Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone's here
Everyone's here
Everybody's watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next
What happens next

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension's right here
Tension's right here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened

Maybe redemption has stories to tell
Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell
Where can you run to escape from yourself?
Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna go?
Salvation is here

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened before

    People constantly judge us by our actions, how we dess, and the things we like and we can't get away from it. People wait to see what we do in every situation. How will we act? Many people hide things they don't want other people to see abou themselves out of feat of judgement and things like that. This song challenges us to be bold in who we are... Even when everything inside us screams for us to fit in... Like everyone else. This song is specifically telling us to be bold as christians (becasue switchfoot is a christian band.. Why else would they talk about salvatoin... Which ony jesus christ can bring through dying on the cross, and redemption... ) whe shouldn't hide that we are christians... And this song challenged us to tell people not be scared of this... But an important part of this is also sharing this gift with others... This is my interpertation.

    for one, i love this song. it's beautiful.
    i think it's about overcoming a difficulty. something that just knocked you down. you don't think you can get back up, so you don't try. but after someone who has faith in you, someone you care for, helps you and inspires you to get back up, you can. they're pushing you to get up, they're the ones always there for you.
