"Death Trend Setta" as written by and Edward Sloan....
Yea it's what I've become that I fear the most
I never thought it could get so wrong.
I believe there's a part of me that I cannot beat.
A part of me that I can't defeat.
The side of me that just doesn't belong.

Judging by the weight of my fucked up world
I think maybe I should take a step back from this.
I need to quit pushing, just let it roll.

The waves that you made push me, push me.
The things that you say push me, push me.
The waves that you made push me, push me.
So I'll play God now and blow you, blow you.

Yea, it's what you've become that I took today.
You never thought I could be so strong.
You can see there's a part of me that you cannot beat.
And part of you will always remember me.
When you look around and you are so alone.

Judging by the weight of my fucked up world
I think maybe I should take a step back from this.
But you had to keep pushing so I let it go.

The waves that you made push me, push me.
The things that you say push me, push me.
The waves that you made push me, push me.
So I'll play God now and blow you, blow you.

Now that you pushed me
I bet you wish we could have made things better.
And now you see that I could be another,
Would be another death trend setta

The waves that you made push me, push me.
The things that you say push me, push me.
The waves that you made push me, push me.
So I'll play God now and blow you, blow you.

Now that you pushed me
I bet you wish we could have made things better.
And now you see that I could be another,
Would be another death trend setta

    General CommentThis song isn't bad, but it sounds nothing like Metallica, if anything it's blatently Sevendust-ish. Good song though.

    General CommentWow, no comments, I'm surprized, this song is an awesome one...
    Well, the meaning I believe is something concerning being something your not, then hating yourself for it, getting all pissed off and depressed at yourself about it that you want to just play god and kill yourself to escape it all, and I believe that its reffering to that the singer doesn't want to be a trend setter, or "Trend setta" he just wants to be himself, but because of the music industry and such today, he can't do that, by becoming famous, he has become a trend setter, and he hates himself for it...
    Thats my interpretation of the song anyway...

    General CommentThis is the only song on the Crossfade album that I don't enjoy. It's like they're trying to be something they aren't with this song, which is ironic considering the trend setter title. Feels like they were trying to follow someone else's trend with this...

    General CommentI think this song sounds like metallica a little, at least alot in the beggining, that's not a compliment cuz I cant stand metallica. It's a good song but the references to playing God creeps me out, I'm religious. Not my favorite Crossfade song but it has it's good moments I suppose. I dont think that they mean trend setter when they say "trend setta". I think death trend setta has some dark meaning about somethng. Not trend setting. I could be wrong, though.

    General CommentI think this song is about how someone was being abused by another person, and by doing so they murdered them. "Yeah, it's what I've become that I fear the most" could refer to being a murderer. "The waves that you made push me, push me
    The things that you say push me, push me" could have been abuse. "So I'll play God now and blow you, blow you away" the person murdered them.

    General CommentThis is an AWESOME song for me personally and what it means to me.

    Since my father died when i was younger i kinda turned into an aggressive person if im being honest. I had tried calming and Basically 2 years ago i was seeing a girl i was really into and i started to change. i acted all nicey, changed how i acted. was more considerate and caring but it never suited me.. i felt.

    To cut a long story short my ex-girlfriend never knew or experienced this side of me and she decided to sleep with a guy i knew. One night they approached me in a club when i thought she was at home. holding hands, they told me they were togehter and i was to move out of the flat we shared.(i admit i was in SHOCK but didnt do anythng) Im still pretty sure she didnt know but when i left the club afterwards (drunk and obviosuly down
    i got jumped on and punched in the head a few times by somebody and ran off.

    So i stopped at a mates and the next day went back to get my stuff and had a little chat with her. She basically told me she liked the bad boy in this guy (the guy had been in prison and was bigger than me).Even though i was bruised etc she didnt seem to show any consideration or care.

    All my mates told me she was a slag and told me to leave it but I few days later i saw them together and they rubbed it in my face kissing and he was grinnig like a cheshire cat. I almost instantly turned back into my oldself beat the shit out of him. He was nearly in tears and begged me to get off him and it totally shocked her as she had never seen me like that.

    Anyway the guy stayed with her 3 weeks and split up with her. So there is some justice. I saw her about a week ago and her friend told me she was sorry and wanted to go for a drink with me but i declined.

    I know it might sound childish and maybe one day ill learn to be more mature. but for these reasons i love the song and every lyric in the song suits that part of my life.

    "Yeah its what ive become that i fear the most, I never thought it could get so wrong" - I couldnt beleive i changed everything about myself for her and she walked all over me.

    "Judging by the weight of my fucked up world, I think maybe I should take a step back from this
    I need to quit pushing, just let it roll" - I couldnt let them continue to walk all over me - afterall i didnt need to be that person for her anymore.

    "Yeah, it's what you've become that I took today, You never thought I could be so strong, You can see there's a part of me that you cannot beat, And part of you will always remember me, When you look around and you are so alone" - She thought i wouldnt do a thing nor could i be so strong and she couldnt do a think about it.

    "So ill play god know and blow you, blow you away" - reminds me of when i took control and fought out at her him and literally blew her away - as she want expecting it.

    Sorry if that was a bit long but thats this songs meaning for me and it rocks because of it. I just wish crossfade had more songs like this.

    General CommentAwesome song, though I think the mean could bend to ones own life, nice in that way. I always tend to think of the vamp/goth sec we have around here. The lines

    "And now you see that I could be another
    Would be another death trend setta"

    Reminds me of a friend/Girlfriend who tried to push to hang out with her and her friends who were heavy, I mean HEEAAVY into this shit, and after I went to one party where I thought some chick was going to bleed my ass and left. She couldn't/wouldn't listen to the fact that the "crowd" there scared the hell out of me and we broke up. The lines when I first heard them almost mdae me laugh at the experiance.

    The meaning to me is that most people are a lot stronger then they think we are, and if someone pushes you hard enough and far enough then you will eventually push back and scare the hell out of them.
