You can't tell me how to be you can't tell me what I should see when I'm sleeping I'm still believing stripped of all i dentity I try to sleep I grit my teeth I'm so afraid what will tomrrow bring? I won't fight in any wars and I can't stand to see much more can't tell me what to say, I will follow my own way 'cause I'm a person, I'm a thinking person please believe that love's not lost hate and shame a crooked cross I'm so ashamed don't make martyrs out of us...chorus...and when the bombs come falling ssown the hate is still inside of you but if you want a better world then I'll be right behind you

    General CommentThis song is pretty self-explanatory. It says to live your life how you want to live it, instead of how the media, government, authority figures, etc. want you to live. It also stands as an anti-war song. This is one of my favorite songs by this band, along with We All Fall Down. More people need to listen to this band, but since The Explosion refuses to sell out, unfortunately few people will hear this powerful music. That's such a shame, since The Explosion's music is better than and more thought-provoking than nearly all of the music most people listen to today.

    General CommentYES! another explosion enthusiast. Though we won't be getting any new material from the band anymore, the word should still be spread...LONG LIVE THE EXPLOSION.
