I've got a stranglehold on this decision
All those opposed can rot in hell
Any day now the words will form a sentence
You'll be reduced to nothingness

I've got a stranglehold on this decision
All those opposed can rot in hell
Any day now the words will form a sentence
You'll be reduced to nothingness

Wading through this mess together
Hand in hand, shoulder to shoulder
Some may stumble, some may fall behind

Well it's high time we step outside
Drop the gloves and settle this like a man
Well we might stall and hem and haw
We might not fight but we won't walk away
No, we won't walk away

Wading through this mess together
Hand in hand, shoulder to shoulder
Some may stumble, some may fall behind

    General CommentGreat observation!

    In a 2005 commencement speech at Emory, Tom Brokaw said:

    " . . . real life is not college; real life is not high school. Here is a secret that no one has told you: Real life is junior high.

    The world that you're about to enter is filled with junior high adolescent pettiness, pubescent rivalries, the insecurities of 13-year-olds, and the false bravado of 14-year-olds. "

    Absolutely spot on, isn't it?

    It's a very good song but the song and the video together are just brilliant. Rarely do I see that happen. It's already one of the highlights of my year in music.
