She's searching for someone to save her from this place
to rescue her from what she can't escape
there's not much hope left she's thrown it all away
been knocked down so much she can't get up
she cries out in pain

take me away further away
outside of this
i'm falling apart looking for what's
outside of this

her make up smeared around as tears run down her face
the mask she had is soon to be erased
she's broken and let down with nowhere left to turn
asking herself what's worth living for
she cries out again

take me away further away
outside of this
i'm falling apart looking for what's
outside of this

the candle is burning out the light flickers away
you reach out your hand to save her from this place

    General CommentSo, this band reminds me a bit too much of the Used, and another band combined.
    But live, they're quite amazing.

    General CommentFirst of all, this band is my alltime favorite. I love them sooo much. I saw them live, and I even got to feel the singer, Ryan Zimmerman up. He has a nice ass, lol Anyway.

    This song is about a gril who's mad some bad decisions in life. She has hit rock bottom, and doesn't know how to get out of it. Hence the name, "Outside of This"

    Shes been broken down, abused, and can't get her life back together. She finally crashed. She is searching for a person who will see behind her mask, someone who can pick her up, love her, and fix this mess she has made.

    She finally gives up completely, and her mask has been thrown out. Someone reaches out, feels her pain, and trys to help her.

    The rest is unknown, as the song ends.
