There, high on the watchtower
Keeping the peace
Whatever that means
Because you see the world through
Crosshairs and TVs, don't you

Ten foot walls built around us
White picket death
So quiet, so safe
But if we fall there will be nothing and no one to catch
So sit back and watch as we

Spin out of control
Spin out of control
Try to recover, but collide with each other
We spin out of control

Something I cannot change
I was born in a place
That lives by the sword
And thus to it's blade we're condemned
Don't you understand why we scream "no more"?

My dreams are of children
Orphaned by blood
Spilled at these hands
Here on the graves of the innocent
We raise our flag

Spin out of control
Spin out of control
Try to recover, but collide with each other
We spin out of control
Somethings you don't forgive, somethings you don't forget
Sometimes the fate you suffer is so much worse than death
We're way off course now and we're drifting out to sea
So cut the anchor on your heart to be set free

Spin out of control
Spin out of control
Try to recover, but collide with each other
We spin out of control

    I've never been all that great at getting meanings of songs, and rise against is a highly political band. But I think that this song's about the united states starting or joining wars and becoming entangled in conflicts that it can't shake free from. It's trying to do right, but it's using more and more force to try and fix things. It's like trying to put out a fire with gasoline: everything just gets worse.
