"See Who I Am" as written by Sharon J. Den Adel, Martinus J. E. Martijn Spierenburg and Robert Westerholt....
Is it true what they say,
Are we too blind to find a way?
Fear of the unknown clouds our hearts today.
Come into my world,
See trough my eyes.
Try to understand,
Don't want to lose what we have.

We've been dreaming
But who can deny,
It's the best way of living
Between the truth and the lies.

See who I am,
Break through the surface.
Reach for my hand,
Let's show them that we can
Free our minds and find a way.
The world is in our hands,
This is not the end.

Fear is withering the soul
At the point of no return.
We must be the change
We wish to see.
I'll come into your world,
See trough your eyes.
I'll try to understand,
Before we lose what we have.

We just can't stop believing
Because we have to try.
We can rise above
Their truth and their lies.

See who I am,
Break through the surface.
Reach for my hand,
Let's show them that we can
Free our minds and find a way.
The world is in our hands,
This is not the end.

I hear their silence
Preaching my blame.
Will our strength remain
If their power reigns?

See who I am,
Break through the surface.
Reach for my hand,
Let's show them that we can
Free our minds and find a way.
The world is in our hands,
This is not the end.

    General Commentwhat an eleoquent analogy but i agree
    "We can rise above
    Their truth and their lies"

    General CommentYou know. Originally I thought this song was about two people who were in love, willing to face the world against all odds, together. Now. While I still believe it is about two people who are in love, I see it a little differently. They love each other, but one is kind of pushy, and is trying to get the other to say and do things they're not ready for. Eventually, the pushy one realizes it, but not before losing the one they love. It may be for a short period of time, it may be for forever. Point being, at least the pushy one can learn from it and not repeat the mistake with someone else.

    General CommentI don't think it is about a relationship between two people in particular, rather I think it is talking about tolerance, ie, people of different racial, religious, etc backgrounds seeing past the steriotypes ("Between the truth and the lies"; "Come into my/your world,
    See through my/your eyes") and see them as the people they really are. To do the only thing we can to fight intolerance - remove it from our own hearts and be an example to the world: We must be the change, We wish to see.
    I could be wrong, but thats how I interpet it, and think its a powerful message and a great song.

    General Commenti think its not about a relationship but about your place in society. to break loose of the mindless mass. so its more about people in general

    the album title the silent force refers to the mindless masses of people but who could make a difference if they really tried to, the individual is small and weak but far from powerless.

    so most songs are about that subject, stand my ground is kind of similar

    General CommentI'm with Mhorton and Inthemist. This song really speaks to me, as I'm from a very racially charged town. The pressure that comes to bear if you're in a bi-racial relationship is unbelieveable and it always destroyed the relationship and damaged the people involved - "Preaching my blame, Will our strength remain, If their power reigns?" This song reminds me of my generations struggle with the older generations to change things the status quo.

    So I guess you could say, I think this is about people struggling to make their ideals reality in a world they see as wrong, and how they shouldn't lose those ideals and become what they're fighting:

    "Let’s show them that we can
    Free our minds and find a way
    The world is in our hands
    This is not the end"
