  • Spinz from Middletown, NyThis song to me says that we need to get off the bandwagon movements, start acting like responsible individuals and DO what we know is RIGHT. Getting something done isnt about writing a letter to tell someone else to take care of our own responsibilities but WALK THE WALK, and DO something to create real change. Dont fight instint that tells you what is right is right and dont listen to extreme ideas that blot out instintual truth. The singer is screaming "We Follow WAR" (i think) and instintually, does that sound like the right thing to do?
  • Thomas from Toronto, CanadaThe lyrics "All we ever do is talk
    We like to ride but we never walk
    We make is so damn easy we get bored"
    means that we don't we got it so easy now that we never notice the little things in life and everythings so easy no that we get bored faster.
  • Caz from Minnesot Lake, Nmi think this is one of their best songs...... NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
