Conclusion

Pro-social Content

"Citizen Soldier" is a tribute to the men and women of the National Guard. A man refuses to give in to fear or be destroyed by circumstances on "It's Not My Time." "It's the Only One You've Got" challenges people feeling ashamed, isolated or broken to re-engage with life. That sort of rejuvenation occurs on the tender romantic ballad "Your Arms Feel Like Home" ("There's a life inside of me that I can feel again"). A couple looking for a fresh start take a leap of faith ("Runaway"), while a man desperate to heal a relationship admits to being part of the problem ("Give It to Me"). Frontman Brad Arnold stands up to a domineering person on "Let Me Be Myself" ("One time let me be myself so I can shine with my own light").

Objectionable Content

A line about waking up alone implies that a girl may be used to sleeping with a boyfriend ("She Don't Want the World"). "These Days" includes a mild profanity. On "When It's Over" Arnold gives up on a person whose pride has alienated everyone.

Summary Advisory

In a hard-rocking genre known for a lot of bitterness and moping, 3 Doors Down is about self-improvement and gaining emotional clarity. The band's fourth disc still has a melancholy song or two, but families should be able to work through any trouble spots.
