Hello, grab your bag and let's go.
More out of place than anything you know.
Like an opera at a disco.
When all you wanted was a rock show tonight.
These lights, are they hanging in the distance?
Did they glimmer for an instant?
When they're shining do you feel alright?
Know love, you were looking good tonight.

This is the last time.
Too long to list it.
Please don't you miss it.
Don't give up and let them hold you down when they tell you no.
We could burn this town.

Scream, waking from a bad dream.
Don't think anything is what it seems.
Can't you figure out what this means?
Don't sit back and keep your hands clean today.
We'll say maybe we can find a new way.
Or great another great cliche.
Storms are coming, why don't we play?
Instead of sitting, dancing in the rain today.

So long, they tried to tell you that you don't belong.
So, I guess we'll have to prove them wrong.
Pretty soon we'll hear them sing a long.
Ain't it funny that it's our song? So long.

    General CommentI think this song is about someone that people always tell what to do. The song is saying that they shouldnt be told what to do and to just get up and go. Trying to give self confidence and make them be who they want to be. If that makes any sense at all....

    General CommentThe feeling I get from this song is... Be yourself. It's also like, I don't know. The "you" in the story is a person who is different. "You" doesn't fit in. "They" are the people who are just like each other, and they make "you" feel like "you" needs to change. The person who is singing is encouraging "you" to just be who "you" is, because what's different about "you" makes "you" beautiful.

    Also, the lyrics are wrong. I think these are more correct:
    Hello, grab your bag and let's go.
    More out of place than anything you know.
    Like an opera at a disco.
    When all you wanted was a rock show tonight.
    These lights, are they hanging in the distance?
    Did they glimmer for an instant?
    When they're shining do you feel alright?
    Know love, you were looking good tonight.

    This is the last call.

    General CommentI love how this song progresses and sounds. You just picture a guy taking his love by the hand, running, and leading her around; very adventurous. Is there a connection between this song and all deliberate speed with how they're having problems with the town they're in and want to leave: "WE could burn this town" and "Sound off, we're going to LA"? Just a thought. I have no idea what the song could be about otherwise.
