Edge of the Earth Lyrics


You know enough to know the way
Six billion people just one name (I found)
I found tomorrow in today
Apocalyptic and insane, my dreams will never change
You wanna be the one in control
You wanna be the one who's alive
You wanna be the one...

    This song has a deeper meaning than you think. It's actually right there in front of you if you just read the words litterally. That's all I can say. You have to figure it out on your own.

    this song is about those who endeavors fame and attention which will eventually happen cause its not a matter luck its just a matter of time but we all know what fame and greed can do to an individual.

    I personally really love this song. Whenever I hear it, I picture a person standing on the edge of a cliff, with an amazing scenery and the wind blowing in his/her face.
    I believe this song is about wanting to be free and be unique. I also think it is about taking risks and not always playing in on the safe side.

    To be free: I believe he feels as though he is kept prisonner, and his only wish, or dream, is to escape. "You wanna be the one in control. You wanna be the one who's alive. You wanna be the one who's old.", referring to the person keeping him prisoner. "My dreams will never change", referring to his dream of freedom and escape.

    To be unique:"Six billion people just one name", meaning we are all the same.

    Taking risks: The bridge and the chorus talks about taking risks - "Stand out on the edge of the earth. Dive into the center of fate. Walk right in the sight of a gun. Look into the new future's face."

    This song is about not giving a fuck about anything
    and to stand out,
    to be yourself
