Sing it loud and clear. We're the voices. This is who we are. We're the voices. We are not a scene but come bearing.
Songs of freedom like Marley to the masses. We are all diseased and tearing. We see the people dying daily and it grabs us. We are not all clean but come wearing. Fronts and facades that raise the odds of you and I serving other gods. Which leads to destruction, selah.
We are all obsessed with comparing one another to each other and it scares us. One at a time we need to find our identity. Too many times we see the fog in our clarity. Can you hear me loud and clear?

Ah, this is who we are. We are the voices of the generation. We make choices that mold a nation. Putting down all frustation. And sing it loud and clear. On every station. We are the voices. We are the voices.

Voices aren't scared to sit in a chair and share anywhere what the heart can't compare. We need to learn how to dear and bear. Burdens of another a voice that has a choice to care. We need the voice to sing our remedy. You and I like sounds of a symphony. What's my identity? Who am I? Just a kid who seeks love from the Most High.

Ah, this is who we are. We are the voices of the generation. We make choices that mold a nation. Putting down all frustation. And sing it loud and clear. On every station. We are the voices. We are the voices.

We all need a reformation. We the people need to serve salvation. From the voice that shadders lands. Your voice is in demand. We're the voices. Sing it loud and clear. We're the voices. This is who we are. You'll never shut us up, you'll never shut us up. You'll never shut us down. We are the voices.

    This song is a calling for Christians, especially the youth, to check their focus. When we are our own focus, we follow false gods and don't show God to our world. Each and every Christian needs to know that their choices effect everyone around them and if Christ is not the center of their lives, then we can't shape our world. However, when united in Christ, we have the power to redefine our nation and are unstoppable, b/c our power is from God.

Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.

Somewhere Only We Know
Per the FAQ on Keane's website, Keane's drummer Richard Hughes, stated the following: "We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..." With the nostalgic sentiment and the overall tone of the song, I think Keane is attempting to express a Portuguese term known as 'saudade', which does not have a direct English translation but roughly means "that which we remember because it is gone."
