In my opinion, I can, but that is beside the point. Just because I am not the president of America, doesn't mean I can criticize what Obama does, if we're drawing comparisons.
The lyrics are dull and cliché. Again, this is just my opinion. The song is nice and Erik sings great but lyrically, I can't get behind it at all.
EDIT: Absolutely love Living On The Run though. No lyrical masterpiec
