I'm tired of having to lie to people, to cover up that I have depression.
2:10 PM I'm tired of having to explain my situation to people who have no idea what it is like to have depression or who don't even sympathize with it at all.
  I'm tired of having to make up excuses for the reason why I haven't done things I should be doing or why my life isn't on track!!
  I'm so tired of it all!

somebody that I used to know

To me, this song is about clinging onto an illusion of the perfect person, the 'person that you used to know'. After discovering that you had in fact put them on a pedastal, and that they never were that perfect person, you are still unable to let them go because your illusions clash with reality and it is a never ending struggle between accepting who they are- and who you thought they were.


"You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know..."


It is about that tiny little fibre in your body that cannot erase the memory of them, and that tiny little fibre is what causes most of the conflict: your voice speaks and says that you would never be hung up over this person, and yet, the entire song is dedicated to the memory of that person and the damage they have caused you. so you ARE, after all, hung up on them...and that is the contrast between your voice (voice of reason) and your heart (with which your true feelings lie)....I think that might be why there is such a huge play on body parts in the video clip...and how each body part is colored differently...it represents all the different thoughts in your mind that are contradicting each other.

I see the change, I see the message.
and no message could have been any clearer.
so I'm starting with the man in the mirror.
