Hold on for a second
If words can be weapons,
Then what I say can effect it.
They're not just words on a record.

And I can choose to respect it,
Or choose to infect it.
But once that hits the water,
It's too late to be selective.

If one voice is enough,
To make sleeping giants wake up.
To make armies put their hands up.
And watch whole nations stand up.

It's one belief, one spark,
One faith and one restart.
And we can reboot the whole chart,
Before it all falls apart

So stand up, shout it out.
We can put 'em in the air if you like it loud.
We only got one shot, so let's make it count.
It's a take down, nobody can stop us now.

Stand up, shout it out.
Sing it loud, so the world can't drown us out.
And before we depart let's leave a mark.
'Cuz light shines brighter in the dark.

When we scream,
Our lips don't make a sound.
We march with feet on solid ground.
We walk, where no one wants to go,
On this untraveled road.

So hold on for a moment,
If we're not scared of opponents,
Then with what we have we can own it.
We just plant the seed and keep groanin'.

And when that light shines in the mornin',
They'll still be wakin' up yawnin'.
We'll be smilin' like we expected.
Sweet victory, one method.

If one voice is enough,
To make sleeping giants wake up.
To make armies put their hands up.
And watch whole nations stand up.

It's one belief, one spark,
One faith and one restart.
And we can reboot the whole chart,
Before it all falls apart

So stand up, shout it out.
We can put 'em in the air if you like it loud.
We only got one shot, so let's make it count.
It's a take down, nobody can stop us now.

Stand up, shout it out.
Sing it loud, so the world can't drown us out.
And before we depart let's leave a mark.
'Cuz light shines brighter in the dark.

When we scream,
Our lips don't make a sound.
We march with feet on solid ground.
We walk, where no one wants to go,
On this untraveled road.


When we scream,
Our lips don't make a sound.
We march with feet on solid ground.
We walk, where no one wants to go,
On this untraveled road.

And I can choose to respect it,
Or choose to infect it.
But once that hits the water,
It's too late to be selective.

If one voice is enough,
To make sleeping giants wake up.
To make armies put their hands up.
And watch whole nations stand up.

It's one belief one spark,
One faith and one restart.
And we can reboot the whole chart,
Before it all falls apart.

When we scream,
Our lips don't make a sound.
We march with feet on solid ground.
We walk, where no one wants to go,
On this untraveled road.

When we scream,
Our lips don't make a sound.
We march with feet on solid ground.
We walk, where no one wants to go,
On this untraveled road.
On this untraveled road.
On this untraveled road.

    My InterpretationThis song can be summed up easily.
    One person CAN change the world.

    My InterpretationThis song has a double meaning to me.

    The verses are about how words are powerful weapons, and can change all of history for the good or bad. (Hitler comes to mind when it says "...and watch whole nations stand up.")

    The second meaning, in the chorus, is that Christianity is like an "untraveled road." Nobody listens to us ("when we scream, our lips don't make a sound."), and there are few people who truly follow Christ. The Bible even talks about how the Christian walk is the "long, narrow road." It even says, "Wide is the road that leads to destruction (hell) and many find it, but narrow is the road that leads to eternal life (heaven)."
