The song’s meaning is based off the plotline of the book “1984” by George Orwell. The reason that the song is named “2018” is to convey the idea that some of the societal norms present in “1984” are actually present in today’s society to some degree. The lyrics are from the perspective of the book’s main character, and they’re referring to the every day struggles he faced.

Lyrics

What gives us light can also make us blind

Give me a penny for your thoughts swear I'll repay you
In words that speak the truth
What they keep from you
I know you better than you think I do
I know you better than you think I do
You tell yourself lies so that you can feel better
But I see through them
I know you better
There's a fake smile on your face every day
Here's a penny for my thoughts
I don't need to be repaid

I know you know what we let 'em get away with
Never show any love blow us a kiss
Tear us apart yeah they never even gave a shit
Wake up don't let your eyes shut for they'll steal them stand up

Keep me tongue tied with all the lies
Help my thoughts hide and save my life
And when it's my turn to say goodbye
Grab all the naysayers tell them to look at me now

What the fuck

They don't want you to love without a feeling of guilt
Coursing through your veins a thought you should've killed
But we will rebel
And fuck away what they've instilled
A penny for your thoughts
How about a penny for your love
How low we'll go
To get what we have lost
We'll get
What we
Have lost

Keep me tongue tied with all the lies
Help my thoughts hide and save my life
And when it's my turn to say goodbye
Grab all the naysayers tell them to look at me now

What gives us light can also make us blind
What gives us light can also make us blind
What gives us light can also make us blind
What gives us light can also make us blind
