"Asthmatic" as written by Thomas Decker, Robert Garcia, Jonathan Santos and Soren Sarkisyan....
It starts to tear me down
Destroyed by what I create
It left the nerve exposed
Feels like a lost cause
Frustration's all I have left
It's what reduced me to this
Turned me against myself
It's still a lost cause

I can't keep doing this to myself
But it's the only way to forget who I am

Your disability
Kept pushing me away
It went beneath what's so real to me
And threw it all away
I underestimated
The lengths that you would have gone
To deny who you are
You threw it all away

I will keep doing this to myself

'Cause it's the only way to forget who I am

I never wanted your help
I never needed your help

This failure has to be all mine all mine now
I'll turn my back on myself
If it's my only way out
It can only help me if it hurts

I won't give into, I won't give into...
I won't become one with your lies

I never wanted your help
I never needed your help
This failure has to be all mine all mine now
I'll turn my back on myself
If it's my only way out
I'm too tired to feel anything anyway

I will keep doing this to myself
'Cause it's the only way to forget who I am

I never wanted your help
I never needed your help
This failure has to be all mine all mine now
I'll turn my back on myself
If it's my only way out
I'm too tired to feel anything anyway

I have become one with your lies

    this song.. as well as a lot of this album, is about someone who abondoned him and left him with nothing but lies and a sense of failure. he has nowhere else to turn and the pain is slowly numbing him to the point of hostile apathy.

    General Commentsounds kind of like using alcohol or drugs to escape a problem, "I'll keep doing this to myself
    'cause it's the only way to forget who I am"

    Kind of makes you think about alcohol or maybe a drug of some sort. I guess it's just a bout a failed relationship that led to drugs.

    General CommentThis song is about a relationship that was about drugs and alcohol. Then the girl stopped doing drugs and alcohol then they broke up.

    "It starts to tear me down
    Destroyed by what I create"
    The relationship ending hit him really hard

    "It left the nerve exposed
    Feels like a lost cause"
    She was a major part of his life and breaking up feels like all that time was waisted

    "Frustration's all I have left
    It's what reduced me to this"
    He's really angry, and he continues to do drugs and alcohol.

    "Turned me against myself
    It's still a lost cause"
    Doesn't know if he can trust anyone anymore and doesn't beleive his life to be worth anything.

    Thats just my thoughts

    Really one of the bands I love the most.
