"Screamer" as written by and Benji/madden Madden....
Communication is a lot like the wind,
When I speak, It's like no one understands and I'm left with empty hands,
Forever I can't speak, So many things I'll never learn
You can't cross bridges that you've burned,
Why is life such an issue in your mind,
Why are the answers to my problems hard to find, So hard to find
Don't forget to buckle when you fall,
Beneath the pressure of the seconds, when your life became a screamer,
Staring at the sea, things become so small,
I want movies of my dreams, and pictures on my wall,
Pictures on my wall,


You say that I'm a dreamer,
I say you're a non believer,
Take out the light, take out the light, Start screamin',
I'm dreaming, I'm a dreamer, no one believes me,
bet you don't either, So tell me what to do
Take out the light, Take out the light,
Take out the light, take out the light start screamin'

    General Commentthis song is simple.

    the persona(narrator) is a dreamer and/or someone who has visions and plans for life. "I want movies of my dreams and pictures on my wall."

    problem is, when he speaks "It's like no one understands and I'm left with empty hands forever. " He concludes metaphorically that he cant speak.

    He begins to get frustrated with life and his situation with whoever he refers to "you" as. "Why is life such an issue when you're mine" the other person he refers to doesent listen to him either and is like everyone else. "no one believes me, and you don't either."

    he gets filled with frustration, anger and confusion and all he can do is scream because he doesent know what else to do "tell me what to do".

    he is yearning for a voice, you can hear it in how he sings from the first word. as for the line "take out the light" well it obviously has something to do with his outrage in screaming but what it means exactly doesent really matter that much.

    General Commentt this song reminds me of an old boyfriend of mine. im your typical dreamer and he was always telling me that daydreaming gets you nowhere and i should working to make my life. and of course all we did was fight so we eventually broke up and im having fun with my life while he's in the hospital with some stress disease. i guess life favors the dreamers who travel with the wind.
