We Can Make the World Stop – Lyrics

I’m hesitant to call this a post about the lyrics of The Glitch Mob‘s “We Can Make the World Stop”. But at the end of the day, even though there’s less than a dozen words in the entire song, they’re still lyrics.

The sample comes in right around the minute mark.

I was under the impression that the sample said, “Stand still, don’t stop, we can make the world stop”. However, YouTube commenter opsstriderx says that the lyric is actually “Stand still, pause clocks, we can make the world stop”. I’ve grabbed a screenshot since YouTube’s top comments never stay there for very long.

  1. I found this post while googling to find the out what the lyrics were. All I could get was “Stand still, __________, We can make the world stop” Understanding lyrics is not my strong suit. But after seeing this, “pause clocks” seems correct. It sounds accurate at every instance the lyric occurs. To my ears anyway… Thanks for posting!

  2. Thank you for your review!

    now, let me tell you this:
    they were last in TN July 18: I’m not sure asking “last week” was even possible.

    I can say, I am fully confident, although ‘pause clocks’ sounds good for you: the line SURE sounds like “do-n’t stop”

    Just listen to it: it fits!!

    1. They were in Nashville, TN on July 16 according to http://www.theglitchmob.com/updates/650

      I took the screenshot on July 19 when I made this post, and the comment was dated “2 days ago”. So if they posted that comment on the night of July 16, the timeline fits.

      As I said, “don’t stop” sounds like it would fit, but after listening to the song a dozen or so times, I think that “pause clocks” fits better. The second word definitely has an L sound to it.

      1. I think that “pause clocks” fits better. The second word definitely has an L sound to it. It also has an “S” on the end of the word also making “clocks” more likely IMO

  3. I’m pretty sure it’s “Stand still, balls drop, we can make the world stop” because if your balls haven’t yet they have after listening to this song
