  • Lyrics
  • This song is about kids in school who want to change themselves to fit in, but don't realize what they're losing because of it. The line, "I won't be burned by the reflection of the fire in your eyes as you're staring at the sun," means, "Don't think I'm going to change to adapt to you while you're changing/hurting/losing yourself - I liked you as you were." >>

  • This was used on the (no longer available) channel "Game Network." It was used during the slot entitled "Game Clip where various Video Games would be shown to music," where it was used in between each game. The only lyric heard was "As you're staring at the sun." >>
