"Looking Outside Inside" as written by Daniel Cavanagh, Vincent Cavanagh, John James Douglas, Keith Leslie Smith and David John Pybus....
Is this the one thought it was insane?
Coming down against it all
Didn't want it. Didn't need it. Didn't want it.
Twisted face of feigning beauty
Count the cost of suffering
Cannot see the day before you
Only feel what's deep inside
Trying to change it makes no difference

Didn't want it. Didn't need it. Didn't want it.
Didn't want it. Didn't need it. Didn't want it.

Let me go
Looking outside inside, craving for something
Hoping for anything, I'll believe in anything
Who has eyes that see, who wants to believe?
In something, in anything? In one thing, in freedom
Looking outside inside

Self assist pandemonium, broken promises
Died alive flying high, you caught me in your eye
Disintegrated incinerated, this is not how I want to be
Too much is coming through, someone please tell me what to do
Looking outside inside

    General CommentI believe that is about the frustration that produces to idealize someone who you esteem and trust, and this person betraies you

    General CommentIt's about self-realization.

    You see everything that's happening to you, but you're viewing it as a separate source, from a collected, outside perspective.

    The character in this concept now sees what he has become after catching a glimpse of himself as a child, and he is helpless to do anything about it at this time. He's broken all of the promises he made to himself as a child, and has instead resorted to a material existence with a material soul.

    General Commentas @hateu i think this one is about frustration, but not for love or someone.. is about the life in general
    and he want become better but he can´t, so he begins to despair.
    Is a next step after the "release" song
