"Whoa Oh! (Me vs. Everyone)" as written by Geoffrey Rockwell, Austin N...
I candy-coat and cover everything
But I'm still hiding underneath
It's been a long time,
It's been a long time
A thousand faces looking up at me
Hands all pointing to the ceiling
Oh what a feeling

I've got friends in highly low places
I'm standing on post, and im posted up
Cant afford to lose them
I've got friends and highly low places
I'll go inside when I wanna party
Grab a girl and dance (don't touch me)

[Chorus]
Whoa oh Whoa oh Whoa oh,
Why do I put myself in these situations
Whoa oh Whoa oh Whoa oh,
I keep pushing myself even though
I can't take it at all, whoa

Girl, who taught you how to move like that?
At this pace you're at you're moving way too fast
I, I saw you from across the room
It's me vs. every guy
It's your choice, you choose

I've got friends in highly low places
It's been a long time it's been a long time
And maybe baby you can rise above the rest to meet me

[Chorus: x2]

You're worth,
Losing my self esteem
Your clever words mean
Nothing more to me than
Than a line I heard in a movie
You're worth,
Losing my losing my losing my self esteem
You're not worth,
Putting myself in these situations

[Chorus: x2]

    My InterpretationI think the song works on 2 different levels like most songs.The view they've written it on,but it's also flexibable so other people can relate to it.I think they wrote it on their experience of making themselves the band they are,which meens when their on stage they have this big ego,and its about how trying to cross that into real life is difficult.I think it works for anyone though because it can be interpretted as you making yourself out to be something bigger and more exciting than you are to 'get the girl'.

    'I candy-coat and cover everything
    But I'm still hiding underneath
    It's been a long time
    It's been a long time'

    Simply saying what he is most of the time is an act.He covers up the real him and tries to be the persona that hes created.

    'A thousand faces looking up at me
    Hands all pointed to the ceiling
    Oh, what a feeling'

    Read literally it means, wow what a feeling when your on stage and everyones there. However, it could also be a metaphore saying everyones looking upto him as a person, and 'pointed to the ceiling' means they have high expectations, and 'oh,what a feeling' could be wow they're all looking upto me and my fake persona.


    'I've got friends in highly low places
    I'm standing on post, and I'm posted up
    Can't afford to lose them
    I've got friends in highly low places
    I'll go inside when I wanna party
    Grab a girl and dance
    (Don't touch me)'

    I think this part's saying he feels hes much higher up that he actually is.He has this big ego on stage,or with his fake persona he uses to cover up his real self, but when he tries to act popular and 'big' he gets rejected '(don't,touch me)'.

    'Whoa oh, whoa, whoa oh
    Why do I put myself in these situations?
    Whoa oh, whoa, whoa oh
    I keep pushing myself
    Even though I can't take it at all'

    He finds himself always being turned down because he's trying to keep up with his persona that hes created,when really,he hasn't got what it takes to pull off what he wants to be.


    'Girl, who taught you how to move like that?
    At this pace you're at you're moving way to fast
    I, I saw you from across the room
    It's me versus every guy
    It's your choice
    You choose'

    simply,hes going for the girl every guy wants,and she can choose whoever she wants to have

    'And maybe baby,
    you could rise above the rest to meet me'

    This part shows his egotistic persona hes created, to cover up his lack of confidence and self-esteem, takes over. He has already explained in this verse that the girl he wants is the girl that everyone wants. In this last part of verse he's trying to say that he's above her,and she'd have to work at it to get to him. 'meet me' is saying hes already above the others,when we already know from the first part of the verse that the girl could actually have anyone she wants.


    'You're worth losing my self-esteem
    Your clever words mean nothing more to me
    Than a lot I've heard in a movie
    You're worth losing my, losing my
    Losing my self-esteem
    You're not worth
    Putting myself in these situations'

    He realises here that she's not worth it,and maybe the situation hes put himself in,with the big, made up ego wasn't really worth it after all.

    General CommentROFLROFLROLFORLFORFL, I read this the day it came up and yes, I agree with Ashleee. bin is not been.

    And there's no way in hell the lyrics were "I gave birth to myself even though I can't take it at all".

    ..Thank you for changing them finally.

    General Commentthis might jus be me, but I think the first line is 'I nearly couldn't cover everything that I'm still hiding underneath' ..
