Lyrics

Album version

Feeling like a loser, feeling like a bum
Sitting on the outside, observing the fun
Don't get on my bad side, I can work a gun
Now hop into the back seat baby, I'll show you some fun

These people are weird in here
And they're giving me the fear
Just because you know my name
Doesn't mean you know my game
I look myself in the face
And whisper "I'm in the wrong place"
Is there more to lose than gain
If I go on my own again?

On my own again
Inside the outsider (On my own again)
Inside the outsider (On my own again)
Inside the outsider (On my own again), inside

People are connecting, don't know what to say
I'm good at protecting what they wanna take
Spilt the milk at breakfast, hit me double hard
And I grinned at you softly 'cause I'm a fucking wildcard

These people are weird in here
And they're giving me the fear
Just because you know my name
Doesn't mean you know my game
I look myself in the face
And whisper "I'm in the wrong place"
Is there more to lose than gain
If I go on my own again?

On my own again
Inside the outsider (On my own again)
Inside the outsider (On my own again)
Inside the outsider (On my own again)
Inside (Again, again)

Ohh ohh ohh ohhh, ohh ohh ohh ohhh (Inside)

All I know is I cannot pretend
So I'm sitting on the outside again (Inside)

On my own again
Inside the outsider (On my own again)
Inside the outsider (On my own again)
Inside the outsider (On my own again)
Inside (Again, again)

On my own again
Inside the outsider (On my own again)
Inside the outsider (On my own again)
Inside the outsider (On my own again)
Inside (Again)

Inside, again, inside, again
Inside, again, inside, again

Demo version

Feeling like a loser, feeling like a bum
Sitting on the outside observing the fun
Don't get on my bad side, I can work a gun
Hop into the backseat baby, I'll show you some fun

All I know is that I can not pretend
I'm sitting on the outside again
I ain't got the energy to blend
so I'm sitting on the outside again

These people are weird in here
And they're giving me the fear
Just because you know my name
Doesn't mean you know my game
I look myself in the face
And whisper "I'm in the wrong place"
Is there more to lose than gain
If I go on my own again?

On my own again
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside...

People are connecting, don't know what to say
I'm good at protecting what they wanna take
Spilt the milk at breakfast, hit me double hard
And I grinned at you softly 'cause I'm a fucking wild card

All I know is that I can not pretend
I'm sitting on the outside again
I ain't got the energy to blend
so I'm sitting on the outside again

These people are weird in here
And they're giving me the fear
Just because you know my name
Doesn't mean you know my game
I look myself in the face
And whisper "I'm in the wrong place"
Is there more to lose than gain
If I go on my own again?

On my own again
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside...

Smart, dumb
Dull, fun
Fat, thin
Lose, win
Smart, dumb
Dull, fun
Fat, thin
Lose, win, win

On my own again
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside (again)
On my own again
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside

Inside (again)
Inside (again)
Inside (again)
Inside (again)
