Everything is broken,
Everything is broken,
Everything is breaking down, breaking down

Everything is bleeding,
Everything is bleeding,
Everything is breaking down, breaking down

I pledge allegiance to a country without borders,
Without Politicians,
Watching for my sky to get torn apart

We are broken, we are bitter, we're the problem,
We're the Politicians,
Watching for our sky to get torn apart

Come on and break me

Entropy and aching,
Where have we been aiming?
Everything is fading now,
Fading now

We are the faded,
Splintered and sedated
Everything is fading now,
Fading now

I pledge allegiance to a country without borders,
Without Politicians,
Watching for my sky to get torn apart

We are broken, we are bitter, we're the problem,
We're the Politicians,
Watching for our sky to get torn apart

Come on and break me
Come on and break me

Oh!
Oh!

I pledge allegiance to a country without borders,
Without Politicians,
Politicians,
Politicians,

I am broken, I am bitter!
I'm the problem, I'm the Politician,
Watching for my sky to get torn apart

Come on and break me
Come on and break me

    General CommentAwesome song! When I saw Switchfoot live, Jon Foreman said that people misunderstand this song and its not actually about politicians, its about the politician inside of us. It's kind of difficult to understand either way...But its a pretty pumping song and I really like it. The way I see it this song is about the fact that we all want to be in control, in power, like politicians. Yet theres noone that we can really trust, because everyone is looking out for themselves (sounds alot like the politicians we know eh). So I think Switchfoot are saying that they want to live for a country (could be taken as living for God) without these people in power or control. They want out from the entropy, the greed and the corruption. Anyways thats what the song means to me.
