about

“Whispers” is first and foremost about some politicians’ tendencies to believe anything their advisers tell them. However it has a dual, subliminal meaning about listening to the echoes of our past and our conscience to stand and fight against oppression and corruption. The background vocals, or the “whispers” at the end of the song are meant to be same ghosts from the previous song, or the speaker’s conscience. At this point, the character wonders if he’s doing the right thing at all.

lyrics

The voices scream inside my mind like they’re alive
And so it seems that I am losing my mind
Now watch it burn
The faith that once we though could save all of us
I’m standing beside you
Yet I know, I am gone

Faint whispers
Calling out from far in the distance
Fear, it takes control of me

Now! Woah!
Sometimes I watch and wonder baby!
How? Woah!
Whispers in the night!

Then paralyzed
The man that listened and denied
I cannot believe in you
They told me not to

Faint whispers
Calling out from far in the distance

What happens to us
now? Woah!
Sometimes I stop and wonder, baby!
How? Woah!
Step inside and see who’s listening
Can’t you see I’m questioning why?
Can’t you hear them?
Those whispers in the night

The midnight hour has tolled.
Their day has ended.
We must come together to claim this new one.
Come with me my friends.
Seize the day before us, before it slips away.

Hear us
Now! Woah!
Sometimes I watch and wonder, baby!
How? Woah!
Look inside and see who’s watching
Can’t you see I’m questioning you?
Can’t you see them?
Those faces in the night

I feel them
Fading out into the distance
Fear, now falls away from me

Hope glistens
(You know)
Now I see what I have become
(That I have gone away)
Is it too late to change?
(It’s too late)
