  • Jennie from Ansonia, CtThis is one of my favorite songs to sing along to. Nemo is also the name of the little fish in the Disney Pixar movie Finding Nemo.
  • Amelia from Cedar Park, TxThis is an AMAZING song! I love it so much! :)
  • Tsuki from Esco, CaJust to add in, Nemo is also the name of the the captain of the submarine the Nautilus in Jules Verne's novel, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.
  • Margaret from Missoula, MtThis song seems to be asking for redemption - a plea for light and hope and goodness, after having experienced so much corruption and darkness. After searching for a nobler purpose, however, we are told that we are 'Nemo' - as Winston above said, 'nobody' or 'unknown'. It's about the human condition - the quest for a purpose in life.
