Lower It

An invitation. Excluding no one. So walk right in and destroy the fucking place. You've lost your right to be part of my family. The family that welcomed you. You joined and left in disgrace Your flag was flaming. Before it ever started flying. Your flag was burning Burning down everyone in true salute. Sense of commitment. A sense of pride. I heard you say that we shared a destiny. Now it's plain to see you've got no sense at all. The name that once honored. You disgraced and made a mockery I could always see. The smoke from miles away. I could always see. The weakness in your eyes. Far away I feel the lies. While the sky is burning. You will always be unwanted.

This song is about someone very close to Dave letting him down. He obviously feels quite strongly about it. I wouldn’t like to speculate…. but Mark (ex-AFI guitarist) did leave after the last album now didn’t he? Hmmm.
