"Cessation" as written by and Adam/jordan Nutter....
I never want to be
I never want to be like you
I want to be myself
But you make me out to be somebody else
And I live in pain
And I love the darkness of my mind
'cause it makes me feel
You know it makes me feel like I'm alive
I'm alive
Oh I'm alive

Far across the land
Yeah far across the land
They understand, they understand the lies
But nobody here want to question why
It's not what I need
But if I cut myself I'm bound to bleed
I don't want to die
But it makes me feel like alive
I'm alive
Oh I'm alive
I'm alive
Oh I'm alive
I'm alive
Oh I'm alive
I'm alive
Oh I'm alive

Don't make the same mistake
Don't make cessation, no

I'm sick of being the crowd
I'm sick of being the crowd
It's up to me
I'm not gonna crack
But the demons inside
Keep on coming back
I've got to fight the fear
I've got to know that how I feel is real
I've got to speak my mind
'cause it makes me feel like I'm alive
I'm alive
Oh I'm alive
I'm alive
Oh I'm alive
I'm alive
Oh I'm alive
I'm alive
Oh I'm alive

Let go

Oh I'm alive
I'm alive
Oh I'm alive
I'm alive

    General CommentThis is such a strong song. They should do more like this. Repetition of "I don't wanna die" on this album, and getting lost in an unthinking crowd. The urgent sound of the music fits brilliantly with the lyrics.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Music songs. Love the sense of urgency, as ReActor mentioned. I think it has something to do with being young and enraged - at least that's what the instrumental and the lyrics make me think.

    General CommentOne of my fave songs by these guys. I think the song's based on venting frustration caused by fighting to remain pure, and to stay true to your beliefs and ideals despite other influences.

    General Comment'It's not what I need
    But if I cut myself I’m bound to bleed
    I don't want to die
    But it makes me feel like alive '

    i've often heard people saying these are depressing lyrics but i honestly disagree.
    Rob is just stating a fact.
