For The Orwells, Remember When will be an introduction of sorts--the 12-track rat-race shows the band's repertoire of pranging riffs and sneering, snot-nosed vocals. The tracks are a walloping war-cry from a generation that up until this point has only offered bubblegum pop--the animus of The Orwells. It's quite clear early on the in listening to the LP that the band is well aware of the past, the homage rings through the record, using the ghost of punk's past as their musical sprit guide.
Thoughts on Songs with The Orwells

Simple. It's about this girl who has become so psychologically damaged from an abusive relationship that she ends up committing suicide by shooting herself with her boyfriend's gun. In a way, the song talks about domestic violence and how it can impact the life of someone, to the point where they become suicidal because they don't want to live that life anymore. This song doesn't encourage domestic violence, but talks about why domestic violence is bad by telling a story about how an abusive relationship ended up in the girlfriend committing suicide.
