I'm scared to look down
I've never been so high
And I can't look up with a closing mind
I'm scared to be touched
I don't like the feel
It's way too close, way too real

Inside it's raining, it never lets up
I know I'm crazy
Crazy enough to know that I will find a way to make this all go away

I'm scared to be me because I look like you
I don't want to be somebody I never knew
I'm scared to go out
I'm so far in
I hear it's nice, but I've never been

Inside it's raining, it never lets up
I know I'm crazy
Crazy enough to know that I will find a way to make this all go away

I found my only out, so just forget about talking me down
I'll put this fire out and stop this burning

Inside it's raining, it never lets up
I know I'm crazy
Crazy enough to know that I will find a way to make this all go away

Inside it's raining, it never lets up
I know I'm crazy
Crazy enough to know that I will find a way to make this all go away

Inside it's raining
Inside it's raining
Inside it's raining
Inside it's raining

    General Commenti'm surprised more people haven't commented this.

    the way i see it, it's about how messed up he feels (inside it's raining, it never lets up). and while he feels really alone and scared, and wants someone to help him it's like in reality he doesn't want anyone (i'm scared to be touched...) because he doesn't know how to deal with that. it's like he hates where he is, but he's too afraid to change it, and doesn't want to look to anyone for help.

    there's more, i just can't translate thoughts into words.
    really amazing song though.

    My OpinionAnyone heard the new version of the song with Adam Gontier? It's fantastic.

    This is a definite fantastic song though. Good lyrics.

    General Commentcan't believe no one commented this song. i love it. it one of my favorites.

    anyway i think it about how he feels alone and scared and no ones there for him and inside of him it feels like it raining (or drowning) because no one there to care for him.

    My InterpretationI found my only out, so just forget about talking me down
    I'll put this fire out and stop this burning
    That seriously sounds like hes standing on top of something high(HIGH), speaking to someone else, and hes preparing to jump.

    My InterpretationI agree with the other posters, I just want to add that I think that it also has to do with losing trust in others, and becoming closed off from others.

    Both versions are AMAZING.

    My InterpretationI have been diagnosed with a dis-associative disorder called Depersonalization. It's very hard to explain depersonalization, but the best why I can attempt to is to say that it's like watching yourself in a movie. You don't know what you're doing but you do it anyways. Your concept of reality is very poor and you have no control over your identity. When it boils down to it, you don't know who is staring in the mirror. When you look inside to see you are, it's almost as if it's raining. It's hard to get close to someone because you don't know who you are giving them and you don't know who they are. "I'm scared to me because I look like you. I don't want to be somebody I never knew.
    My idea is of a person dealing with similar disturbances. Someone who has tried so hard to get control of their sickness that the only way they can make it go away is to end it all. "I found my only out, so just forget about talking me down I'll put this fire out and stop this burning." If you couldn't live with yourself because of the pain that you go through and put your loved ones through, why go on?
