"Sadie" as written by and Derek R Grant Daniel Michael Andriano....
You're on your own my little nightmare you cannot stay here
It's far too bright for you
If they attack you just lay there,
Play dead dear, it's your only hope of pulling through.

And seconds they seem like a lifetime.
A dream, recurring, a dream that can't come true.
And they'll pin it all on you
After all you've been put through.

"Sadie G. she's crazy, see?"
That's what the white coats say.
Now Ms. Susan A. is losing
Every opportunity to put us all away.

You're on your own my little nightmare.
Your job is done here.
You've scared them all to death.
If they revive them just sit there.
Just smile dear. Make them thankful for every breath.

The sentence may seem like a lifetime, a scream, that curdling the blood they found on you.
And your knives and clothing too.
Charlie's broken .22

"Sadie G. she's crazy, see?"
That's what the white coats say.
Now Ms. Susan A. is losing
Every opportunity.

Well they found you and they shipped you up the river the same way that you've bound and gaged.
You've shot and stab.
You tried to set them free, but they've thrown away the keys.

"I think that if I found a god to me that was so beautiful that I'd do anything for him.
I'd do anything for god.
Even murder, if I believed it was god, how could it not be right?
Because he said it was.
I have no remorse for the killer inside of me, I have no guilt in me"

[Repeat: x4]
Whoa

    General CommentThat's what the insert of the Promo says:

    You’re on your own my little nightmare, you cannot stay here
    It’s far too bright for you. If they attack you just lay there, Play dead dear,
    it’s your only hope of pulling through.
    And seconds they seem like a lifetime.
    A dream, recurring, a dream that can’t come true.
    And they’ll pin it all on you
    after all you’ve been put through.
    “Sadie G. She’s crazy, see?”
    that’s what the white coats say.
    Now Ms. Susan A. you’re losing
    every opportunity to put us all away.
    You’re on your own my little nightmare.
    Your job is done here.
    You’ve scared them all to death.
    If they revive them just sit here.
    Just smile dear. Make them thankful for every breath.
    This sentence may seem like a lifetime,
    a scream, that curdling
    The blood they found on you.
    And your knives and clothing too.
    Charlie’s broken .22
    Well they found you
    and they shipped you up the river
    the same way
    That you bound and gagged.
    You shot and stabbed.
    You tried to set them free,
    but they’ve thrown away the keys.

    General CommentIt's a great song. Trio's long time merch girl Heather Hannoura reads Sadie's little confession thing during the bridge.

    General CommentI heard this song live for the first time on the punkvoter tour, it gave me chills at the end of the song when he said..."You know the light at the end of the tunnel you see when you die? I think i just saw it..."

    General CommentDVagnoni87, the album insert says Nolan McGuire does "additional" guitar on Sadie - which is probably the solo you're on about. Although it would be nice if it was Matt ( he himself admits he's a "hack at guitar")!!!
