Synopsis
: Everyone has a voice so use it and change the world. Starts off with hiding in the dark and not expressing what you think, but moves into learning to speak out and not be afraid of what people think about you.
Themes
[Speak up and be heard]
[Everyone is capable]
"You've got the words to change a nation
But you're biting your tongue

You've spent a life time stuck in silence
Afraid you'll say something wrong

If no one ever hears it how we gonna learn your song?"
Quotes
"You've got a heart as loud as lions
So why let your voice be tamed?

Maybe we're a little different
There's no need to be ashamed

You've got the light to fight the shadows
So stop hiding it away"
Diction
"I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream 'til the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers,
I'm not afraid
They can read all about it
Read all about it, oh"
"Making sure that we're remembered, yeah
Cause we all matter too
If the truth has been forbidden
Then we're breaking all the rules"
"Let's get the TV and the radio
To play our tune again
It's 'bout time we got some airplay of our version of events
There's no need to be afraid
I will sing with you my friend"
"Yeah, we're all wonderful, wonderful people
So when did we all get so fearful?
Now we're finally finding our voices
So take a chance, come help me sing this"
