"The Everchanging Spectrum of a Lie" as written by Rhiannon Bryan and Rhydian Davies....
Call in the social
Call in the mediation
How else can a shadow
Behind her not follow

Call on the lonely
A plea for you to befriend her
Makes only you feel better
Make only you

Nothing outside will care enough
Nothing outside of you

This trail that you're treading
Is one flicked switch awaiting many
The coils the echoes rattling
I hope the fears are buried beneath my love

My love
Love is the everchanging spectrum of a lie,
A lie to hide behind when nothings right
You take form with ink and blood
Can't you see I'm good

Nothing outside will care enough
Nothing outside of you

The dangers of showing
Any kind of weakness

Just to forget your born

Nothing outside of you

    General CommentFantastic song on a fantastic album.

    This is just my interpretation, but I feel like the song is about a girl who is going through her years in superficial friendships without actually feeling what it is to have a real bond with another human being. These superficial friendships are filled with petty conflicts which she discusses with her friends, who also get too involved in her drama, trying to 'mediate'. These are not really much of friends, but they all act behave in a similar manner to the subject girl.

    When she tries to have a meaningful relationship with a human being, she looks for someone lonely, who surely will not pass up the chance to have a friend. This backfires, as she still cannot actually share herself with the person because they aren't really friends based on anything concrete. The lonely person is just happy to have someone to call a friend, while the subject girl is not genuinely satisfied. The girl cannot make friends for the right reasons.

    All throughout this song, she can't find anyone who actually cares about her, so she feels that 'nothing outside will care enough', leaving herself to care about herself.

    She can't figure it out, though. She keeps trying to do the same thing, hoping it will succeed in making her actual friends. This won't ever work, though, so she tries to find love. However, even this is superficial and fake, as she hasn't figured out how to actually relate to another human being on a deep level. When she can't get things right and keeps getting left behind by guys she tries to love, she can't see why none of them see her as good enough. In reality, she needs to see herself for whom she really is and show that to people. They can't just see it.

    She can't just show herself, because it makes her seem weak and exposes her to the trivial drama she believes will continue with everyone, when in reality, it shouldn't if she finds real friends. She tries to pretend she is not affected by human needs, hence the "forget you're born" part.
