Staind - Outside

Song

"Outside" is a song by the American alternative metal band Staind. It was released in May 2001 as the second single from their second album Break the Cycle.

Background

"Outside" was originally performed live during the 1999 Family Values Tour in Biloxi, Mississippi, with Aaron Lewis (vocals and guitar) on the stage by himself and Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst providing backing vocals. Lewis was asked to perform a song solo and he decided at the last moment to play a song he had been working on since the early days of Staind. He finished the lyrics to "Outside" on the spot while singing the song live.

"It's really an accidental phenomenon," Lewis explains. "I've been playing it for quite some time. In the early days of the band, any money we made went back into the band, so two or three times a week I played acoustically to make money to live off. 'Outside' was one of the songs I played, but it wasn't really finished, so I made up different words every time. We almost put it on Dysfunction. Then, one night on the Family Values Tour, ten minutes before going onstage, we decided to do it. There was never any thought of releasing it this way."

In many ways, the buzz generated by the live version of "Outside" provided the perfect bridge between Staind's major label debut Dysfunction and their breakthrough follow up, Break the Cycle, introducing new fans to the band just a few months before Break the Cycle was released. "Outside" also showed a much softer side of Lewis and Staind that would be explored further in Break the Cycle and would also fully replace their original nu metal sound on 14 Shades of Grey.

Live Success

The studio version managed to have moderate success due to the popularity of both the acoustic live performance and their breakthrough hit, "It's Been Awhile". The studio recorded version peaked number 11 on the US Mainstream Rock Tracks and number 16 on the Modern Rock Tracks charts but it failed to be a pop hit like the live acoustic version or "It's Been Awhile".

Music video

music video was released for the original live performance of the song which, on its release, had frequent play on MTV2. The studio-recorded electric version of the song had a music video as well, but perhaps received less attention than its acoustic predecessor.


Album

Break the Cycle is the third studio album by American rock band Staind, released through Elektra Entertainment and Flip Records in 2001. It is Staind's most successful album to date, and was the album that broke them into the mainstream.


Break the Cycle è il terzo album in studio della rock band Staind, inciso per la Flip/Elektra e pubblicato il 22 maggio 2001. Rispetto ai dischi precedenti, più crudi, si denota una maggiore attenzione alla melodia senza però dimenticare le proprie radici, ed è attualmente il loro album più venduto.

Il primo singolo estratto dall'album è It's Been Awhile, destinato a diventare una delle canzoni di maggior successo nella storia delle classifiche rock americane, essendo stata n. 1 sia nella Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks che nella Alternative Songs per, rispettivamente, ben 20 e 16 settimane. Tuttavia sarà il secondo singolo, la struggente Outside, a diventare il vero e proprio inno della band.

Oltre alla versione originale, ne esiste un celeberrimo duetto acustico live (con tanto di videoclip) tra Aaron Lewis e Fred Durst dei Limp Bizkit (che in realtà appare solo nel ritornello conclusivo), inclusa in seguito nelle edizioni europee e australiane dell'album.

Seguono i singoli Fade e For You, quest'ultimo decisamente vicino alle ritmiche più dure e serrate degli esordi. Quinto e ultimo singolo dell'album è la ballata acustica Epiphany, il cui video è stato girato da Fred Durst.


Artist

Staind (/stnd/ STAYND) is an American alternative rock band formed in 1995. The original lineup consisted of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Aaron Lewis, lead guitarist Mike Mushok, bassist and backing vocalist Johnny April, and drummer Jon Wysocki.

The band's activity became more sporadic after their self-titled release, with Lewis pursuing a solo country music career and Mushok subsequently joining the band Saint Asonia, but they have continued to tour on and off in the following years. As of 2016, Lewis has reiterated that the band has not broken up, and will possibly create another album, but that his current focus is on his solo career.

Staind most recently performed live in 2017, and as of 2018, they are on hiatus.


Gli Staind sono un gruppo musicale post-grunge statunitense, formatosi a Springfield nel 1993. Hanno raggiunto grande notorietà grazie ai loro album pluripremiati nelle classifiche di vendita, in particolare Dysfunction e Break the Cycle, le cui vendite li hanno portati a vincere rispettivamente 2 e 5 dischi di platino.

Dal 2012 sono praticamente fermi, il cantante e leader Aaron Lewis si dedica a dischi country e hanno suonato solo per particolari eventi nel 2014 e 2017. Nonostante ciò la band non è ufficialmente sciolta.

Lyrics

And you
Can bring me to my knees
Again
All the times
That I could beg you please
In vain
All the times
That I felt insecure
For you
And I leave
My burdens at the door

But I’m on the outside
I’m looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
‘Cause inside you’re ugly
You’re ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

All the times
That I felt like this won’t end
It’s for you
And I taste
What I could never have
It was from you
All the times
That I’ve cried
My intentions
Full of pride
But I waste
More time than anyone

But I’m on the outside
And I’m looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
‘Cause inside you’re ugly
You’re ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

All the times
That I’ve cried
All this wasted
It’s all inside
And I feel
All this pain
Stuffed it down
It’s back again
And I lie
Here in bed
All alone
I can’t mend
But I feel
Tomorrow will be OK

But I’m on the outside
And I’m looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
‘Cause inside you’re ugly
You’re ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

Testo

E tu
Puoi mettermi in ginocchio?
Ancora
Tutto il tempo
Così potrò lodarti, per favore
Invano
Tutto il tempo
Così mi sentirò insicuro
Per te
E lascio
I miei oneri sulla porta

Ma sono all’esterno
Guardo dentro
Posso vederti attraverso
Vedere i tuoi veri colori
Perché dentro sei brutto
Sei brutto come me
Posso vederti attraverso
Vedere il vero te

Tutto il tempo
Così mi sentirò come se questo non finisse
É per te
E gusto
Cosa non potrò mai avere
Era da te
Tutto il tempo
Che ho pianto
Le mie intenzioni
Piene di orgoglio
Ma ho sprecato
Più tempo di chiunque altro

Ma sono all’esterno
Guardo dentro
Posso vederti attraverso
Vedere i tuoi veri colori
Perché dentro sei brutto
Sei brutto come me
Posso vederti attraverso
Vedere il vero te

Tutto il tempo
Che ho pianto
Tutto questo sprecato
É tutto dentro
E sento
Tutto questo dolore
Farcito dentro
É tornato di nuovo
Ed ho mentito
Qui a letto
Tutto solo
Non posso riparare
Ma mi sento
Domani andrà bene

Ma sono all’esterno
Guardo dentro
Posso vederti attraverso
Vedere i tuoi veri colori
Perché dentro sei brutto
Sei brutto come me
Posso vederti attraverso
Vedere il vero te
