The Greatest Lyrics

Uh-oh, running out of breath, but I
Oh, I, I got stamina
Uh-oh, running now, I close my eyes
Well, oh, I got stamina
And uh-oh, I see another mountain to climb
But I, I, I got stamina
Uh-oh, I need another love to be mine
Cause I,...

    So, we know that it's a tribute song for the victims of the Pulse Orlando shooting. Maybe there's a deeper meaning. When the music started, Maddie broke everyone out of the so-called prison. Maybe it symbolizes the victims breaking out of their shell, accepting who they are. Later on, Maddie encourages them to not give up. Afterwards, they all started to dance. It could symbolize the victims being okay with their identity. At the end of the video, the victims fall to the floor. Behind them, there are "bullet holes" in the wall behind them. So what if they have fallen? They were "the greatest" in the eyes of other people, despite their differences.

    The song is about never giving up."Uh-oh, running out of breath, but I
    Oh, I, I got stamina
    Uh-oh, running now, I close my eyes
    Well, oh, I got stamina
    And uh-oh, I see another mountain to climb
    But I, I, I got stamina"

    I think the songs about Christ and his 2nd coming, his life and oppression throughout, and how he will never give up because he is the greatest! And the children are his, they belong to him, always have.its the song of Christ the lamb of God! It is amazing and it has deep meaning, personal, intimate and real. The children are orphans, slaves, they are the only ones who belong to the kingdom, and as the world sinks deeper into a sleep of there spiritual blindness, the children are always in tune, alive and awake, they are waiting to be saved, rescued, loved and taken to the new earth, because in his eyes they are the greatest! They are spotless and DEVINE! sincerely,M.A.P.S the Christ <3 + dedicated to my baby, my jewel, my amber...xoxo
