"The Deep" as written by and Chad/peake Kroeger....
You'll be a wolf devoured by a lion cause you look like a lamb but baptized in fire fearing yet hoping the best has swallowed you asleep once again.I should go to sleep I fear I'm running out of time. Sometimes I feel like I should sever my limbs so I could never crawl home back home to you waiting and watching to see if you'll follow me to my grave. I should go to sleep I'm running out of time waits for no one . I might not wake up next to you excuses, excuses, excuses, excuses make excuses for eating your young let's lick the wounds and find out where we came from when copperas has faded I hope you'll still be by my side this is not dystrophy but desire , desire for comfort in the dark call me a mockingbird and it's done.

    General Commenti like the end of this song when the music builds up and the lyrics just seem to be pouring out of his soul, i dunno how to explain it.... i also like how they used "im running out of time ... time waits for no one..." using the same time all in one sentence, i duno they go hand in hand and they did it pretty well. great song.

    General CommentThis song is just powerful to listen to. I think when he is screaming out 'excuses' he's putting in so much emotion that it sounds almost like he's going to cry. In the words used before me...great song.

    General Commentthis is my favorite song of HTSAF and probably my favorite further seems forever song in general... the first verse with the "animal" metaphor is nothing short of amazing.... and when he says "sometimes i feel i should sever my limbs, so i could never crawl home...." wow.

    General Commenti agree with all of those, this is my favorite too, the best is that whole build up starting with "excuses, exuses..." and i love "call me a mockingbird, call me a mockingbird" it's just so spectacular...

    General CommentOk so noone has said what they think the song means to them.. I'll try one. Because on the fsfboards. One of the band members said Jason wrote this song. It's about his relationship with GOD. And how he feels it has hit a rough bump with time (months, years, days, weeks IDK) idk how long. But it's about or supposedly about his relationship with GOD. If I remember correctly it was because of his busy schedule or fiancee or band that he hadnt had much time to connnect with GOD. "this is not dystrophy but desire".. its like 'this is not me losing touch with you, its more like me getting IN touch with THEM/HER/MY LIFE'.. There ya' go I tried.
