Passenger – Thunder lyrics

Hey I'm a fish out of water
A lamb to the slaughter
A moth to the flame
Hey I'm just a bird on a wire
Just a coal in the fire
Just a face and a name

Hey I go chasing thunder
Go dancing under
Go falling free
Hey I go running in circles
Like baby turtles
Down to the sea
Down to the sea

Hey I'm just rust to a handle
I'm breeze to a candle
I'm a choice you can't choose
Hey I'm just a little bit later
I'm yesterdays paper
I'm yesterdays news

Hey I go chasing thunder
Go dancing under
Go falling free
Hey I go running in circles
Like baby turtles
Down to the sea
Down to the sea

Morning sun keep on shining
Trees they're climbing
Tall and free
Searching but never finding
Rivers winding to the sea

    When I hear the song, i feel like it's general meaning is that death is a part of life, and it's "a choice you can't choose" so imbrace it, don't let the possibility of death shy you away from being courageous. Because if you shy away too much you miss out on some very valuable experiences. So go out and chase some thunder, go have fun, be silly for once! Go running in circles like a baby turtle, be a little ubsurd, because is no different at times. Besides what so you have to lose, your life? Well everyone does eventually, regardless of how they live it.

    Somewhere they don't belong or somewhere new to someone. As 'a fish out of water'. Means not where you are supposed to be, it is unusual or your the odd one out. The idiom of a fish out of water also means this.

    'a coal in the fire' suggests that he is wasted, common and like every one else is being used for the fire. 'Just a face and a name' also suggests this as he is nothing special, ordinary and unimportant .

    'I'm breeze to a candle ' could mean they could put people down but it could also mean they are stronger than someone else .

    'Trees they're climbing ' is a form of personification as trees can't climb.
