We used to watch them fall and we saw them distraught but the attention that they got it surrounds them for years we watched them enslaved and we could only laugh what a loser what a shame said we'd never play the... [chorus] and now it seems you haven't learned the lesson i guess you have to share the pain andnow your tainted blood leaves stains behind your back and in thier words i hear your shame how can you lie to me when in your eyes i can see glazed and vacant as you're caught in the act you've always wanted this now you feel the stab are you happy to be sad is there pleasure in the...[repeat chorus] as it make you sick do i make you scared when you see what you once were as you're shaving your head the scared boy thinks he's safe if you can't read his eyes but you can read you can read his eyes his lies

    General CommentI always thought it was about his friend joining the military. The guy is talking about how he always wanted it like he was brainwashed into it. But it's obvious in the vacant stare in his eyes that he hates it. "In their words I hear the shame" could be that he was brainwashed. "The scared boy thinks he's safe" could mean that he joined for the safety and financial protection it brings. Also, at the beginning of the song he references the appeal that you might have to other people for joining, and how that can be admirable but they used to mock it becuase they knew the truth.

    General CommentI think this song is also about someone joining the military especially because when you join you have to "shave your head"
