It started like a normal day...
I jumped and explored the yard
My senses seemed tense
Like a bomb between two friends

They've never really been my friends,
Just a common sense of self
But today I feel so strange,
Like I'm someone else x2

My creation
My imagination
I've become different now
My speech and thoughts are out x2

All your sounds I've memorized,
Now I can send them back
Do I show you what I've done,
Or keep it all inside?

I can now find humans friends
Outside our common self
But today I feel so strange,
That's why I'll become my own self

My creation
My imagination
I've become different now
My speech and thoughts are out x2

Wake up.

    My OpinionI think it makes more sense that it's about someone that was "part of the group" realizing that he's not like the others because he wants to have a voice and vocal opinion rather than just "follow the crowd."

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who suddenly realizes his friends are abusing him and he tells them off.

    GREAT SONG! Love his clean voice, hope to hear more of this in BTBAM's newer stuff

    General Commentthe more i listen to this i think its about his dog. the line is "like a bone between friends" and that says something and the whole exploring the yard idea and making human friends surely seems like its not from a human perspective
