"Disappear" as written by Nicholas John Holmes and Gregory John Mackintosh....
In living with a fear of chance,
The chance of fear
The only reason you're awake,
We decrease in size
When burdened with your mind,
But you know escape is to run,

In a constant commotion
When I speak
It's revulsion
Maybe you'll disappear

Recall the past when you were strong,
Those distant days
It seems are now forever gone,
You'll increase desire
To wander and retire,
But you know escape is to run

    General CommentThis is one of the bands most depressing songs musically. There are two characters in the song, one is the person in pain (the burden), the other is the person who takes care. Obviously the burden is becoming too great so disappearing is the only way to escape, since mentally and physically, the burden will always be there

    General CommentThe song is about confronting the power of an abuser and making their terrible power to control the person 'disappear'. However as we heal, we are feeling the need to escape and return to the weakness of whom we were before. The "constant commotion" of our internal thoughts drives us to stop the healing process and escape from the pain. "You'll increase desire to wander and retire" which means that the person will use drugs or drink and then stop, but our feelings will remain leaving us nothing to do except to keep fleeing the pain until it all disappears.
