about

This song is a dedication to socially awkward people, many of whom are dismissed by others as being “weird”, and therefore frequently ignored and not given a fair chance. The deeper meaning of the song is that discrimination can take on many different forms, many of which go undetected in the modern world, and how people should all pay attention to how we treat others by thinking about how we ourselves wish to be treated.

lyrics

Correct me if I’m wrong but it seems your memory’s in tact
Settled in the places where your friends all saw you last
And I will never understand just how it came to pass
That you flit around the hills at night waiting for someone to react

Uncomfortable in your own skin
Out of luck and the options are wearing thin

Say something
Say anything
‘Cause we’re all getting off lightly and nobody feels your pain
And if you
Can’t find your way back home tonight take heart
That nobody knows your name

The world gets colder everyday as every second ticks away
I feel I’ve been in luck ‘cause though I’ve strayed my efforts entertain
So while everyone else shares their quiet homes in a quiet place
It’s unfortunate that some are forced to keep out of our way

Uncomfortable in your own skin
Out of luck and the options are wearing thin

Say something
Say anything
‘Cause we’re all getting off lightly and nobody feels your pain
And if you
Can’t find your way back home tonight take heart
That nobody knows your name

Set expectations low
If I want too much then I can’t have anything
And yes I see I know my position’s always safe because of it

Say something
Say anything
‘Cause we’re all getting off lightly and nobody feels your pain
And if you
Can’t find your way back home tonight take heart
That nobody knows your name

Nobody knows your name
