"Silver Speak" as written by and Simon Frank Grenehed Christian Thell Lindskog....
They spoke their minds
As I stood there smiling
This brain understood their arguments
So I just stood there
Keep on smiling
Cause it's not on me they're throwing their darts
So why are they heading this way for my heart?

How come I'm the one bleeding
When you're the one being cut
And every stabbing word about you stings

An allergic reaction towards all of this
Have to respond, although without an answer back
And I throw everything back into their face
Hear my own stupid sentences and I have lost track

You have strength beyond words
And You have communication beyond my words

This battle is not mine
I try to forget
Every time they spit Your name out on the sidewalk
And I will let the candle shine inside me without any regret
But where's Your voice in all my talk

I'm an ant trying to protect my dinosaur friend

    General CommentPretty sure this song is about Christian (the writer) standing up for his faith. And how when they talk crap about God, he gets hurt. "Cause it's not on me they're throwing their darts/ So why are they heading this way for my heart?"

    He realises that all he has to do is do his best, and God will work out the rest.

    Thats what I see in this song.

    General CommentI took it exactly the same way... "'cause it's not on me they're throwing their darts. so why are they heading this way for my heart?" is him saying that it's not him they're criticizing and beating up on, but he feels the hurt all the same. "every stabbing word about you stings..." "have to respond, although without an answer back" "hear my own stupid sentences and I have lost track" I know exactly how that feels. every time someone says something "disproving" god or what not, I don't know what to say to them. and I hate that I don't have the words to defend the one thing that truly matters in my life... and it's so frustrating when you can't make someone listen, because every answer you come up with in defense is so DUMB! even to your own ears. "this battle is not mine" is him saying that he shouldn't feel the need to argue with the people, because it's not his battle to win, it's between them and god ultimately, so he shouldn't feel guilty about not changing their minds... "and I will let the candle shine inside me without any regret." I just like that line, because it's him saying they haven't made him doubt himself, and he's still proud to let his light shine inside. "but where's your voice in all my talk?" yeah... "I am an ant trying to protect my dinosaur friend" puts a lot of that in perspective.... ha ha ha. I just love that line.... I just love the visual that puts in my head. a tiny little ant telling these other guys "hey, leave my friend alone!" in his little pip-squeak voice, and his friend's this big huge gigantic dinosaur standing there. it's gotta be cute and sincere to the "dinosaur", and I'm sure it makes him feel good, but at the same time, he knows he doesn't need protection from some tiny little ants that want to pick on him.... yeah. maybe it's just me. anywho... I really do love how this song so relates to my life. and blindside.... no words could ever express. :)

    General Commentoh, and I forgot to add the little line to my psychoticness.... if the dinosaur really wanted to, he could just stomp the crud out of the little ants... ;)

    General Commentcouldnt have said it better myself dyinginnewbrunswick. the ant and dinasour line was especially meaning to me as well. so often i feel like i've done Him a favor by sticking up for Him. what a joke! we all need to remember how great He is compared to us sometimes. i also loved the fact that Christian said, despite him seeming to fail this time, he would still speak out, still let his "candle shine." very inspiring song.

    General CommentI totally agree with what everyone else says!!!
    I love this song!
    Especially the part when Christian screams "How come I'm the one bleeding when You're the one being cut"
