Red Lights - Tiësto


The Experience:  We all want to be free, not conditioned by anyone or anything. We'll never let them change us. So let's break right out of these guilded cages. There ain't no reason to stay. We could just run them red lights...

Official Video: Two friends (they seem to be just friends though it is a little unclear) set off on a road trip doing and wearing (or not wearing) whatever impulse dictates, whether kosher or perhaps not quite. The intention is to express this rebellion and "liberation" from inhibitions (we can just run those red lights). Their itinerary ends at a concert with Tiësto.

The meaning of Tiësto's Red Lights: We all want to be free, and that's the desire this song expresses, but what is freedom? We all want to be who we are, but who are we? Red Lights seems to indicate that freedom is going with impulse, and running red lights when needed. The question is, which red lights really inhibit my freedom, and which are there to protect it? If we were to give into impulse without thinking twice, would we be free, or become the slave of passing whim and blind passion?

Ask yourself: Are my actions truly free, or have I become a slave to something or someone? 


LYRICS:


Blacked out,
Everything's faded on your love,
I'm already wasted, so close
That I can taste it now, now

So let's break right out of these guilded cages
We're going to make it now
Don't ever turn around
Don't ever turn around

Nobody else needs to know
Where we might go
We could just run them red lights
We could just run them red lights

There ain't no reason to stay
We'll be light years away
We could just run them red lights
We could just run them red lights

We could just run them red lights

White lights, flirt in the darkness
This road leads where your heart is
These signs, something we can't ignore no

We can't back down
We'll never let them change us
We're going to make it now
What are we waiting for
What are we waiting for

Nobody else needs to know
Where we might go
We could just run them red lights
We could just run them red lights

There ain't no reason to stay
We'll be light years away

We could just run them red lights
We could just run them red lights

We could just run them red lights
We could just run them red lights
We could just run them red lights
We could just run them red lights
We could just run them red lights
