  • All men with stars upon the chest
    Save yourselves, your family
    Don't worry 'bout the rest
    Small child receives light through the crack
    The human mile, they're never coming back
    Hold out your hand and ask for some
    Now and again she sits beneath the tree
    The sign above reads
    Hard work will set you free
    Hold out your hand and ask for some
    Too late for another direction
    Always what we've got in store
    Hurry back we've all been waiting
    We can't take much anymore
    Where are the days where brothers are brothers
    A childless mother
    Leave it except for one Writer/s: CHAD KROEGER, MICHAEL DOUGLAS HENRY KROEGER, MICHAEL KROEGER, MIKE KROEGER, RYAN ANTHONY PEAKE, RYAN PEAKE

  • David from Alamo Heights, TxThe words "Hard Work Will Set You Free" refers to the words written about the gate to Auschwitz (the real sign is written in German, of course).
  • Joe from Marion, OhThis is an awesome song, I've been looking for the meaning for a long time.
