"Odd One" as written by Emma Anzai, Shimon Moore, Antonina Armato and Timothy James Price....
Odd one, you're never alone
I'm here and I will reflect you
Both of us basically unattached to anything
Or anyone unless we're pretending

You live your life in your head
Some call it imagination
I'd rather focus instead on anything
Except what I'm feeling, what I'm feeling
Odd one

Aye, it's gonna be okay
Aye, we're gonna laugh at this one day

Odd one, I wish I was you
You're never concerned with acceptance
We are all desperately seeking out
And fitting in with anyone who will accept us
But not you, odd one

Aye, it's gonna be okay
Aye, we're gonna laugh at this one day

Hey, it's gonna be okay
Hey, gonna laugh at this one day

Aye, it's gonna be okay
Aye, we're gonna laugh at this one day

Don't let someone tell you you're no one
Don't let someone tell you you're no one
Odd one

    General Commenti think it's about someone who is there own self. they don't cave to peer pressure and have their own identity and hasn't conformed. Basically about anyone of those 'odd one' people that they need to be themselves, and don't let anyone get them down and that they are no-one. great song, awesome band.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about the artist saying words of comfort, appreciation, and encouragement to the "odd one." The artist is very different from the odd one but largely understands them.

    Odd one, you're never alone
    I'm here and I will reflect you
    both of us basically
    unattached to anything or anyone unless we're pretending

    (The odd one may be feeling lonely but he's saying that he's there acknowledging (reflecting) them in this song. He then goes on to imagine how they'd be free together).

    you live your life in your head
    some call it imagination
    I'd rather focus instead on anything except
    what I'm feeling

    (The odd one lives a more introverted life. The singer differentiates himself as someone trying to escape his own issues, probably the reason why he's noticed the odd one).

    Hey, it's gonna be ok
    hey, we're gonna laugh at this one day

    (He's saying that both he and the odd one will turn out alright in the end).

    Odd one, I wish I was you
    you're never concerned with acceptance
    we are all desperately seeking out, and fitting with anyone
    who will accept us
    but not you, odd one

    (The artist has seen a lot a crap which he blames on trying to find social acceptance. That's why he likes the odd one who isn't as concerned).

    Don't let someone
    tell you you're no-one
    don't let someone tell you you're no-one
    Odd one...

    (The artist implies again that the odd one isn't invincible or invulnerable when he gives them this encouragement).

    The chorus and the outro imply that they're around the same age, they're both old enough to have seen a lot of crap in life, but they're still young enough that his words of wisdom can make a difference.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about that one person that sits in the corner nobody talks to .. that one person that just looks "wierd" and anti-social. The "Odd One" that probably gets picked on for being different.
    The artist is admiring this persons differences, but recognizing that they are both very much equal. The artist fits in with the crowd by doing what everybody else is doing.. he covers up his insecurities by blending in, but he admires the "odd one" for not covering up insecurities, and not trying to fit in and is just being themselves.

    Song MeaningDefinetly about a guy who isnt concerned with what the rest of the world thinks of him and his actions all throughout his life. i.e. a guy who puts ranch dressing on his ... pizza?

    General Commentalright 1; I fucking love this song. 2; this is my and my bfs song. XD

    anyways; this song is about being yourself. That was quite straight forward. but I feel that (and also from what my bf explained to me) this song is about a girl who is hated because she's herself. and the guy is loved by everyone for whatever reason. And he has an interest with the chika for being herself and they end up together or something. Totally not in a lovey dovey full explanation mood; so you get the here's how shit went down description. XD

    also; it could be seen for transcendentalism. my english teacher would be so proud of me right now -.-

    General CommentThis song to me means that you're your own self because you are not into all of the groups that formed around you. He is trying to comfort the 'odd one' and he loves her for who she is. ♥

    My InterpretationThis song sounds to me like Shimon, the lead singer, is songing to Emma, seeing as they "grew up together".

    This is, by far, my new favorite band. The lyrics are deep and introspective and speak to me. And Shimon doesn't hide behind any veils. Good for him finally speaking his mind/heart. I sincerely envy him, and maybe Emma too.

    The bass and drums are sweetly strong and very complimentary. My only fear is that they forget what brought them to this point, like most new bands.

    My OpinionWhat a great song! I really like Sick Puppies. This song in my opinion, is discussing how some people don't fit in, even if they try hard to. I think it's about learning who you are and accepting it. If everyone where the same, then it'd be a boring world!

    I learned a long time ago that I was different from society. I never felt that I fit in that well in high school. I was a bit of a loner, although I had some friends. I didn't consider myself a loser and tried not to listen to what others said. People can be so mean around others who stand out, the people who try to do what's right often are mocked and taken advantage of. I have my beliefs and have been called a "unique individual" a few times in my life.

    Great song, full of meaning. I like when people stand up for the odd one out. Haha no pun intended. Now I look back and am proud that I didn't conform to what the others did just because it was the "cool" thing to do. Being yourself and believing in yourself is what I think this song is trying to say.
