"Whimsical" as written by and Travis Shane Meeks....
I can see the orange sky in front of me
I can see things you'll never see
People say it's all a fucking dream
But I can say words you couldn't speak

Is it me
Can you believe
You'll never live the world I live
Is it me
It is only me
I can only live a world to live

Break away from you
Shattered beliefs
Detaching from my body
Desperate in grief

I have changed the world in front of me
One against all
I'm starving this world

Is it me
Do you want me
You think you can have me
Say you love me
You want me
I'm saving my money
'Cause I don't pay to breathe

I'm not afraid to live
I'm not afraid to die
I can only give
What I see inside

You can only take
What I give of me
You can only win
When I'm not afraid to lose

Subjected to you mother nature
Limited to the color of your eyes
Drained by the one you call your lover
She don't care
If you live or die

Is it me
Do you want me
You think you can have me
Say you love me
You want me
I'm saving my money
'Cause I don't pay to breathe

I'm not afraid to live
I'm not afraid to die
I can only give
What I see inside

You can only take
What I give of me
You can only win
When I'm not afraid to lose

You can only win
When I'm not afraid to lose

We all have our problems
I evolve sometimes
There are always problems
But I don't have a problem

I stand above

    General CommentI believe the song is about being an isolationist in relationships (friends, lovers, etc.), hiding your entire self from the other person... however, in effect, creating two personas. One persona is your "stage" persona, and the other created of more personal things. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable to other people is a very hard thing to do.

    General Commenti've always said, "this is how i feel about women." and the lyric is "people say it's all a fucking dream." i think it's about being true to your own self, beliefs, what have you, in spite of what others tell you. however it could simply be about drugs or religion or both. anywho... great song. open for interpretation.

    General CommentI can see the orange sky in front of me.
    20 years ago I thought that meant a sunset or sunrise. I have recently seen an orange sky, or ceiling to be exact. I k kW understand why he felt his band was holding him back. He was in touch with the Holy Spirit and forgiveness. It never made sense why he would separate himself from this band when it seemed so magically perfect until I experienced the orange sky in front of me. I wish I could write less literally. It pushes people away more than draws em in when open ended. Can I get a hell yeah?
