When it all came down, on that saturday night,
should I choose a side, at 9th at Pine.

Can we still say we're civilized,
watched some kid down at 9th at Pine...

which will it be? Sympathy or apathy,
which part of the human condition will I believe.

Tried then its tested
I've just decided
I failed
is it the crowd,
or the way this is going down?

Is being human watching all this without a sound?

    General CommentThey are reffering to the intersection of ninth and pine outside of the old club lollapalooza in Portland Oregon. Vinnie and Mike decided to stop the fight and then Vinnie wrote the song.
