"Thunder" as written by and Michael David Rosenberg....
Hey I’m a fish out of water
A lamb to the slaughter
A moth to the flame
Hey I’m just a bird on a wire
Just a coal in the fire
Just a face and a name

Hey I go chasing thunder
Go dancing under
Go falling free
Hey I go running in circles
Like baby turtles
Down to the sea
Down to the sea
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

Hey I’m just rust to a handle
I’m breeze to a candle
I’m a choice you can’t choose
Hey I’m just a little bit later
I’m yesterdays paper
I’m yesterdays news

Hey I go chasing thunder
Go dancing under
Go falling free
Hey I go running in circles
Like baby turtles
Down to the sea
Down to the sea
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

Morning sun keep on shining
Trees they’re climbing
Tall and free
Searching but never finding
Rivers winding to the sea
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

    General CommentSomewhere they don't belong or somewhere new to someone. As 'a fish out of water'. Means not where you are supposed to be , it is unusual or your the odd one out. The idiom of a fish out of water also means this.

    'A coal in the fire' suggests that he is wasted ,common and like every one else is being used for the fire. 'Just a face and a name' also suggests this as he is nothing special , ordinary and unimportant

    'I'm breeze to a candle ' could mean they could put people down but it could also mean they are stronger than someone else

    'Trees they're climbing ' is a form of personification as trees can't climb
