"Inspiration On Demand" as written by Matthew Bachand, Jason Bittner, Jonathan Donais, Brian Fair and Paul Romanko....
Where has it all gone?
Have all of the words escaped?

Inspiration on demand
Emotions all displaced

'And I will wander endlessly
Seeking all the answers that I let slip
through my fingers.
I will wander endlessly
Seeking all the answers that
I let slip and fall away.'

Turn it all around
It melts into sound
(unfolding... ever growing)

Torn from my rest
Though I still fight to stay.
The images dissolve
As the day invades

A second to react
The mind too slow to act
(Unfolding... ever growing)

Drown the voices of restraint
Make them choke to silence

Incinerate the ropes
And embrace the hope
(Unfolding... ever growing)

Splintering the doors
Free the mind to soar
(Unfolding... ever growing)

Turn it all around
It melts into sound

    General Commentyeah, its a good song but NOT their best...the video is pretty awesome and I love the solo in this song very much. But I think this song sounds too much like Metallica. Awesome fucking song though, Shadows Fall own.

    General CommentI really like these 2 lines:

    "Turn it all around
    It melts into sound"

    You don't become a talented and skilled musician, or any kind of true success for that matter, by being a pessimist.

    General CommentThis song to me looks like it is about depression. When you are depressed your emotions are all messed up, you really cant explain how you feel. You have negative thoughts and even tho you look for reasons to live, when you find them your mentality will refuse to accept it and just let them slip away. But then the lines "Turn it all around, It melts into sound" lead me to to believe that is possibly Brian Fair singing about being depressed and finding music to be the thing to bring him out of it. Because the second half of the song is optimistic,
    "Incinerate the ropes
    And embrace the hope"
    I believe that symbolizes breaking free of the grasp of depression and looking forward to a happier life. Just my thoughts, maybe they sound completely ludicris to you,

    General CommentThe part where that guitarist dude sings "Seeking all" and "Unfolding...ever growing" is awesome. And dammit the video makes no sense to me, but it is awesome nonetheless.

    General CommentWow, Shadows Fall is staggeringly good.

    1980's - Metallica
    1990's - Pantera
    2000's - Shadows Fall???

    lol, not QUITE there yet, but it's a good start to their career. Their roots are a lot like Metallica's. Elektra isn't really that big a label and neither is Shadows Fall at this time. They're releasing one more album for this label, then moving onto bigger and better things... just hope they don't sell-out like Metallica did.

    In all honesty though, we could be watching something special unfold, cherish it.

    Their lyrics are short but incredibly powerful. Fair might be a little better served to scream a little less, but you know what? That's their sound, more power to 'em. Jonathan Donais and Matt... something are incredibly creative guitarists. Bittner is one of the best drummers out there, behind Danny Carey though.

    You're right, Shadows Fall does sound A LOT like Metallica. I don't think they're stealing from them though. They have many that don't even sound remotely like Metallica. Although, Those Who Cannot Speak sounds eerily similar to To Live Is To Die...

    General CommentThe song is about where the band gets their inspiration from, which is most likely negative emotions in their every-day lives. Hence the title "Inspiration on Demand," since there is so much there that they can pretty much turn anything into a song.
