I can't hold back
I can't relax
I can't let go
I can't say no
Can't take the time
Can't make you mine
Can't know for sure
Can't find the cure

And what does this all mean?
And after all I've seen

I'm gonna prove it to the world
I'm gonna prove it to the world
I'm gonna prove it to the world
So here I go

Can't ascertain
I can't refrain
I can't decline
I won't fall behind
I won't sit down
I won't leave town
I can't deny
And I won't cry

And what does this all mean?
And after all I've seen

I'm gonna prove it to the world
I'm gonna prove it to the world
I'm gonna prove it to the world
So here I go

    This song really hit me. What am I living for? I'm gonna prove it to the world? For me this song means that the writer doesn't have any time he's gotta do what's right, not take time for himself and what he wants.Something is obviously buging him. He can't deny the one above so he's gonna prove it to the world. Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double minded James 4:7-8 Another good song to check out would have to be Life and Love and Why, by Switchfoot. Have a great day.

Zombie
Cranberries, The
"Zombie" is about the ethno-political conflict in Ireland. This is obvious if you know anything of the singer (Dolores O'Riordan)'s Irish heritage and understood the "1916" Easter Rising reference. "Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken - Another mother's breaking Heart is taking over" Laments the Warrington bomb attacks in which two children were fatally injured on March 23rd, 1993. Twelve year old Tim Parry was taken off life support with permission from his mother after five days in the hospital, virtually braindead. "But you see it's not me It's not my family" References how people who are not directly involved with the violence feel about it. They are "zombies" without sympathy who refuse to take action while others suffer.

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.
