"My Sanity On The Funeral Pyre" as written by Daniel Jacobs, Travis Miguel, Brandon Saller and Ektor Varkatzas....
Paranoia is the insect working its way
Through my subconscious thoughts
It's the larve of self doubt
Gestating in my heart as I spiral down
And everything I touch is breaking
And it falls to earth in splinters
And I shiver as every splinter
Finds its way underneath my skin
And after 22 years I can still make my skin crawl
Every shortcoming, a pitfall
On my way to making amends
Within myself to be what I became

Sometimes it feels like the whole wide world
Has made itself my enemy
But I will stand upon my own two feet
And raise my head up

I lick my wounds
Trying to cleanse the infection
Rabid and diseased reality fades away
When I pushed myself too far
A dream of emotional perfection
Has left a wounded heart
Trying to perceive the gifts inherent inside me
It's like squeezing the trigger
It's like opening first
On everyone who's let me down
On every beautiful lie that is only fiction
For the first time
I'm losing control and I like it
Freedom feels like the noose is gone

    General Commentthis song kicks @§§ soo much, to me it is about a man who had to forgive himself for ... himself because of life.. and how he is letting go of life and the freedom is like the world being lifted from his shoulders, im weird though hee hee

    General Commenti think its about a guy where everything he does goes wrong in every aspect, but thats not going to stop him or bring him down cuz he knows there will be a time where he is happy, where the "noose" of bad luck will be gone

    General CommentThis song is about Paranoia, and when he says "freedom feels like the noose is gone", he is refering to paranoia as the noose.

    General CommentIt's like a struggle people go thorugh in order to live life, it either treats you well or badly, it seems the character inthe song has had a bad life and seems to be the cause of his own pain... but the pain is paranoia 'Sometimes it feels like the whole wide world has made itself
    my enemy' the world isn't literally his enemy, but what has become of him has led him to believe this.

    General CommentI think this song is about a man trying so hard to make things how he wants but only finding failure in his attempts. It seems like everything he tries to do only makes things worse. He finds that when he just lets everything go how it will go, he is free from the struggle of perfecting something that will never be perfect.

    General CommentIt's about struggling with paranoia, feeling like you're the cause of all your own problems, and wanting to be rid of it all through the use of violence.

    kickass song at that
