"Leader of Men" as written by and Chad/peake Kroeger....
Tell your friends not to think aloud
Until they swallow
Whisper things into my brain
Your voice sounds so hollow

I am not a leader of men
Since I prefer to follow
Do you think I could have a drink
Since it's so hard to swallow
So hard to swallow

So turn the television off
And I will sing a song
And if you suddenly have the urge
You can sing along

I touch your hand, I touch your face
I think the fruit is rotten
Give me lessons on how to breathe
Cause I think I've forgotten
I think I've forgotten

One day, up to a cliff
That overlooks the water
I jumped in to save a girl
It was somebody's daughter
And now the ring is on my hand
It was given to me by her
To this day we all sit around
And dream of ways to get higher
To get much higher

Tell your friends not to think aloud
Until they swallow
Whisper things into my brain
Your voice sounds so hollow

I am not a leader of men
Since I prefer to follow
Do you think I could have a drink
Since it's so hard to swallow
So hard to swallow

    General CommentI always thought it was about a man being reluctant about taking a leadership role. I guess song meanings are much deeper than their titles suggest.

    General Commenthmmm.....could the line "so hard to swallow" have to do with swallowing your pride? it makes sense to me because if you look at the 1st verse it says: "telly our friends not to think out loud until they swallow" it could mean not talk until you are ready to get ridiculed for what you say, plus he says its hard to swallow, so he could be sayin its hard to swallow his own pride...i dunno, just a suggestion
