"Outside" as written by Jorel Decker, Daniel Murillo, George Arthur Ragan and Matthew Busek....
Someone left the door open
Who left me outside
I'm bent, I'm not broken
Come live in my life
All the words left unspoken
Are the pages I write
On my knees and I'm hoping
That someone holds me tonight
Hold me tonight

Welcome to the world and all the land in it was wasted
The blood upon your hands and the wickedness that made it
Sing or scream it all and the memories keep fading
See the exit wound, dear God what have we taken?
Guess I'll say a prayer and I'll kiss into the air
I'll look into the sky, send them straight to nowhere
We all dug the grave, can't shake away the shame
Quiver in the sky but you're shaken all the same
You left us with the guns and all of them unloaded
Teach us how to shoot but you taught us how to hold them
All the weight of all the world is right between your shoulders
Heavy is the heart when the world keeps growing colder

Who left the door open
Who left me outside
I'm on my knees and I'm hoping
That someone holds me tonight
Hold me tonight

Two sides to every story, here's a little morning glory
Breakfast of a mirror, dying slow seems a little boring
Burning like a flag, walking straight into the breeze
'Cause there's two types of people, you are weak or you are me
Yeah what's another life time like mine
We all die a little sometimes, it's alright
Did you come to say your goodbyes to this life?
We all hurt a little sometimes, we're alright
So mothers hold your children, don't you ever let 'em go
There is weakness in your grip and they are holding all our hope
Don't you ever let me go (Don't you ever let me go)
Don't you ever let me go (Don't you ever let me go)

Who left the door open
Who left me outside
I'm on my knees and I'm hoping
That someone holds me tonight
Hold me tonight

Someone left the door open
Who left me outside
I'm bent, I'm not broken
Come live in my life
All the words left unspoken
Are the pages I write
On my knees and I'm hoping
That someone holds me tonight
Hold me tonight

    General CommentTo me this song is about the transition from he innocents of our youth into the reality of becoming a grown up and seeing the world for what it is. The illusions that are pressed upon us as children to protect us have fallen and the person is desperate to reenter that place but the door to childhood is forever closed once we walk through. He is praying for comfort in a world he was unprepared for.

    Song Meaningether this interpretation or the one below are true. But mine is about the military.
    you see the term "outside" meens society, and the government is saying how cool it is to be in the military. 'You left us with the guns and all of them unloaded
    Teach us how to shoot but you taught us how to hold them' meen the military shows us how to use the guns they give us, and tell us to shoot "the enemy". 'So mothers hold your children, don't you ever let 'em go
    There is weakness in your grip and they are holding all our hope' means that mothers will let their children go "outside" and get brain washed into thinking the military is cool, and that they need to be stricter on what they are exposed to.
    There is weakness in your grip, means that your children will try to break your grip on them. and they are holding all our hope, means that the children are the fate of this world.
