about

Welcome to the angry period. This song was about two things, really. We wrote this song soon after getting dropped from our record label (Flicker Records,) and we were upset at that whole situation. We felt sick AND abandoned. We felt lied to.
It's also about the careless way that we attach ourselves to changing things in our world...we say we want it, but we don't do things to make it happen. Most times, shallow commitments are very easy to see through, and people only end up feeling deceived and broken.
When you truly love something or someone, your actions will at some point line up with your words and become one. Otherwise, it's all just a "crashing gong or clanging cymbal," nothing but a bunch of useless noise.

Another interesting note about this song, we used to haul around a guy named Jay Armstrong with us on tour. Jaybird ran sound, lights, merch, drove the van, loaded the trailer...he did just about everything. It was so much fun having that guy around. On one tour, he met a gal that would later become his wife, and soon after that it was his time to stay home. Jay had been the frontman fourtoomany, the biggest band in the local Mississippi scene back when we were freshmen15. When Jay would scream, it was like hearing a T-Rex battle a space shuttle, and man was it intense. To add to the intensity, he had the stage presence of an enraged hobbit taking back the shire. You can hear that scream during the bridge at about the 2:25 mark in this track. We loved having Jay out with us. He and his wife Lindsey are doing well and are actually expecting a baby soon!

lyrics

I feel sick and abandoned, can't believe that this happened.
I must say my heart is on the floor.
Would this count as deception?
Or are you some exception?
For your words, they leave me wanting more.

Everybody wants a revolution, to change the world.
But we want it!
Stop looking for a quick solution to change the world.
But we want it!
We need to learn to love, we need to learn to love.

Get your fix, your conviction,
brings that thick, burning friction
that leaves me going on my way.
'Cause my ears, they won't hear it,
when your deeds don't come near it.
There's no love in anything you say.

Everybody wants a revolution, to change the world.
But we want it!
Stop looking for a quick solution to change the world.
But we want it!
We need to learn to love, we need to learn to love.

Everybody wants a revolution, to change the world.

Everybody wants a revolution, to change the world.
But we want it!
Stop looking for a quick solution to change the world.
But we want it!
We need to learn to love, we need to learn to love.
