"Fly From The Inside" as written by Brent Smith and Bob Marlette....
Is the weight of the world on my shoulders?
Is the weight of the world on my shoulders?
On my shoulders
All alone I pierce the chain
And all in all the sting remains
And dying eyes consume me now
The voice inside screams out loud

I am focused on what I am after
The key to the next open chapter

Cause I found a way to steal the sun from the sky
Long live that day that I decided to fly from the inside

Every day a new deception
Pick your scene and take direction
And all in all I search to connect
But I don't wear a mask and I have no regrets

I am focused on what I am after
The key to the next open chapter

Cause I found a way to steal the sun from the sky
Long live that day that I decided to fly from the inside

I can't escape the pain
I can't control the rage
Sometimes I think that I'm gonna go insane
I'm not against what's right
I'm not for what's wrong
I'm just making my way and I'm gone

Is the weight of the world on my shoulders?

Cause I found a way to steal the sun from the sky
Long live that day that I decided to fly from the inside

Cause I found a way to steal the sun from the sky
Long live that day that I decided to fly from the inside

    General CommentI believe that this song says that he is stressed out obviously by " Here's the weight of the world on my shoulders" but I think he is tired of all of his responsibilities because of the line "Long Live that day that I decided to fly from the inside" but all of that stress is getting him extremely aggitated because of the verse near the end. Please tell me if anyone disagrees, I would like to hear everyones views.

    General CommentThis is one of the best songs I have heard in a long time. That said here is my thought. I believe that the person to a leap of faith, against all odds and is happy with his decision to fly from the inside. He broke out of his mold and is determined to make it. Sometimes he feels the strain of it all, but he wouldn't have it any other way. I have no regrets and I'm just making my way and I'm gone. Sounds like a good way to live life.

    Long live that day that I decided to fly from the inside..
    I this song is about someone who's weighed down with the stress of life but has found a way to overcome and focus on what he needs to do w/o worrying about what other ppl are gonna think and the consequences of what he does. Anyone else agree??

    General CommentI was fortunate enough to see Shinedown at the Rock 101 Skyshow this year in New Hampshire and before they played this song Brent said something like, "This is a song for all of you out there that have had fuckers say that you can't accomplish your dreams." It was pretty cool and they were great.

    General Commenti saw him talking about it on this one place: so here is the official meaning: he said it was about, when he was making the album he needed a good song or something, so he had to make a song quickly or something like that, so he had to fly from the inside, get the song from inside of him, in a speed like flying, so its about getting something you need from inside of you..well i dont think thats entirely correct but thats more or less what i remember, if i find it again ill update
