Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Everything is broken,
Everything is broken,
Everything is breaking down, breaking down

Everything is bleeding,
Everything is bleeding,
Everything is breaking down, breaking down

I pledge allegiance to a country without borders,
Without Politicians,
Watching for my sky to get torn apart

We are broken, we are bitter, we're the problem,
We're the Politicians,
Watching for our sky to get torn apart

Come on and break me

Entropy and aching,
Where have we been aiming?
Everything is fading now,
Fading now

We are the faded,
Splintered and sedated
Everything is fading now,
Fading now

I pledge allegiance to a country without borders,
Without Politicians,
Watching for my sky to get torn apart

We are broken, we are bitter, we're the problem,
We're the Politicians,
Watching for our sky to get torn apart

Come on and break me
Come on and break me

Oh!
Oh!

I pledge allegiance to a country without borders,
Without Politicians,
Politicians,
Politicians,

I am broken, I am bitter!
I'm the problem, I'm the Politician,
Watching for my sky to get torn apart

Come on and break me
Come on and break me

This is the only reason why my country, India is a third world country is

An example of how our politicians make a problem worse is this.

Wow, that's insane. Obviously, the same is true in Pakistan and almost any other developing country.

I don't think that this song is necessarily criticizing politicians though, or at least, not only politicians. I won't say anymore, because I want to encourage a good discussion :D

I agree, though I think the situation in developing countries like India and Pakistan are especially bad, because people have the mindset that the government is there for ruling them, instead of serving them...

And I am beginning to understand you mean, the worst type of 'helping' you can do, is forcing others to live by your ideals. Its not only politicians, but everyone who is only driven by self interest is 'tearing the sky apart'.....

Am I wrong?Please say a bit more...

I adore Nirvana :) Most people would say that Switchfoot and Nirvana are completely different, but I argue that both of them are poets and fantastic musicians. Powerful indeed.
