Sometimes, our minds can make us believe and teach us to see
That there's nothing there, we fool ourselves knowing we're wrong
When we follow along
We've misunderstood what we meant for good

There is one thing you've been meaning
To talk about but don't know what to say
And that one thing that you're feeling
Chances are that someone feels the same way

As the one thing you've been meaning
To bury and then hope it goes away
And that one thing that you're feeling
Doesn't mean you have to go away

I don't know if you realize that you're not alone
Can you let me know?
But there is someone out there for you that is going through the same as you


Why can't we see that there's nothing that we'll have to face?
Or something will happen, where we can't turn back
And we will be stuck right here on our own

    General CommentI think this song is about something someone's gone through that they avoid talking about because they are trying to believe that it didn't happen. The song is trying to say that, it's okay to talk about things and that someone out there can relate and understand you. So it's okay to feel the way you do, it's okay to talk abou it. Beautiful song, my favorite by Pillar.

    General CommentI agree with both of the statements above but I just want to add to what they have already said, but the way I see it and sorta see it in on my own life is how sometimes see we ourselves as worthless. How we'd rather keep to ourselves, deal with our issues than talk about it to someone else. I wish I could explain it better, but my minds pretty screwy today. So all I can end this with is how are there only so little comments on this song? This song is so freaking insane and awesome. Definitely racks up on my favourites.

    My InterpretationTo me, this song is about how denial can isolate us from others, and eventually from ourselves. It's about how we sometimes are so determined to ignore the truth-- even though we know that we are wrong-- that we pretend that whatever the issue at question is doesn't exist. This causes us to put up a wall between ourselves and others, who most likely feel the same way, and then we lose part of ourselves. Ultimately, this song is reassurance that if we own up to the problem, then we will be surprised to learn that others relate and that it's okay.
