"Symphonies" as written by Stefanie Kloss, Andreas Jan Nowak, Johannes Stolle, Thomas Stolle, Grant Black and Sarah Brightman....
I come disguise I was hypnotized
Lost a track, struggled back
I wanted easy stuff to please me
Something in the dark began to squeeze me
Seen it, there, then there in the mirror
Totally focused, no hocus pocus
Dare I give in to this thing gripping my skin
To win, thinking how to
As

The lights of a car go by in a stream
Seems like I stand pretty much unseen
But I open my eyes and beams
Come out

Gimme, gimme, symphonies
Gimme more than the life I see
Score adds up
Angels play
Let my loneliness get blown away

Gimme, gimme, symphonies
Gimme more than the life I see

I lie down in the dust just under your eye
A scrap of paper, thin as vapor
Filling my clothes like smoke
A couple of the wires in my heart are broke
I throw, I miss, something, nothing
But dreams, schemes, moments wasted
Taste I tasted
Fate I'm fated
Re-edited again then copy pasted
As

The lights of a car go by in a stream
Seems like I stand pretty much unseen
But I open my eyes and beams
Come out

Gimme, gimme, symphonies
Gimme more than the life I see
Score adds up
Angels play
Let my loneliness get blown away

Gimme, gimme, symphonies
Gimme more than the life I see

When I wanna quit, I suffocate it
I chew bubblicious, stress repetitious
Vicious, I'm one outsider
Up above the streets on the DCY-er
Higher, fire in my guts
In a rut, but what I've got
Is in no can, no other human
But I do get lonely, scared I'm phony
As

The lights of a car go by in a stream
Seems like I stand pretty much unseen
But I open my eyes and beams
Come out

Gimme, gimme, symphonies
Gimme more than the life I see
Score adds up
Angels play
Let my loneliness get blown away

Gimme, gimme, symphonies
Gimme more than the life I see

Gimme, gimme symphonies
Gimme more than the life I see

Gimme, gimme symphonies
Gimme more than the life I see

    Song MeaningI think this song is about wanting more out of life, which is pretty much evident from the lines

    "Gimme, gimme symphonies
    Gimme more than the life I see"

    He wants to find meaning and purpose, direction - something he's sacrificed in return for the "easy stuff" that pleases him. The world passes him by, and he's just another face in the crowd (standing pretty much unseen)

    General Commentgreat song actually, i think it's more about other people excepting who you are, but until then you are without purpose or being because no one hears your theories and ideas.
    "I know that there's some place just right for me. Yeah.
    I'm in it, ain't no need to seek it."
    "Let my lonliness get blown away"
    and
    "So unconscious, just me and my conscious."
    kinda shows how he feels that people are oblivious to how he feels and thinks as well as how he wants to have company or this purpose in his life.
