"It's Not Ironic, It's Obvious" as written by and Michael/white Jagmin....
Wander alone
Seeing is believing
Not without a soul to hold me flat on the ground
I meant every word I said

You are the one I've been looking for
Wanting more
I'm all alone in this
What part of that did you miss?
That will not last

Hey you, I am the one you've been running from
But I know they don't know that maybe I was meant to live this way
In a love struck kind of way

Follow me into the void
Excuse me, do I even know you?
No you don't, no you don't
Get a grip, oh my god get a grip
On what? on what?

The final piece that I need is that spark in your eye
Where did it go?

My own disguise is right in my sights
We learn we breathe
The sky hears my plea

Hey you, I am the one you've been running from
But I know they don't know that maybe I was meant to live this way
In a love struck kind of way
In two dimensions always

I've been living in the light of the world
Even you can't change me now

    My Opinionthis song is like really good the screaming is sick especially

    "Excuse me, do I even know you?
    No you don't, no you don't.
    Get a grip, oh my god get a grip.
    On what? on what?"

    to me it sounds so clear
    the band is flippin bad ass though

    General Commentpersonally i think this song is about someone, a guy, has loved someone else, a girl, for as long as he can remember and he has been trying to get her to love him back and eventually he succeeds.

    and after some time she realizes he has become a completely different person (Excuse me, do I even know you?), maybe because he has gotten involved in drugs, or he has become famous and has gotten his head in the clouds. (I've been living in the light of the world,)
    he notices that she has changed as well (The final piece that I need is that spark in your eye. Where did it go?) and he realizes that it is his fault and tries to fix it in multiple different ways including prayer (the sky hears my plea.), but has no idea of how (even you can't change me now.)

    but in the end he decides to just go on admiring the girl from afar (maybe I was meant to live this way,
    in a love struck kind of way.).

    idk. this is just how i saw this song, if you have a different interpretation then das kuul.

    My InterpretationMy experience my interpretation....


    I had this girlfriend... And well she began changing... So did I apparently... Our friendship wa sbased on mutual trust an affection... BUt then.... The relationship changed and so did she... All she did was upset me and well... I began growing apathetic towards her... So yeah...

    "I meant ever word I said... you were the one I've been looking for" she made me so happy... And well of all the people around me she was the one wanted the most...

    "Well I'm alone in this what part of that did you miss? That will not last!"
    she made me feel like I had someone to hold onto when I felt like I was drowning... She was the one there for me, giving me her hand when I fell...

    "Hey you!!! I am the one you've been running from!! But I know they dont know... That maybe I was meant to live this way... In a lovestruck kind of way..."- i guess I was too unsettling for her... And well she never wanted to be so close to a persona like me...

    "Excuse me do I even know you?
    No you don't, no you dont"

    that's when things began to be a mess... I didnt know who she was anymore and apparently she never knew what I was either... And now... Well I'm running away... Still... And so is she... Believing that not even the clock will find her...

    I think its about broken relationships and betrayal in a way... Maybe... Or maybe is fungus trip.... The composer ate a mushroom went cuckoo for a few and wrote this... ^^

    My InterpretationIt's about stalking and unrequited love.

    Wander alone. (target always keeps company around them)
    Seeing is believing. ("Notice me! Notice me!!")
    Not without a soul to hold me flat on the ground, ("Your friends are always around you!")
    I meant every word I said.

    You are the one I've been looking for,
    wanting more. (Red Flag)
    I'm all alone in this,
    what part of that did you miss? (Guilt trip)
    That will not last. (Relentlessness)

    Hey you, I am the one you've been running from. (Unrequited love)
    But I know they don't know that maybe I was meant to live this way,
    in a love struck kind of way. (Another guilt trip)

    Follow me into the void. (Stalker's leap of faith)
    Excuse me, do I even know you? (target asks)
    No you don't, no you don't. (Stalker responds)
    Get a grip, oh my god get a grip. (Target pleads)
    On what? on what? (Stalker responds)

    The final piece that I need is that spark in your eye. (Another red flag)
    Where did it go? (target is not who the stalker originally thought they were)

    My own disguise is right in my sights. (Yearns for a new life with target)
    We learn we breathe,
    the sky hears my plea. (Stalker is still relentless)

    Hey you, I am the one you've been running from.
    But I know they don't know that maybe I was meant to live this way,
    in a love struck kind of way.
    In two dimensions always. (Stalker laments about their separate lives)

    I've been living in the light of the world,
    even you can't change me now. (The stalker openly admits his obsession)
