You got to leave your seat you gotta get up upon your feet
You're gonna move ya to the rhythm till you never can stop
We got the power we got the music and you bet that you can use it
We're gonna take rock-bottom we're gonna take it to the top

Put yourself in our hands so our voices can be heard
And together we will take on all the world
Put yourself in our hands so our voices can be heard
And together we will take on all the world

Move a little nearer you know you gotta follow your leaders
As we need you like you need us for sure
We're gonna drive you we're gonna ride you we're gonna get right inside you
And if you wanna keep going just shout out for more!

Put yourself in our hands so our voices can be heard
And together we will take on all the world
Put yourself in our hands so our voices can be heard
And together we will take on all the world

Sing your song we'll listen to you
Sing your song the spotlights are you

Put yourself in our hands so our voices can be heard
And together we will take on all the world
Put yourself in our hands so our voices can be heard
And together we will take on all the world

Put yourself in our hands so our voices can be heard
And together we will take on all the world
Put yourself in our hands so our voices can be heard
And together we will take on all the world

    It's about standing up for what you believe in no matter right. And it's also about how everyone should stick together.

    this is one of my favorite songs by Judas Priest. it's about not sucking at the feet of your adversaries and not caving in, but instead taking them on, and sticking with your team. so i can really relate to this. perhaps that's why i love the song

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
