You had that nighttime confidence / Yet again
Like when you tear us all to bits / Yet again
If you really want advice here / You're too much like a wall
If you're gonna light those fires / We're all up in arms again

Well I don't belong here / Don't fit your style
Felt your left foot / Now meet my right

See now over this, you meddler / Feed off all the rest, you meddler
Talking so close, you bring to mind / No fun to be behaving
But you really lit a fire / All up in arms again
Why don't you feed off all the rest

Well, I don't belong here / Don't fit your style
Felt your left foot / Now meet my right
It's now or never / More difficult
Those midnight answers / And stray arrows

Never, never / Lean on you
Clever, clever / One on two
You're mine / Finite / Imagine this
It's sad / To say / It's simple / When still we want to watch

Well, I don't belong here / Don't fit your style
Felt your left foot / Now meet my right
It's now or never / More difficult
Those midnight answers / And stray arrows
I don't belong

    I take it, it could mean your following your own path and some "meddles" in it trying to make your veer off from your path just because they want to see you fail..

    It's about the devil who meddles in men's affairs since the time of adam and eve. Always trying to influence mankind into doing wrong.

    I think its about the narrator responding to someone being an obvious meddler, and they've taken advantage of the narrator for too long. So they've decided to finally respond to the meddlers actions.

    Most people give into peer pressure and they think they're so cool, as well as high and mighty. He doesnt do what others do just cuz and gets looked down on because of it. But he doesnt care, he tells em say hello to my right foot.

    Being better than everyone in your life, like a higher being... But not being able to say it for fears of becoming a condecending eliteist.
