  • Chris from Liverpool, NyI believe this song deals with society and how everyone wants to be someone else to fit in. How, people can have everything going for them and just throw it away to be someone their not.
  • Sirius from El Paso, TxThis song deals with people who resort to vanity and superficial beauty to feel more accepted, only to still find themselves lonely because their personalities contradict their glamorous outer shell.
