"Splinters" as written by Tony Hajjar and Mike Zarin....
A cabin built for families, not for one
These hills are solitary, lonely rivers run
Ocean crash duets with cars in canyon pass
Oh, the mountians, majestic force humility

This coffin's in my shadow, tied to me
There's questions I can't follow, colors I can't see
Days scream past, nights are long in city escape
From sunset to mourning mocks eternity

Falling, falling
This life is in splinters
And hands over eyesprotect innocent blinding
Falling, falling
Balance is broken, a lifetime of choking
Leaves you blue

This isolation chamber, disguised but true
Enough to kill this stranger, nothing left to do
Freedom's lost its clarity, and breathing comes fast
This escept is esssential to live another day

    General CommentMy perception: This song is about Jim dealing with a loved-ones(perhaps his grandfather's or cousins's) death.

    General CommentI think this song is about swiss cheese because Jim said he really likes swiss cheese.

    General CommentSounds like describing the beauty, frustration and possibly a drug-fueled escape from reality.

    The way the guitars tear at each other in this song, over the backdrop of Hajjar's drumming, with Jim's grinding vocals, is delightful. :)
