"Paper Tigers" as written by and Joakim Frans Ahlund....
It's in the atmosphere we breathe tonight
It's in the people that we meet
And in your eyes
Just like every other fool out there
We all think we're so unique
Such special freaks

It's in every single one of us
Every single one of us
Looking for a second chance
Hoping for a second shot
Every single one of us
Every single one of us

I see the world like through a looking glass
I see the people walk right by
By by
Like paper tigers roaming in the street
They stare right through me when we meet

It's in every single one of us
Every single one of us
Looking for a second cause
Hoping for a second shot
Every single one of us
Every single one of us

    General CommentThis song is all about Hope.

    We are all Paper Tigers, despite strong outward appearances we are all in fact fragile on the inside, but we all have hope for something better.

    General CommentI basically agree with SavageMadrox.

    It's good to see people commenting on Caesars songs because they're good, rather than just because they were featured on an iPod advertisement.

    General CommentThomYorkeGuyGarvey92, I agree. But if it weren't for the iPod commercial, I never would have heard of Caesars. It's great when people explore the whole discography though.

    This song instantly chills me out. The tune is amazing, and the lyrics speak to me about how everyone feels like freaks inside, we all have our problems and we try not to show them. But we can all connect with other people through our weaknesses and problems.
