POWER STATION

Hiding there
In the grass
On your own
Chaotic soul singing back
You're so alone

Just a boy
Home from school
You got a gun
It took so long but now you're gonna break the rules
Late for class
They're runnin' past
They don't know
They'll never know this day's the last
That they'll be cool

Hear the bell
It's time to yell
Hit the deck baby
Save yourself
You'll wish u missed this day of school....

From a bag
You break 'em loose
You break the truce
They underestimated you

In the halls
They're falling down
It's quite a sound
You like the way they beg and
Scream outloud

    Unlike all of the 009 songs, there is actually no "hidden message" in it. This song clearly conveys the meaning of the lyrics, it does not fool you into thinking of a different meanings. Listen to some of these lines in the song:

    "Hear the bell
    It's time to yell
    Hit the deck baby
    Save yourself
    You'll wish you missed this day of school"

    ...

    "Just a boy
    Home from school
    You got a gun"

    ...

    "In the halls
    They're falling down
    It's quite a sound
    You like the way they beg and
    Scream outloud

    The song is talking about the Columbine School Shooting in 1999. You can tell because in the video they have footage in pictures of the shooting and the lyrics I've mentioned above me all describe the story of the shooting.
