Please speak softly, for they will hear us
And they'll find out, why we don't trust them
Speak up dear, 'cause I cannot hear you

I need to know, why we don't trust them

Explain to me, this conspiracy against me, yeah
And tell me how, I lost my power, oh, yeah

Where can I turn, 'cause I need something more
Surrounded by uncertainty, I'm so unsure
Tell me why, I feel so alone
'Cause I need to know, to whom do I owe

Explain to me, this conspiracy against me, yeah
And tell me how, I lost my power, oh, yeah

I thought that we'd make it
Because you said that we'd make it through
And when all security fails we'd be there
To help me through

Explain to me, this conspiracy against me, yeah
And tell me how, I lost my power, oh
(I've lost my power)

    I think she's trying to tell people that her inner strength is not strong enough to hold on to her problems and she needs someone to be there for her, also she would need something more so she could control her feelings and actions.

    I think it talks about just some girl she knew. "please speak softly for they will hear us
    and they'll find out why we don't trust them"
    means that she feels paranoid about the situation, like nothing has been working out for her lately so it seems like everyone is against her. This is the girl saying to herself that she needs to be quiet or that the people against her will hear. "speak up dear, cause i cannot hear you
    i need to know why we don't trust them. "
    this line is haley or a friend who's confused about why they can't speak or else they will hear them. The chorus is about the girl explaining to the "friend" about the reason for these people being "against" her. She also asks the friend why these things are happening to her in the world. "where can i turn, cause i need something more
    surrounded by uncertainty, i'm so unsure"
    the girl is asking the friend what to do because she's not sure about it. "tell me why i feel so alone, cause i need to know
    to whom do i owe"
    the girl is asking the friend again about why she feels alone, because if it's not the people against her, then who is it? She needs to "thank" these people, which is actually sarcasm because she really wants to hate them forever. "i thought that we'd make it
    because you said that we'd make it through"
    this is the girl telling the friend that she trusted her about this, but the promise wasn't kept. "and when all security fails
    will you be there to help me through"
    this is the girl asking the friend for her help.

    shes talking about how she was very lost when she was younger (because of her parent's relationship problems) and many people promised that they would help her, but never did and she had to do it herself, resolving in a lot of pain and rejection
