"Fader" as written by Gregory John Mackintosh and Nicholas John Holmes....
It's in my heart
It's in your soul
You choose to judge
Is that your role?

Don't analyze or complicate
You'll criticize
You can't relate
And now you want
Some understanding

What's my point of view?

Then I'll just fade away
When I hear all your lies
I choke
Then I'll just fade away
Suffering from the times you spoke
I fade

Regarding more?
Just seems much less
So cynical you must confess
I'm dying here
Completely blind
Your will to live
Just dampens mine
And now you want
Some understanding
What's my point of view?

Then I'll just fade away
When I hear all your lies
I choke
Then I'll just fade away
Suffering from the times you spoke
I fade

    General CommentThis song may relate to the music industry threatening to kill off the band. Their previous album, Host, was a commercial failure and Paradise Lost owed EMI a million pounds by the time they were finished. This time around, their label assumed control of Paradise Lost's music and mixed it in such a way to make it appeal to a broader audience. This song is the embodiment of the band's struggle to exist in such a turbulent environment (Believe in Nothing was leaked on the internet 2 weeks prior to release). The line "suffering from the times you spoke" may refer to critics' negative impact on the band's well-being. All this gave reason for an established band like PL to fade out of existence.
