"Cling And Clatter" as written by Ron John Aniello and Jason Wade....
Too many voices, It won't take long
Which one's right, which one's wrong
Yours is most likely to be misunderstood
Screaming in tongues

On the top of my lungs
'Til I find you, 'til you found me
Somehow I always knew that you would
And I am contemplating matters

All this cling and clatter
In my head, and what you said
Is ringing, ringing faster
And it's all good if you would

Stop the world from making sense
And if I could just realize
It doesn't really matter
It doesn't really matter

It doesn't really matter
If I could touch
The sound of silence now
You know I would if I knew how

To make these intentions
Come around
I'm hearing without listening
And believing every word

You are not saying
Speaking without a sound
Trapped inside
Of these four walls

Walking brainless muppet dolls
Mushroom face
Beneath the tangles
Bleeding silhouette inside

Dancing like an angel would

    General CommentNobody posted for this song?! That's insane. This is one of the songs on my "Mood Picker-Upper" CD.

    I think this song is about a person who is very confused and just burried in all this "cling and clatter". He tries to explain himself, but so is everyone else, so his voice gets burried. He wants out of this confusion, but he's trapped. When someone said something that probably hurt him, it keeps ringing inside his head and haunting him. Basically, inside his head, it's just complete cling and clatter.

    General CommentJason explained this song once... I don't remember his exact words, but the basic idea was that it's about a relationship he had with some girl, when they were on that stage between friends and lover,s not really sure which road they are taking.

    General Commentmy favorite line of the song is "Bleeding silhouette inside
    Dancing like an angel would".... it helps me to describe myself... the bleeding silhouette relates to me bc i cut and it helps the pain inside... and the dancing like an angel part relates to me bc i am a dancer i wish i could be better... i wish i could dance like the angels would...

    General CommentJasons explanation of this song winterfairy mate was
    It's about trying to make your way through the "cling and clatter" - all the noise and emotional distractions - to get to what you really need. It's about sorting through the conflicting voices inside and outside your head.

    arr god, he's sooo deep what an inspiration, u gotta love him

    General CommentLifehouse were at their peak on 'No Name Face'. This song rocks! Unfortunately, Stanley Climbfall is nowhere near as good. Anyone else agree?

    General CommentWow… When I read other comments, my interpretation of the song seems to be way off than others. But. Here’s mine and maybe somebody else can see where I’m going with it…

    The music to this song is really misleading I think. It seems so upbeat and catchy. You think it would be a happier song. But if you really pick apart the lyrics… This song has quite more of a serious nature about it. For me at least

    I think this song is about the people in the world. I love the lines
    “Walking brainless muppet dolls
    Mushroom face
    Beneath the tangles
    Bleeding silhouette inside”

    I think if you put the lyrics into perspective, you see it ‘s more about how people want to mold you and change you into what they want. They don’t listen to you. They just try to bring you down.
    “Too many voices, It won't take long
    Which one's right, which one's wrong
    Yours is most likely to be misunderstood”

    Yes, I relate to this song in a way that is about being confused with life and the real world and trying hard to find your voice, but for some reason just can't seem to.

    Don’t get me wrong, I still love the song though. ^^

    General CommentTo me, this song is a bit of what everyone has been saying.

    The first part is talking about how there's so many voices telling you what to do, and what to think, and influencing you and your actions, and just trying to find comfort or an escape from it all (Screaming in tongues on the top of my lungs/'Til i find you, 'Til you found me/Somehow i always knew that you
    would")

    Then the chorus is talking about just trying to figure out where you stand and just trying to get your voice out of all the things that everyone is saying. After all, your opinion and voice is the only thing that matters.

    The next verse is him saying if he could, he would shut out all the voices and thoughts in his head. And it's like he knows that everyone is thinking or saying to him, even if they don't verbally say it to him.

    Then, I agree with SkylarMarie11 on the "muppet dolls" verse. It's everyone trying to get you to think or believe one thing and inside you're "bleeding" just trying to find your own voice.

    Personally, I don't think this song gets all the credit it deserves. It's a great song about just finding your voice between all the other forces in your life.
