Song Interpretation
Buried in the song, is the true meaning of the song inspired by a rift done by Boyd the day after the 2004 presidental election. America, in the view of the storyteller, is not the America he believe it should be. If we don't change the ways of the government, "I'm afraid we've lost the way." It boils down to the feelings of some in America in the eyes of the storyteller after the 2004 election. The storyteller sees that, "the devil is proud" with the way America is now, but there still is hope of the more innocent time America had, when America was a 'baby'.
