
So let's all grab and let's all enjoy!

If the kids are united
Then we'll never be divided
If the kids are united
Then we'll never be divided

Just take a look around you
What do you see?
Kids with feelings
Like you and me
Understand him, he'll understand you
For you are him, and he is you

If the kids are united
Then we'll never be divided
If the kids are united
Then we'll never be divided

If the kids are united
Then we'll never be divided
If the kids are united
Then we'll never be divided

I don't want to be rejected
I don't want to be denied
Then its not my misfortune
That I've opened up your eyes

Freedom is given
Speak how you feel
I have no freedom
How do you feel?

They can lie to my face
But not to my heart
If we all stand together
It will just be the start

If the kids are united
Then we'll never be divided
If the kids are united
Then we'll never be divided

If the kids are united
Then we'll never be divided
If the kids are united
Then we'll never be divided

    yeah i saw a german band called ZSX or ZSK or something supporting anti-flag a little while ago and they did a sick cover of this! it just proved to me that the old style of punk was so much better, even if the whole movement was actually based on capitalist ideas like fasion-the actual music was cool, it was like shit simple songs often about really emo themes and usually quite catchy poppy vocal melodies but it was okay to like it, can you really get respect for liking music that does that now? btw i am british.

    Clash, Pistols, Undertones-its all good man!

    Jimmy purseys finest vocal full of passion and energy, he was also great entertainment as some of the top of the pops footage will show, 100% enthusiasm and true punk values.

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer

In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"
