"The Sign" as written by - Buddha, Malin Berggren, Jenny Berggren and - Joker....
I, I got a new life, you would hardly recognize me, I'm so glad
How can a person like me care for you?
I, why do I bother, when you're not the one for me?
Oo-hoo-hoo-oo-oo
Is enough enough?

I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes, I saw the sign
Life is demanding without understanding
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes, I saw the sign
No one's gonna drag you up to get into the light where you belong
But where do you belong?

I, under the pale moon, for so many years I wondered who you are
How could a person like you bring me joy?
Under the pale moon, where I see a lot of stars
Oo-hoo-hoo-oo-oo
Is enough enough?

I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes, I saw the sign
Life is demanding without understanding
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes, I saw the sign
No one's gonna drag you up to get into the light where you belong
But where do you belong?

I saw the sign and it opened up my mind
And I am happy now living without you
I've left you
Oh, oh-oh-oh
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes, I saw the sign
No one's gonna drag you up to get into the light where you belong

(I saw the sign, I saw the si-ee-ign) I saw the sign
(I saw the sign, I saw the si-ee-i-ee-ign)
(I saw the sign, I saw the sign)
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes, I saw the sign

    Song MeaningILLUMINATI SYMBOLISM. There are Freemason/Illuminati symbols plastered ALL over Disney, Music, Movies, Videos, T.V. shows etc. The moon is a HUGE give-away, as it "illuminates" -gives secret knowledge.

    "I saw the sign" is based on someone who was illuminated by seeing and understanding Masonic/Illuminati symbols as they are revealed to those practicing it.

    While you are on the internet, check out the symbols, then watch Disney Jr. for about 6 hours with a notebook, see how many symbols they sneak into every show.

    General CommentOMg, I LOVE this song! It was my first real favorite song ever...in 2nd grade. Me and my friend sused to blast it in my living room and I would sing it over and over! LoL, anyway...the song is saying that a girl is finally realizing that the gy who caused her so much trouble isn't worth everything he's putting her through. She finally saw "The Sign" and now she has a new life without him and all of the drama he brought to her life.

    General CommentShes saying she was stuck deeply inlove with a boy without human empathy only capable of truely careing about his own egotistic needs. In who she holds a lot of hostility for. shes saying hes manpulative and didnt posses normal human communication skills, and would stop talking to her without telling her why, shes saying shes a perfectionist, and very critcal of herself.

    This song is about the ever visting denail people face in something that goes against, everything there use to, grown to known, understand, or beileve in.

    General CommentThis song is about opening your eyes to the occult and the Illuminati symbolism that is hidden in plain sight, especially in the entertainment industry. The sign" in the music video for this song is clearly the Ankh, the ancient Egyptian symbol of life and the worship of Horus/Osiris/Isis that still pervades Western society to this day, whether in the form of obelisks, pyramids, the all-seeing eye on the dollar bill, the Statue of Liberty, etc. She has "opened up her eyes" to the possibility that life is not what it appears to be to the naked eye and now has to question her divinely appointed place in the universe. The verses are her conversing with God, or perhaps her "inner God" or Holy Guardian Angel, who she is now finally understanding and listening to instinctively rather than going about life aimlessly pursuing material, worldly desires. It is also possible her newfound spiritual awakening has distanced her from her friends and family who think she has gone crazy and can no longer recognize or relate to her. She's telling the listener that "no one is going to drag you up to get into the light" meaning that every human must face reality and bear responsibility for their own destiny, perhaps even salvation, hence asking "where do you belong?" in this spiritual war.
