"What Drives The Weak" as written by Matthew Bachand, Jason Bittner, Jonathan Donais, Brian Fair and Paul Romanko....
This time released security
Controlled dose of tranquility
Forgetfulness washes over me
Put to rest the voices of insanity

Only the cinders remain
As another night
Becomes a yesterday

Come on! Anesthetize the panic
It is what drives the weak
You're gone! Anesthetize the panic
Putting all uncertainties to sleep

Not an altered state of mind
But a safer place in an unsafe world
Within the nearness of death
Rapture in the skip of a heartbeat

    General CommentThe whole song to me seems like it is talk about mind altering substances . . . whether alcohol, medication, other illegal drugs . . . whatever. And it seems like brian is talking about how so many people rely on it to get through life because they are weak and the world seems scary and unsafe. Rock on whiskey wagon!!!!

    General CommentSeems to me it's about people who get anxiety attacks. All the days that pass just seem to become a blur and you can't remember anything from the day before. And once the panic is over there's that relaxed state of mind that lasts for about 10 mninutes.

    General Comment@suburbangraffiti;

    It's called "new wave of american heavy metal" which i dont like, cause there are also bands from europe that are included...

    This is probably my favorite SF song... but all songs are great so its hard to say sometimes...

    General CommentI'm pretty sure I read somewhere that this song is about getting drunk and fucked up or something, nonetheless its definitely about alcohol, anti-depressents and all that,

    General CommentI love this song - my favourite on WW. I don't know why, but Shadows Fall seems to stand out from all the other generic metalcore bands for me.

    Anyway, this song could be about any form of anti-depressant. Kinda cruel to call them "Weak", though.
