"I Stand Alone" as written by and Theophilus London Joakim Frans Ahlund....
The journey starts beneath the stars I stand alone
I put all my fears to all these years,
Swept away they're known
And know I run this town to be near you
No gray skies has ever turned blue

I stand alone
I stand alone
I stand alone
I stand alone

The rain is phenomenal, the way that it falls
Slammin' down like a domino and lay in the moss
Today is a new day, I'm lookin' for new prey
I'm tryin' to survive, tryin' to take in this love so
The clothes don't make the man
It's the man that makes the clothes
And if this war doesn't end there's nothing left to fight
And I'm sure you'll have it tonight and

I stand alone
I stand alone
I stand alone
(And know I run this town to be near you)
I stand alone
(Gray skies never turn blue)

It's the skill and the confidence
The will and the dominance
The deeper you get, the more the revert is prominent
When Uncle Sam knock on door
I tell him that I'm headed for the dock on the shore
Sailin' away, are you comin' with?
Just pack for the stay, 'cause we're finna get, get (heh)
The war don't end there's nothing left to fight
And I'm sure you'll have it tonight
'Til I stand alone

It starts beneath the stars I stand alone
I put all my fears to all these years, swept away they're known
And know I run this town to be near you
And no gray skies ever turn blue

I stand alone
I stand alone
I stand alone
I stand alone
I stand alone
I stand alone
I stand alone
I stand alone

    General Comment Can't believe nobody has posted on this song, it's such an amazing song. I'm gonna do my best to interpret the lyrics on the words alone since I know nothing about this artist.

    "The journey starts beneath the stars I stand alone"
    (Sounds the like the journey is his success as a rapper. It was a dream he saw in the stars but he stood alone in the fact that nobody supported him.)

    "i put all my fears to all these years,
    Swept away they're known"
    (Maybe he had fear of failure and used this fear to work hard for success all these years. And they were swept away in the fact that he's not given credit for his hard work.)

    "And know I run this town to be near you
    No gray skies has ever turned blue"
    (This sounds like he's saying all his work has been for this success, even though things have never gotten easier for him.)

    I stand alone
    I stand alone
    I stand alone
    I stand alone

    "The rain is phenomenal, the way that it falls
    Slammin' down like a domino and lay in the moss"
    (These lyrics are metaphorically clear. The challenges in life are phenomenal, the way they fall right into place like Domino's and then stay there like a milestone that leads to his success.)

    "Today is a new day, I'm lookin' for new prey
    I'm tryin' to survive, tryin' to take in this love so"
    (He has embraced being alone and the chalenges he's facing is loving them. Trying to survive and keep his succes Eager for more challenges)

    "The clothes don't make the man
    It's the man that makes the clothes"
    (Who you are isn't how others see you it's the image you choose to portray)

    "And if this war doesn't end there's nothing left to fight
    And I'm sure you'll have it tonight and "
    (It sounds like hes saying his success has the victory of war by not fighting it. He's not competing with other artists for fame. He's won by finding success in his own work and challenges.)

    I stand alone
    I stand alone
    I stand alone
    (And know I run this town to be near you)
    I stand alone
    (Gray skies never turn blue)

    "It's the skill and the confidence
    The will and the dominance
    The deeper you get, the more the revert is prominent
    (This is a very famous scientific study of a man's will to change habit and nature. With the dedication and hard work, a man can change his way of life and future which is what the artists is talking about with his success)

    When Uncle Sam knock on door
    I tell him that I'm headed for the dock on the shore
    Sailin' away, are you comin' with?
    Just pack for the stay, 'cause we're finna get, get (heh)
    (The Uncle Sam thing represents life thowing curve balls that can often force change. But the artists is saying that hes the captain of his boat "life" and others can go with him.)

    The war don't end there's nothing left to fight
    And I'm sure you'll have it tonight
    'Til I stand alone

    It starts beneath the stars I stand alone
    I put all my fears to all these years, swept away they're known
    And know I run this town to be near you
    And no gray skies ever turn blue


    Well that's my interpretation. Pretty much sounds like a rap song about an artists success and the fact that he made it all on his own.
