I took a ride with a one-way ticket
I aimed my arrow at the mark & hit it
We all need to be somebody

Been broken down, but not defeated
I kept on punching back till I succeeded
We all need to be somebody, now

We stop at nothing, even climb barbed-wire
We struck a match and set the world on fire
And if we tried, we couldn't get much higher, now

Everyone around the world, raise your glasses, raise your glasses
Standing proud cause we're the champions, raise your glasses, raise your glasses

We pushed it all, beyond the limit
We took our chances & we jumped right in it

Now I believe, in strength in numbers
Went into battle with a force of thunder
We all need to be somebody, now

I want to shout it out with all my power
I want to scream it from the highest tower
I want to celebrate our finest hour, now

Everyone around the world, raise your glasses, raise your glasses
Standing proud cause we're the champions, raise your glasses, raise your glasses

We stop at nothing, even climb barbed-wire
We struck a match & set the world on fire
And if we tried, we couldn't get much higher, now

Oh, you gotta give it your all
Oh, you gotta know what you're after
And oh, we'll make it over the wall together

I took a ride with a one way ticket
I shot my arrow at the mark & hit it
When all the others only talked, I did it
Kept pushing everything beyond the limit
You play the game, you gotta play to win it

Holiday
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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
