Isn't this nice? My own worst enemy taking control of things
Now is the time, this is the melody, this is the symphony
Now hear my cry, there's no words beneath
There's no in between, there's no alibi to make this right
No behind the scenes, everything you sees what you get

Don't fight the world outside
It's changing me, changing me
To whom I'm afraid of
I can't confide in anything
The crowd will not rest tonight

If you look twice
The second time you might fail to recognize
Look through my eyes
Maybe a part of the old me is left inside

Now hear my cry, there's no words beneath
There's no in between, there's no alibi to make this right
No behind the scenes, everything you sees what you get

Don't fight the world outside
It's changing me, changing me
To whom I'm afraid of
I can't confide in anything
The crowd will not rest tonight, the crowd will not rest tonight

Finally I can hold the key, but the clock is still ticking, clock is still ticking
I can't see
What does all this mean when the lock is still missing, lock is still missing

Finally I can hold the key, but the clock is still ticking, clock is still ticking
I can't see
What does all this mean when the lock is still missing?

The world outside
It's changing me, changing me
To whom I'm afraid of
I can't confide in anything
The crowd will not rest tonight

The world outside
It's changing me, changing me
To whom I'm afraid of
I can't confide in anything
The crowd will not rest tonight, the crowd will not rest tonight

    General CommentWhy aren't there any comments for this song? :/ I think it's good.

    Anyways, it took me maybe a month and a half to finally get an opinion about 'The World Outside'. It reminds me of peer pressure. Like.. when something twists life, you have a limited time to fix it in the harsh public. And if you don't, you'll never return to who you were just fighting it alone. It also reminds me of losing confidence when you change.

    'the crowd will not rest tonight' - peer pressure
    'my own worst enemy taking control of things' - life twisting
    'clock is still ticking' - limited time
    'the world outside' - the public
    'i cant confide in anything'/'there is no alibi to make this right' - alone
    '..is changing me..'/'maybe a part of the old me is left inside' - losing who you were

    etc., hope it helps.

    General CommentI agree with Nahiki_Multi about the peer pressure thing.


    'Isn't this nice? My own worst enemy taking control of things' - Implying that the mind is our own worst enemy... it takes control of us.

    'There's no in between, there's no alibi to make this right. No behind the scenes, everything you sees what you get.' - Implying that there's no one to change things back to how things use to be. Everything people see is what they're gonna get for now on, they didn't see the change and they'll never see what things use to be like unless they 'Look through my eyes, Maybe a part of the old me is left inside'

    Song Meaningthis song means to me ,
    this young boy is so sad because the enemy has moved in him and he is trapped and he doesnt know how to get the enemy out and then he tells himself,that he can not trust anyone and not even himself because now the enemy is trying to control his mind,he fight by himself but he is too weak.and he says the crowd is waiting for me, the crowd is the monsters outside in the outside world,and they walk around like sobies,because they stole the souls of man,now they are demons and no longer humans,he says they won't rest,until my soul is taken too there is so little time,like a ticking clock because im the last one left,that still has my soul.the devils trying to change me by twisting my mind and confuse me,the crowd is pressuring,like peer pressure,yelling to bully me....and then you see something but you and tell,its me because i look old because ive been alone for so long,trapped from within with the enemy inside,and theres a lock and key and im the one in it,but how to get out because the crowd won't reat till my soul is gone.......hes crying for help but know one can hear him, because hes the last one on earth that still has his soul....... written by me donise and this is what this song means to me, march 22,2013 friday at 1:58 am thank you for reading
