Words pierce through the air
They make you wear
To get you in a straight jacket label with your face
Turned to the wall
This place penetrates
When everyone that ever tries
To tell you that you're not the same
Watches you fall
You're pushing on the wall inside
You're pushing outside to find the reasons
You run from this place
When they label you
Pushing on the wall inside

Reasons to run from this place
When they label you
Pushing on the wall inside

You're inside
Thinking of everyone you ever knew
When they put you outside
In the separating wall
I can see you
Standing there waiting for the answer
To the reason no one operates the way you do
Your point of view

Every day that they can't see
Afraid of what they might find
In the way of what they see
Afraid of what's inside of you

    General CommentBeautiful song. You guys are lucky to be from around their hometown! You're right, they are awesome live. I think the song's about what it's like to be signed to a label such as Straight Jacket Labels.

    General CommentThis song is about someone who has been labeled a freak by their peers, and their internal struggle to try and make themselves more normal.
