Letters To The President Lyrics

When we were younger we used to sit on my porch
And talk smack about girls and professional sports
There’s a lot of things I wanted to say
But never got a change to find a way

(One) take a good look at all of your high schools

    I love these guys SO much.
    The song is obviously about a boy who doesn't like the country he lives in and see's all kinds of problems in it.
    He wonders if anyone else notices, since nothing is being done about it.
    (Hence the "DO They Even Know?" parts.)
    He wants to tell someone but he isn't brave enough so for now he's at a loss.
    Then before the part about Tommy, he says
    "But for now I'll start with something.
    And he talks about what happened to Tommy when the Government took out the track team in school.
    And He's letting them know that he and all the other kids his age want to be innocent but they can't because of all the garbage going on.

    Pretty good song, talking about all the things like laws that are prety dumb like 'murder is wrong but the jail times not fair' which is true, because you hear in the news about people who have commited crimes and then there's all these people saying that they didn't deserve such a harsh jail time.
    at the start is says "when I was younger I used to sit on my porch and talk smack about girls and professional sports, there's a lot of things I wanted to say" he's saying that instead of talking about all that stuff with really no point to it he could be talkin bout the stuff that actually does matter and that he's maybe concerned about like the stuff he disagrees with in the world..maybe
