Above us lay the burdens
Below us lay the truths
We're somewhere in the middle
And we're all discontent too
Is someone watching over you?
Inside, they know what's best for you

Judgment's not tomorrow
But today (yes, now it's here)
But no, it isn't Jesus
Take a look at all your peers
They're all looking down on you
Inside they know what's best for you

Everybody knows what's best for you

    this song is true for everyday life, and its pretty much bullshit how everyone judges you. Dont push someone aside untill you know who they really are, kids.

    its not about judging, its about parents, and grown-ups who say they know whats in OUR best interest...reminds me of Institutionalized by Suicidal Tendencies, a little

    It almost sounds like he's implying people are just keeping god alive in themselves because it's impossible to break from the stares of "everyone else" They all know what's best for you, I bet everyone knows exactly what he means
