"Powder" as written by Benjamin Eric Harper, William Ryan Key, Peter Michael Mosely, Longineu Warren Iii Parsons and Sean Michael Wellman-mackin....
Lying soaked in sweat tonight,
Your knuckles white,
you try to fight,
The need for more to get you by,
You've had enough,
You wonder why,
Even now your body cries,
For chemicals to blind your eyes,
Wonder can you stay this high,
When the cells begin to die
Forever, Forever, Forever,

Crush it up, crush it up,
Take it down, take it down,
Smash it up, Smash it up,
Falling Down

Swallowed like the medicine,
That's broken down my happy friend,
Wonder if he'll let me in,
When I come to see him when,
He's Better, Better, Better,
No

Crush it up, crush it up,
Take it down, take it down,
Smash it up, smash it up,
Falling down

Crush it up, crush it up,
Take it down, take it down,
Smash it up, smash it up,
Falling down

There's power,
In the powder,
Dissolving in your guts

There's power,
In the powder,
Dissolving in your guts

Crush it up, crush it up,
Take it down, take it down,
Smash it up, smash it up,
Falling down

Crush it up, crush it up,
Take it down, take it down,
Smash it up, smash it up,
Falling down

(I'm Falling) Crush it up, crush it up,
(I'm Falling) Take it down, take it down,
(I'm Falling) Smash it up, smash it up,
Falling Down

(I'm Falling) Crush it up, crush it up,
(I'm Falling) Take it down, take it down,
(I'm Falling) Smash it up, smash it up,
Falling Down

Falling,
I'm falling,
I'm falling,
I'm falling down

    General CommentI like this alot ... I never get tired/bored of it. I fell in love with them (Yellowcard) when I seen the video for "Ocean Avenue" . The video is great and goes along with the song well. I love the violin (sp?) too. They're just a great band .... gotta love 'em!

    General CommentAwesome, extremely melodic song. A song about drug addiction and the subsequent fall from grace that comes from substance abuse. Ryan from Yellowcard prefaces this song live by saying that it's about "Oxycoton".

    General CommentI was thinking the same thing XxPoisonTheWellxX was thinking...perhaps this is a drug song? But, I still love Yellowcard...they put on a great show.
