Video lyrics for round here

This song for me is about my family. And me about 7 years agoj.

“Step out the front door like a ghost into the fog where no one notices the contrast of white on white.”

This is about when I would walk around outside at night for hours, without telling anyone. I’m invisible (A ghost in the fog). No one knows I do this.

“And in between the moon and you the angels get a better view of the crumbling difference between wrong and right.”

“I’m outside walking with the moon. I’m struggeling with decisions I have to make. Fictional characters (angels) have a better clue than I do”

I walk in the air between the rain through myself and back again Where? I don’t know

“I’m wandering around. “Through myself and back again” refers to reflection (thinking about what I’m thinking). “Where I don’t know”. I still don’t have a clue.

Maria says she’s dying through the door I hear her crying Why? I don’t know “This is my younger sister when she was 16. She’s suicidal. She doesn’t tell me this but “I can hear it through the door”. I don’t know why she’s suicidal. She won’t tell me.

Chorus “Round here we always stand up straight Round here something radiates”

My family. “Always stands up straight”. They are proud.

Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand she said she’d like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis she walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land just like she’s walking on a wire in the circus

“My sister. She has big (unrealistic) dreams at this time. She’s looking for the perfect boy. She feels like she’s walking on a wire” because she is a “performer/actor” in a circus “her friends are all performers just like her”.

she parks her car outside of my house takes her clothes off says she’s close to understanding Jesus

“she comes to me alone and opens up (takes her clothes off) and tells me she’s close to understanding Jesus. She’s knows she doesn’t, but she’s trying”

she knows she’s just a little misunderstood she has trouble acting normal when she’s nervous

“people don’t understand her”

Chorus Round here we’re carving out our names “My family. Everyone’s trying to make a name for themselves. To prove something. To set outselves apart”

Round here we all look the same “But we’re really just all the same. “

Round here we talk just like lions “We’re bigmouthes and act like we don’t care about each other. Notice it says “talk” not “do”. We’re acting like we’re tough and don’t need each other. This is especially true with my sister and I”

But we sacrifice like lambs

“But in reality we would do anything for the other person. We just don’t say so”

Round here she’s slipping through my hands “I’m not getting through to her”

Sleeping children better run like the wind out of the lightning dream “Sleeping refers to unaware. Unconscious. In a dream with very real danger. She, my sister, better get herself out of this situation that she is unaware is going to hurt her”

Mama’s little baby better get herself in out of the lightning “She needs to get out of this situation”

She says It’s only in my head She says Shhh I know it’s only in my head

“She does think the danger is real”

But the girl in car in the parking lot says “Man you should try to take a shot can’t you see my walls are crumbling?”

“This is a friend that has issues like her dragging her into alcoholism”

Then she looks up at the building and says she’s thinking of jumping She says she’s tired of life she must be tired of something

“Now that she’s an alcoholic, she’s more suicidal than ever. I still don’t know why so I say as a question, “she must be tired of something?”.

Round here she’s always on my mind (self-explanatory)

Round here hey man got lots of time “I’ve got lot’s of time to think”

Round here we’re never sent to bed early And nobody makes us wait Round here we stay up very, very, very, very late

“This refers to how how we can’t sleep because we’re always thinking. Therefore we stay of very, very late”.
