Don't hold back, 'cause you woke up in the morning
With initiative to move, so why make it harder?
Don't hold back, if you think about it
So many people do, be cool man, look smarter
Don't hold back, and you shouldn't even care
'Bout the losers in the air and their crooked stares
Don't hold back, 'cause there's a party over here
So you might as well be here where the people care

Don't hold back, world (You're holding back)
The time has come to
World (You're holding back)
The time has come to
World (You're holding back)
The time has come to
Galvanize
Come on, come on, come on with it

Don't hold back, if you think about it too much
You may stumble, trip up, fall on your face
Don't hold back, you think it's time you get up
Crunch time like a sit-up, pull monkey face
Don't hold back, put apprehension on the back burner
Let it sit, don't even get it lit
Don't hold back, get involved with the jam
Don't be a prick, hot chick be your fave

Don't hold back, world (You're holding back)
The time has come to
World (You're holding back)
The time has come to
World (You're holding back)
The time has come to
Galvanize
Come on with that, come on with it

World, the time has come to (Push the button)
World, the time has come to (Push the button)
World, the time has come to (Push the button)
World, my finger is on the button
My finger is on the button
My finger is on the button (Push the button)

The time has come to
Galvanize

    Really? I thought it was about covering steel with a layer of zinc to protect it. I guess it sorta makes more sense your way...

    This song is about being confident. It's pretty simple really. Don't worry about what other people think, make yourself hard to their insults, crooked stares... Everybody, the whole world.... make yourself hard to other people's unfair opinions... Galvanize yourself. Get up, go, move, and do it. Don't let other people keep you from action. From Dictionary.com: Galvanize: "To arouse to awareness or action; spur"

    About the meaning of "galvanize", I think that the two meanings are related. After all, that awareness is like covering your personality with a protector shield... it's like protecting yourself with awareness of yourself. I know it's a strange connection, but I think that both meaning reinforce each other.
