** written by Mark Sandman **

All around the world
Everywhere I go
No one understands me
No one knows
What I'm trying to say

No one understands me
They look at me when I talk to them
And they scratch their heads
They go what's he trying to say

But you, you speak my language
Yeah you, you speak my language

All around the world
Everywhere I go
No one understands me
No one knows
What I'm trying to say

Even in my hometown
My friends make me write it down
They look at me when I talk to them
And they shrug their shoulders
They say what's he talking about

    General CommentThis song simply speaks about how someone deals with misinterpretation and how others don't understand them completely, then finding that one person that understands exactly what you were saying. In other words, an intellectual, logical mind not bogged down by media, religion, drugs, and all the other modern hype finally colliding with another like-minded individual and cherishing it for how rare it actually is.
