Boy in the Bubble Lyrics

It was 6:48 I was walking home
Stepped to the gate and I’m all alone
I had chicken on the plate but the food was cold
Then I covered up my face so that no one knows
I didn’t want trouble
I’m the boy in the bubble
But then came trouble
When...

    I think that this could be interpreted differently but at it's core, 'boy in the bubble' is about a kid who is getting bullied and feels alone hence the line'I'm the boy in the bubble'. The bullied kid understands why his bully does what he does. The bully has a troubled home life and has to deal with an alcoholic abusive father and takes this out on the kid. The kid is in his own bubble and is trying to stay out of trouble but the bully keeps on trying to pop it. This is just my interpretation. Everyone can interpret it differently.

    This song is very deep with meaning to me, and it’s like Alec Benjamin was the boy in the bubble that is trying to be closed and protected in the bubble, and a bully is trying to pop it, but Alec understands what the bully is dealing with.

    This song clearly means that a boy got into a fight and he could understand the bullies point of view, his father was a heavy drinker so the bully had a lot to deal with at home. But I think the main point of this song is (1) Think beyond the situation like the dad heavily drinking, (2) and Don't bully, and if your getting bullied..... Don't fight back, maybe try to defuse the situation.

    I think it means that a kid was getting bullied and he forgave the person because he understood the why the bully was bulling

    A good song saying DON'T BEAT UP KIDS and how he accepted the bullying and understood the kids problem

    My interpretation is that this song kinda represents me because I have a lot going on at home but I take it out on kids at school and it gives me a satisfaction but not them. I'am the one to suffer because YOU know that you did something wrong. If the bully is going through a lot at home all you can do is be nice to them instead of giving them another reason to get in trouble at home.
