  • Freedom's just a word today, freedom's just a word
    When someone takes your word away, it's seldom ever heard
    So take a sentence full of things you're not supposed to say
    Carry on, but don't write 'em down, or you'll be gone

    Love is just a song today, love is just a song
    When someone takes the song away, you seldom sing along
    So take those lyrics serious and sing your life away
    Carry on, but don't write 'em down, or they'll be gone

    All we ever do is talk; we like to ride, but we never walk
    We make it so damn easy, we get bored
    Why can't anybody see, what's good for you is good for me?
    I can't take your silly world
    I can't take your silly world no more

    Peace is just two fingers now, peace was just a face
    When someone put it on a shirt, you knew to count the days
    So take those fingers, tape 'em up, and shove 'em up your ass
    And carry on, but don't try it now, 'cause peace is gone

    All we ever do is talk; we like to ride, but we never walk
    We make it so damn easy, we get bored
    Why can't anybody see, what's good for you is good for me?
    I can't take your silly world
    I can't take your silly world no more

    We fight our instincts
    We go to extremes
    We fight our instincts
    We go to extremes

    We fight our lives
    We fight our lives
    We fight our lives
    We fight our lives
    We fight our lives
    We fight our lives
    We fight our lives
    We fight our

    We fight our lives
    We fight our lives
    We fight our lives
    We fight our lives
    We fight our lives
    We fight our lives Writer/s: COREY TAYLOR, JAMES ROOT, JAMES DONALD ROOT, JOSH RAND, SHAWN ECONOMAKI

  • 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
