"Slipping Away" as written by Deryck Jason Whibley and Greig Andrew Nori....
I'm slipping away
In every way
I can't stay awake
I'm slipping away

But trying to make it
Through each day
I'm falling apart
In every way
I'm finding it hard
To get by
there's a hole in my heart
And I don't know why
And I've come to realize

I'm slipping away

    General CommentNot used to hearing this kinda song from Sum 41, that I can remember. I like it, though. I think they're talking about their individuality, being lost and not knowing why, or having any control over it.

    General Commenti don't really like this song as much, but it sounds like they tried to go kinda pink floyd by puttin the voices in the background

    General CommentIts very different coming from Sum 41, but i knew they were capable of this kinda song. I wish it was longer, it seems very emotional and i wanted to hear more...

    General CommentI believe this song speaks to the feeling of disillusion that is pretty common in rock stars. They were regular people but now have become celebrities that are so different from everything they knew and, as a result, feel out of touch. Sum 41 is a classic example of a band that has been exploited by fame. You can see the toll it has taken over the years on the members in songs like this and they're almost depressed demeaner they have now in interviews and public appearances.

    General CommentI just thought it was about being depressed and not knowing why, cause i can relate to it that way.
