"My Throat Is An Open Grave" as written by and Ryan Clark Don Clark....
We lay face down in pale solitude
To save face, we pulled our walls in front of you
To the same place where we danced in front of you
We fell from grace and watched the hope fall from your face
This isn't me I used to say
All the love was so gone
It feels good to be alive
I've been dead for so long
And all those broken promises
I can't face
Afraid if someone notices
I lose my place
Fractured, broken, paralyzed
I need some space
Tear me open, analyze
This isn't me I used to say
All the love was so gone
It feels good to be alive
I've been dead for so long
Wake up screaming, I'm awake and dreaming,
And I won't stop breathing
'til my heart stops beating
This isn't me, I used to say
All the love was so gone
All the love was so gone
It feels good to be alive
I've been dead for so long.

    'My Throat Is An Open Grave' is taken from Romans 3:13, where the Bible
    speaks about the powers of sin that bind us and cause us to fall short of
    God's glory. It says: "None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands,
    no one seeks for God. All have turned aside, together they have gone wrong;
    no one does good, not even one. Their throat is an open grave, they use
    their tongues to deceive. The venom of asps is under their lips." In the
    song, it tells about the gift of grace given by God despite our sinful
    nature, and how good it feels to know that you have everlasting life because

    Old sin makes us die. When we accept God, we are ALIVE and not DEAD.

    General Comment"This isn't me i used to say" means that he used to deny his sin saying, "I don't do that!" But when he became a Christian he became alive. With that, the rest is self-explanitory.

    General Commenti personally think think when he says this isnt me i used to say, he is denying his religion or his TRUE self infront of other people, but now, he lets it out

    General CommentWhen he says "this isnt me i used to say" i always think that he's talking about when he used to be depressed or without God, and he knew that the sickness and the demons inside of him weren't the true him, so he says "this isn't me."
