"Giver" as written by and Christopher James Wollard Charles Allen Ragan....
Dream wild in waves of confidence and heart
Don't underestimate the power of your part
Throw the rules away
Trust your gut and make it
On your own

Don't underestimate the glories of the road
Because when you're on your own you've got it all
Throw the rules away
To stand and deliver now.
All is yours

I don't want to sit back to slack and waste it all
Since surrounded with the "Hearts and Souls"
I'll get back on my feet, wash my hands clean
And roll back to the front to sing out
"Here we go!"
Here we go, here we go, here we go...

Throw the rules away
To stand and deliver now.
All is yours

I don't want to sit back to slack and waste it all
Since surrounded with the "Hearts and Souls"
I'll get back on my feet, wash my hands clean
And roll back to the front to sing out
"Here we go!"

    General CommentThis song is amazing. One of the best off of the New CD. It means that you have to live by the moment, dont always do the right. Party like a mutha fucka. It's all about living free.

    General CommentThe lyrics are easily interpretted. Basically, live as you want. You'll enjoy it more if you don't restrict yourself. If you don't, you'll regret it.

    General CommentDid anyone else catch the "subtle" Bouncing Souls reference? I think this might be a bit of an homage to them.

    Here we go here we go!

    General Commentthe bouncing souls reference works well, especially because the pete is playing the guitar solo in it.
