"Monachetti" as written by Christopher Andrew Carrabba, Chad J. Neptune, Steve Kleiseth, Nicolau Bonifacio Dominguez and Joshua E. Colbert....
The paddle is broken,
The punishment
Is served in full.
The welts are faded
And pain still lingers
As it should.
The lone receiver
Of empty compliments
Taken in
And bought in full.
The lesson's hammered
The message has been
Reinforced.

[Chorus:]
You said there would not be
Any reason
To fear this world.
But you're the reason
You're the reason
I feel
Broken,
And branded,
And burning with doubt.

The welts are faded
And the pain still lingers
As it should.

These things are dealt in increments.
Constant, and laced with detriment.
How dare you ever feign surprise.
When all those fingers point inside.
They're piercing you.

[Chorus]
You said there would not be
Any reason
To fear this world.
But you're the reason
You're the reason
I feel
Broken,
And branded,
And burning with doubt.

These things are dealt in increments.

    General Commentthe lyrics of this song can be taken literally and/or metaphorically. to me it has a deep meaning,

    "the paddle's broken the punishment is served in full
    the welts are faded the pain still lingers as it should
    the lone receiver" when i first read the lyrics to this song i was like whoa, he's talking about someone getting hurt by someone else( to me it was a father vs. daughter, or an abusive family situation because of personal issues i have, it could also be looked at like a relationship gone bad, or something else)

    and then going for help to someone close, someone they love, and hearing that what's happening is really nothing "you said there would not be any reason to fear this world"
    And now the person is really emotionally scarred and confussed because now he/she is thinking that he/she is weird, or that it's their fault, or maybe that what is happening isnt really happening, or maybe that something is wrong with them, a kind of if i was more or less of this then maybe it wouldn't have happened type of thinking, "I feel broken branded burning with doubt"

    and the fact that what has happened hasn't stopped "these things are dealt in increments"

    i dunno, it's a great song, musically and lyrically. I give major credit to FSF, go them lol

    General Commentdid you know that Monachetti is the last name of a guy they know [knew]? the song isnt written about him, but it is named after him because "a guy who works 20 hours a day, 7 days a week deserves to have a song named after him even if it isnt about him," once said Chris at a show.

    General CommentChris Carabba is the most emotional songwriter ever. Between Dashboard, Vacant Andys, and Further no emotion is left untouched. I can relate with this song, because I know what it's like to have the one person who you placed all your trust in be the very source of your anguish.
