"Halfway There" as written by and Principe/mcilrath/barnes/mohney....
Is this the point where we give up?
Is this the point where we give in?
Is this the point where we turn ourselves in?

Is this the time to ask questions?
Is this the time to seek answers?
Is this the time to throw it all in?

When enough is enough that's when you know that you're halfway there
When enough is enough that's when you know that you're halfway there
You're halfway there
That's when you know that you're halfway there

This is the point where we stand up
This is the point where we take back
The things that are keeping us from being free

When enough is enough that's when you know that you're halfway there
When enough is enough that's when you know that you're halfway there
That's when you know that you're halfway there

Your voice the airwaves sent you prayed my life would end,
The wasted time I spent ashamed I called you friend,
Give me one reason, I need a reason, one reason

    General CommentI think the song is about being pushed around. It's about the moment you realize something has to be done, that you need to stand up for yourself, then you're already halfway there.. You've won half the battle already..

    General CommentI think that many people here have it backwards. Rather than being about the first half being the hardest, or being pushed around, it is about pushing yourself.

    The main theme of the song is indomitable spirit. The ability to carry on beyond your normal limits. Basicaly, when your body screams to quit, and you don't see any way that you can carry on, you find that extra little bit and push yourself that extra distance.

    Everyone has this ability, but it is damned hard to exercise. If you feel that it is time to quit, then you are probably only halfway to your actual breaking point. It is the people who can make use of that second half, and go that extra distance that can really do something in this world.

    To me, this meaning was very clear very quickly. I have lived by these words for a long time now, long before I had heard this song.

    I also like the links with Give It All there. If you wanted to, you could see this one as someone deciding not to give up and to push themselfs further, but not knowing their direction. They can see what is wrong, but not how to address it. In Give It All, their path and drive are both clear, and their lifes have direction and meaning.

    General CommentConcur.
    It's a simple fact-
    deciding something has to be done is half of the job. Doing it is the other half.
    This sends a message that people have to inform themselves and make their decisions to do something and not watch the world go by.

    General CommentThis is a great song...helped me get through IB exams. I agree with the concept of being pushed around, the drive that someone has whenn the realise that they must make change takes them the other half way.

    General CommentFor the majority of the song, it seems as though the opposition is directed towards government or authority, but the last few lines are clearly directed at a personal friend. It just doesn't seem right to me. It makes me think I've been looking at this song the wrong way or that I've missed something.

    General CommentI think this song is about changing everything wrong with the world. When you have had enough of everything wrong you are only halfway there, the second half is to make a difference and change things.
