"See Right Through Me" as written by Christian Brais, Mathieu Joly, Matthew Dematteo, Dominic Viola and Francois Williamson....
At the wake of the storm
Many flurries of cold and furious thoughts
Hardly managed to drag me down
I heard it all from another room
Stolen words from mouths of fools
So what else is new still they can't keep their cool

I live to justify to give the reasons why
You won't see right through me
See right through me

All of this can't be real the poor state that I am in
Discomfort in my sleep may have brought me here
All the vows are broken,all the guilt I am wearin of bein here
Of being here so unprotected

I live to justify to give the reasons why
You won't see right through me,see right through me
I live to justify to say the reason why you'll may sense my fear
But you won't see right through me

Overhead closer up there
See the earth's fadin nations
Shuttles,spaceships,satellites
All gathered up there hypnotized
I may climb highest fences
Face the worthless consequences
Obscured,shattered is the sky
Another lesson learned in time
Many lacks of confidence
In hidden useless conversations

I live to justify to give the reasons why

You won't see right through me
I live to justify to say the reason why you'll may sense my fear
But you won't see right through me

    General CommentIt's true that this song is about someone who wants to be noticed and acknowledged by someone they have a crush on. However, there is a subtle issue of pride about it all. The singer would be able to take on many things with a brave heart:

    "At the wake of the storm
    Many flurries of cold and furious thoughts
    Hardly managed to drag me down"

    and

    "I may climb highest fences
    Face the worthless consequences
    Obscured,shattered is the sky
    Another lesson learned in time"

    But the object of the singer's affection makes him/her feel weak and nervous, whenever they are around, or even if they are just thinking about them while alone. This person is smitten:

    "All of this can’t be real the poor state that I am in
    Discomfort in my sleep may have brought me here
    All the vows are broken,all the guilt I am wearin of bein here
    Of being here so unprotected"

    and

    "Many lacks of confidence
    In hidden useless conversations"

    The singer has been mentally rehearsing what would happen if they had a chance to interact or get to know the object of their affection. But now that the effort is being made, he/she is going to do their best to make sure that their crush doesn't realize the full effect they have:

    "I live to justify to give the reasons why
    You won’t see right through me,see right through me
    I live to justify to say the reason why you’ll may sense my fear
    But you won’t see right through me"

    General CommentI cannot believe no one has commented on this song...Anyway To me I think this song is about someone Who is tired of being ignored, and it trying to figure out why he isnt being notice/acknowledged by someone
    Thats probably not what it really means, but that how I interperate it xD

    General CommentI could have sworn I heard this on the 30 Seconds To Mars myspace page... then I went back and they only have 3 songs up now O.o Innntresting.. Anyways, I love this song.
    I agree with Honalulu but it also seems to me that it's someone listening to someone fighting with someone else in the other room and he can hear it all. (His parents maybe?)

    General CommentFor some reason, this song reminds me of the band Thrice. The scope and depth of it, as well as the lyrics.

    General CommentI agree too that he's someone who wants to figure out why he isn't being noticed by others.
    But I think that he will show that he's better than many people,like a judge ("justify").
    "furious thoughts hardly managed" i think he will show that the people doesn't really think about their thoughts and what they're saying...
    he say also that it's a "poor state" and other negative things about the world.
    At the end i would say that he only wants to show us that very many stupid people are living in the world,and they hurt the world with their wars and they're like a danger to the society.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song from the album. Just about everyone has had these feelings before, so it's easy to relate to the song. I love Mobile!!

    In a way I think this might be a slightly happy song?
    to me, it seems that someone can understand her, they can see through her normal every day exterior and they know her for who she is...
    but shes maybe finding it hard to accept that shes so transparent to someone...
