Here lies the old myth,
breaking the mold with,
truth to take away the trickery.
Twenty centuries of progress,
suffer slowly as we regress,
losing headway to ourselves.

Behold the covers, the sisters, the mothers,
the daughters, and spouses, on the magazines.
Truth has been abused.
How could she fill those shoes?
Propaganda meant to fuel their schemes.

She is strong but never silent,
sure of where her truth/strength comes from,
one day, one girl army will overcome.

Treading the current, issues at hand,
Shifting, we sway, from justice and then back again.
What we once broke, He has made right,
lifting her up, giving birth to Jesus Christ.

    Yes, you do, shattered dream, but be careful. I know that goes against the songs message, but even you will have a time for silence.

    this song is about the virgin mary who gave birth to Jesus. it uses it as a metaphor when it talks about one girl army.

    I don't believe it's about Mary... more, it uses her to support the general message of the worth and important of women in God's plans.

    Yep, lessismore it talks how Mary fought her way in a world of Men, and gave birth to Jesus, that was not Joseph's son either

    I see it comparing today things like what we would feel in Mary's shoes... wondering how it would all work out. and i also think of the 1 girl in the band when i hear this song! It's an awesome song! I love it and our last mission trip we played this countless amount of times and filled it in with 8 girl army (that's how many of us were on the trip, and all girls...) to be strong when faced with unexpected situations!! FIF rocks!

Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."

The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
