Songfacts®:

  • This song is rather cryptic and abstract. It is difficult to find a solid meaning to it, but it looks like "Cast It Out" is about someone experiencing a loss. Most lines in the chorus would support this theory. The song's bridge supports it even further, as it may be referring to the pattern of human beings always coming closer together during a time of loss. >>
