"D.t.o." as written by Mathew Paul Baumbach, Brendon Cohen, Michael Thomas Fleischmann, Michael Kennedy and Tim Williams....
Get up, look around
That I see each and every day
And you will see the lies
I deal with them in my own way
I try to breed myself right
I try to breed my thoughts right
All you people stand against me
The threat of your hostility
Your talk behind my back
What the fuck should I do?
Induces my attack
To make myself a man
What the fuck should I do
I'll never give up my pride
I'm doing the best that I can
And I'll never surrender my hate
You on the opposite side
You're the one who made me this way
Suppressed anger for all these years now
Disgusting people, you stand and point at me
They are all but the pathetic
Embarking on a crusade that is so damn addictive
Therefore their prosperity
It will never ever be granted
What's up with this world?
What the fuck, I can't breathe
Ask yourself a question, do you need to conform?
Pray for the forgiveness as you're stripped of your rights
With the brain-washing games that are engaged to restrain now
White collared people always seem to decide
The power to cure the power to kill
The power is ours we'll use it at will
Complexed is society, waging pressure upon our backs
And punishing our methods with their profits
These lashes killing and it pushes down, breaking our knees deep into the ground
And faulting, on the preside, once again I just can't decide
What's up with this world, what the fuck I can't breathe
Books of knowledge showing their glint forms of torture
Dropping the oppressor is our only solution
Psychanalytical ways will never ever succeed
Our lives are neglected our thoughts are invaded
But we had fought for conformity?
In finding a way into our brains and motives
Get up and step to conformity
This is not the end

    I love that lyric i'm pretty sure its reffering to people who have religious status-vicars, priests...it shows how much importance religion has over everything, which is just pathetic in my opinion, religion dont mean shit.

    Great song, great band ;)

    General Comment"What's up with this world?
    What the fuck, I can't breathe".

    That pretty much sums up the meaning right there. :) Now, 'why' 'you' can't breathe, well, that depends on the person.

    "White collared people always seem to decide".

    White-collared workers who do less labor for more money. ie. Bosses, CEOs, the Elite, "the man". They make the rules. They have oppressed him and pissed him off. And he knows that only action will change the "status quo".
