Everyone has - at one point in their life - been cast as an outsider.
It could be at school, it would be at work - everyone will, at some point, experience a certain degree of alienation.
Which perhaps makes Blair Dunlop's new song so effective. Written from the perspective of a bullied teenager, it casts him as an uncool kid, someone who just doesn't fit in.
Facing the onslaught of bullying, the track builds in intensity until the final twist adds a tragic sense of perspective.
The video for 'Something's Gonna Give Way' brings the story to moving life - watch it now.
