Humility Lyrics

Calling the world from isolation
'Cause right now, that's the ball where we're betrayed
And if you're coming back to find me
You'd better have good aim
Shoot it true
I need you in the picture
That's why I'm calling you (calling you)
I'm...

    It’s about Brexit.....he’s saying about how you shouldn’t go through with the isolation meaning the separation from England.

    Well, I think it's about Murdoc and 2d's relationship, from the point of view of 2d. He feels like he needs Murdoc, that now that he's gone it's like something is missing, he looks happy due to the lack of abuse but feels a bit lonely, and one can feel isoleted when lonely too. The being separeted could look like the "friendship" is broken, so he asks to himself if he should try to make it better or just let go and move on.

    Not even about the story really but I take the lyrics as saying, some friendships need to be left in the past if they don’t work out.

    I think it means 2-D misses Murdoc but doesn’t miss the bullying. You can see when he’s happy his eyes are white but they go back to black when he gets tripped near the end

    I agree. For example, Murdoc is in jail and in part of the lyrics it mentions that "I need you in the picture, that's why I'm calling you" which could mean that 2-D is calling out for Murdoc because he needs him "in the picture." It also mentions that he doesn't want isolation. My final agreement is that it says "If I pick it up when I know that it's broken, do I put it back?" which could mean that he knows he is away from Murdoc, but he's not sure if he should forget about him or try to help.

    I think it is about 2-D and Murdoc's relationship. After all, murdoc is in jail. Some supporting evidence is in the lyrics:

    Calling the world from isolation
    'Cause right now, that's the ball where we're betrayed
    And if you're coming back to find me
    You'd better have good aim
    Shoot it true
    I need you in the picture
    That's why I'm calling you (calling you)

    I'm alone between the left hand
    Reset myself and get back on track
    I don't want this isolation
    See the state I'm in now?

    Callin' the hunter with a rifle
    'Cause right now that's the ball where we be chained
    Shoot it true
    I want you in the picture
    That's why I'm calling you (calling you)

    I'm alone between the left hand
    Reset myself and get back on track
    I don't want this isolation
    See the state I'm in now?




    If I pick it up when I know that it's broken
    Do I put it back?
    Or do I head out on to the lonesome track and let you go?

    I'm alone between the left hand
    I dont want this isolation
    See the state I'm in now?
    If I pick it up when I know that it's broken
    Do I put it back?
    Or do I head out on to the lonesome track and let you go?
