"On The Outside" as written by and Danny Elfman....
I stood close enough to hear you say
"Do as the beautiful ones do"
Tore up my picture from it's frame
I just wanted to be one of you

I'm standing on the outside
Looking in
Funny how you see the truth
But the feeling does come back
To you

She's crazy as anyone can be
that's what they say
They say of me
Wanting love, can make one do
It isn't my fault, heredity

I'm standing on the outside
Looking, looking
State of grace, state of sin.
I'm standing on the outside,
Looking, looking
Cannot feel a single thing
But the feeling does come back, again

This morning feels like yesterday
Yesterday follows me around
Where do you go when no one cares
Six-feet under, under ground

I'm standing on the outside
Looking, looking
State of grace, state of sin
I'm standing on the outside
Looking, looking
Cannot feel a single thing
But the feeling will come back, again
Again

    General CommentThis song is about never finding your place, never fitting in. Everyone around you seems to have their stuff together, know what they're doing, know where they're going and no problem ever comes up that they can't take care of. That makes you feel like even more of a mess. It feels like no matter what you do or how hard you try you just never quite belong. You're never quite good enough. That's what it sounds like to me on it's own, but it fit perfectly on the "Songs in the Key of X" CD and that it summed Mulder up perfectly. Except for the "she" parts.
