"Spiders" as written by Thomas Michael Smith, Christopher Dominic Urbanowicz, Russell Leetch and Edward Owen Lay....
There's spiders in your room
But there always will be
There's people to be fooled
And there always has been

Hold out your hand
Hold out your hand, or we'll carry you
Hold out your hand
Hold out your hand; come back to me
Come back to me

With your back to the wall
You've got one place to fall
Sometimes it's all
Better on your own

Every little piece
Pulls in its own direction
Please, love, don't be scared
It's just your own reflection

Hold out your hand
Hold out your hand, or we'll carry you
Hold out your hand
Hold out your hand; come back to me
Come back to me

With your back to the wall
You've got one place to fall
Sometimes it's all
Better on your own

With your back to the wall
You've got one place to fall
Sometimes it's all
Better on your own

With your back to the wall
You've got one place to fall
Sometimes it's all
Better on your own

    General CommentThis is a very nice song. And I'm sure you guys are right that it's about someone passing away but I can't really understand the metaphores (if that's what it is) in the song. The only way I can see it's about someone passing away is the "Hold out your hand, or we'll carry you" part and the chorus aswell.

    First verse for example.. what is it with these spiders?

    General CommentThe correct lyrics are,
    "Hold out your hand,
    I will carry you."

    General CommentTheres spiders in your room
    But there always will be
    There's people to be fooled
    And there always has been

    I think this is about there always will be people who don't like you, who does bad for you, don't understand you etc. There never will be everything good in this life. Always will be some ''spiders'', spiders - bad things, moments or wrong people.

    With your back to the wall
    You've got one place to fall
    Sometimes its all better
    Better unknown

    Sometimes you make mistakes, risk and do something you after regret. So it's better sometimes to don't know what would be if you risked. But life is never perfect. There always will be some things you regret.

    Every little piece pulls
    In its own direction
    Please love dont be scared
    It's just your own reflection

    Hold out your hand
    Hold out your hand
    Or we'll carry you

    It's about someone who loves one person, saying don't scare to be with me, there always will be bad things, but we'll hold them together.

    General CommentHere is my take on the song:

    "There's spiders in your room
    But there always will be" I think he is singing to someone who is very insecure...always scared, surrounded by 'spiders' or negativity.

    There's people to be fooled
    And there always has been" He is saying they pretend to be strong in front of other and has always put up a brave-face.

    "Hold out your hand
    Hold out your hand, I will carry you...come back to me." He is telling her that she can lean on him, and that they should try again as her insecurities made her leave.

    "With your back to the wall
    You've got one place to fall" He is saying that she is playing it safe...scared of taking risks...like standing with your back against the wall so that you know where you will fall...if you were to fall

    :Sometimes it's all
    Better unknown" He is telling her its sometimes better to leave things up to chance, see what happens.

    "Every little piece
    Pulls in its own direction" She is unsure and her feelings scattered
    Please, love, don't be scared
    It's just your own reflection" Again she is insecure, scared of things which she need not be scared of

    General CommentThe Spiders metaphor is fairly straight forward. The clue to it comes from "It's Better Unknown" at the end. Spiders are like rats, you're always within close proximity of tem but a lot of the time we're oblivious to them. It's one thing to feel comfortable and safe, it's another to acknowledge whats around you. He then goes on to provide further examples of this. "There are people to be fooled, but there always has been", comments probably about some people attitude to the Iraq wat and how so many were quite happy to have the wool pulled over their eyes. How it's easy to feel protected but sometimes we must face the truth that the situation we're in is a frightening one.

    That's my shout on the meaning anywhere
