      Victor Ochoa this isn't just about the govt. its about the establishment and the rich assholes running the place. the song gets more and more meaningful when you listen to whistleblowers exposing them.

      +iya6dec I think the last phase of the lyric goes way deeper than democrats or republicans. Thousands upon thousands of massive plastic coffins, years ago a purchase from Homeland security for 1.4 billion hollow point bullets. Let me say it again, Homeland security. Makes you think

    Now that I know the lyrics the song is twice as good. But since I heard that comment about George Bush in the live version of this it's.................

    x100 times better.

    No. not screamo. if anything its Melodic hardcore or hardcore punk. screamo isnt a genre.

      Uhh that's not the point.....
      He said the genre of screamo doesn't exist, he meant its not a real category its like ya'll it's not a real word but people still say it. Like how screamo sounds more appropriate and easier than hardcore punk or melodic rock.

    Isn't it hilarious how nearly every song RA wrote to protest the Bush Administration are just as valid protests against the Obama administration? God, I want to go back to 2008 and find my edgy 14-year-old self who thought Obama was the "peace president" and slap the shit out of him.

      This is what happens when one takes to much from a song and loves it at the same time. I can understand the crazy part of it, but not the crazy that concerns people or hurt them.

    man this is by far my favorite RA song. its been my shit since it came out when i was in highschool, sadly, in all the years past, the lyrics are still spot on.
    "if we;re the flagship of peace and prosperity, we:re taking on water and about to fucking sink"
    so true.

    He doesn't "need" to, no... but there's nothing wrong with screaming, especially if the message and feel of the song is one of anger. This is a rare instance of a wholly-screamed Rise Against song, and I think it's effective and appropriate.

    Right? There are a few rap artists who do the same or similar as far as educating on how shitty society is (Ex: Hopsin) but none of them compare to bands like Rise Against or Rage Against The Machine in that aspect. Recently got into Rise Against after a friend recommended that and I'm loving them :D

    Sadly, as far as I know, Tim supports Obama too. Who has done "nothing (nothing) to stop the murder of people just like us". The only people who might actually do something is 3rd parties. Tim probably agrees more with green or justice than democrats.

    I understand we needed to do something to fight back, & not let them get away with this, but we made a bad dission on how to go about the war. We attacked an area, when it was a religion. The only reson the government hasn't said it was a religios war is because, as history will tell you, religios wars ARE the most deadlyest & bloodyest wars ever.
