Otherside Lyrics

I been waiting wide awake for the waves to come and take
Take me right to you
One hundred bottles of the good shit couldn't even bring you back
What am I to do?
Feel like I'm circlin' a drain
All I see is the remains of an ugly truth

    It’s about when he lost his best friend to addiction and calls it an ugly truth he is faced with the reality of his death. He is losing hope even when he calls out to God. He is wanting God to take his life. He Thinks of his friend who died of addiction reminds him of an ugly truth when it comes to his Very own addictions “100 bottles of denial” won’t bring you back what am I to do? He is in denial of his own addictions. He wants to know if his friend is in Heaven or hell. He asks God If will He save him. All too real. I love you Posty. Great song.

    the whole vibe the song gave off was like post either lost or searched for something. and there was stages of grief denial, anger, and acceptance at the end but it was clear he still wasn’t done searching. it could be a girl, himself, or something more spiritual, like a lost ghost or soul. but the whole song sounds paranormal, something from another world.

    It's about a girl that probably lost her life because of a reckless mistake of theirs. He has lost all hope in God. And has being waiting to be reunited with her.

    It’s about a girl he met on the beach long ago, then lost touch. He can’t get her out of his mind. He’s desperate to find her but realizes that it’s impossible so he’s hoping the waves will wash her to shore in his dreams. He knows that she too is out there wondering where he is. Will you save us means that he wants her to find him, because he feels like they are meant for eachother. They are. They both felt like something was missing. It was each other.

    she couldn’t put up with all the fame he was getting. she felt as if she wasn’t as needed anymore. he found love in this one girl and has gone blind to how she’s feeling on the inside. he doesn’t want to lose her. he feels as if she doesn’t love him anymore, when actually she loves him more than anything. he would do anything for her she just wasn’t up for it in the moment

    Its about losing faith in love: feel like they’re about to break up and his trying not to let her go. Posty’s surrounded of many girls but he only wants one, but that special one is tired of trying so hard to be with him. What he tries to say with “are you on the other side? Will you save us? Or will you run away?” is about his girlfriend being the only one who can decide to quit this lifestyle whenever she wants and not having all this rockstar drama over her And his wishing that she would go back and save him from all his demons. She has the freedom to just get out of his life (been on the other side) but at the same time he don’t want to leave him

    It's either about God or about a girl. It mentions about prayers- God. It mentions about run away- girl.

    Someone he loved died. And he’s unsure about his faith.
