Give It All Lyrics

Break through the undertow, your hands I cant seem to find.

    This song is all about how in this world, people give there lives and everything they have, everything about them "give it all" to change the world, because that is truly the only thing that can ever change anything in this world.

    the song is about making the world a better place and make the dreams come true no matter how hard it is
    giving everything they've got
    because it means alot to them and other people

    When I first heard this song I thought it was talking about war, but then I watched the music video and I think it's about people who protest the things they think are wrong in the world.
