I believe it's time for me to be famous,
And out of place.
I believe it's time for me to move forward,
When I break through.

This time I'll make you,

Proud to see me over, come on day light.

Proud of, who you raised.

Your shelter, your peacefulness.

So this time I'll make you proud.

Proud of who you raised up.
You know that I will
Always be here till' the end

Come back so I can say thank you for this,
Home cooked meals and a place to rest,
My troubled head when you're away
I've passed the test, I've earned an A,
Not just in school, but in life,
You'll always be right by my side.
To help me show, hope to all,
That are lost and sick in this dying world.
I'll use the love you left behind,
I'll change their minds, I'll change their minds.

I hope, I hope you smile,
When you look down on me
I hope you smile.

This can't,
We won't know.
I hope that I make you proud.

This is not what it is, only baby scars.
I need your love like a boy needs his mother's side.
This is not what it is, only baby scars.
I need your love like a boy needs his mother's side.

This is not what it is, only baby scars.
I need your love like a boy needs his mother's side, Yeah.

    This song is not only for Austin to thank his mother but also to show others to either appreciate what they have, to recognize everything a mother does for her kids. Austin lost his mother at 17 and this is his song to tell her he loves her and he will make her proud.

    Listening to this song brings me to tears, not only because of how Austin felt, because of the meaning behind it.
    So many people out there can relate to this song, because of the lyrics.
    Watching the Warped Tour and seeing him cry, broke me down. I had shed a thousand tears just to think how he felt in front of thousands of people.
    Of Mice & Men is a great band! All their songs have meaningful lyrics that are amazing.
    Regardless of all rumors, all OM&M fans love them, and i couldnt see why they wouldnt!

    Austin, the screamer, had lost his mother when he was 17 years old. Thats the true meaning. My meaning is, i just want to make my father proud of me. He says he is but i don't feel like he ever is. Like no matter what i do it's not good enough

    It is about his mother. She passed away and he wants her to come back to show her how good he is doing in life. He wants to make her proud. Which i am sure she is proud of him because she is looking down on him. And he is also thanking her for all she did for him. And saying that he loves her. And is grateful for her.

    Austin carlile, the lead singer, wrote it about his mom who died when he was 17 from a heart condition (marfan syndrome). She passed away at sebring court on the corner of 2nd street, which is where the song name came from. His mom was a very important person in his live and they were very close so he wrote this song in her memory.
