"Strange" as written by Fred B. Burch and Mel Tillis....
This strange
Plan is random at best

This strange
How much more can I take?

This strange
Change in atmosphere
And in gravity too
And it's severity

This strange
Day is almost over

Just started to
Get sick of it

And it's strange
But not all that strange
That it's strange
But what's so strange
About that?

Yeah it's strange
But why is that strange
That it's strange
But oh, well

This strange
Plan is random at best

This strange
How much more can I take?

This strange
Sound you said I said

You're not listening or
I'm not saying it right

This strange
War of promises

Let's call us a truce
And call it the truth

And it's strange
But not all that strange
That it's strange
But what's so strange
About that?

Yeah it's strange
But what isn't strange
Yeah it's strange
But oh well

    General CommentVery kick ass voice. It's got a funky tune, but that makes it all the more lovable. Can't really say what the song is about... it's one of those things were I think I know, but then again I'm not sure. And I don't even know how to describe it. You know? I guess he's just talking about how... strange... things are.

    General CommentThis song reflects the way I feel if I sit in a room alone for a very very long time and lose track of time...the song is lilting, almost offbeat...i think it's about accepting something--a moment or a truth--for what it is, without trying to define it. The disagreement, "you're not listening or/i'm not saying it right" reflects his inability to express exactly how he feels. It's just intangible. Strange.

    General CommentOK so a friend of mine looked through my CD collection and saw bands like Slint and Flaming Lips..she said I should check out BTS and this was the first song I ended up hearing. And I've been hooked ever since.

    General CommentI would suggest that this song refers to the strange plan of "God" and watching a relationship fall apart.

    General Commenti've always though this song is about tripping or an out of body experience

    "and it's strange
    but not all that strange
    that it's strange
    but what's so strange
    about that?"

    almost everyone has said that while tripping or while have an out of body experience

    General CommentI think this is about a relationship falling apart too, the plan and the 'strangenesses' I think is about a swril of emotions, from a very intimate and melancolic perspective, on what that relationship turned out to be, when you don't know what to think or feel anymore about what's happening, about what was, what is, what was gonna be..

    Interesting that, assuming the music is about an outter body experience, fit it alright too =]

    General CommentI'm fairly sure it's "but nothings all that strange" rather than "but not all that strange."
