What you said, and what you meant,
Didn't ever seem to meet,
So negative in how you see,
But who could change the way you think.
Pessimistically, you have trained your mind to think.
Life is down always down because you chained yourself to misery.
So look up, joy in,
begin to deepen.
To think things humbly, to lock up pride and throw away key.
To think things humbly, to lock up pride and throw away key.

Others care for you, do you care for them as well?
I have learned that depression comes when our eyes are on ourselves.
Pessimistically you have trained your mind to think.
Life is down, always down because you chained yourself to misery.

So look up, joy in,
Begin to deepen.
To think things humbly, to lock up pride and throw away key.
To think things humbly, to lock up pride and throw away key.
Things always work out you know it's fine,
but somehow they get complex in our minds
I promise if we'd all serve humbly life would be all right,
I know you'll see.
To think things humbly, to lock up pride and throw away key.
To think things humbly, to lock up pride and throw away key.

    General CommentThis song is sick. I dunno what the lyrics mean i mean what the hell does lock up pride and throw away key mean? Well its really bad english if nothing. I think the entire song is about someone who isnt happy cuz hes just negative all the time. Hes goin through a tough time.

    General CommentTru dat about the negativity except there's a lot more to it. It's pretty much a bible lesson put to song. Live humbly, not pridefully or selfishly, and serve God. (I promise if we'd all serve humbly life would be all right)

    General CommentLiving pessimistically is such a horrible thing to do to oneself. It robs the life of the fun and joy. And I think Seth should be a psychiatrist because "...depression comes when our eyes are on ourselves" could not be more true.

    Lock up pride, selfishness, and pessimism and through away the key.
