"Blister" as written by Sergio Vega, Tom Capone, Walter Arthur Schreifels and Alan Cage....
Lately I can't breathe
Waiting they're chasing me
No one listens but I'm OK with it (don't touch me)

Only I wonder why
If only my hands weren't tied
The world's a blister
But I'm OK with it (don't trust me)

What if I was there
What if I was scared
I'm waiting for
They're at my door
But I'll be back again

Lonely, I'm wandering
Patrolling for enemies
No one listens but I'm OK with it

    General Commenti think "blister" is a song about war from a soldiers perspective. The person in this song is being forced into combat, but they feel as though they cannot protest and refuse to fight because it is their patriotic duty- "no one listens, but im ok with it." "patrolling for enemies" "im waited for, they're at my door". The soldier is basically divulging their inner thoughts on war and fighting, he is scared, cold, and lonely- but he promises to return "but i'll be back again"

    General CommentIt seems to me like it's about a person who went to war, and now came back a different man. The war had such a huge effect on his life that he can't live normally anymore. The first verse talks about him after comming back from war and everyone thinking he's crazy, so they put him in an Asylum. The doctors come to the door of his room. The second verse talks about when he was actually in the war. Pretty deep and awesome song.

    General Commentit seems like he knows the world to be unaccepting. He seems extremely confident but at the same time extremely unsure in himself, where he knows that he's different and is defying the conformity, yet is scared to take the step forward at that moment, but will eventually.
    It's like him vs. everyone else. if this makes sense...?

    General Commentfrom this song i see someone being chased down for a crime they did not do("Waiting, they're chasing me"). something they were framed for. the person was put in handcuffs ( "if only my hands werent tied") and they try to tell the truth but no one will listen and he sees he cant get out of this("No one listens but I'm ok with it ")

    General CommentI think that it's about a troubled person who is tryin to tell someone what's wrong with him. And no one listens, but he's okay because that's the world he's used to. Kinda like he's a teenager stuck with parents who treat him unfairly, and he can't get out, and he's trying his best to be with this person, but can' so the world is a blister. It's a story of a boy in love with a girl that he can't be with, due to his parents.

    General CommentTo me this song is about someone who is mentally disturbed.
    Lately I can't breathe
    Waiting, they're chasing me
    No one listens but I'm ok with it

    I think this means something like his disturbed thoughts are chasing him, and he trys to get help, but no one belives him.

    What if I was scared
    I'm waiting for...
    They're at my door
    But I'll be back again...
    The people at the door are psychitrists who came to take him away to get help.

    You wonder why I don't know
    You shout at me let me go

    This seams like people see him so sick, and they wonder why, but he cant explain it

    It ends optimistically because of the line "i'll be back again" He's gone to get help, and he knows he'll come back better.

    General CommentiLOVEyouTASHA's description of the song really makes the most sense to me, maybe because that's sorta what I feel like. I don't know, but there isn't a single OLP song I don't love.
