Hiding in back and never make a sound
If you don't speak your thoughts
They can't be turned around
You lead a targeted youth
Would only talk to certain few
Can't find the courage to leave your shell yet
Torn apart and...

Camouflaged in the background and holding things deep
Never showing your true self to the kids you meet
Finding shade in imagination
One more day forgotten to the world

Finding short term courage in a flask
Another wasted day you're never getting back

    General Commentfirst to post, my thoughts on it's meaning (since that's what we're supposed to do) it's about someone who doesn't stand out or speak up because they're too afraid and they aren't getting anywhere in life because of it. my favorite line? -if you don't speak your thoughts, they can't be turned around-

    General Commentyeah well this song almost got my ass kicked......let me explain....

    Well it all started last week in enlish class and we had to take this test the district requires. Our teacher said 'okay class we're going to take a test today and tommorrow i'll allow a free day. Well these really fucking preppy american eagledout kids were like why do we have to take it today why not tomorrow why why blah blah blah blah...so they went on for about a good 15 minutes while i was trying to concentrate on my test .Finally me(the quite kid that nevers says shit) stood up thinking about Allister and said can you please shut up and do the fucking test you're gonna have to do it eventually. The class got quite and i just at down. I never got stared down so much in my life. Thanks alister for giving me the power to acually say something and run like hell to lunch.

    General Commenti prefer this guys voice over the other guys voice, and this song is something special, about a boy/girl who doesnt have the strength to speak up or standup for themselves. allsiter are the saviours of pop/punk
