"I’m not ready to make nice, I’m not ready to back down, I’m still mad as hell and I don’t have time to go round and round and round …"

I’m listening to the new Dixie Chicks song, “Not Ready to Make Nice“, and I really like it.

I’m not a super political person, I have my own politics and I keep them separate from everyone else’s. And I encourage others to treat me in the same manner. Nothing up in your face.

But I thought all the hullabaloo over the Chicks was misplaced, so I’m enjoying that the first single off the new CD is basically saying that they are standing up for themselves and living without regret.

I don’t know, the lyrics are just applicable to other life experiences in a way. It’s probably my stubborn streak identifying so solidly with this situation.

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

For any of you that have never listened to the Chicks because they are “country”, you’re really missing out. I have loved each and every one of their CDs and I’m not really a big country fan.

Now I just have to figure out how to steal the album download from my sister’s iTunes. 😉
