"Energy" as written by and Dave Richard/smith Bassett....
You make it up as you go along.
Why pretend that you're something that you're not?
I believe in you and always will.
Ever since you told me you're frill inside.
Emotional mood swings soon collide.
Now gather up all your tenacity.
Take my hand 'cause I'm settin' you free.

Who cares?
He's there to stare and
Tell you how to look.
I'm not even sure they know
You by name.
Who cares?
He's there to share what they
Think of you.
Everybody in there plays the
Same fucking games.

Alright, alright, alright,
You're such an energy.
Alright, alright, alright,
You're such an energy.
Let me see your fire,
Put your fist up in the air.

Alive,
That's how I want you to feel tonight.
Live,
You're only here once, so do it well.
Find your own way to rise up and
Give 'em hell.
There is no reason to wonder if you
Should go.
Tell them you can't be bottled,
So break your silence and tell them
Who you are.
'Cause they're all witness to a shooting star.

Who cares?
He's there to stare and
Tell you how to look.
I'm not even sure they know
You by name.
Who cares?
He's there to share what they
Think of you.
Everybody in there plays the
Same fucking games.

Alright, alright, alright,
You're such an energy.
Alright, alright, alright,
You're such an energy.
Let me see your fire,
Put your fist up in the air.

Tell me, are you feeling strong enough?
Tell me, 'cause all eyes are on you now.

Who cares?
He's there to stare and
Tell you how to look.
I'm not even sure they know
You by name.
Who cares?
He's there to share what they
Think of you.
Everybody in there plays the
Same fucking games.

Alright, alright, alright,
You're such an energy.
Alright, alright, alright,
You're such an energy.
Let me see your fire,
Put your fist up in the air.

You're such an energy.
Whoa, you're an energy.
Yeah, you're such an energy.

    My InterpretationIt's definitely telling people to life their own life while living in the moment. Don't listen to anyone else because they don't know who you truly are.

    Also, Brent's voice is simply amazing for this song.

    General CommentI think this song is about empowering yourself (as in inner monologue) or someone else to stop being afraid to be yourself, and if people don't let who you are then they can go to hell.

    I also think its a shot at the recording industry trying to take total control over the artist.

    Lyric CorrectionI think it's "Ever since you told me you're for real" and then "inside" is part of the next line.

    Also, I hear "Who cares who's there?" Not "Who cares? He's there"

    I might be wrong, that's just what I heard.

    My OpinionThis song says to me that you are in control of your life and you shouldn't let other people control your actions....I mean who cares what they say...we are all living in a world that isn't fair...well guess what life isn't fair.....

    General CommentLYRIC CORRECTION!!!!!!
    It's not "who cares he's there to stare you how to look I'm not even sure they know you by name. Who cares he's there share what they think of you everybody in there plays the same fucking games." It's actually "who cares who's there to stare and tell you how I look? I'm not even sure they know you by name. Who cares who's there to share what they think of you? Everybody here plays the same fucking games!"
