Is it just another day?

The song was released as a single on 26th September 2011. The day after the song was available for downloading. The music video was released on 3rd November the same year.

Nickelback is stating in the first verse, that there is “one more depending on a prayer”. Nickelback means that many people are living in desperate condition without any help. There is no doctor, no food, no house,  and no comfort. The only thing they can do is to pray. And you and I, just don’t care! For us it is just another day. There is war other pleaces, were more and more pepole are dying. We hear about it, but we do nothing to help. We do not like to remember it. We just “turn it off”!

In the course Nickelback is stressing that we need to stand together. Only then will we win.

Most people say they have fine, but they do not fine at all, and we now it. Actually we kind of like when people say they are “fine”, because then we do not need to get involved. Nickelback means that there is too much talking and too little doing.

I think the song at the end mens that we all can do more, and no one can stop us, because we all were borned with a conscience, and that is the heartbeat that will continue to beat just like this song will continue to play.

As a conclution I like to quote what an anonymous person wrote on 17th August 2012:

“The moral of this poem/song is to not be an apathetic douche.”

LYRICS – “When We Stand Together” by Nickelback

One more depending on a prayer
And we all look away
People pretending everywhere
It’s just another day
There’s bullets flying through the air
And they still carry on
We watch it happen over there
And then just turn it off

Hey, yeah, yeah, hey, yeah
We must stand together
Hey, yeah, yeah, hey, yeah
There’s no giving in
Hey, yeah, yeah, hey, yeah
Hand in hand forever
Hey, yeah, yeah, hey, yeah
That’s when we all win
Hey, yeah, yeah, hey, yeah
That’s, that’s, that’s when we all win
That’s, that’s, that’s when we all win

They tell us everything’s alright
And we just go along
How can we fall asleep at night
When something’s clearly wrong
When we could feed a starving world
With what we throw away
But all we serve are empty words
That always taste the same


The right thing to guide us
Is right here inside us
No one can divide us
When the light is nearly gone
But just like a heartbeat
The drumbeat carries on
And the drumbeat carries on
Just like a heart beat
