We were running through the town
Our senses had been drowned
No place we hadn't been before

We learned to live and then
Our freedom came to an end
We have to break down this wall

To young to live a lie
Look into my eyes

Ready, set, go it's time to run
The sky is changing we are one
Together we can make it while the world is crashing down

Don't you turn around

We are looking back again
Our loneliness and pain
Never been so wide awake

Breathe slowly in and out
Somewhere behind the clouds
I can see the morning break

To young to live a lie
Look into my eyes

Ready, set, go it's time to run
The sky is changing we are one
Together we can make it while the world is crashing down

Don't you turn around

Leave it all behind you now
The final wall is breaking down
We are all it's all about
Nothing can stop us now

I promise you right know
I never let you down
Ready, set, go it's time to run
The sky is changing we are one
Together we can make it while the world is crashing down

Don't turn around

Ready, set, go it's time to run
The sky is changing we are one
Together we can make it while the world is crashing down
Don't you turn around

Don't you turn around
Don't you turn around

    The first stanza seems to imply these people are escaping from a place which appears ruled by a dictator or someone who has kept these peole from seeing what the workd has to offer.

    The sky is chainging may be some type of governement upheaval. The narrator cries "don't you turn around, Go! Go!"

    While under control, they didn't know what the outside world had to offer, but once the world is experienced, "our lonliness and pain" could not be more evident.

    They're able to see beyond the control they've been under. "Somewhere behind the clouds I can see the morning break."

    It may be a group pushing toward revolution. "Leave it all behind you now, The final wall is breaking down, We are all it's all about, Nothing can stop us now"

    Once they've tasted freedom they don't want to go back. "Don't you tuen around."

    I think this song is about confessing who you are and finding the people who stand beside you when you do
