Change Your Mind Lyrics

Don't solve the problem,
when danger is better.
Far away where you stock them
In cages that tether

And all the bridges you've burned,
leave you trapped off at all sides.
And now the tables do turn,
and it's all gone, what's left for...

    i think this song is about giving things a chance and just seeing how things work out rather than changing your mind before you have the chance to see what things could be like and just to take a chance one in a while

    I think many people struggle in finding the meaning of this song because they don't see it for its simplicity. It is simply saying don't give up on yourself. You are the only thing holding your self back/down is you. Keep Trucking.

    My personal interpretation of this song is that they are addressing a person with little self confidence. I think the "doubt" and "those thoughts" are refering to doubts in yourself. It seems the persons lack of confidence causes them to give up on things because they don't believe they can do it. The song is urging them not to give up, "drop those thoughts behind you" and things will happen for you

    Um, I think this song is saying that that someone, or everyone, is trying to give up too easily, and that they need to stick it out no matter what. And the "change your mind" thing is saying, change your mind away from the easy way. It'll be better if you stick it out. It will be more worth it.

    In my opinion, it's hard to tell what this song means. Maybe it would be easier if there was a video for it. Anyways, I see it as saying that when you're having a difficult time, you shouldn't let it crash your world. Also, that during these hard times, you shouldn't just give up and run away from your problems. And finally, that you should never doubt yourself no matter what's going on.I don't really know, that's just what I see. If anyone has a video please paste a link!

    I think that this song is about someone who is an out cast at their own doing. They are not nice, but once were a friend.
