The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus – Represent lyrics

A kid came up to me now just the other day
And asked me if I thought about what I would say
If everything came crashing down on top of me
How would I stay torn?

Will you represent?
Will you stand close?
Will they shame you?
Will they blame you?

It's funny how the words of a child can be
Simple, but the thought there is so meaningful
Makes me wonder what I would say to me
In the eyes of another

Will you represent?
Will you stand close?
Will they shame you?
Will they blame you?

There's a consequence
For the path you chose
Will they change you?

Will they make you who you are? [x3]

Let the free world ride your way
In these times of darkened days
Let the free world ride your way (let the free world ride your way)

You will represent
You'll stand close
They won't shame you
They won't change you

There's a consequence
For the path you chose
They can't change you
They can't make you who you are not.

    In my point of view, this song is all about taking risks, knowing the possibilities no matter what's the output, in the end, we should always
    represent and let them know who we really are, not worrying whether they shame us or not we should always be true to ourselves and to the people around us.
    It's a very inspiring song. It somehow relates to the quote, "Children may tell the most absurd things but they are not lies..." It's a great song.

    I also love this song sooo very much! And rja are really awesome guys I met them last year at 1 of their shows and I couldn't believe how awesomely nice they are. Also while they were playing I was in the front and duke saw me taking a pic of him so he posed for me on stage! It was sooo cool I cried soo much!
    Anyways. I'd say its just about being urslef and if you do then no1 can really hurt you or change you and you should always represent who you are.
