This song hints on the idea that an individual person is so insignificant that his or her own purpose in life is meaningless. The world is cruel and cold, sometimes the only way to get by is to be an anonymous being - to be insignificant and detached. But this approach to living has one major flaw: everything begins to seem insignificant - "the problem is, you're just like me." When you detach yourself in order to become anonymous, life becomes dull. At the end of the song, Gontier sings, "the worst part is looking back and knowing that I was wrong." Being anonymous is not the solution to living in world with no conscience. Even the most inconspicuous person can make a difference.

Basically, what I got out of it (and I'm only a teen so don't make fun of me if I'm wrong) is there's this guy that has a person in his life that's trying to hide themselves away from everything/everyone. This guy is trying to let them know that he's there, and doesn't want them to hide away from him, and run off. He wants to be their cushion. He sees the real them, even when the person is lost in their lives and all that. He doesn't want to lose this person.
