"Unquestioned Answers" as written by Edward Carrington Breckenridge, James Riley Breckenridge, Dustin Michael Kensrue and Teppei Teranishi....
Your traps are all baited
Your scales are all weighted
But not resisting you would surely drive me insane
So I'm caught and convicted,
My rights are restricted
The imbecile dynasty continues to reign

Your apathy of thought
Has lead you to believe
That things are what they're not
My friend you've been deceived
The easiest route rarely leads to the truth
I see the self approval glaze your eyes
You know you're right
No need to worry why
A thousand stones remain unturned
In the wake of your unquestioned answers
And truth covered lies

Traditions some bear
Idly without out a care
But are determined that they stand unchanged
And those who choose to rebel
Just to raise up some hell
Tell me what are you hoping to gain

I can't reason with you
I speak words you can't hear
Social conditioning left you with deafened ears
So I take your face in hand
See that look in your eyes
That rigormortis stare,
That look that I despise
And so I turn from you
I walk these streets alone
Alone I search for truth
Ideal that you've disowned
And wait with fingers crossed
And pray you'll someday find
A way to see things though your own eyes

    General CommentI think this song's more about how the government controls everything and people just accept it, while (my rights are restricted) and the (imbecile dynasty continues to reign). Then Dustin says to the guy that when u accept everything, you become a drone for the higher power, and have no thoughts of your own...basically you are owned by the gov. This song kicks ass even if im totally off base.

    General Commenti agree with ballparkfrank....thrice's songs usually seem to have a deeper meaning than just breaking up and girls.

    General CommentI agree that this song has a deep meaning, but I don't think it is necessarily about the government. I think that it is about society getting a "grip" on someone and society forming their ideals to non-Christian ones. This person doesn't question what they've been told, only believe what society has taught it without questioning it at all. "The truth" being Christianity. Which this person is ignoring because of society. That's just what I get out of it tho. :)

    General CommentThe book 'Brave New World' by Aldus Huxley(sp?) comes to mind. Basically, its about how society has become a way of manipulating everyone and restricting free thought. Read the book, then you'll see my vantage.
