"Something I'm Not" as written by and Christopher Glover Ben Fries....
We can barely see
But we don't wanna turn the lights on
And we can barely speak
Sorry if we can't get to the phone

Please, I'm trying to sleep
Jeez, you're making such a fool out of me
I need to eat
Won't you let me back in the door?

And you won't sit down
And I won't sit down
And we keep spinning in place
'Til we make our way back around

And you make no sense
And I make no sense
I guess we're lucky that we don't mind
Living with accidents

If we could tie ourselves together
I could become something I'm not
And it's the last thing I remember
How to become something I'm not
Something I'm not

All we wanna do is leave
Until we step outside of the rule
We get confused
Won't you let me back in the door?

Please, I'm trying to sleep
Jeez, you're making such a fool out of me
I need to eat
Sorry if we can't get to the phone

And you won't sit down
And I won't sit down
And we keep spinning in place
'Til we make our way back around

And you make no sense
And I make no sense
I guess we're lucky that we don't mind
Living with accidents

If we could tie ourselves together
I could become something I'm not
And it's the last thing I remember
How to become something I'm not
Something I'm not

I'll speak the love and I'll never lie
I'll beat the love and I'll never lie
I'll beat the love and I'll never lie
I'll beat the love and I'll never lie

I'll beat the love and I'll never lie
I'll beat the love and I'll never lie
I'll beat the love and I'll never lie
I'll beat the love and I'll never lie

I'll beat the love and I'll never lie
I'll beat the love and I'll never lie
I'll beat the love and I'll never lie
I'll beat the love and I'll never lie

I'll speak the love and I'll never lie
I'll beat the love and I'll never lie
I'll speak the love and I'll never lie
I'll beat the love and I'll never lie

I'll speak the love and I'll never lie
I'll beat the love and I'll never lie
I'll speak the love and I'll never lie
I'll beat the love and I'll never lie

I'll speak the love and I'll never lie
I'll beat the love and I'll never lie
I'll speak the love and I'll never lie
I'll beat the love and I'll never lie

    General CommentI believe it's about the fear of not measuring up...not being able to be successful in one or more aspects of ones life. Often people won't try or they're bow out once they determine (often errorneously) that they won't make the grade. Good song...very relatable to human nature.

    My InterpretationA person that has trouble controlling themselves, they got lost in procrastination and never get anything done. They can't decide, they're forgetful, they waste their time... but they don't want to pretend being something that they are not... and when they have to be responsible, they just take their car out for a ride to clear their head.
