Mutiny! SET YOUR GOALS
This is a full blown assault, A cannon blast to mark your fall.
Take back your discipline now, This is a genuine revolt.
Superior, you are inferior. We've risen like we've never, never risen above before.
Conformity has no authority. I can agree to compromise. Contemptible are your contracts.
I will find the line and cross it every time. Contemptible are your labels.
This is a full blown assault!Take back your discipline now. This is a genuine revolt.
I am far from, so far from romanced. There's too much business in this;
I'm going back to my garage. I have been completely disenchanted.
Turn my amp up to eleven; six nickel wound strings have saved me again.
Suits and ties are not to congregate in my sanctuary, judged only by my hands.
Down here is our time; it's innocent, yeah, and it is so divine.
Our music: rewrite not a single line. Down here is our time and we will shine.
Our music: making wishes on your dime this time.Heroes have betrayed.
We sing for better days. Don't sign our lives away,to impure industries.
You're going under!We have come to take it over!So sound the thunder!
We have come to take it over!NOW! Sign our band and we'll write you a chorus.
We will use your gimmicks if you think they will sell us.
'Cause we won't survive without your acceptance. Can we be friends?
Can we be friends?Can! We! Be! Friends!? Mutiny!
In this vast network of sharks and minnows, where the minnows outnumber the sharks a million to one, why is it that we have yet to converge? To take on the upper hand? Why have we been so scared?Well not today, not anymore. This is us growing up, still young, but no longer impressionable.We have come to pillage!We have come to burn!We have come to incite the riot!We have come to take it over!
Heroes have betrayed. We sing for better days. Don't sign our lives away,to impure industries.
This song is definatly a social message. It is all about revolting against society and standing up for yourself and the people around you. It is about being forced to live on the bottom but soon rising to the top. The singers of this song sing about rising up against rules, regulations and the "norm" way of life. They form a large group and start to rebel. They are insulting past "heros" of the music industrie who have sold out and become unoriginal. They refuse to end up that way and "sign our lives away to impure industries". They decide that NOW is the time to make a stance and stand up for what they believe in. They mock the industries that are fake and that change bands for popularity, "We will use your gimmicks if you think they will sell us, can we be friends?" This lane is a mockery of the buisness that changed the music industry by using gimmicks to sell music. By the end of the song they express how there is way more of them than there are authority and they now are going to stand up and stop waiting around, "In this vast network of sharks and minos, where the minos out number the sharks, why is it that we have yet to converge, well not today." Clearly they are ready to do whatever it takes to overtake the "sharks" and "incite the riot." Even though they are still young kids they are "no longer impressionable" and they can think for themselves and decide what is right to them.
