Some Nights -- WHAT DO YOU STAND FOR? TIME TO DECIDE
snip

I kept hearing a song by Fun on the radio called “Some nights”. It had all these elements, plus it sounded rousing and seemed apropos of the zeitgeist of our nation in some way. So I went online to see the video.

This song asks the question “What do I stand for?” against the backdrop of the War of Northern Aggression (more widely known as the American Civil War). In this video, the singer is depicted as a soldier for the Federal Government.
The singer seems to be ambivalent about the cause, and questions his involvement, but, like all young people, is driven by his passions and the notion of a “cause”. The song has a distinct martial feeling in the rat-tat-tat of the drumming.

However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task
the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. Acts 20:24

"This man really is the Savior of the world!" John 4:42

Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him;
and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen.

I saw Promised Land and Lincoln.

If it is said to be a good movie I will go.
 Quoting: WindyMind


Yeah, that song bothers me.

I've heard it while flipping through the radio
While I drive. It's catchy in a youthful, stylish
Way that after the 10th time you hear it you
Want to throw up.

But what really bothers me is the dude sounds
Like a pussy. I always tell him to grow some balls
Before turning the channel.

It just sounds like an anthem for an indecisive, whiny,
Confused, morally bankrupt generation.

Here's more:

Armored truck patrolling community after break-ins

using heavy machinery normally used for SWAT situations to deal with a spate of burglaries and home invasions.

Fulton County police are patrolling the streets near Estonian Drive in an armored vehicle that looks like something you'd see during war, said south Fulton County resident John Hunter.

"It's a bit much. It's not Afghanistan," Hunter said.

If you listen to the CD each song has elements of the last, to really get it you have to listen to the who CD.


OR, for a quicker look, just listen to "Carry On Carry On," this is the "match" if you will, to "Some Nights"

So in Some Nights, we have this tortored, conflicted soul, in Carry On Carry On we have this person who just pushes through his conflicted life.

I don't know. But it could be fire that causes destruction to this world.

Re: Some Nights -- WHAT DO YOU STAND FOR? TIME TO DECIDE
We live in a world where nobody likes to take a stand. Politicians like to ride the fence on issues, they will say things like: "I am personally opposed to abortion, but I don't want to inflict my views on others" ... translation -- they are for it while being against it!

Sadly we live in a time when too many religious leaders are doing the same thing; they won't take stands on issues of sin for fear of offending society and being chastised by the press as old fashion and out of style. They are afraid they will be rejected if they take a stand and speak the truth.

Our young people are being told that nothing anymore is really wrong, just be careful not to hurt anyone and everything is ok ... teachers and schools avoid taking stands on any issue, they try and be morally neutral on everything.

When it comes to world crisis, we stay out of them unless it is in our national interest; we take stands only when we benefit from them – not necessarily because of moral absolutes.

How different were men in years past, even great scientists of the past were not afraid to take stands; men like Sir Isaac Newton -- he was a brilliant mathematician, a great physicist, he gave us the invention of the telescope, his studies in gravitation opened the understanding of great forces in the universe. Yet, when asked as an old man, “What do you consider your greatest discovery?” he responded humbly, “I have made two important discoveries in life, the one, I know I am a very great sinner; the other, I know Jesus is even a greater Savior!” This was taking a stand!

"THE COURAGE TO STAND LIKE ELIJAH!"

Here's a live version just to show him off

Tell me where am I supposed to go? And who am I supposed to believe. If only you knew what I knew. Then you could see just what I see. [Chorus:] So I grab my bags and go, as far away as I can go. Cause everything ain't what I used to know. And I try to hide, but I just can't hide no more. There's nothing worse than feeling like a ghost. You say I look fine, if only you knew what was on my mind. You'd see a whole different side, I couldn't show you even if I tried. I must have got lost in time when I found out I was only free to be, where ever I want to be. Some say I'm out of sight, how ironic and that we're all so blind. If you could open up your eyes, you could see what I couldn't describe. And then, you'd see the signs, and then your soul would be set free, and then you'd be released. [Chorus:] So I grab my bags and go, as far away as I can go. Cause everything ain't what I used to know. And I try to hide, but I just can't hide no more. There's nothing worse than feeling like a ghost. Tell me where am I supposed to go. And who am I supposed to believe. If only you knew what I knew. Then you could see. (Hey) [Chorus:] So I grab my bags and go, as far away as I can go. Cause everything ain't what I used to know. And I try to hide, but I just can't hide no more. There's nothing worse than feeling like a ghost. And I'm terrified, like I've seen a UFO. Cause everything ain't what I used to know. And I try to hide, but I just can't hide no more.
