When our time is up
When our lives are done
Will we say we've had our fun?

Will we make our mark this time?
Will we always say we tried?

Standing on the rooftops everybody scream your heart out
Standing on the rooftops everybody scream your heart out
Standing on the rooftops everybody scream your heart out
This is all we got now everybody scream your heart out

All the love I've met
I have no regrets
If it all ends now
I'm set

Will we make our mark this time?
Will we always say we tried?

Standing on the rooftops everybody scream your heart out
Standing on the rooftops everybody scream your heart out
Standing on the rooftops everybody scream your heart out
This is all we got now everybody scream your heart out

Standing on the rooftops, wait until the bomb drops
This is all we got now, scream until your heart stops
Never gonna regret, watching every sunset
Listen to your heart beat, all the love that we felt

Standing on the rooftops, wait until the bomb drops
This is all we got now, scream until your heart stops
Never gonna regret, watching every sunset
Listen to your heart beat, all the love that we felt

Scream your heart out
Scream your heart out
Scream your heart out
Scream your...

Standing on the rooftops everybody scream your heart out
Standing on the rooftops everybody scream your heart out
Standing on the rooftops everybody scream your heart out
This is all we got now everybody scream your...

    Well this song's full name id 'Rooftops (A Liberation Broadcast)', so It's actually about not letting anyone oppress you or get you down. When he says 'Standing on the rooftops everybody scream your heart out' he saying that when people try to get you down that you should tell them exactly what you think, and that you should broadcast it to the world from atop a rooftop if you have to. (not literally)

    i'll admit that this song really did help me. yesterday i got dumped by a guy that i've been liking and waiting for about 5 months to finaly get my chance with him, and i do finaly get my chance. then he says that i'm not his type. that's just so stupid to me. this song is great and it makes me feel better. i wanted to jump on my roof from my bedroom window and scream everything in my heart out to the whole world. that's how much i love this blue-eyed person.

    a few people said earlier that it's about making an impact, and i agree to some extent. i think it's more to do with taking the opportunity to do so, since there may not be any more to take.
