"Represent" as written by and Ronnie Winter....
A kid came up to me now just the other day
And asked me if I thought about what I would say
If everything came crashing down on top of me
How would I stay torn?

Will you represent?
Will you stand close?
Will they shame you?
Will they blame you?

It's funny how the words of a child can be
Simple, but the thought there is so meaningful
Makes me wonder what I would say to me
In the eyes of another

Will you represent?
Who you stand for?
Will they shame you?
Will they blame you?

There's a consequence
For the path you chose
Will they change you?

Will they make you who you are not? [x3]

Let the free world ride your way
In these times of darkened days
Let the free will light your way

You will represent
You'll stand close
They won't shame you
They won't change you

There's a consequence
For the path you chose
They can't change you
They can't make you who you are not.

    General CommentI absolutely love how RJA has put inspiration into their song meanings. In my opinion, I believe this song is about a person who is questioning his belief in God, and if he knows if he will Represent God and stand up for His name at crucial and painful times in his life. I love this song, and I admire that Red Jumpsuit was not afraid to add this to their album.

    General CommentI think this song is just about standing up for what you believe in. Standing up for your morals and not conforming to others.
    This song is definitely my favorite song off the new album

    General CommentThis song really FOR ME. Talks about my relationship with God and really makes me know i have to Represent and be nice and kind to others at my very best. It's so funny how many songs help you. We represent the sky boys! When you make a mistake you make a mistake for all of us!


    Much love.

    General Commenti am glad this song is the type of music it is, it didnt resort to screaming or intensity, instead that is felt through winter's voice and in the lyrics, amazing song, and the next single, should be played on alt/pop stations alike.

    General CommentIt's NOT about god. I'm so sick of people adding religious factors into a non-religious singing band. It's really fucking obnoxious. Like Rush5 said, the song really is about not conforming for other people and being your own person, not picking friends that will change your life in a bad way. Think about it, it makes a lot more sense.
