"On Your Way" as written by and Jenkins Lavalle....
you were sewn to the ground, so you cut the wires of lead.
you swim against the tide, yet you drowned in the sky.
you whispered to make a sound, and you crawled to reach the ground.
you held your head up high, yet you duck beneath the clouds.
you are on your way.

this one was locked, closed down and refrained.
you tore through the glass, no one could understand.
as you pushed them all away, you made them all return.
this on was overcome, yet you lost in the end.
you are on your way.

    General CommentThis song could be considered a tale of someone realizing the greatness that they can achieve, but it won't ever be appreciated by the rest of the world, as shown by the second part of the song lyrics.

    The first part has whoever the song is about realizing that they were meant for greatness, but they are afraid and hide anything they have to show for.

    But the second part shows the character seeing something that has been there the entire time, maybe something that was great, made by another person, but it was ignored or shunned, and finally forgotten in plain sight. It unlocked something within the character, and he or she did everything they could to get to whatever was hidden in plain sight. Meanwhile, everyone gathers around, wondering what the hell this person is going on about. The character, not wanting to show anything of value and wanting to keep this greatness to themself, got them all to go away.

    Now, finally, the character got to what they were looking for and feel like they have achieved something until he or she realizes that they still the only ones to realize whatever its greatness is.

    Or I could just be reading into all of this WAY too much.
