"Metalingus" as written by and Thomas Scott Phillips Mark Tremonti....
I've been defeated and brought down
Dropped to my knees when hope ran out
The time has come to change my ways

On this day I see clearly everything has come to life
A bitter place and a broken dream
And we'll leave it all, leave it all behind

I'll never long for what might have been
Regret won't waste my life again
I won't look back
I'll fight to remain:

On this day I see clearly everything has come to life
A bitter place and a broken dream
And we'll leave it all behind

On this day its so real to me
Everything has come to life
Another chance to chase a dream
Another chance to feel
Chance to feel alive

Fear will kill me, all I could be
Lift these sorrows
Let me breathe, could you set me free
Could you set me free

On this day I see clearly everything has come to life
A bitter place and a broken dream
And we'll leave it all behind
On this day its so real to me
Everything has come to life
Another chance to chase a dream
Another chance to feel
Chance to feel alive

    General CommentLet me start off by saying that I don't know why people don't know about Alter Bridge. All aspects of the band are solid. Drums are clean and clear, Bass is deep and always on cue, Guitar is heart felt and face melting, and Vocals impeccable and full of emotion. Alter Bridge as a whole... the most melodically focused and in tune band out there right now.

    About this song, it is the heaviest song on this album, agreed. It is however dwarfed by the grungy, deep, mean, but clean sound of Blackbird. Which is was badas* album. AB comes to Minneapolis this time around on 11/15/07 just a few days away. I await the amazing melodic rock, as after that concert I can finally die a happy man. :-D

    General CommentWhen Creed was still around, Mark Tremonti always liked Metallica, and was a big fan of them growing up. When you hear the end of this song, that is extremely evident. By the way, Scott's drumming in this song is AMAZING.

    General CommentI believe this song is about having a dream or life in general come crashing down, then realizing that it's not over, but life will go on.

    General CommentYeh i also agree about it being about a dream/life come crashing down on you. Then realising that it isnt so bad afterall, seeing things clearly and seeing that not all is lost, then leaving that sad negative place behind and continuing to get on with life. This is actualy my favourite Alter Bridge song, it has great lyrics and a great tune. I first heard it on WWE Raw as it is a wrestlers entrance music, good stuff!
