i'm not impressed, I guess i'm not impressed
with which dialect, which dialect marches best
and who reaches heaven in what order
when our kids are baptized in mortar.

it's a shame that our messiahs move their pawns
from different mountains
and we're left to dance these bodies 'round the fountain.
if a leader preaches worship to the sheep within the valley,
who'll be riding in a tank that says "just married"?

i'm not impressed, I guess i'm not impressed
with which dialect, which dialect marches best
we found that ultimately you can make it snow in the summer.

contrary to what you believe we oscillate and vary speed.
the food in jail is sulphury.
how do inuits spell relief?

summer's trudging closer and a flurry of white as well.
it's the heart of nuclear winter and I'm scared as hell.

it's a shame that our messiahs move their pawns
from different mountains
and we're left to dance these bodies 'round the fountain.
if a leader preaches worship to the sheep within the valley,
who'll be riding in a tank that says "just married"?

it's a shame that i (shame that i)
it's a shame that i (shame that i)
a shame that i
shame

    General CommentWOW IM POSTING AGAIN... it could also be about a religious war. and with the events within the past year it could very well be about a jihad (a holy war waged on behalf of Islam as a religious duty.) once again i could be wrong... but thats my two cents

    General Commentfirst things first;

    this song, along with every other track off of worship&tribute is just amazing. when i first listened to the cd after i bought it, this song was my instant favourite along with pink roses & two tabs of mescaline. anyways, i really agree on what people are saying about the religious aspects of this song, how people ("sheep") can be so easily led by another into believing anything...and also i agree with all the war/military/9-11 comments.. im not quite sure which of these are right. but maybe theyre both right..or maybe neither is right. who knows. daryl (& of course the rest of glassjaw) is just amazing. this record just blows me away just as eyewtkas & kkbb did..

    secondly...

    this whole glassjaw/nfg/boxcar/blink182/etcetcetc thing is oh so juvenile. id like to believe that gj fans are just a LITTLE more mature than this.. its music people.. come on. who CARES about genre or the "scene" music has more important components other than the label it is given. id like to think that people might be openminded enough to like a wide range of music & be appreciative of it all. just because nfg isnt "punk enough" for you, doesnt make them good. everything doesnt have to be fucking the government & put on your plaid pants. so-called punk isnt about that...to me its being able to say "fuck you" and having the freedom to be what you want. so stop all this nonsense about how so&so isnt good enough and blah blah blah.. everyone has their own musical taste. dont judge it. just deal with the fact that there are a billion bands out their to be heard..people will listen to whatever they want if they like it. *nod*

    General CommentThis song is about 9/11. If you have ever been to a live show since they started touring for Worship & Tribute, he says, "This song is about 9/11..." And I can see clearly see this song is about 9/11.
