All The Right Moves Lyrics - OneRepublic

Review The Song (14)



All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we're going down
They've got
All the right moves in all the right faces
So yeah, we're going down

Let's paint the picture
Of the perfect place
They've got it better then when anyone's told ya
They'll be the King of Hearts, and your the Queen of Spades
Then we'll fight for you like we were your soldiers

I know we've got it good
But they've got it made
And the grass is getting greener each day
I know things are looking up, but soon they'll take us down
Before anybody's knowing our name

They've got...

All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we're going down
They've got
All the right moves in all the right faces
So yeah, we're going down

They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down
They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down

Do you think I'm special?
Do you think I'm nice?
Am I bright enough to shine in your spaces?
Between the noise you hear, and the sounds you like
Are we just sinking the ocean of faces?
It can't be possible... the rain can fall
Only when it's over our heads.
The sun is shining everyday, but it's far away.
Over the world that's dead.

They've got, they've got...

All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we're going down
They've got
All the right moves in all the right faces
So yeah, we're going down
[Repeat]

They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down
They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down

It don't matter what you see
I know I could never be
Someone that'll look like you.
It don't matter what you say
I know I could never fake
Someone that could sound like you.

All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we're going down
They've got
All the right moves in all the right faces
So yeah, we're going down
[Repeat]

They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down
They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down

Yeah, we're going down [repeat x2]

All the right moves... heeey
Yeah we're going down
They say
All the right moves... heeey
Yeah we're going down

great song | Reviewer: Joy(don't even try to google me) | 8/31/13

wow, I love this song. I wanted to bring to light that I love Ian and Sophia's meanings. I like them because I like a good story. Another round of applause for the song! BYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

all the right moves | Reviewer: Reilly | 11/28/11

I think the reason we are so sensitive to the whole Illuminati thing is because we know. Anything that hints at it or even isn't explained we label "Illuminati! Stay Away!" Not saying that it isn't, I'm just saying that not everything in the lime light is bad. Great song by the way.

Wow | Reviewer: Ian | 7/7/11

Okay, the Illuminati is the LAST thing I think about when I listen to this song. It probably is the real meaning of their writing, but to me I always think of the simple high school life: the King of Hearts just makes me think of all the popular people who like to stomp on the nerdy, geeky, and the disabled, meaning to or not. The Queen of Spades I think of as the one (sometimes more) popular girl(s) that are loved by everyone even though she hangs out with the lower-class.

The lower-class know that life is generally good and they should be glad for what they have, but they also know that the upper-class have everything more than them money/friend-wise. The LC starts to build up confidence but the UC just tears them down again.

(skipping down a bit to Do you think Im special?) this part I think of as talking about a popular person who's leading on some unsuspecting LC but then turns on them (sinking in the ocean of faces) and ruins their life. (raining over our heads) The happiness is with the UC, who appear to be the best thing ever, but they are not trully good, they are evil (over the world that's dead)

and the final part (not the refrain) I like to think is about an UC person who developes actual feelings for a LC (shoulda just left it at feelings...), but the LC person pushes him/her away because he/she is sicked of being toyed with and doesn't believe/doesn't know how to handle being loved by someone seen by the rest of the world as beautiful when he/she is considered hideous.

That's my lengthy interpretation.... a little less dark than the real one, but I like it that way.

the truth | Reviewer: only hears the truth | 10/16/10

I would just like to say to "another anonymous person" that im glad to see someone else that actually knows what this song means, unlike other people who just listen to music with a complete daze in their mind. This song has one meaning only and it is about the corruption of the illuminati in the music industry. This is what all music should be trying expose.

About the last meaning interpretation... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/26/10

Hey, I'm not ANYBODY'S puppet! I'm like a cat... I do what I want, when I want, (as long as it fits MY moral codes, which are COMPLETELY different than most people's...) and I don't take orders unless I want to... Except for taxes, but that's cause I'd rather keep my techno stuff and pay taxes than join the Amish... I'd die without technology... And I don't take shot from no one either... Someone gives me shit, I either prank them, punch 'em out, or cuss 'em out... Or come up with something absolutely brilliant to say in a low voice that really disses them and leaves no room for a comeback... But I am nobody's puppet, nor do I acknowledge those who I know are puppets as people... But as puppets... I, for one, would rather die than be a puppet.

only one even listened to this song!! | Reviewer: another Anonymous person | 7/13/10

Anonymous you are the only one that got it right!!! it is about the Illuminati. it speaks how they are pulling the strings and just when we think we have them figured out they change their faces. they are the king of hearts and we are the queen of spades, which is pointing out how they have us beat. and we are their puppets (soldiers). people must open their eyes and their ears more to see the real truth that's out there. I also how we are not going down but i am afraid we are too late. its hard to win a battle that has been going on before we where even around! to Sophie you are right on a few things look into the Illuminati.

revised lyrics | Reviewer: tk88 | 6/13/10

what i heard before seeing lyrics. I heard at work so I could only gauge -one of the few songs i could actually listen to there. Lyrics have more meaning this way so this is what I interpreted as..


All the right friends in all the wrong places

yeah we're goin down

All the wrong fools in all the right places

yeah we're goin down

everybody knows everybody knows where we're goin'..

makes more sense this way.. which then in turn completly disreguards the title..
anyhow, this is it reguardless...

Omg | Reviewer: Cory | 4/29/10

This song is so powerful in so many ways. I agree with everyone's meaning to this. In my eyes it just states "keep your friends close and enemies closer". Just always got to keep your eyes open to the people who you let have power in your life cause if you dont you will be fighting a losing battle. I LOVE THIS SONG !!! WE NEED MORE MUSIC LIKE THIS - View

Meaning | Reviewer: Sophie | 4/23/10

I think i know the meaning. i think this song is about corruption. It says that they have all the right moves in all the right places. That means that they control people. And I guess they are going down, because they will not get a chance to live, they will only live in fear. They talk about a perfect place that will never be, then the corrupted people are getting richer, and if you die, you won't be noticed. Then when they talk about the ocean of faces, it means that the innocent people will never be remembered if they die or it means that you can't tell who's corrupted or not. then they say that the sun is shining, it will never shine there, because of all the sadness of the people. Then when they talk about how no one will ever look like the person they are talking about, it means that no matter what, you will be unique.
In the video, it is a masquerade, and One Republic are the only people who don't have masks. So that means that they are proud to show that they are unique. You can't tell if the persons wearing the masks are good or bad.
Anyways, it's a sad but touching song.

daaang | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/13/10

this song reminds of that whole illuminati conspiracy, and it kinda creeps me out, very catchy song, but honestly listen to what he's saying, if you know what the illuminati is then you probually understand where im coming from but yeah, i hope were not going down if you know what i mean....

Fist time | Reviewer: Sophia | 1/22/10

ohmahgawd, | Reviewer: violeteyes | 1/11/10

this song is sooo amazing. i dont even know how to describe it, it has helped me through a verrryy hard time in my life and its helped me realize that i may think i have everything right in my relationship, but everyone can see that its not going to last. its just an amazing song and it means alot to me!

LOVE IT! | Reviewer: Lily | 12/23/09

OMG!I LOVE THIS SONG! The first time I read the lyrics, I almost cryed. Some songs just do that to me, don't ask me why. I think it's just the level of emotion gets through to me, no matter how corny it sounds. I can't get enough of it!
