"Different" as written by and Robert Swire Thompson....
We see the shadows that are falling from your eyes
Draining your face of everything but the disguise

Don't hide baby
Let them see your true colors
Don't mind the camera
Let them see your black heart tonight

Don't hide baby
Show them just how deep it goes
Don't mind the cameras
Let them see your black heart, baby

You've been perfect from the start
They told me that time has only done you wrong

We are going to a different place, we take in everything we can
There's no expression left upon our face
'Cause time is running out so fast
It's sinking in the sand

You've been talking from the heart
Saying that I can't feel your way from earth

We are going to a different place, we take in everything we can
There's no expression left upon our face
'Cause time is running out so fast
It's sinking in the sand

Sinking in the sand
Sinking in the sand

    General CommentI thought it was "Don't mind the camera, let them see your black heart tonight.
    Don't try baby, show them just how deep it goes,
    Don't mind the cameras, let them see your black heart baby"

    Could be wrong but that's what I've always thought, brilliant song anyway.

    General CommentAfter the chorus, the lyrics sound more like "You've been talking from the heart. Saying that I have been away from life."
    Also I agree that it's "black heart" the second time, and "back out" the first time.

    Anyone else care to actually comment on the meaning, and not just lyrics? To me, the lyrics point to a girl who is clearly depressed, not in the best of situations, and that it's only getting worse. The singer's point of view is that the girl must ignore everyone who she feels will judge her, and escape the situation rather than just hiding all her troubles away. The chorus seems to point to this, suggesting that the singer is helping to escape with her, saying they're going to a 'different place', i.e. they're getting away from the rest of society which was responsible for the girl's problems to begin with. They must escape from it quickly though, as it will only get worse ("We're sinking in the sand").

    General CommentTo me, this song represents the difficulty of "Audiosurf".

    General CommentDon't try baby, let them see your true colours
    Don't mind the camera, let them see you're black heart tonight

    Makes sense - "Back out" does not, plus "black heart" sounds better and more poetic.

    General CommentI think it should be 'black heart' both times around, but I like to think of the second time as 'black out'. To me this song, especially the first verse, relates somehow to depression.
    "We see the shadows that are falling from your eyes" -- yes, you are tired as hell
    "Draining your face of everything but the disguise" -- but you try to keep a straight face and go through it alone
    "Don't hide baby, let them see your true colours
    Don't mind the camera, let them see your black heart tonight" -- the camera represents that there's always people watching, and everything you do out of normal will be remembered, but ignore that and release your pain
    "Don't hide baby, show them just how deep it goes" -- sure does.
    "Don't mind the cameras, let them see your black out baby" -- when it becomes too much

    my interpretation only, though.
