Left Alone
South 59 Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You said you know i got to go, this whole scene makes my evil flow,
You know the truth ill never fit in, this place is a walking talking sin,
And if u it makes u happier, i feel about ten times crappier,
About the things i did, im such a counterfeit,

And we just wont get along, im in a place where i just dont belong
Get out fast, 100 yard dash back to my house, quiet as a mouse
Why have you left me all alone, i just wanted someone to call my own
Where are my friends when i need them most, im buried in the sand on the galveston coast

Why cant i get outta this stupid place, the only thing im doing is losing face, theyre all so bouncing around the room, and im smelling the dungeon of doom,(corny i know)
These are a bunch of human clones, with their ears attached to cell phones,
Shes actually sitting in his lap and my minds about to snap





Please just let me go home

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to South 59's song Left Alone depict the singer's feelings of isolation and alienation in a scene that he finds suffocating and corrupted. He admits that he doesn't fit in and feels like a "counterfeit" amidst people who are "human clones" and have "their ears attached to cell phones." The song suggests that the singer has made some mistakes and feels guilty about them, hence the line "About the things I did, I'm such a counterfeit." He decides to distance himself from the scene and make a quick escape back to his house, hoping to find some solace.


Despite his efforts to escape, he finds himself alone and unloved in this new world. He questions where his friends are and why he cannot find someone to call his own. The singer is struggling with the reality of being in a place where he does not belong and with the consequences of his actions. He is frustrated with his inability to leave this "stupid place" and is feeling further ostracized when he sees others around him enjoying their lives while he's caught up in his guilt and feelings of worthlessness.


The song captures the essence of loneliness and the pain of feeling disconnected from the world around us. The singer's feelings are relatable and universal, and many people have been in similar situations. The lyrics provide a heartfelt and powerful insight into the real emotions of someone who is struggling to fit into a world that seems incompatible with their personality and values.
