The Birthday Massacre – Red Stars lyrics

Best off cruel intentions
Bounding what they fail to mention
No truth.
All pretention raise your hand to give attention

You'd give it
We'd take it
You'd build it
We'd break it
You silently erase it
You'd feel it
We'd fake it

It's my red star (steal it)
It's my red star (can't let go)
It's my red star (conceal it)
It's my red star
Oh no...

Wasted education
Celebrating imitation
Misplaced admiration
Speaking for a generation.

You'd give it
We'd take it
You'd build it
We'd break it
You silently erase it
You'd feel it
We fake it

It's my red star (steal it)
It's my red star (can't let go)
It's my red star (conceal it)
It's my red star
Oh no...

    Why would this song be about communism (that's the correct spelling by the way) if they don't know anything about it, except what they've learned in school. I think they're talking about the education system here in america. They take out the facts they don't want others to remember to have a seemingly perfect past (or somewhat, considering the civil war). No truth in that. And I think 'misplaced admiration' refers to our admiration of thugs and robbers such as jesse james in our school systems. So, I think this song is referring to our messed up school system.

    As an example of what I wrote, this is what I mean:.
    I made my name after the band Deadsy. Because I admire their music and what I feel or believe it means. What if they jsut came out saying they have no meanings and it was all random s*t. Which some of it is.
    Elijah from deadsy would be a red star and also son of cher hah :) who had a easy entry into the music business. I still love deadsy: P haha.

    I think the song is about writing music that is fake, which makes the star red. Red meaning fake and evil or lying. It kinda shows in the song throughout, I do understand the commi plot but it does not match with the you sign and we erase it stuff. It is about how the star hides the truth and that the lyrics are just fake but you feel it, they don't.
    In the end its just a business like any other. Some do it to change the world like a philosopher, scholar, or heroe. Some do it because they are needy.
    Misplace admiration with stars because we think we feel what they do, so we admire them, they speak for a generation but they lie, which make us a lie but its all we know. I love this song, any ideas?
