The Outsider is a song from A Perfect Circle's second album, Thirteenth Step. It uses a mix of 6/8 and 4/4 time signatures. Two remixes of "The Outsider" were made for aMOTION.

Danny Lohner's "Apocalypse mix", on the other hand, takes the opposite direction, making a darker, heavier version that starts as an ambient doomscape and ends in a way that resembles a music-playback program crashing. The latter version was included in the soundtrack to the movie Resident Evil: Apocalypse under the title "Resident Renholder mix" and was also included on the Prison Break soundtrack under title "Apocalypse mix". The "Resident Renholder Mix" of the song was featured in the premiere trailer for Resident Evil: Afterlife. It is also featured in the film itself, during the Alice vs. Albert Wesker battle and the ending credits. The song is also featured in the video game Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock.

The Outsider - A Perfect Circle

Help me if you can.
It's just that this..
Is not the way I'm wired
So could you please help me understand
Why you're giving in to all these reckless dark desires?

You're...
Lying to yourself again.
Suicidal imbecile,
Think about it, put it on a fault line.
What'll it take to get it through to you precious?
I'm Over This. Why do you wanna throw it away like this?
Such a mess.
Why would I want to watch you
Disconnect and self-destruct one bullet at a time.
What's your rush now?
Everyone will have his day to die.

Medicated drama queen.
Picture-perfect numb belligerence.
Narcissistic drama queen.
Craving fame and all it's decadence.

Lying through your teeth again.
Suicidal imbecile, think about...
Put it on the fault line.
What'll it take to get it through to you precious?
I'm Over This. Why do you wanna throw it away like this?
Such a mess.
Why would I want to watch you
Disconnect and self-destruct one bullet at a time?
What's your rush now?
Everyone will have his day to die.

They were right about you.
They were right about you.

Lying to my face again
Suicidal imbecile
Think about it, put it on a fault line

What'll it take to get it through to you precious?
I'm Over This. Why do you wanna throw it away like this?
Such a mess.
Over this... Over this!!!

Disconnect and self-destruct one bullet at a time.
What's your hurry, everyone will have his day to die.
If you chose to pull the trigger, should your drama prove sincere
Do it somewhere far away from here.
