Song meaning[edit | edit source]

Sometimes you just want to be alone with your thoughts and have no one around to bother/influence you. This way, you can make up your mind and think about what you'll do next. The narrator might be fed up with everyone trying to force their opinion on him, making him do or think things he doesn't want to.
