"Justin" as written by and Jake Andrews....
they're advertising on the tv
become a soldier
it's still high school politics, you know
nothing's changed
jocks and assholes still don't know shit about aesthetic
i think i smell a rat
we sold our revenge
now we're working for them
where's the divide

you know justin, well justin's dead
and yahoo won't let his family
have access to his email account
the new's reporter said
i feel so bad for you, it's so awkward
there's really nothing i can say
merry christmas, happy holidays
from network and its affiliates
so where's the divide

    General CommentThis song references the story of Justin Ellsworth, who was killed by a bomb in Iraq. His family wanted to access his Yahoo email account to read his last accounts, but Yahoo declined to turn over the account password. The family took Yahoo to court and Yahoo later conceded.

    General CommentThis song is pure garbage, and probably the worst piece of shit AM! has ever released. I seriosuly have trouble listening to this song, despite the fact that they are probably my favorite band. There is so much more that can be said about the outrages of war being advertised to young people, how they go into the army without anywhere else to turn, about how war ruins young people's lives. No, but what does the lyrics say? They complain about how Yahoo won't let the boy's FAMILY access his email account? Who gives a shit? I can't tell who this song is directed to? Is it directed to the two-faced media who fakes caring about the dead soldier, is it directedto war itself, to the outrages of war, to tell people not to join the army? What is this song saying? I think it's specifically against the media, but it says so much more about the war that it clouds and almost doesn't even indicate the meaning to this worthless song.

    General CommentOnly as well as can be expected.
    It really hurts, but at the same time, I'm half expecting to wake up, or the camera guys to come out and say it was all a sick, twisted joke. Ya know? It's just so...unreal. We made plans to hang out tomorrow too.

    General CommentI know how that is :|
    she was also my cousin, and when I came home one day my parents told me and I thought they were kidding, but then I realized they weren't and I seriously passed out.

    General CommentOmg. That's awful. I didn't pass out, but everything went into slow motion and I could feel my heart beating in the pit of my stomach. I thought I was going to throw up.

    Okay, I'm not crazy. Neither is my little sister, but the day we had made plans, I went up to his girlfriend's house and spent the night, because I'm really good friends with her and I wanted to make sure she was okay. While I was gone, my sister said she heard knocking on the door, but no one was there. She would open up the door, see that nobody was there, and then 5 minutes later there would be another knock. After a while, she just stood at the door and looked through the eye-hole thing (I guess, to see if someone was playing ding-dong ditch or something, but was knocking on the door instead), she had her hand up against the door, and she heard the knocking again. She could feel them knocking, but no one was outside. Weirdest thing ever.

    Dudes, this is not an automated message or anything, it's a kickass band page, and if you like Against Me!, you'll dig it.
    Incidentally, Justin happens to be my name.
