Staind – Outside lyrics

And you can bring me to my knees again
All the times, that I could beg you please, in vain
All the times, that I felt insecure, for you
And I leave my burdens at the door

But I'm on the outside
I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
'Cause inside you're ugly
You're ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

All the times that I felt like this won't end
It's for you
And I tasted what I could never have
It was from you
All the times that I've cried, my intentions, full of pride
But I waste more time than anyone

But I'm on the outside
I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
'Cause inside you're ugly
You're ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

All the times that I've cried
All this wasted, it's all inside
And I feel, all this pain, stuffed it down
It's back again
And I lie here in bed, all alone, I can't mend
But I feel tomorrow will be okay

But I'm on the outside
I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
'Cause inside you're ugly
You're ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

    This song is explaining and showing the complete mental breakdown of a battered man. He was in a relationship that he thought there was mutual love in, though one sought it and the other sought to burn it down. He tried and tried to show love an affection, just so she could see how love truely works. But everytime he made some sort of progression into gaining that true love, he just wound up back at square one, hurt more than the last time. He worked as hard as he could for as long as he could but wound up leaving her, still with that mental abuse fresh in his head. He sees himself as a failure, ugly in his own appearence, and saying that she herself is the creator of that product, meaning she is just as ugly as she made him.

    I think its about a kid who so wanted his father to love him but saw how he really was inside the family home and not in public to where someone else could see. The father was a hero to everyone else but the kid saw how he and his mother were treated and if the kid acted up then the mother received the aftermath. This makes the kid a downtrotted youth and therefore "ugly" soul and the kid can finally see that the father has the same exact soul.

    I think this song is about how someone always brought him down all the time and always hated that so he would do that to other people just so he can get the pain out of him and then when he finally leaves the person who do that to him he see what he turn into he like that person and hes sorry for what ever he did do thoese people.
