Growing strong, the voice of my father said
"Don't give up, don't be forgotten"
This hell on earth, I just want to run away
They told me dreams don't grow from here
Stay alone, count your fears
Somewhere down the line I might figure it out

Singin' all my songs to bedroom mirrors
Deep inside my heart I'm still here

We're always runnin' away and we don't even stop to think about it
The world's in our hands yeah
They don't need to understand
We do it our own way, no matter what they try to say about it
We've got our own plans yeah
They don't need to understand

They don't need to understand

What made me tough almost killed me
At least that's how I remember the story
Over the years I've forgotten how it was
But I survived and I won't walk down
The same old road that they all followed
It only leads to a life not meant for me

Singin' all my songs to bedroom mirrors
Deep inside my heart I'm still here

We're always runnin' away and we don't even stop to think about it
The world's in our hands yeah
They don't need to understand
We do it our own way, no matter what they try to say about it
We've got our own plans yeah
They don't need to understand

Streets in my hometown seem strange now
They feel like a distant memory
I'm always fighting 'cause I know you're trying
But you can never take this dream from me

We're always runnin' away and we don't even stop to think about it
The world's in our hands yeah
They don't need to understand
We do it our own way, no matter what they try to say about it
We've got our own plans yeah
They don't need to understand

They don't need to understand

They don't need to understand

    My InterpretationI believe this song means a lot of things. The one thing I got from this was simply they don't need to understand. You should be able to do whatever you want for any reason, no matter if other people question it. I believe that the "They" Andy is referring to is the haters. "They" don't need to understand why you are you. Just be yourself, even if people question you, because the people who truly love you won't need to understand you to love you. So, always be yourself, even if others don't understand you, because they don't need to understand.
