Songfacts®:

  • This song links to one of the concepts of Days Go By, which is that people feel like they've had enough of these current difficult times. Frontman Dexter Holland told Spinner: "You can almost sense something in the air, whether it be the Occupy movements or the elections. People are about ready to turn the tables. It's an observation and a warning. Something's got to give or something's really going to give."
