"Scare Away the Dark" as written by and Michael David Rosenberg....
Well, sing, sing at the top of your voice
Love without fear in your heart
Feel, feel like you still have a choice
If we all light up we can scare away the dark

We wish our weekdays away
Spend our weekends in bed
Drink ourselves stupid
And work ourselves dead
And all just because that's what mom and dad said we should do

We should run through the forests
We should swim in the streams
We should laugh, we should cry
We should love, we should dream
We should stare at the stars and not just the screens
You should hear what I'm saying and know what it means

To sing, sing at the top of your voice
Love without fear in your heart
Feel, feel like you still have a choice
If we all light up we can scare away the dark

Well, we wish we were happier, thinner and fitter
We wish we weren't losers and liars and quitters
We want something more not just nasty and bitter
We want something real not just hashtags and Twitter

It's the meaning of life and it's streamed live on YouTube
But I bet Gangnam Style will still get more views
We're scared of drowning, flying and shooters
But we're all slowly dying in front of fucking computers

So sing, sing at the top of your voice
Oh, love without fear in your heart
Can you feel, feel like you still have a choice
If we all light up we can scare away the dark

And oh, oh, oh oh, oh, oh no
Oh, oh, oh oh, oh, oh no
Oh, oh, oh oh, oh, oh no
Sing it out now
Oh, oh, oh oh, oh, oh no
Sing it out now
Oh, oh, oh oh, oh, oh no
Sing it out now
Oh, oh, oh oh, oh, oh no

Well sing, sing at the top of your voice
Love without fear in your heart
Feel, feel like you still have a choice
If we all light up we can scare away the dark

    My InterpretationLove this song, its message is great!!! Speaks about the cynicism of society nowadays and what's expected of us in society, "work ourselves dead, just because that's what mom and dad said".

    It also shows what society is telling us all the time through tv, ads, etc, that we are not perfect to society, this constant buzz around us telling us that we are ugly, fat,etc. "Well, we wish we were happier, thinner and fitter".

    This song as shows what we are lacking in society nowadays, to be happy, free to express our emotions, to do what we want,
    "We should run through the forests
    We should swim in the streams
    We should laugh, we should cry
    We should love, we should dream"

    Unfortunately, he's saying that people nowadays are attached to their screens, not experiencing the human emotions of wonder and discover, laughter, etc.
    We're scared of drowning, flying and shooters
    But we're all slowly dying in front of fucking computer"

    The underlying message is that if we all come together and be happy, express ourselves, we can beat the cynicism of today's society, the fear and anguish, if we learn to love everyone, including ourselves, "we can scare away the dark".
