Their lyrics are about political and conscious issues and considering those are the lyrics I do in my music. Their music is also good,I mean Zach's angry rapping backed up by Tom's kickass guitar riffs is pure awesomeness. Can't forget Tim's bass or Brad's drumming. - DarkBoi-X

Alright now,let's ignore their angsty songs and look at their songs on their lyrically good songs. Minutes To Midnight(Which is their third album) is my favourite album by them because not only do they actually sound emotional but they also talk about actual problems like war,poverty,etc and not your first world problems that are often exaggerated by angsty people. In "Leave Out All The Rest" they express their emotions and it's great In "What I've Done" they talk about world issues and how humanity can be redeemed. - DarkBoi-X
