"Phenomenon" as written by Charles Burchette, Frederick Reeves and Eddie Floyd....
If you like us, calling all riders
Roll up beside us, no place to hide us
All freedom fighters, let's unite us
Switch on your nitrous and let's go

Destination for navigation
Man up your stations, feel the sensation
Surround invasion with communication
Move quick, we might avoid contamination

Down, here comes the sound
Everyone pound your feet
To this phenomenon
Now let's make it loud
Let me show 'em all how
You move to this phenomenon

Whoa, open your soul
Maybe lose control
Inside of this phenomenon
Just let yourself go
And let everyone know
You move to this phenomenon

Don't let these spiders crawl up beside us
They want to bite us, inject the virus
Raise up your lighters, praise to the righteous
Need you to guide us, get prepared to go

If you like us, calling all riders
Roll up beside us, no place to hide us
All freedom fighters, let's unite us
Switch on your nitrous and let's go

Down, here comes the sound
Everyone pound your feet
To this phenomenon
Now let's make it loud
And show 'em all how
You move to this phenomenon

Whoa, open your soul
Maybe lose control
Inside of this phenomenon
Just let yourself go
And let everyone know
You move to this phenomenon

Can't take it anymore
Shake until we move the floor
What are we waiting for? Let's go
Tired of being ordinary
Don't care if there's people staring
I know you said you'd carry me on

I'm not invisible like you
Next time things get a little messed up
I'll shine but I'll never be seen through
I'm fine, just trying to wake the rest up

Down, here comes the sound
Everyone pound your feet
To this phenomenon
Now let's make it loud
And we'll show 'em all how
You move to this phenomenon

Whoa, open your soul
Maybe lose control
Inside of this phenomenon
Just let yourself go
And let everyone know
You move to this phenomenon

You move to this phenomenon
You move to this phenomenon

    General Comment“If you're like us, calling all riders,
    Roll up beside us, no place to hide us,
    All freedom fighters, let's unite us,
    Switch on your nitrous, and..let's..go”

    This verse is calling out Christians (the riders) and that we shouldn’t be afraid of our Faith in Jesus (no place to hide us). The Freedom Fighters are Christians, fighting to save the world from eternal damnation

    ”Destination, for navigation,
    Man up ya stations, feel the sensation,
    Surround invasion, with communication,
    Move quick, we might, avoid contamination”

    Here Trevor is saying telling us to lead people to Christ (destination for navigation). If we communicate the Gospels we are attacking the invasion, however, we need to act fast other wise we will be infected with the secular world.

    ”Down, here comes the sound,
    Everyone pound, your feet, to this phenomenon,
    Now, let's make it loud,
    Let's show 'em all how, you move to this phenomenon
    Roll! Open you soul, maybe lose control,
    inside of this phenomenon,
    Just, let yourself go,
    and let everyone know,
    you move to this phenomenon“

    Don’t be afraid of your faith, stand up, let people know what you believe, make some sound while you are at it.

    ”Don't let these spiders, crawl up beside us,
    They want to bite us, and inject the virus
    Raise up your lighters, praise to the righteous,
    We need you to guide us,
    get..prepared..to..go
    If you're like us, calling all riders,
    All freedom fighters, let's unite us,
    Switch on your nitrous, and..let's..go”

    The spiders are Satan and his demons and temptations, and want to draw us away from our cause. Stand up for your faith and unite.

    “Can't take it anymore,
    Shake until we move the floor,
    What are we waiting for?
    Let's go!
    I'm tired of bein' ordinary,
    Don't care if there's people staring,
    I'll rely on Your strength to carry me on
    I'm not invisible like you,
    next time things get a little messed up,
    I'll shine, but I'll never be see through,
    I'm fine, just tryin' to wake the rest up”

    Here, Trevor is asking, WHAT are we waiting for, he’s tired of being ordinary (blending in with the world) and doesn’t mind if people look at him strange because of his faith in Jesus and will rely on Him (God) to carry him (Trevor) through troubled times; he also says he won’t be invisible like some Christians (I like to call them pseudo-Christians/poser Christians) and is fine trying to get people to believe the Gospel Message.

    That or I am reading too far into a really good song.

    General CommentWell, to me, this song is trying to tell people not to be afraid to stand up for what you believe. It shouldn't matter to others what it is that you like, but only matter to you.

    General CommentThe song meaning was right before HP its JUST about standing out from the crowd and standing up for what you believe in. There is nothing to do with Christians and their "god"
    The line "freedom fighters" would DEFINANTLY not refer to forcing your religion on others!

    General CommentThis band is Christian. They sing about God. So, yeah, their songs are about God and Christianity. Some of you people need to stop replying to Christian bands' songs and claiming it isn't about God. If you don't believe this is so, just give an opinion. Not an arguement and harsh words.

    General CommentI think this song is about standing up for the Lord and their sending out a call to all other christians to step forth. "Let's go! I'm
    tired of being ordinary, don't care if there's people staring, I'll rely on your strength to
    carry me on. I'm not invisible like you, next time things get a little messed up, I'll shine,
    but I'll never be see through. I'm fine just tryin to wake the rest up."

    General CommentThis song is basically telling us to be proud of our belief and to "let everyone know,
    you move to this phenomenon."
