"Silhouettes" as written by Tim Bergling, Salem Al Fakir and Arash Pournouri....
Press play, fast forward
Non stop we have the beaten path before us
It was all there, in plain sight
Come on people, we have all seen the sunshine
We will never get back to
To the old school
To the old rounds, it's all about the newfound
We are the newborn, the one [...]
(We are here to stay)

We've come a long way since that day
And we will never look back, at the faded silhouette
We've come a long way since that day
And we will never look back, at the faded silhouette
We've come a long way since that day
And we will never look back, at the faded silhouette

We've come a long way since that day
And when you never look back
(Never look [2x])

Press play, fast forward
Non stop we have the beaten path before us
It was all there, in plain sight
Come on people, we have all seen the sunshine
We will never get back to
To the old school
To the old rounds, it's all about the newfound
We are the newborn, the one [...]
(We are here to stay)

We've come a long way since that day
And we will never look back, at the faded silhouette
We've come a long way since that day
And we will never look back, at the faded silhouette
We've come a long way since that day
And we will never look back, at the faded silhouette

We've come a long way since that day
And we will never look back
(Never look [2x])

    Song MeaningHaven't used this site in a while.

    I think the meaning is obvious about the new generation moving forward.

    The video is about a guy who became a girl. It shows how he used to be, when he underwent surgery, and how she is now, and she does not look back at her old silhouette (You can see her hide the guy pictures off the wall, cuz she doesn't care about the old "her" or "him" rather)

    Striking parallel to how the generation is becoming more and more open minded and moving "forward' in some kind of direction.

    My InterpretationLove the beat to this song. Can't believe no ones commented on it yet.
    I get the feeling that this song is about how society used to be so differant (and better), and our new generation has wrecked it. In the line "we are the future and here to stay", I think that explains that there's no returning to how society used to be.
    Just a few thoughts I had. :)

    General CommentThe lyrics make a lot more sense after you see the music video.

    My InterpretationHey, when the girl woke up (while the main character was waiting in the hospital), the guy on the TV cut a cucumber in half. It's hard to show details in a short clip without narration, so I think it can be an association to cutting penis (so, in general, we see that the girl is shown and understands that (his bf's) penis is to be removed).
    Does that mean that the main character had his genitals removed? And that's why the girl leaving?
    Otherwise, I don't see any other point in the medical surgery thing.

    Or maybe I took it too seriously and the girl wasn't a girlfriend, just random hook-up? But this way, why are we shown suspense scenes going back and forth between the guy coming home and the girl lying around with another guy? And more, the final scene where the guy drops his bag on the bed, it's revealed that the girl is in another house and the suspense is finished. If it was a random chick, the director wouldn't put much meaning in that last scene.
