I'll run and hide under my bed
You're calling my name from outside my door
But i'm not ready yet
For a revolution to start in me

Cause i'm just scared of losing control
I'm terrified of who i'll become with you
I'm just scared
The world hates you and it's gonna hate me too

A cry for help rings in your ear
(I'm calling your name from inside this hole)
That i've dug myself into
(It's so wrong)
My self-centered prayers
(As if you)
Don't care for anyone but me
(Give me a day)
That's all it takes
(For me to turn my back on you)

Cause i'm just scared of losing control
I'm terrified of who i'll become with you
I'm just scared
The world hates you and it's gonna hate me too

The whole world hates us
The whole world hates our song
But still we sing
But still we sing along

Here I am
A wary heart and trembling hands
waiting for the words to leave your lips
So here I am
A wary heart and trembling hands
Waiting for the words to leave your lips
(Here I am with trembling hands
This could be the hardest step that i'll take)

Here i am
A wary heart and trembling hands
Waiting for the words to leave your lips
(Here I am with trembling hands
This could be the hardest step that i'll take)

The whole world hates us
The whole world hates our song
But still we sing
But still we sing along
(I'm just scared of losing control
I'm terrified of who i'll become with you
I'm just scared
The world hates you and it's gonna hate me too)

    General CommentI Love This Song... Possibly worried about what others will think of him if he gets with a girl that he likes but noone else does... Possibly she's a bitch to everyone.

    General Commentof course its about Christians...

    im Catholic and ive gone through this many times.....

    i feel that the world hates Catholics but i stand up for my faith and i still 'sing' to God


    even though it does scare me that i might not follow Him or be terrified of who i will become without Him in my life...

    General Commentyeah, i actually talked to Dan of This Providence at a concert in Appleton, WI, he's the singer and guitarist if you didn't know. well i asked him what this meant to him and he told me that it was about how he began to give his life to God. we're hesitant to do so at first cuz we're scared of what others might think but instead we shouldn't worry about that but press on forward. just keep singing no matter what. if you guys have ever heard him talk, he's got an australian accent, it's so awesome. haha

    General CommentYou guys are way off base here. If you know anything about Dan Young, the lead singer, you know that he was a closet homosexual before joining the band. He said performing live "freed him" and gave him the strength to come out.

    This song is about coming out of the closet as a gay. With lyrics "I'm terrified of who i'll become with you" and "The whole world hates us" you will see how obvious this is. Just ask him about it next time you see a show, I did!
