This song is about looking for a reason. A reason to live, to go on, to hope, a reason to keep on writing songs. Sometimes you feel so all alone and you don't want anyone to know. You don't want sympathy, you just want a reason.

Lyrics

Things seem a little different around here or maybe it’s just me
It all looks the same, it sounds the same it feels the same here
So yes, I guess it’s just me.
I’ve been sitting on my ass here, for three years come this May
I got to stir it up make a brand new start gotta do something besides just
Cutting off all my hair.

You see,
I can tell you everything but you wont see what’s inside me
And I can’t live this life knowing he’s got nothing planned for me
And I won’t let you in cuz I don’t want your sympathy
No you will never see
What burns in me.

If I keep running will I get somewhere
Will I make someone finally out of me?
We’re all covered up with all this shit we tell ourselves is real
Course, the only thing that’s real
Is how I feel
We’re all sterilized and compromised and paralyzed and then televised and I
I want to believe
There’s good above and bad below and the in between
Well I don’t know
Is there a God here, well I don’t think so.

You see
I can tell you everything but you wont see what’s inside me
And I can’t live this life knowing he’s got nothing planned for me.
And I won’t let you in cuz I don’t want your sympathy
No you will never see
What burns in me.
