"I think this song goes back to Mr. Brett's past. It talks about everything he is not. For example, it can be seen in this line (a quick summation of the song) 'Mother, father, look at your little monster, I'm a hero, I'm a zero'. Here, he cannot live up his families expectations. However, he is still a hero to his fans."
"I strongly believe that this song is not about what the singer is not, rather, what people tell him he is not. I think that it represents how many people judge you for what you do or don't believe. It is like when the church refers to non Christians as 'lost souls', ignorant. The lyric 'Tell Saint Peter not to bet on me' illustrates how people believe he has no direction or chance for happiness, all because he is an atheist. Religious figures will tell you that without the presence of God your life, you are not a whole person. They are demeaning him."
"I Think this Song Talks about the 'new Generation' the so called 'kids' of today"
"Wow, I'd never thought of it that way, what Bad Religion said about this song. I like that idea much better than my ramble; the song sort of makes more sense to me now...it's an idea that everyone can identify with."
