You've Made Us Conscious

Album: Controversy Loves Company (2005)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is about how people wait for the music industry to inform us who the next great artist is. So many great bands die out before making the "big time" or are never discovered because of the politics behind the radio industry. The song explains how the band struggles to not fall into the hype that the music industry creates - the voice and sound is what makes a band unique. >>
