"Smothered" as written by Jonathan Santos, Soren Sarkisyan, Thomas Decker and Brad Kane....
The black and cold reminds me
Of all the distance we have crossed
And if your darkness blinds me
I could never be more lost

But I'm not the one who seeks your protection
I'm not the one to share the disguise
And I'm not the one who reeks of rejection
I'm not the one to tear the same way twice

You push from the inside, smothered
You push from the inside out, smothered

Have all your walls surround me
They're closing in they block my sight
The violence around me
Found me when I could not fight

But I'm not the one to take your direction
I'm not the one who wears the disguise
And I'm not the one to share your reflection
I'm not the one you break the same way twice

I will never win
I will never win with you

I read you
I fear you round up no more than you know
I hate you
I still do every time you let me go

    General Commentthis song describes parts of A Clockwork Orange, although i doubt it was written with the movie in mind.

    "Here all your walls surround me,
    They're closing in they've locked my sight,
    Violence around me found me when i could not fight."

    if you havent seen the movie, dont worry about it

    General CommentI think its about slowly being betrayed by some one you trust and you see it coming, but you never expect the final and most lethal blow of the backstabbing motherfucker.

    General CommentI think it is about just someone who is smothering you. In this case it looks like it is intentional smothering, and this person is smothering the person becuase of somthing that happened a long time. Like its some sort of retribution and they have gotten inside the person and just slowly killing them.

    General CommentI think it's about someone who is really dependant on another person, and they're "smothering" the other person, they're sick of it. So, they try to reason with the person to be a little bit more independant, but they don't want to.
